CHEMICAL PEELS

SKIN 101 Chemical Peel

LOOK HEALTHY & RADIANT

No matter what age, everyone can benefit from a great skin care regimen. To keep your skin looking healthy and radiant and to slow down visible signs of aging, taking good care of your skin is the first step.

Chemical peels can be a leading component in great skin care. Chemical peels are effective in exfoliating the surface of the skin and encouraging fresh, new cells to develop. Less aggressive than laser resurfacing and laser skin tightening, chemical peels are a great supplemental treatment with little downtime.

SKIN 101 offers a wide range of chemical peels that can eliminate dead skin cells, open clogged pores, reduce wrinkles, eradicate razor bumps, repair sun damaged skin, and reduce fine lines, to name a few.

A chemical peel is an application of cosmetic acids directly onto the skin. These acids are specifically formulated to kill bacteria and dissolve dead skin cells. These acids are strong enough to produce the desired result, but gentle enough to be safe and comfortable on the skin. Chemical peels generally result in mild to moderate peeling for about 1-5 days post application.

 

LIGHT PEELS

SALICYLIC PEEL

Salicylic acid is a gentle BHA (Butylated Hydroxyanisole) derived from willow bark. It’s long been used to treat skin conditions like acne. As a skin peel, salicylic acid can reverse the effects of aging, wiping away fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes. Salicylic acid clears pores to treat acne and reduces oil production to stop acne from recurring. The Salicylic Peel is great for those seeking to rid themselves of chronic or recurrent acne, and enjoy clear, firm, brilliantly youthful skin.

GLYCOLIC PEEL 

Glycolic acid is a gentle alpha hydroxy acid that works by dissolving the bonds between skin cells. Because it works differently from other chemical peeling agents, it has almost no side effects and requires very little downtime. It’s one of the mildest skin peels available. Glycolic acid is great for all skin types, whether young, mature, dry, or sensitive. Glycolic acid provides a gentle exfoliation that fades fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, sun damage and acne scars from all faces. It’s the perfect choice for those who want a skin peel with little to no discomfort, side effects or downtime.

MODIFIED JESSNER

Modified Jessner is a combination of salicylic acid, lactic acid, and citric acid. The synergistic effects of these acids create great antioxidant benefits, reversing the effects of aging and improving skin luminosity and texture. This is a superficial depth peel that effectively softens wrinkles, controls oil secretions and refines skin complexion.

 

ADVANCED PEELS

VI PEEL

The VI Peel is a medium depth peel consisting of a blend of five different acids that safely removes the very outer layers of your skin, revealing a fresher, brighter complexion.  This increased cellular turnover helps to reduce fine lines, melasma, acne, acne scarring, and age spots and helps stimulate collagen production for firmer, tighter skin.  The VI Peel is applied in office in as little as 30 minutes, and then patients are sent home with detailed aftercare to obtain the maximum benefits from this gentle but powerful peel, which is safe for all skin types.

THE PERFECT DERMA

The Perfect Derma™ Peel is a medium-depth chemical peel that can be performed as a standalone treatment or in addition to another cosmetic procedure. This medical-grade peel is considered safe for all skin types and can provide beautiful results for patients of all ethnicities.

 

The Perfect Derma Peel is composed of four different acids—TCA, retinoic, salicylic, and kojic—and also contains vitamin C and glutathione, an antioxidant that provides a healthy skin glow. We recommend this advanced peel treatment to patients wanting to improve the tone and texture of their skin for a brighter, smoother complexion.

 

It’s virtually painless and requires no pre-peel skin preparation! Also, clients can enjoy very little downtime after this treatment.

Ranked as one of the Top 3 New Anti Aging Products by ABC News, The Perfect Derma™ Peel debuts a new era in skin health. It’s the only medical-grade chemical peel that features Glutathione. Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant with powerful skin lightening and anti-aging benefits, which “lightens and brightens the skin, slows down the aging process, and helps prevent wrinkles”, according to Beverly Hills, CA, maker Bella Medical Products.
