What are medical peels?
Medical peels have replaced the harsh chemical peels of yesterday. The newest peels on the market do not give the downtime that the chemical peels of the past provided. Medical peels offer stronger ingredients than your typical spa treatments and can provide you with optimal results. We offer a variety of medical peels depending on your individual concerns.
There are three common variations of peels, classified as:
These classifications refer to the depth of the skin penetration caused by the exfoliating agent. Superficial peels treat the outer layer of the skin, called the epidermis, and mildly stimulate collagen formation in the uppermost part of the dermis.
Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and Beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs) are two commonly used peeling agents. They provide significant benefits by helping to smooth rough, dry skin, and improving the texture and tone of sun-damaged skin.
What advantages do peels offer?
- Smooth skin and brighten your complexion
- Improve fine lines & skin texture
- Control acne
- Improve pigmentation and discoloration
- Reduce pore size
- Enhance laser treatments
Patients with the following conditions may be offered a series of medicals peels to enhance their treatments:
- Acne scarring
- Keratosis Pilaris (commonly known as the bumps on the back of your arms)
- Hyperpigmentation or sun-damaged skin
- Wrinkles or aging skin
What should I expect from the results?
We recommend that you schedule periodic AHA peels to maintain your results.
AHAs are often referred to as fruit acids. They include glycolic acid (from sugar cane), lactic acid (from sour milk), citric acid (from citrus fruits) and tartaric acid (from fermented grapes). Glycolic acid is most frequently used for superficial peels and in cosmetic formulations. When used as a peel, the pH is low (more acidic), and as a result, more irritating.
Treatment recovery is rapid, usually consisting of minor flaking and mild redness for several days. 4-6 treatments are generally required to obtain the best results.*
