WHAT TO EXPECT
Benefits of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels provide a number of benefits to the skin. Peels effectively remove toxins from the skin’s pores, as well as dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, providing a deep cleansing treatment for the skin. Additionally, chemical peels deliver vital skin nutrients strategically formulated to treat specific skin conditions, as well as restoring smoothness, radiance, and firmness.
Chemical Peels at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa
At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we use a variety of chemical peels to treat different skin conditions and provide personalized treatments for each of our patients. Chemical peels are recommended for you based on your skin type and condition, as well as your unique concerns. We use only top name products developed in the world’s most advanced and reputable skin care laboratories, such as SkinMedica®, VI® Peels, and ZO® Skin Care.
- Glycolic Peels
Glycolic peels are the mildest, most superficial chemical peels. Glycolic peels provide gentle exfoliation of the skin’s outermost layer to cleanse, detoxify, and awaken a new layer of fresh, healthy skin cells. These gentle peels are effective for treating minor skin problems, such as fine lines, as well as hydrating thirsty skin and restoring a luminous glow. Glycolic peels take about 15 minutes to apply and provide immediately noticeable improvements. These peels are great for ongoing regular use to keep your skin bright and healthy.
- Salicylic Acid Peels
Salicylic Acid peels are similar to Glycolic acid peels and provide a gentle exfoliation of the skin, removing surface impurities and imperfections. Salicylic acid peels are effective for treating mild discoloration and sun spots, freckles, blemishes, and acne scars. You may choose from the SkinMedica® line of Salycilic Acid Peels, including Illuminize®, Rejuvenize® and Vitalize®, depending on your specific skin condition.
- Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels
TCA peels are effective for treating lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone, age and sun spots, acne blemishes and scars, and is useful for treating enlarged pores and even removing pre-cancerous skin lesions.
- VI Peel®
VI Peel® provides a variety of formulas to treat aging skin, more advanced aging skin, acneic skin, acne scars, age spots, hyper-pigmentation, and surface skin damage. Developed by one of the world’s leading cosmetic scientists, VI Peels are among the most respected skin care treatments in the field.
- Phenol and Croton Oil Peel
Phenol and croton oil peels are deep chemical peels, performed under mild anesthesia, which represent the gold standard in chemical skin rejuvenation. These peels remove wrinkles, age and sun spots, restore an even tone to sun damaged skin, and improve mild scarring, while triggering the production of collagen to help heal and nourish the skin. Deep peels may produce as much as 25-30 % tightening of the facial skin as a consequence of collagen production. These deeper peels may take as long as 8-14 days to completely peel away damaged skin and reveal a new layer of smooth, clear skin.
- ZO® Controlled Depth Peel
The ZO® Skin Health Controlled Depth Peel is known as the Non-Surgical Facelift Chemical Peel. An intensive Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) peel, the ZO® Controlled Depth Peel rejuvenates and improves skin conditions such as irregular pigmentation, lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and enlarged pores, while boosting hydration and improving elasticity through increased collagen production.
What to Expect After a Chemical Peel
Deeper chemical peels typically work by causing your outermost layer of skin to peel off, as it does following sunburn. This peels away toxins, impurities, and surface imperfections from the skin’s surface, producing clearer, smoother, and firmer skin. The act of peeling also activates increased production of collagen, a natural substance known to nourish and hydrate skin cells, making your skin look healthier and smoother. For optimal results, resist the temptation to touch or pull on the skin while it is peeling, and allow the process to happen gradually. You must also use an effective sunscreen following a chemical peel to protect new skin from sun damage.
