Chemical Peels

As we age, the accumulated effects of sun exposure, environmental pollutants, acne, and scarring can damage our skin and cause us to look older than we are. Such skin damage can be treated with a chemical peel, a non-invasive procedure designed to promote cell growth and produce smoother, clearer skin.

Chemical peels use a controlled chemical reaction which removes the outer layers of skin. Chemical peels can smooth the surface of your skin, improve skin tone and color, diminish wrinkles and shrink pore size. Chemical peels can be performed on the face, neck, and chest.

Light Peels

Light or "lunch hour" peels are the mildest type of chemical peels. Radiance Medspa offers glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acid peels. These peels remove the outer layers of the skin and can smooth out fine wrinkles and/or remove rough, dry skin. These peels may also be used to improve the texture of sun-damaged skin, balance out skin pigmentation, or diminish some types of acne scars. These peels are often used in a series of three (3) in order to achieve the desired results.

Light peels are often relatively fast and simple. The treatment usually takes about 20 to 30 minutes. The Aesthetician will begin by thoroughly cleansing the area to be treated followed by the application of the peel solution, wait up to 15 minutes, and then remove it. After the procedure, no ointments or salves will be necessary to cover the treated area.

Radiance Medspa offers the following light peels:

  • Skin Ceuticals GL
  • Skin Ceuticals SM
  • Micropeel
  • Micropeel Plus

Medium Peels

These peels are generally used to treat skin with moderate sun damage, surface wrinkles, and/or uneven tone or pigment abnormalities. Full-face peels take less than one (1) hour. The Aesthetician or Nurse will begin by thoroughly cleansing the area to be treated followed by the application of the peel solution, wait up to 15 minutes, and then remove it. During the application of the peel, you may feel a warm or burning sensation. Sometimes two or more medium peel treatments, at intervals of one to two months, are necessary to achieve the desired results.

  • Skin Medica Vitalize Peel

Phenol acid is the strongest chemical peel solution, and it is used for the deepest possible chemical peel. Phenol peels are used to treat skin with coarse wrinkles and blotchiness. They may also be effectively used to treat patients with pre-cancerous growths.

 

Phenol peels should be used with caution because they can cause permanent lightening of the skin. For this reason, Phenol peels are not recommended for most patients with very dark skin tones.
