Chemical Peel Facial at our Winter Park Salon
A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve your skin. Our skin care professional applies a chemical solution to the skin and then allows it to soak in. During the next few days, depending on how deep the solution penetrates the skin, dead skin cells will peel off.
During your appointment our skin care provider will analyze your skin needs. Depending on the condition of your skin provide you with the most suitable chemical peel.
Chemical Peel Therapy
This procedure destroys parts of the skin in a controlled way so that new skin can grow in its place. The chemicals used are called exfoliating or wounding agents.
There are 3 types of chemical peels. However, the types differ based on how deeply the chemical penetrates, as well as, what type of chemical solution is used. Acid concentration in the peeling agent may affect the depth of a peel. As well as the number of coats that are applied, and the amount of time allowed before the acid is neutralized.
Deeper peels result in more dramatic effects as well as higher risks, increased pain, and longer healing time.
3 Types of Chemical Peels
Penetrates the skin the least and can be used on all skin types. Superficial peels usually use liquid containing a mild (dilute) acid, also known as glycolic acid.
Penetrates the skin deeper than superficial peels and cause a second-degree burn of the skin. The main peeling agent used for medium peels is Trichloroacetic acid (TCA), though the peel may also be done in several steps using a different chemical solution followed by TCA.
Penetrates several layers of skin and cause a second-degree burn of the skin, and is used only on the face. We us a chemical called Phenol in deep peels. Darker skin types aren’t recommended for deep peels because they tend to bleach the skin (hypopigmentation). Even in lighter-skinned people, phenol peels as well as any type of deep resurfacing—may bleach the skin.
