WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?
A chemical peel is an advanced skin care treatment that uses only the highest quality of chemical solutions that are gentle enough to touch the skin, yet strong enough to produce profound results. Chemical peel solutions are a series of acids that are made for the skin in a multitude of strengths. The Superficial Peel is composed of alpha-hydroxy acid, which is the mildest form of a chemical peel. Even though the superficial peel is mild, it will still produce highly desired results. The Medium Peel is a peel that is made up of Glycolic or Trichloroacetic acid that is strong enough to penetrate the upper and middle layers of the skin removing unwanted dead skin cells. The strongest form of a chemical peel is the Deep Peel, infused with Trichloroacetic and Phenol acid. This peel is able to remove moderate lines, age spots, freckles, and some shallow scarring.
Pro Tip: A skin care professional will decide through a comprehensive consultation exactly which type of chemical peel strength is best for your skin. With many years of experience in medical spas, you can expect the most elite service while receiving the advanced skin care treatment better known as the chemical peel.
A CHEMICAL PEEL SOLVES YOUR SKIN CARE CONCERNS
Chemical Peels have the ability to work miracles for your skin and confidence. A chemical peel is able to reduce fine lines and wrinkles – including unwanted lines around the eyes and mouth. Peels are able to treat skin that has been damaged by the sun and wrinkles caused by the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. Mild scarring, age spots, freckles, and dark patches are skin problems that can be easily taken care of by an advanced chemical peel treatment. Chemical peels stimulate extreme exfoliation on the upper layer to the lower layer of the skin known as the dermis. When this process occurs, the skin begins to peel away – allowing the newly regenerated and tightened skin to come to the surface. The idea of this treatment is to reach the brighter, even-toned, tighter and better quality skin that lies below the epidermis. A peel can be one of the best things you can do to restore and revitalize your skin.
Pro Tip: Chemical peels are not painful, although they can cause some stinging, redness, and irritation since you are chemically altering the skin. It is important to consult with your esthetician regarding proper care before and after your chemical peel. Ensuring proper healing will deliver optimum results for your skin.
IS A CHEMICAL PEEL FOR EVERYONE?
No, unfortunately, Chemical peels are not for everyone. People with these conditions are not able to receive a chemical peel treatment whatsoever: scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases, cardiac abnormalities, rosacea, blood-clotting problems, bacterial or fungal infection (immunosuppression), or scars that have happened within the last six months. This is not to say that these skin conditions can never have skin care treatments; it is best to have a procedure that is less intense on your skin.
Pro Tip: There are a few other skin conditions that require consultation before receiving the skin care treatment. A decision will be made during a consultation at J Marie Skin Studios. This studio is highly trained and educated in the skin care industry. With this being said, if this treatment is not for you, a professional at J Marie Skin Studios will be able to offer an amazing alternative.
