WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?
A chemical peel, is a science-based treatment that, when properly administered, offers one of the most powerful, non-surgical skin improvements available. It involves the application of highly specialized acid and enzyme solutions to remove damaged layers of cells from the skin’s outer surface – revealing more glowing, youthful skin. These treatments are extremely beneficial for many skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, rosacea, acne, sun damage, and photo aging. By removing the build-up of dead skin cells and stimulating the regenerative process, you will experience noticeable improvements in the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, texture and tone, hydration, reduced pore size, clearing of blemishes, more balanced oil production and an overall healthier skin appearance. Your skin professional will help you to determine the best approach for your skins needs.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PEELS?
All Rhonda Allison treatment procedures are considered superficial; they do not penetrate beyond the epidermis or papillary dermis. They are not to be confused with medical or physician-strength peels that affect the reticular dermis.
This refers to a treatment that does not usually cause immediate exfoliation and only removes the outer layer of skin or the stratum corneum. As treatments are repeated, the skin will experience a mild sloughing.
These peels affect the intra-epidermal layer, and exfoliation occurs within two to three days after application. The skin goes through very little down time. Peeling consists of light flaking similar to a sunburn peel.
Your skin therapist will discuss goals and customize a peel to your specific needs and concerns.
WHAT TYPE OF HOME CARE SHOULD I USE AFTER MY CHEMICAL PEEL?
There are specific instructions to be followed after your skin peel – this is as important as the peel itself. Post care will include cleanser, epidermal growth factor (cell renewal and wound repair), calming and soothing topicals to reduce itching and inflammation (depending on depth of peel), and always sunscreen!
When the skin peel is completed and your professional has determined the skin is healed, daily skin care is essential! The most important part of a home care routine is a cleanser and a sunblock. Next in importance is a supportive cell rejuvenator. These are the basics. Additional specialty products, such as antioxidants, eye serums, nighttime moisturizers, AHAs, ascorbic acid, retinol, enzymes, masks, and topical correctives may be added to enhance and maintain results. Proper home care is essential to maintain the beautiful results of your skin peel.
