Fall is a great time to get a peel and remove the sun damage from a long summer! As we get older our dead skin cells don’t slough off as easily as they used to, which causes the skin to look dull. When a chemical peel gets rid of the dead skin cells, the living cells are triggered to multiply, and in turn increase collagen production. The exfoliation benefit of peels also allows for better product absorption.
We offer a few types of peels that are for different skin types and concerns:
· Lactic Acid – a milder peel that is good for all skin types. It will decrease hyperpigmentation and even skin tone and texture.
· Glycolic Acid – good for most skin types. It comes in 3 different strengths and works to diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
· Salicylic Acid – works well on blemished, thick or oily skin. This peel helps accelerate healing of acne, and helps lighten hyperpigmentation.
· Jessner’s Peel – has the most dramatic effect and is ideal for aging and sun-damaged skin. It exfoliates, smoothes skin, accelerates healing of acne, lightens hyperpigmentation, and dissolves access oil.
Our estheticians would be more than happy to consult you on which chemical peel would be best for you! It is always best to do the peels in a series, as well as make sure you have a skincare regimen in place for after the peel to keep the effects going.
