Treatment Information

What Is A Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are special non invasive skin treatments that remove the outer layers of micro-damaged skin- signaling new cells to emerge, increasing collagen, elastin, and hydration levels thereby producing clearer and more younger looking and acting skin. Additional benefits may include the drying of active acne, dislodging or purging of blackheads, reduction of superficial wrinkles or scarring, improving the appearance of mature or aging skin, correcting sun damage, lightening pigmentation disorders such as sun or age spots, and controlling the effects of other health and aging skin challenges.

Is It Safe?

Chemical peels are absolutely safe, each of our estheticians are licensed with extensive training in each of the peels offered. With any chemical peel it is very important to wear a physical sunscreen the following days after your appointment to ensure the best results.

Who Is The Treatment For?

Chemical peels are best suited for anyone struggling with acne or acne scarring, hyperpigmentation or sun damage, or fine lines and wrinkles.

What Should I Expect From A Chemical Peel?

Depending on your treatment, you may experience some temporary discomfort, including stinging or warm flushing, similar to a mild burning sensation. This is NORMAL and generally fades within 5 minutes. During the few minutes following the initial treatment, you will experience tightening of the skin to varying degrees. The skin can appear red and become progressively rosier, occasionally turning a tan to brown color depending, upon formula and application variances. No guarantee is made or implied regarding results, peeling times or level of discomfort. For most individuals, peeling starts at day 5 but can be as early as 48 hours. It is impossible to pre-determine how much peeling will occur. Deeper penetration and more active solutions may result in sensitivity for several hours after the procedure, with some significant peeling for up to 10 days. Your skin can feel tight, dry, and you may experience redness for up to 10 days.

What Are The Advantages?

There are many benefits that chemical peels can offer such as improved acne breakouts and scarring, brightening of dark/sun spots and melasma, improved texture for smoother looking skin as well as anti-aging benefits for more youthful looking skin.

How Do I Prepare For A Chemical Peel?

To enhance your treatments and relieve discomfort for the period following your treatment, you are advised to do the following: - Notify your esthetician of ANY concerns - Do not use tanning beds, and avoid sun exposure as much as possible. Apply sunscreen daily, every two hours for at least the first 2 weeks following treatment.

Steps to remember pre-peel: -STOP use of any Chemical, manual, or enzyme exfoliants at least 3 days prior to treatment. -STOP use of any products containing ANY form of Retinoids in the area being treated. - Avoid anything that can cause the body to heat up 24 hours before treatment including but not limited to: saunas, tanning, tanning beds, exercise.

What Do I Do After A Chemical Peel?

Steps to remember post-peel:

  • Avoid all sun exposure

  • Avoid exercise and sweating for 48 to 72 hours.

  • Avoid having the shower spray directly on the face or other area treated for 24 hours

  • Do not pick, rub, or unnecessarily touch the face or other area treated

  • Avoid shampoo on area treated for 24 hours

 

COMPLIANCE in your skincare program will determine the level of success and outcome of your treatment. Effective, long term results are dependent upon you.

Inform your esthetician of physician of any recreational plans following your treatment.

How Soon Will I Receive Results?

Results may vary depending on the peel used and your compliance with your post care instruction. After your skin has fully completed the peeling process you will see improvements in your skin concerns but it may take multiple peels with different frequencies to achieve the best results.

Is It Pain Free?

Some discomfort may be present for our deeper peels. Once the peel is applied to the skin you may feel some activity for about 5 minutes and once the peel has been neutralized the activity will diminish. We will place a cooling fan to help with any sensation or heat that you may feel while the peel is placed on the skin.
