It is a common misconception that the higher the peel percentage, the stronger the peel. We are all so different, strength in peels is relative to the skin I am touching. Someone with Rosacea may benefit just as well from a progressive peel as would someone with thick, sun damaged skin, a deep peel. I will assess your skin needs to provide the best treatment unique to you.
A chemical peel is a technique which involves the application of a variety of chemical solutions to remove the skin’s damaged outer layers. Fine lines, sun damage, acned areas flake and peel off in the next few days. New skin is smoother, more even and you feel fresh faced.
- Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
- Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
- Improve the appearance of mild scars
- Treat certain types of acne
- Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
- Improves the look and feel of skin
I use Rhonda Allison products. These skin peels feature only the the purest, highest grade ingredients for maximum results that are naturally scientific.
After a chemical peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to sun, so wear sunscreen everyday after.
Chemical Peel Strengths
Light – A progressive skin peel is the mildest course of treatment, removing only the outer layer of skin with no visible peeling. Repeated treatments on a regular schedule, every 2-4 weeks, will cause slight peeling with cumulative effects. This is best described as a mild, yet refining, peel.
Mid-Depth – A mid-depth skin peel targets the intra-epidermal layer and may be administered every four to six weeks as needed. Light flaking may occur, similar to a sunburn peel. Mid-depth peels offer excellent rejuvenating effects with minimal to no down time.
Deep – A deep skin peel reaches the deepest layers where skin peels in large segments. Skin becomes brown and crusted prior to considerable peeling, occurring three to four days after application. The typical recovery period lasts seven to ten days, with the treatment allowed up to twice per year. A deep peel restores and renews skin with the most dramatic results.
