Medical Grade Chemical Peels in Rochester
One of the simplest ways to transform the appearance of your skin is with a series of medical-grade chemical peels.
A chemical peel is a skin-smoothing procedure using a exfoliating chemical to remove the top layer of the skin. There are three categories of chemical peels bases on how deeply the chemical permeates the skin. Each can help with a variety of skin conditions. The type and depth of chemical peel administered will depend on your skin type, concern, Fitzpatrick type, and skincare habits. Using recommended skincare products and a series of 3 or 4 every 3-4 weeks is recommended for optimal results.
A peel is designed to exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and clarity. They are an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, uneven skin pigmentation, and acne. This treatment can easily be coupled with dermaplaning.
CLEANSE, EXFOLIATE AND TONE minimizes excess oil and removes dead skin cells but improves peel absorption.
PREP the skin with Glycolic Acid and SPF protection.
AVOID facial scrubs, waxing, bleaching, microdermabrasion, laser hair removal and topical retinoids for at least 1 week before a chemical peel to prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and scarring.
AVOID the sun.
PROTECT AND HYDRATE Replenish the post-peel with moisture-rich broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF30+.
APPLY a protective ointment and/or ice packs to soothe the skin.
