What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are used to gently exfoliate the skin using different acids of varying strengths. The exfoliation promotes fresh new skin cells, which soften the skin and minimize a wide range of skin concerns. Chemical peels are actually one of the oldest skincare treatments still in use today, and have been well loved by many people for decades due to their versatility in correcting skin flaws.

Vibrant Rejuvenation’s Nurse Practitioner offers medical-grade skincare with highly-effective peels. Once your Practitioner has familiarized herself with your skin, she will not only customize your peel, but will identify the facial and peel combination that will provide even more dramatic results. We at Vibrant Rejuvenation are also focused on your long-term skincare benefits so we will track your skin’s condition upon every visit and change your regimen if need be.

Conditions Treated With Chemical Peels

The following conditions respond well to chemical peels:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Rough skin texture

Salicylic Peel

Salicylic Acid is BHA derived from sweet birch, willow bark and wintergreen. It is widely used for oily skin, inflammations, irritations and acne. It has great antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. (Aspirin is derived from salicylates)

Glycolic Peel

Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane that is used in different percentages and pH factors to dissolve the desmosomes between cells to keep skin cells exfoliated. Due to its safety and painless, glycolic peel is one of the most popular type among cosmetologists and their clients. Molecules of acid are very small, so they quickly penetrates the outer layer.

This is a kind of easy peel, which influences only the top of epidermis. The mixture with glycolic acid helps to strengthen weak and damaged by age cells and rejuvenate them. This provides the long effect of reduced fine lines and wrinkles on face, neck and décolleté zones. Because of the unique structure of glycolic acid it can normalize the in-cells water balance. So, the problem of dry and exhausted skin will be solved.

This method is popular due to its painless. Influencing only the coronium layer, it doesn’t penetrate as deeply as medium peelings do. Therefore, clients don’t need any painkillers during the procedure and the rehabilitation period is minimalized too. After the visit skin won’t have redness and irritations for long. It is useful to add some natural herbs acid solutions, which can calm side effects of the main ingredient, for example, green tea extracts.

Lactic Peel

Lactic acid is an AHA acid derived from milk. Lactate is one of the less harmful acids for our face and body. This type of peeling suits people with sensitive skin. One of its benefits is an ability to reduce irritations and calm them. It won’t help with deep wrinkles, because of its tender effect and influence. Mixtures for peel contain different lactate levels, so the practitioner will define which one will be the most useful depending on the client’s desires and health state.

The main effects are:

  • calmed skin;
  • toned and bright color;
  • healthy looking for long;
  • reduced small mimic wrinkles at their beginning.

Jessner Solution

Jessner solution peel is one of the most popular types among Hollywood actresses and common Americans. It belongs to easy peels, so its depth isn’t too big to harm your derma and cause side effects. In a small amount of time skin gets toned and visibly clean. So, it is the best choice to get a magnificent look without aftermaths or long rehabilitation period in an hour. But not for so long as in the case with other peels, especially medium type.

The main ingredients for this “cocktail of youth and beauty” are mixed together three acids: salicylic, lactic and retinoic. They help soothe wide pores, tone skin and make it look prettier and younger. Jessner solution peel doesn’t remove scars are deep wrinkles, but it can reduce hyperpigmentation and freckles. It also waters and nourishes skin cells, helping to make the outer layer more elastic and soft. Furthermore this peeling solves problems of oily skin type, removing fat gloss.

TCA Peel

Trichloroacetic acid is the main ingredient for TCA peel. Mixtures for the procedure have different concentration of acid, so we can perform easy one, medium and deep. It is one of the best chemical peels for acne scars and deep wrinkles. 15% acid mixture helps to exfoliate cornified cells and influences only the outer layer of epidermis. It is allowed to get such treatment no more than two times per one season.

The TCA is more aggressive and effective then glycolic one, so it will be optimal to reduce visible signs of aging and skin changes. Trichloroacetic acid is also used to perform deep peelings. but only on the special body areas and in a point method. The procedure has some precautions, so consult with the practitioner first.

Who Can Get the Procedure?

Of course, deeper chemical peels have more precautions to use, because of their level of penetrating and aggressiveness. First of all, don’t attend the procedure if you are pregnant or during the lactation period. Your organism becomes more sensitive, especially to every influence from the outside. Also, the procedure isn’t allowed during the exacerbation of chronic diseases. You definitely shouldn’t get such treatment if you:

  • Previously had deep cleanse or mesotherapy (during the last month);
  • Sunbathed before or applied auto-tanning creams;
  • Have a tendency to the appearance of keloid scars;
  • Have any complicated skin diseases or bacterial illnesses;
  • Have eczema, allergic dermatitis, psoriasis in their bloom;
  • Have oncological illnesses or a tendency to bad wound healing.

Some kinds of peelings are appropriate for not bad stages of these problems. So, don’t give up and consult with the specialists first. They will try to choose and offer the best variants including the usage of calming and cooling remedies.

When to Visit Spa for a Peeling and What to Do After?

During the hot season our skin is more susceptible to ultraviolet rising, which causes sun damage to our face and body cover. So, for medium and deep peelings it will be more appropriate to choose less sunny and warm weather. We recommend to attend our Tampa beauty spa for this treatment from fall till early spring.

Also, don’t forget about chemical peel aftercare – it is very important to keep the result longer and prevent any undesirable side effects. After the visit you shouldn’t sunbathing or applying make-up. Peel client should also avoid additional exfoliation outside of recommended home-care program. Don’t forget to apply oily gels and creams and wash your face using thermal water. Peels do make the skin drier on the surface because the top layer is sloughed off, so keeping the skin hydrated is important.

It can take approximately six weeks to notice a difference in the skin, but sometimes improvements are visible after only one peel or one week of using the home-care products. Makeup and straight sun rises are harmful for your sensitive skin with the removed coronium layer. The daily skin care should be more tender and pleasant, so keep an eye on it and stay beautiful!
