Chemical Peels are one of the best anti-aging treatments
Posted on February 19, 2016 by Dr. Blume in Blog
Some of the key benefits of doing a chemical peel are:
• Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
• Improvement in acne and acne scaring.
• Fades brown spots and uneven skin tone from sun damage including melasma.
• Improves the overall tone and texture of your skin.
A chemical peel is a skincare treatment that improves the appearance of the skin on the face,neck,decollete and hands. There are many different types of solutions that the Licensed Aesthetician can use to treat different conditions of the skin depending on the client’s needs. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and peel off leaving you with radiant skin. Having peels done on a regular basis (say, every 6-8 weeks) will lead to collagen stimulation that improves the appearance of wrinkles.
The Blume Skin Centre offers many different peels to complement each skin type and condition.
“Lunchtime Peels” are very popular for people that want a brighter complexion without any downtime. We offer a Red Carpet Facial that includes steam, extractions and a mask with the addition of a Epionce Refresh peel. This peel includes a gentle combination of acids that improves the appearance of texture, acne, and relieves skin congestion and dullness with no downtime.
Medium depth peels are perfect for the client that wants to see some improvement in one peel and skin correction in a series of treatments. The latest technology in peels that The Blume Skin Centre offers is MDResurfacing by MDRejuvena. With these peels we can gradually increase the strength with each peel leaving you with only 2-3 days of a light flake. These peels are done in a series of 3 treatments specializing in aged skin or sun damaged skin. They have the strength and precision of a medical grade resurfacing procedure with the comfort and elegance of a European treatment. With the addition of a take home skincare regimen included into the series of peels you will be better prepared and on your way to more youthful looking skin.
We offer two medium to deep peels at The Blume Skin Centre. The VI Peel and The Perfect Peel can make a difference in your skin in as little as one week. This quick pain-free procedure is specifically formulated to rejuvenate aging skin and help prevent future damage. You will experience about 3-5 days of peeling. We also have the option to add “boosters” to the peel to enhance the efficacy of more severe sun damaged skin or acne scaring.
Chemical Peels may sound scary but they are the fastest way to reverse skin damage and aging. It is important to have a consultation with your skincare professional to go over a thorough skin analysis and skincare history. There are certain factors your Aesthetician will need to know before doing the procedure (most importantly to discontinue any use of Retin A or Retinol 3-5 days before having a peel). We are here to help you achieve your skin goals and to determine what treatments will be both safe and most effective to your needs.
