Chemical Peels 

This week we are going to talk about Alumier Chemical Peels. The Alumier MD peels promote a smoother, more youthful skin tone with the removal of superficial damaged skin. Some questions you may have… What is a Chemical Peel? A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to skin to lower the pH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate collagen. What are the different types of chemical peels you offer? Chemical peels are classified as light (superficial), medium, or deep, depending on the depth of penetration of the ingredients used. Light peels exfoliate to various levels of the epidermis. Medium-depth peels treat through the papillary dermis and deep peels to the mid-reticular dermis. Deeper peels require more downtime and increase the chance of side effects. We offer light to medium depth peels as they are known for their excellent results and safety. How many times should I get this treatment done? 4 – 6 sessions are recommended to provide progressive and gradual results and to avoid side effects and downtime that could happen with deeper peels. How can chemical peels benefit the skin? Peel treatments improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even out skin tone, improve acne-prone skin and reduce pore size appearance. On what areas of the body are chemical peels used? Chemical peels can be used on body areas such as the face, neck, back and shoulders. This treatment can also be combined with Micro-Dermabrasion for optimum results.
