Benefits of Chemical Peels
The skin is the largest organ in our body. It is made up of millions of cells that protect us from the environment and regulate our body temperature. Every day thousands of cells die, flake off and are replaced by new cells from beneath the skin. As we age, this process begins to slow down. Our skin may become dull. Dark blotches, fine lines and other signs of sun-damage and aging begin to appear.
Chemical Peels have been used for over 100 years to create an even and controlled shedding of damaged skin cells. Each year thousands of chemical peels are performed in the United States. A chemical peel uses a solution applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new skin cells. The chemical peels at Body Beautiful Day Spa in Phoenix | Scottsdale help tighten skin, reduce wrinkling and restore a more youthful appearance. Check out our Chemical Peel FAQs.
All peels give the best results when combined with an at home skin care regime and done in a series.
Body Beautiful Day Spa Chemical Peels
Basic Glycolic Peel
The Basic Glycolic Peel is designed to rapidly exfoliate, reduce fine lines, and clarify your complexion.
Lactic Exfoliating Peel
The Lactic Exfoliating Peel, used since the days of the ancient Egyptians, is excellent for dry, dehydrated, and aging skin types. It helps hydrate to the skin, fade age spots, and helps to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. The human body contains lactic acid in its cells which is why the Lactic Exfoliating Peel is safer that other chemical peels.
The Sensi Peel® is gentle solution of lactic acid and trichloroacetic acid formulated primarily for ethnic skin as well as all other sensitive skin types. It will effectively treat acne, pigment disorders, aging skin, smokers skin, and photo damaged skin. The Sensi Peel® produces little to no stinging sensation. After a Sensi Peel®, your skin looks smooth and silky.
Our signature Celebrity Peel begins with a cleansing followed by an Express Microdermabrasion, which drastically improves the effectiveness of your peel. Next your Aesthetician selects a personalized blend of lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid, and/ or salicylic acid peel for your particular skin type and issues for a star quality result!
The Jessner Peel is a blend of lactic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol. The Jessner Peel creates an effect of deep chemical peel but without irritating like a deep peel. It is found very useful to treat sun damages such as hyper-pigmentation and wrinkles. Moreover, the Jessner Peel works well for mild to severe acne. The skin becomes healthy and younger looking after a treatment with a Jessner Peel.
Enhanced Jessner Peel
The Enhanced Jessner Peel is an innovative and proven light to medium depth peel formula that effectively exfoliates with blends of citric and lactic acids. The Enhanced Jessner Peel help repair prior damage, reduce breakouts, control oil, soften lines, and provide a smoother skin texture.
The Acne Peel is used to minimize scars and, as the top layer of skin is removed during the acne peels, the underlying skin is allowed to regenerate.
The active chemical ingredient of a TCA peel is trichloroacetic acid, which is a stronger acetic acid. Unlike light alpha hydroxy acid peels, a TCA peel works more deeply and addresses skin flaws deeper than other lighter peels. When used alone, it is much preferred for olive or dark color skins.
The Ultra Peel will help treat smoker’s skin, pigment disorders, sun damaged skin and acne. The Ultra Peel is especially ideal for sensitive skin, as it produces only a mild tingling sensation, leaving you with softer, brighter skin.
The Vi Peel is a medical grade peel that contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types, for dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and little downtime. The Vi Peel will:
- Improve the tone, texture and clarity of your skin
- Reduce or eliminate age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation, including melasma
- Soften lines and wrinkles
- Clear acne skin conditions, reduce or eliminate acne scars
- Stimulate the production of collagen, for firmer, more youthful skin
The Vi Peel is designed to reverse both the signs of aging and sun damage, and is excellent for both adult and adolescent acne. Why wait weeks or months for results when you can enjoy beautiful, radiant skin in about a week from Body Beautiful Day Spa in Phoenix | Scottsdale?
Post Peel Care
Peel clients should always follow the Home Care Regimen provided by their licensed Asethetician. The following post-treatment tips are also recommended to maximize the benefits to your skin:
- Do not apply any medications following treatment not recommended by your technician, including AHA products.
- It is ideal to let the skin stabilize and rest overnight, but makeup can be applied following the treatment if absolutely necessary.
- Do no pick at or pull on any loosening or exfoliating skin. This could potentially cause hyperpigmentation.
- Do NOT go to a tanning booth for a least three weeks before or after a treatment.
- Discontinue the use of Retin-A®/Renova® or Differin® for seven days after treatment.
- Do not have electrolysis, collagen injections, facial waxing or use depilatories for approximately five days after the treatment.
- Do not schedule another treatment until your licensed Aesthetician advises you to do so.
For Two Days Following a Chemical Peel:
- Do not apply ice or water to the treated areas.
- Do not put the face directly into a hot shower spray. Do not use Jacuzzis, steam rooms or saunas.
- Do not go swimming or participate in activities that would cause excessive perspiration.
- Do not use Buff-Puff’s or other means of mechanical exfoliation.
- Do not direct a hair dryer onto the treated area.
- Stay cool! Getting heated internally can cause hyperpigmentation.
