Medical Grade Peel
Benefits of Medical Grade Peels
Medical grade peels are a great alternative to laser facials, and are a quick way to remove dead skin cells, fine lines, small scars, freckles, dark spots and/or skin imperfections caused by aging, hormones and the sun. A medical peel treatment will generally target your face, neck and chest areas, and can be performed safely by one of our professionally qualified medical estheticians. Medical peels are very effective in renewing the skin’s texture, because medical peels take off unwanted dead skin cells, and force the rejuvenation of new skin, giving you the appearance of tighter, brighter skin.
Medical peels can:
- Make your skin softer and smoother
- Treat acne and breakouts
- Reduce the number of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve sun damage and even out your skin tone
- Reduce the visibility of superficial scars.
After one of our professional practitioners evaluate your skin, we will discuss the best medical peel choice for your skin type. After treatment, you can expect your skin to look fresh, smooth, and younger.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED TO SHOW IMPROVEMENT?
A SINGLE MEDICAL PEEL WILL ACHIEVE SIGNIFICANT REPAIR AND ADD A HEALTHY GLOW TO THE SKIN. SOME CONDITIONS LIKE ACNE SCARS, ENLARGED PORES AND HYPERPIGMENTATION MIGHT REQUIRE SEVERAL TREATMENTS. THE VI PEEL PROVIDES A RESTORATIVE AND PAINLESS REPAIR FOR MATURE DAMAGED SKIN AND A PREVENTATIVE ANTI-AGEING TREATMENT FOR YOUNG SKIN.
HOW DOES A CHEMICAL PEEL WORK?
Chemical peels are usually classified as light, medium and deep. The type of peel used depends on the condition of the skin and the desired result. Overall, a chemical solution is placed over the facial skin and left to gently remove the outer layers of skin. Once the treatment is done, the solution is washed off the face, and a neutralizer is spread on the skin to soothe it. After that, the treatment is complete.
It is common for chemical peels to be combined with other skin resurfacing procedures, such as microdermabrasion, light therapies and laser resurfacing, to maximize the rejuvenating effects. They are also an ideal complement to the selection of at-home skin care products available at Weston HCG Center.
HOW MUCH WILL I PEEL?
The amount you will peel will depend on your skins condition and which strength of Peel is used. Each individual will respond differently and you may have only light, fluffy flaking or medium to heavier peeling. Peeling usually begins on day three and can continue until day five to seven. If you have been using products such as Retin A or have sensitive skin, you may experience heavier peeling.
