There is a great demand to find the next best thing to help our skin look and feel amazing. Clients typically want to improve the overall appearance of their skin whether it is to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, or just simply correct the skin to a smoother more polished texture. One key nonabrasive treatment we have at Amerejuve is our skinmedica chemical peels. Our chemical peels are designed to literally peel away the top layer of the epidermis by dissolving the bonds that hold our cells together, thus further expediting the exfoliation process. Post-summer peels are an excellent way to maintain the quality of your skin, as they exfoliate skin impurities, reduce unwanted pigmentation from sun damage, clean out clogged pores, and strip the skin of excess oil production.
As always before getting any type of skin procedure done, its best to have a consult with the spas skin care professional so that they can assess the skin to see what would fit best for the skin or to see if you are a right candidate for the procedure. Two of our most used skinmedica peels that we have to offer is the vitalize and rejuvenize peels. Though they are both from the same brand each chemical peel works in different ways for the skin and here is how.
Vitalize peel is usually the peel we start our beginners or our clients that have somewhat sensitive skin, it has a mixture of Lactic and Salicylic Acid and then it is layered under a Retinol complex which is more tolerable to beginners or sensitive skin. The vitalize peel is one of the best peels to use if you don’t want to peel. Just because it’s called a chemical peel doesn’t necessarily mean your skin will. Most clients don’t want to peel due to work or other obligations they have. Every client skin is different and some will peel and some won’t, but don’t get discourage because instead of peeling the peel will work internally inside the dermis. This will help bring the impurities up to the epidermis to dry and smooth out the texture of our clients skin, as well as help sun damage skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. If you want little down time but get great results, the Vitalize peel is your answer!
Our second peel we have to offer is the Rejuvenize chemical peel. This peel is usually used on our skin care veterans who have been getting facials for a while or those who have tougher skin. The Rejuvenize peel has a mixture of a higher percentage of Lactic and Salicylic Acid and is also layered under a retinol complex, so it is a little stronger which means you can experience little to more excessive peeling on the skin. Just like the Vitalize peel it doesn’t guarantee you will always peel, every client’s skin is different but it doesn’t mean it isn’t working for your skin. Like the Vitalize the Rejuvenize works internally to the dermis but gives you a stronger impact which in turn will help bring out impurities up to the epidermis as well as help sun damage skin, fine lines and wrinkles and give your skin an overall polished complexion. If you want more of a deep penetrating peel with some possible down time, the Rejuvenize peel is your answer!
After receiving our peels you should wait at least two to three hours before washing your face, these particular peels are self-neutralizing which means the peel will continue working through the dermis even after your face is washed completely. With any sort of facial treatments there is always dos and don’ts when getting a procedure done. When getting a Skinmedica peel you want to be sure to avoid using any Retin-a, Revona, Differin or any Alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) products for at least a week before getting a chemical peel. Clients who have had any medical, cosmetic facial treatments such as (Laser hair removal, surgical procedures, cosmetic filler, microdermabrasion, waxing, depilatory creams, electrolysis, etc.) should wait until skin sensitivity completely resolves or at least two weeks before receiving any of our chemical peels. Once the two week mark is up from your chemical peel you can resume the regular use of Retin-A, Retinol, Alpha-hydroxyl acids (AHA) products as well as getting any other cosmetic procedures done such as Microderms, Laser hair removal etc. Extra precautions should be taken to avoid sun exposure following before and after the chemical peel. It is recommended that clients use a medical grade SPF and limiting sun exposure for at least two weeks after the peel is performed. Not complying with these important steps can easily harm your skin or do a reverse effect when it comes to achieving your skin goals.
We here at Amerejuve aim to please our clients and give them the number one best facial that fist their skin perfectly. Never hesitate to ask one of our highly trained professionals any questions you may have about which peel best suites you or about any other service we have to offer.
