What chemical peel may be right for me?
These peels are combination peels of different types of acids. They can be used to decrease mild to moderate hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and signs of aging, as well as provide a skin lightening effect and medium depth exfoliation of the treated skin.
These peels provide an exfoliating effect and can be used for acne patients to decrease the appearance of oily, blemish-prone skin impacted by whiteheads, blackheads, papules and pustules.
Rosacea & Redness
These peels provide superficial exfoliation and can be used to help decrease occasional to permanent skin redness providing general improvement in skin color, texture and pore size. This peel system is formulated for patients experiencing redness, or patients who have rosacea, or otherwise sensitive or reactive skin.
These peels can be used to decrease mild to moderate hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, delivering an overall lightening and brightening appearance.
Chemical peels for sensitive skin.
What can I expect during a chemical peel?
A peel procedure takes about 10 to 20 minutes depending on the type of peel and number of layers applied. During the procedure it is possible to experience temporary mild tingling, itching, and heating sensations. After neutralization the symptoms should subside.
What happens after a chemical peel?
Depending on the peel strength and type you may experience mild to moderate skin scaling and redness with healing expected at around 7 to 14 days. Lotion or cream should be applied during that time until the skin heals. After a chemical peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so limit your time in the sun and wear a broad spectrum, physical sunscreen like EltaMD above SPF 30.
A treatment series of 3 to 5 peels, with 3 to 4 weeks' time between each peel, is often necessary to achieve desired results.
Individual results may vary.
A consultation is necessary to assess your own goals and unique needs. A consultation fee of $100 is applied to your visit and can be immediately transferred to your treatment plan.
