Chemical peels can dramatically transform your skin’s health and appearance.
A chemical peel involves applying a chemical solution to the face or body to remove superficial surface layers of skin. Chemical peels can transform your skin and provide you with younger, healthier looking skin in just a matter of days. This non-invasive treatment can be done in office and typically involves 2-7 days of visible peeling post procedure.
Superficial peels offer can give the skin a nice glow but results are very temporary. Medium to deep peels, however, use stronger more potent ingredients but provide a more lasting result and can improve a spectrum of skin issues including: sun spots, age spots, melasma, enlarged pores, acne, and acne scars.
A chemical peel can also make the skin appear dramatically more youthful, especially if done in a series of 2-4 treatments using proper home care product in between peels.
Chemical peels are designed to help improve various problematic skin conditions. Some high quality peels can help erase fine lines and wrinkles, reduce enlarged pores and help build collagen and elastin, which in turn will tighten and firm the skin. In addition, chemical peels may reduce or eliminate hyper pigmentation and melasma. They also help improve the appearance of acne scars.
There are many chemical peel treatments on the market today, which can make it difficult when it comes to deciding which brand to use and which ones have safe and effective ingredients. The combination and quality of ingredients are very important to maximize the results of a chemical peel. One leading chemical peel that offers a safe, virtually painless peel experience and high-quality, effective ingredients is The Perfect Peel by Bella Medical Products, which contains glutathione as one of its main active ingredients. Glutathione is an anti-oxidant that helps increase cellular turnover to diminish stubborn acne scars.
The Perfect Peel is one of the most popular chemical peels available and has earned doctor recognition world wide. The formula combines Glutathione, Kojic Acid, TCA, Retinoic Acid, Phenol, Salicylic Acid, and Vitamin C. On their own, these ingredients are very potent, but the combination produces synergistic and amazing results. The anti-oxidant Glutathione neutralizes the harmful effects of free radicals for healthier skin. Kojic Acid is a powerful lightening agent proven to increase collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin that is brighter and tighter. TCA, Phenol and Retinoic Acid reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems, while Salicylic Acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation.
The Perfect Peel requires no preconditioning of the skin prior to treatment. However, sun exposure should be limited during the peel process, and a high quality SPF must be used daily. This is a standard requirement for all chemical peels. It is very important to read all precautions and follow all directions closely prior to treatment.
Application of The Perfect Peel only takes a few minutes. The patient may feel a slight stinging or tingling sensation that will subside within seconds. Numbing takes place once the first pass is applied. If desired, a fan may be used during the application process for the comfort of the patient. Immediately after the peel has been applied the skin will either appear pink or red, like a sunburn, or darker in some cases.
Peeling typically begins after 2-3 days. At The Hormone Zone, we offer moisturizers that will help reduce the visibility of peeling by hydrating the skin. The peeling is mainly a sloughing of thin sheets of dead skin cells. By day six or seven the peeling process is normally complete and the results are often dramatic. The exfoliation process will reveal a fresh, new complexion.
Results last as long as the skin is maintained with proper skin care products and maintenance peels. It is generally recommended to do two to four treatments per year to maintain your results.
