Chemical Peel Treatments
A chemical peel is a fantastic option that is specifically formulated to rejuvenate aging skin and help prevent future damage. It helps to soften lines and wrinkles, evens out skin tone, and smooths away rough skin texture. This peel is a good place for most people to start but there are two options listed below.
Mandelic acid is an alphy hydroxy peel derived from bitter almonds. It is a peel that will not cause shedding and that is non-photosensitizing. It is safe to do year round, even in the summer. It rapidly exfoliates dead skin cells and surface debris from the skin. It has antimicrobial/antibacterial properties, making it an excellent choice for all types of acne, including cystic acne and is safe for all skin types. It also loosens blackheads for easy extraction, cleans and refines pores and refines the texture and tone of the skin.
The Glytone hand peel is for mild to moderate photo-aging of the hands. It reduces the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, small scars and coarse wrinkles on the hands. It gives an immediate skin brightening effect and improves skin texture and tone. The peel will promote collagen building and is a good treatment to do after an IPL hand treatment to help get rid of any lighter brown spots that did not get picked up by the IPL. It is best done in a series of 2 or 3.
Lira Chemical Peels
Lira Peels are some of the greenest peels on the market right now as green skincare is becoming more in demand. The Lira Peels combine exclusive plant derived stem cell technology, multiple age-defying peptide chains, minerals, potent antioxidants and colloidal gold and silver for their antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Lira treatments go from the mild, non shedding Vita Brite Refresher to the more dynamic Mineral TCA peel, allowing me to help you decide how much you want to peel or if you just want a light refreshing treatment to brighten your skin before a big event!
Lira peels are paraben and polyethylene-free. The Lira Peel system also gives me more peels to choose from for skin of color. Lira peels also use high quality botanical and marine derived ingredients.
In addition, Lira offers the Green Power treatment that can be used on its own or as an add on to some of the Lira Peels. The Green power peel contains an innovative exfoliant: Spongia Officinalis – a microscopic mechanical exfoliator derived from sea sponges that helps with pigmentation, acne and acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains plant stem cells and green tea extract.
PCA Chemical Peels
PCA Peels are peels that have formulas for every skin type and for multiple conditions. The peels offer true customization and each chemical peel is done differently for each patient. Suzy can control how much or how little you want to peel.
The PCA peels can treat hyperpigmentation, Melasma, wrinkles, acne, pseudofolliculits barbae, Rosacea and Keratosis Pilaris. There is also a body peel with a special pre-treatment activator to help make the peel more dynamic.
The PCA peels are self neutralizing and after the peels are absorbed, a custom serum blend will be applied on top, along with moisturizer and sunscreen.
