Are you aware that chemical peel is not a new treatment at all? Even Egyptian Cleopatra used sour milk baths to improve her skin thousands of years ago!
Chemical peels are used to improve the quality of the skin by:
- Improving skin tone and texture by decreasing fine lines and wrinkles
- Evening out the complexion and colour of the skin (pigmentation)
- Improving acne-prone skin, and decreasing pore size
It can also minimize sensitivity, inflammation (rosacea), hydrate the skin, minimize pigmentation, kill acne bacteria, increase production of collagen in the dermis layer, etc
As you probably understood – there are many benefits of chemical peel. And there are different peels based on skin concerns, skin condition, and even skin Fitzpatrick.
How does it work?
Professional chemical peels are stronger and more adjusted to your needs than the ones you can buy on the open market.
For the best results, you should trust this procedure to a qualified professional. A chemical peel done by a professional is not just a peel – it is a controlled treatment with certified products. Peel is causing some damage to the epidermis (or even dermis) to achieve desired results. Not all peels are created equal and no one peel suits all. While acne patients will benefit from salicylic acid, glycolic acid will work on skin’s laxity, pigmentation can be treated with lactic or mandelic acids, and so on.
What chemical peels are used?
We use Alumier MD products and protocols.
Chemical peels are classified as superficial, medium, or deep, depending on the depth of penetration of the ingredients used. Superficial peels exfoliate to various levels of the epidermis. Medium-depth peels treat through the papillary dermis and deep peels to the mid-reticular dermis.
The strength of a chemical peel is determined by the type of ingredients used, their concentrations, and the pH of the formulation.
What is Alumier MD’s peel philosophy?
We offer a selection of superficial to medium depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. We believe in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results, and to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels.
Chemical peels are performed by a trained skin care professional in a clinical setting. So that they are delivered safely and effectively.
When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin. To be sure that the body doesn’t react to this deep exfoliation as it would to trauma. Excessive trauma can lead to pigment changes. That is why exfoliation must be introduced gradually giving the skin time to adjust.
Your skin care specialist will complete a thorough skin analysis and recommend an individualized treatment program to address your skin concerns. She will create a personalized program that combines professional treatments with home care products. Since they work synergistically to improve the health and beauty of the skin.
Pre-treatment products precondition the skin, accelerate results and minimize complications.
Post-treatment products minimize complications, soothe the skin and then maintain the results. Professional treatments enhance the results of your home care products.
Skin peel as a single treatment can give you radiance of the skin. But beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight and for more significant results ask your professional to advise you with a treatment plan suited for your goals.
