Have you been considering a chemical peel?
Are you wondering if chemical peels are right for you?
Do you just want to know more about peels, in general?
The you are definitely in the right place.
I am a big fan of chemical peels, because they can address so many skin concerns. Chemical peels come in all forms and are not all created equal.
When most people think of a chemical peel, they think of heavy shedding, burning and discomfort. But like I said earlier they are not all created equal.
So what is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a non-invasive treatment that exfoliates the top layers of your skin using acids, to reveal a healthier brighter complexion.
Peels are also made in different strengths: Superficial, Medium and Deep.
In the aesthetics environment, we typically offer superficial and medium strength. Deep peels are more medical and require more downtime.
What skin conditions can chemical peels treat?
- Chronic sun damage
- Hyperpigmentation (brown spots)
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Large, visible pores
During your treatment, your skincare professional will conduct a skin analysis and discuss with you your concerns to determine what peel would be best for your skin. Your skin will be cleansed and prepped to apply the peel solution. You may experience tingling, itchiness and mild burning sensations which is completely normal. Some peels are removed and some are actually self neutralizing.
After Your Peel
I even recommend using a tyrosinase inhibitor prior to and after your peel helps to slow down the melanin production ensuring a safe peel experience.
When can I get another peel?
Depending on the depth of the peel and what we are trying to address, I personally recommend another peel in 2-6 weeks.
Peels are also best done in a series of 3-6 sessions, but of course your skincare therapist will know whats best for you and your skin.
Final results are not always seen in one session and just because you didn’t peel doesn’t mean that your peel isn’t working. Chemical peels accelerate the skin cell turnover, to renew your overall skin appearance.
I hope that this answered some of your questions about peels.
