Chemical Exfoliation Treatment – Peel

Chemical Exfoliation Treatment – Peel

Chemical Exfoliation Treatments are a quick, easy way to beautiful, healthy skin.  While skin treatments like the HydraFacial and Microdermabrasion exfoliate the dead layer of skin by manual methods, there are many topical products that will also exfoliate the dead layer. By customizing ingredients such as enzymes and chemicals, you can get a great exfoliating treatment while also addressing other issues, such as hyperpigmentation, melasma, aging, acne, rosacea, and many others.  Each custom exfoliation is created for each individual person based on their needs at the time of treatment to provide a unique skin treatment.

Benefits of a Chemical Exfoliation

Before any treatment, your skin and medical history will be evaluated, however, for the most part, all skin types can benefit from a Chemical Exfoliation Treatment.  A Chemical Exfoliation can:

  • Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimize acne scarring
  • Lighten hyperpigmentation and melasma
  • Revitalize dull or dehydrated skin
  • Clear up blackheads and milia
  • Clear up oily and/or acnaeic skin

How to Prepare – During the week prior:

  • Do not tan or use a self-tanner
  • Do not use aggressive scrubs or masks
  • Do not get Botox or Injectable Fillers
  • Discontinue prescription strength Retin A

Why I Like Chemical Exfoliations (Peels)

These are my favorite, go to treatment.  I always say they give you the most bang for your buck.  They are quick, inexpensive and address a multitude of conditions.  I’m loving my Korean peels even more as there is no stinging and no downtime – just great results.

What to Expect During a Chemical Exfoliation

A Chemical Exfoliation takes 15-30 minutes

  • Step 1 – Cleansing and Degrease the skin
  • Step 2 – Appropriate peel is applied to entire face with cotton
  • Step 3 – After 1-10 minutes, peel is removed
  • Step 4 – Optional add-on
  • Step 5 – Protection – The appropriate serums, lotions and sunscreen are applied.

What Happens After a Treatment

Your skin will feel smooth, healthy and very hydrated. You can be slightly red to pink for two hours, but makeup can be applied immediately. Over the next week you can have some slight flaking that can be addressed with extra moisturizer.  Peels out of my Korean skin care line create no flaking and no downtime.  They are great on their own and amazing when combined with other treatments.

How Often Should you Receive a Chemical Exfoliation

Every four to six weeks for optimum skin care.  Many people alternate these with other treatments such as a HydraFacial or Fire & Ice.
