One of the most effective means of revealing your natural radiance is a chemical face peel. It might sound a little scary, but the procedure is well-researched and can be customized to your specific skin concerns.  Allow the experts at Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Institute to ease your mind and help you find the formulation that’s right for your skin.

How Does a Chemical Face Peel Work?

Chemical peels are used to “rejuvenate” the skin and stimulate new growth.  Everyone can benefit from chemical peels from teenagers with acne, to baby boomers with wrinkles.  Chemical peels are effective for many skin conditions including acne, rosacea, dry bumpy skin, age spots, melasma, wrinkles, scarring and overall giving the skin a healthy glow.

Superficial chemical peels are “nutritive” peels to stimulate new skin growth without the down time.  They can exfoliate the skin, leaving it smooth and fresh appearing. Chemical peels help your skin exfoliate thickened, dead layers of skin and sun damage, revealing soft, baby smooth skin underneath.   This procedure literally peels away layers of imperfections and blemishes. You’ll find a more even skin tone and texture, as well as diminished spots and discoloration.  Chemical peels also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve overall skin radiance.

Prosystem Rejuvenating Peels

Those looking for mild-moderate results and little healing time would most likely be interested in an alpha-hydroxy acid or glycolic peel.  Both peels are fruit acids as they are derived from fruits in nature.  Glycolic acid comes from sugar cane, while most other AHA acids are derived from citrus fruits.  While gentler on the skin than deeper peels, this level does offer short healing times and fewer side effects. Within a few treatments, you’ll start to see improvements in your skin’s tone and texture.

NeoStrata rejuvenating peels are the original “lunchtime” peels; earning the name because they provide clinically proven benefits with little to no down time.  These peels are appropriate for all skin types, including skin of color.  Multiple strengths allow for flexible options and enable us to safely design a treatment program around your skincare needs.  NeoStrata chemical peels in conjunction with NeoStrata skin care products, for use at home, can be used to help address pigmentation irregularities, acne and photoaged skin.

Retinol Peel

Retinol peels provide the well known benefits of retinoids in stimulating new skin growth and reversing aging skin as well as being very effective for acne.  This advanced, physician strength peel contains 3% retinol in addition to Retinol Boosting Complex to exfoliate and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  Retinol peels improve skin laxity while promoting a bright, even and clear complexion.
