Beta hydroxy, salicylic acid chemical peels, are known to have superior exfoliating properties without causing the irritation associated with more aggressive peels. Because salicylic acid peels exfoliate both the surface of the skin and within the pores themselves, they are a perfect option for patients who wish to rid themselves of years of dry, dull skin build-up. Salicylic acid peels are a safe and effective way to improve the look of sun-damaged and aging skin, and they are also beneficial in the reduction of mild acne scars.
Lactic acid is a naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acid found in fruits and other foods. Lactic acid is very gentle and is a great option for sensitive skin
Glycolic acid peels are the most common chemical peels using alpha hydroxy acid, or AHA. Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that occurs naturally in sugar cane. These peels are a popular way to slough off layers of dead skin cells. They are also popular because they encourage skin cell regeneration, require little or no recovery time, and can be performed with no anesthesia. During AHA chemical peels, the glycolic acid penetrates the surface layers of the skin and loosens the dry, thick skin that makes the complexion look aged and dull. A more youthful skin texture is revealed.
Cryogenic Therapy is a skin freezing process. Carbon Dioxide is applied to the face in light, circular motions following the glycolic and lactic acid peels. This procedure relieves inflammation and cools the skin.
Chemical Peel with Dermaplaning
Combining your chemical peel with dermaplaning can result in skin improvements you would never see with chemical peels alone. Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment that exfoliates the skin by removing dead and damaged skin cells. The treatment is also one of the best methods for removing tiny hairs from your skin that make your complexion look dull and rough.
A chemical peel uses a solution applied to the skin to remove layers of the skin and stimulate the production of new skin cells. It tightens the skin, reduces wrinkles and pigmentation (brown spots), helps control acne and leaves your complexion with a healthy glow. The depth of the peel recommended will depend on your skin type and desired result.
