Chemical Peels

 

What Are Chemical Peels?

 

SkinCeuticals®  and Skin Medica® Chemical Peels are solutions applied to the skin to peel the top layers of the skin and control breakouts, improve texture, refine the appearance of pore size, and brighten your complexion. These treatments are called “Peels,” but these treatments don’t always make your skin peel. See below for detailed explanations of what to expect!  Our SkinCeuticals peels include; Lactic 2%, which is a brightening and moisturizing peel, great to do before photos or events, Glycolic 20%, which targets hyper-pigmentation, Salicylic 20% for acne breakouts and oily skin, as well as the Advanced Corrective Peel, which is a Lactic 14%, Salicylic 14% and Phenyletnyl Resorcinol 10%. We also offer the Skin Medica Vitalize Peel fpr .

What to Expect and How to Choose my Peel

What Peel you decide to do completely depends on what your skincare needs are.

Salicylic Peels will treat oily and acne-prone skin. Perfect for clearing up breakouts!

Lactic Peels will hydrate your skin, give you a fresh glow, and are safe to do during pregnancy.

Glycolic Peels will target light pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and will firm and tighten. This is the perfect anti-aging peel, as well as our number one choice to prep the skin for microneedling and IPL treatments.

Advanced Corrective Peels target sun damage and pigmentation issues, and are safe for all skin types.

Vitalize Peels are perfect for improving texture, sun damage, and stave off the signs of aging skin.

Your treatment includes a cleanse, using medical grade products, followed by the chemical peel solution being applied to your skin. After the peel has activated, we will put a soothing gel on your skin, as well as an SPF.

How Much Do Peels Cost?

Lactic, Glycolic and Salicylic peels are $79 each. The Advanced Pigment Corrector and Vitalize Peels are $150.

How Long Do Results Last?

The Glycolic and Lactic peels will give you a dewey and radiant look for up to a week, with long term results of improved texture, coloring, and lessening of fine lines after repeated treatments. The Salicylic peel will help to clear up acne break outs within a week. These peels can be done every two weeks.

The Advanced Pigment Corrector and Vitalize Peels have long term results after repeated treatments.

How Long Will My Appointment Take?

Our light peels (Glycolic, Salicylic, and Lactic) take about 20 minutes. The Advanced Pigment Corrector Peel and Vitalize Peel take about 30 minutes.

Do Peels Hurt?

Our light peels can make you feel some tingling and slight stinging as the molecules activate in the top layers of the skin, but the solution is neutralized after 2 minutes and you will go back to feeling totally normal. The Advanced Pigment Corrector and Vitalize peels are a little more intense and strong, and most clients report feeling that same tingling and stinging, accompanied by a little heat.

Is There Any Prep For This Treatment?

Discontinue use of retinols 7 days before and after your treatment. We can’t treat sunburned skin, or skin that has any open wounds or rashes, so other than making sure your skin is treatable, just come in to your appointment and we will take care of the rest!

Is There Any Downtime or Recovery After This Treatment?

The light peels are totally non-invasive, so besides a little redness (that is usually gone by the time you get home,) there is no downtime or recovery. Some patients will report having a little dryness and flaking, but no actual peeling.

The Advanced Pigment Corrector Peel and Vitalize Peel do have a little social downtime. Most people are a little red for about 24 hours, followed by 3-7 days of peeling. The peeling process can be as minimal as just some slight flaking, or can be like shedding like a snake! It depends on how much skin there is to exfoliate, as well as how in-depth we go with your peel. You and your esthetician can decide together what the best options are for you!

Are There Any Products I Should Be Using At Home?

We recommend using medical grade skincare products all the time! Our personal favorites are the SkinCeuticals Foaming Cleanser for sensitive skin, $29, SkinCeuticals LHA Cleanser for acne-prone skin, $39, and the Skin Medica AHA/BHA Cleanser for exfoliation (or an everyday cleanser for aging skin.) For moisture, we all swear by Skin Medica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, $99, and Skin Ceuticals Triple Lipid Restore, $79. And of course you should always be applying at least a 32 SPF daily. We recommend SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion SPF 50, $29, and Skin Medica Essential Defense SPF 32, $29.
