Peel Away The Mysteries of Acids
Beautiful skin doesn’t have to be expensive. As a matter of fact, skin peels provide an effective, less expensive and less invasive alternative.
Peels when appropriately administered are some of the most powerful nonsurgical skin improvements available. They remove cellular buildup, stimulate skin regeneration and reduce wrinkles, fine lines, large pores and oiliness. They also help clear blemishes, treat hyper-pigmentation and improve overall texture and tone.
Apprehension often surrounds peels, much of which stems from the many myths and misconceptions surrounding the process. One common belief is that chemical peels are contraindicated for those with rosacea, pigmented or higher Fitzpatrick skin types. Various levels of superficial chemical peels are the answer. Most skin types, including those with pigmentation issues or darker skin respond well to progressive treatments. In fact, peels can have a very positive effect.
At the core of a peel treatment, highly specialized acids and enzyme solutions are applied to remove damaged layers of cells from the skin’s outer surface – revealing more glowing, youthful skin. Treatments vary in intensity and a client’s skin type and desired results will dictate which peel treatment is best. Intensities include progressive, mid-depth and deep peels.
Progressive peels. Typically the mildest course of treatment, progressive peels usually do not cause immediate exfoliation because they only remove the stratum corneum. Repeated services will create mild sloughing with cumulative effects. The result is refining, mild peel with no downtime.
Mid-depth peels. Mid-depth peels affect the intraepidermal layer with exfoliation occurring within two to three days of application. Rejuvenation follows little to no downtime. Peeling usually consists of light flaking similar to a sunburn peel.
Deeper peels. Restore and renew skin with the most dramatic results by using deep peels. The skin undergoes considerable peeling rather than flaking, because deep peels affect the deepest intraepidermal layers. Typically three or four days after application, the skin may become temporarily brown and crusty. The entire process takes about seven to ten days.
Progressive and mid depth peels can be performed monthly for as long as needed. Deeper peels should be administered 6 weeks apart and not recommended to do more than 3-4 per year.
