We also do chemical peels such as Glycolic Acid Peels and Jessner’s Peel in conjunction with Microdermabrasion. A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation.
Chemical peels may be used to treat damage caused by exposure to the sun, to remove pigmentation such as freckles and melasma and fine lines and wrinkles.
A peel removes several layers of sun damaged skin cells, leaving fresh skin which has a more even surface and color. It may stimulate new collagen to be formed improving skin texture.
A nurse or aesthetician may perform superficial peels. Peels can be repeated as necessary; some people have superficial peels every few weeks.
Glycolic acid, salicylic acid and Jessner peels result in superficial skin injury and are well tolerated - the 'lunchtime' peel. They remove thin lesions on the skin surface, reducing pigment and surface dryness.
