A chemical peel is a technique which involves the application of a variety of chemical solutions to remove the damaged outer layers of dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. It is 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 notice marked improvements in the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, texture and tone of the skin, hydration, pore size, blemishes and oil production, and an overall healthier skin appearance.
The Different Types of Peels
All Rhonda Allison treatment procedures at the Well Spa 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 layers 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.
These peels affect the deepest intra-epidermal layers. The skin becomes brown and crusty, then undergoes considerable peeling, which occurs three to four days after application. The skin peels in large segments a opposed to flaking. The entire process takes about seven to ten days.
