The Anatomy Of A Peel

Posted on February 3, 2018 at 1:25 PM

 

"Chemical peels are used to help improve the over all texture and appearance of the skin, as well as treating specific skin conditions. The most common skin conditions that are treated with peels are acne, hyperpigmentation, and aging skin. The most important two factors to consider when doing a chemical peel is the depth of penetration and the acids that are being introduced to the peel.

 

Superficial peels are typically done to achieve a micro-exfoliation that will help the skin look smoother and more even in skin color. A superficial peel is ideal for all skin types, it is also ideal for a person who is doing a peel for the first time.

 

Medium peels are a bit more invasive and with medium depth peels you will obtain a peeling effect that may last for up to 7-8 days. These peels are done as a more aggressive anti-aging treatment or for specific skin conditions.

 

Deep peels are invasive treatments that have a downtime of 1-2 days and a peeling of 8-10 days. These peels are typically done under medical supervision. These peels are typically done ONLY on Fitzpatrick I-II skin types. Darker skin types may have adverse effects, such as post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

 

Chemical peels use single acids and combination acids to help improve and nourish the skin. Just as important as the depth of the peel, so is the type of acid that is being used. Acids can be in pure form , but have different concentrations and may also be combined. The most popular acids that are being used by aestheticians are Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid, Lactic Acid, and Salicylic Acid. These single acid peels help with different skin types, and are great peels that will help prep the skin for a more invasive peel. Combination acid peels are done for very specific skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, acne, and dehydration. They are also great to treat body conditions such as stretch marks and cellulite.

 

When used properly chemical peels can rejuvenate and improve client/patients skin problems. Chemical peels are awesome and we love them, especially Mandelic Acid peels (which you already know how much we love!), Glycolic, and also our combination acid peels like the Bio-C peel that has Lactobionic Acid, Mandelic Acid, and Glycolic Acid.
