Chemical peels have been a popular cosmetic treatment for decades, and for good reason. These professional treatments can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and pigmentation issues, leaving the skin looking brighter, smoother, and more youthful.
However, chemical peels are not just for treating specific skin concerns. They also play an important role in maintaining your skin’s overall health and beauty.
Types of Professional Chemical Peels
Chemical peels come in different strengths and formulations, and the type of peel that is best for you will depend on your skin type and concerns. The three main types of professional chemical peels we use at Academic Alliance in Dermatology include:
Are you ready to unveil a more youthful, radiant version of yourself? Look no further than the Vitalize Peel from SkinMedica. This professional-grade chemical peel can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking smoother and more youthful. But that’s not all – the Vitalize Peel is also an excellent option for those looking to address uneven pigmentation, sun damage, and melasma.
This peel uses a combination of medical peeling agents, including salicylic acid, resorcinol, lactic acid, and retinol, to rejuvenate and refresh your skin. And the best part? You may start seeing results after just one treatment, but a series of peels is recommended for optimal results.
Unlock your skin’s true potential with a Rejuvenize Peel. This professional-grade chemical peel is not just a quick fix for fine lines and wrinkles; it’s also a powerful weapon against acne and acne scarring, pigmentation irregularities, and sun damage.
Imagine a treatment that addresses multiple skin concerns and delivers visible results after just one session. But the real magic happens when you commit to a series of treatments (three to six peels) – that’s when you’ll see a transformation like never before.
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels are one of the most sought-after medical-grade chemical peels on the market. TCA peels come in varying concentrations, so your provider can customize your treatment to suit your unique needs. The higher the concentration, the more intense the peel will be.
With a TCA peel, you can say goodbye to acne scars, precancerous growths, wrinkles, blemishes and photoaging. The medium depth of a TCA peel means it penetrates the top layer of the skin as well as a small amount of the layer underneath. This results in a powerful yet effective treatment that can leave your skin looking smoother, brighter and more youthful.
However, it’s important to note that stronger peels have a higher risk of side effects, so choosing a TCA peel that is appropriate for your skin type and concerns is crucial. Our licensed professionals will work with you to determine the best peel for your aesthetic needs.
Benefits of Professional Chemical Peels
Chemical peels work by exfoliating the top layer of skin, unclogging pores, and stimulating the growth of new skin cells. All of this leads to a range of benefits, including:
Improving the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but they can also be caused by sun damage and other environmental factors. A chemical peel can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by exfoliating the top layer of skin and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
Acne is a common skin concern affecting people of all ages. It is caused by a combination of factors, including excess oil production, clogged pores, and bacteria. A chemical peel can be an effective treatment for acne by exfoliating the skin and unclogging pores, which can help reduce acne and prevent future breakouts.
Improving Pigmentation Issues
Improving pigmentation issues, such as hyperpigmentation, age spots, and uneven skin tone, is another popular reason for undergoing a chemical peel. A variety of factors, including sun damage, hormonal changes, and certain medications, can cause pigmentation issues. A chemical peel can help reduce the appearance of pigmentation issues by exfoliating the top layer of skin and stimulating the growth of new skin cells.
