Chemical peels are non-invasive treatments that are designed to rejuvenate and restore your skin. The solution used will eventually cause the old skin to peel off, revealing younger-looking skin beneath. Here at The Aesthetic Clinique, we offer a few different types of chemical peels. Visit us in Santa Rosa Beach to speak with our professionals, who can determine which peel will be best for your needs. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels contain acid as the active ingredient, such as lactic acid or salicylic acid, or a combination of a few different types of acids. Peels range from mild to deep, and the type of peel you need is based on your skin. Mild peels can be administered somewhat frequently, but deep peels should only be done once. Regular chemical peels can help control melasma, which is why it is a mainstay therapy at The Aesthetic Clinique.
This peel from SkinMedica® is categorized as a mild peel. The purpose of this peel is to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, as well as addressing any mild blemishes such as hyperpigmentation. There is a small amount of downtime associated with this peel. Most patients will see results after the first peel, but optimal results can be achieved after three to six peels. You can receive repeat treatments every three to four weeks, and this peel can be used on all skin types.
Another peel from SkinMedica®, the Rejuvenize Peel® is for more moderate facial blemishes. Because the acid solution is stronger, a little more downtime is required for this peel. Multiple peels (up to six) will show the best results. Chemical exfoliation is a great way to address brown and red spots as well as wrinkles and scars. It is important to wear sunscreen after your treatment to protect your sensitive skin from damage.
This peel is another mild peel from SkinMedica®, which is great for anyone looking to brighten up their skin. The Illuminize Peel® can give you a more radiant complexion after just one treatment as it fades sun spots and hyperpigmentation. This peel is effective for all skin types. Unlike the other peels we offer, the Illuminize Peel® does not result in visible peeling on the skin. That means you can immediately leave our office and get back to your daily activities, apply makeup, etc.
