Advanced Skin + Body Aesthetics offers chemical peels performed by our esthetician. Chemical peeling is a procedure that aims to accelerate skin exfoliation by the use of chemical substances resulting in renewed, healthier looking skin and more uniform complexion. They can address the visible skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture. Peels also address skin tone unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or pigmentary changes.
We offer two chemical peels by SkinMedica®
Helps provide vibrant, radiant looking skin with minimal downtime. Appropriate for mild skin imperfections
Smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. See noticeable improvement after just one peel and compelling results after three to six peels. Appropriate for moderate to severe skin imperfections.
A chemical peel can leave a yellowish tinge on the skin which is expected to last no longer than 2-3 hours. Mild to moderate redness is expected after any type of chemical peel procedure. The extent of redness varies from patient to patient. The face may appear redder than usual for some time after the treatment and completely resolves after the peeling is complete. Since the new skin is more susceptible to sunburn, extra precautions should be taken to limit sun exposure for at least one week after the peel. It is imperative to use a broad spectrum sunscreen product with an SPF of 30 or higher. Treatments can be repeated every 3-4 weeks.
SkinMedica® peels should not be administered to pregnant or lactating women.
Before & After Results
Frequently Asked Questions
Would I need to stop any of my other treatments, routines, or products?
Yes, at least a week prior you peel you will need to avoid doing any electrolysis, waxing, depilatory creams, laser hair removal, shaving, exfoliating products, and stop any products that may be dry or irritating, including products that contain salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy acids, vitamin c, hydroquinone, retinoids, and some prescription medications.
What could I expect after my treatment?
After your peel, the skin may look and feel like a mild windburn for a few days. After 48 hours a slight flaking/peeling may occur for 3 to 5 days. You may use a mild moisturizer at this point, we recommend twice a day but can be applied more frequently for hydration and to decrease the appearance of flaking. Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat. No tanning beds for 2 weeks after your peel.
