Chemical peels promote a healthy, youthful glow and are recommended to improve the appearance of deep wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes, uneven pigmentation, roughness, large pores, sun damage, rosacea, and overall skin condition. A series of four to six treatments is typically recommended to bring about the most dramatic results. Downtime associated with chemical peel treatments varies, but there can be about four to seven days of sloughing and peeling. After evaluating your skin and learning about your goals, your esthetician will discuss what to expect from proposed peels so you decide on the option that matches your needs and lifestyle.
Glycolic-Lactic Acid Peel (Light-Grade)
This light-grade peel uses a glycolic-lactic acid serum to exfoliate dull superficial skin, dead skin cells, and pore-clogging debris to reveal clearer, softer, more radiant skin. While the glycolic acid penetrates the skin deeply to dissolve sebum and dead skin cells, the lactic acid component provides gentle brightening and exfoliation properties to refresh the skin’s surface. Typically, we recommend a minimum of six sessions to achieve the most impressive results. Glycolic-lactic acid peels can be performed one to two weeks apart. This is a “lunchtime” peel that has no downtime.
Salicylic-Mandelic Acid Peel (Light-Grade)
This light-grade peel treatment minimizes the appearance of surface lines, smooths out skin texture, aids in clearing acne, and helps fade hyperpigmentation. Using the most appropriate strength of salicylic-mandelic acid serum, dead cells are removed from the surface without irritating the skin. A minimum of six sessions are recommended for optimal results. Salicylic-mandelic acid peels can be done one to two weeks apart. This peel has no downtime.
