A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off; however, the peeling may not be noticeable to the human eye. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The depth of the peel with greatly effect the amount of downtime you may have. It may be recommended to start off with a mild peel and build up to a stronger solution.
Below is a list of the Chemical Peels we offer
1. 25% Glycolic/ 5% Lactic/ Charcoal Detox Chemical Peel
Out of all the chemical peels available, the glycolic peel penetrates your skin the deepest, so it’s the best one for exfoliation. This is due to glycolic acid’s small molecular structure, which allows it to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin. The lactic acid is not only gentle on easily irritated skin, but also moisturizes dry skin while the charcoal detoxifies and leaves the skin clear and radiant.
2. 30% Salicylic Acid Chemical Peel
Acne can be embarrassing and annoying to deal with. If you are having an active breakout, a beta peel will help. It contains salicylic acid which is great for exfoliation and taking care of the bacteria caused by acne. Salicylic acid also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
3. 14% Jessners Peel
The Jessner peel was first formulated over a hundred years ago, and it’s still in use today thanks to its ability to reduce dark patches, age spots, even out skin tone and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Jessner is a blend of lactic and salicylic acids ranging from 7-14%.
Trichloroacetic Acid, often referred to as TCA, is an effective chemical agent used to exfoliate and renew the skin from a superficial to deep level. There are many benefits of superficial peels. Among the most notable is the ability to adjust the depth to fit the particular skin problem. As more coats are applied, the peel will get deeper, as the solution goes looking for protein to neutralize itself.
5. VI Peel
VI Peels are medical-grade chemical peels and are typically used to treat acne, acne scarring, fine lines, age spots/skin discoloration, sun damage spots, wrinkles, melasma, enlarged pores and more. The VI peel goes deeper than many other peels, penetrating the dermis of the skin. It is most often done on the face, neck and chest. VI Peels are effective for all skin types, tones and ages. VI chemical peels, with their many acids and vitamins, attack skin problems at the cellular level, rather than just the surface.
