I’m Dr. Roxi, and today I’m excited to share some insights into the world of chemical peels right here at Fountain of Youth Salisbury. If you’re looking to revitalize your skin and address issues like fine lines, acne scars, or uneven tone, you’re in the right place. Let’s dive in and uncover the science behind these transformative treatments.
First things first, what exactly is a chemical peel? It’s a cosmetic procedure where a specialized solution is applied to your skin, prompting exfoliation and the removal of outer layers. This process encourages the growth of fresh, smoother skin, leaving you with a more youthful appearance.
Here’s a breakdown of how Chemical Peels works:
Before we begin, it’s essential to prep your skin by removing any makeup, oils, or debris. Sometimes, we’ll use a prepping solution to optimise the effectiveness of the peel.
2. Application of Chemical Peels Solution:
There are three main types of peels:
Superficial Peel (Light Peel): This gentle option targets the outer layer of your skin with mild acids like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). It’s perfect for minor imperfections and requires minimal downtime.
Medium Peel: Stepping up the intensity, this peel penetrates deeper into the skin with stronger acids like trichloroacetic acid (TCA). It’s great for addressing more noticeable issues but may require some downtime for recovery.
Deep Peel: Reserved for severe skin concerns, this peel reaches several layers deep with potent acids like phenol. It offers significant results but comes with a longer recovery period and potential side effects.
3. Reaction and Peeling:
After the solution is applied, your skin undergoes controlled exfoliation, shedding old layers to reveal fresh, new skin underneath. It’s like hitting the reset button for your complexion.
At Fountain of Youth Salisbury, we offer two fantastic Chemical Peel options:
Radiant Peel: Ideal for beginners, this customizable peel is gentle and unlikely to cause significant peeling. It’s perfect for addressing issues like rosacea, acne, and overall skin improvement.
Glow Peel: For those ready to take their skin to the next level, the Glow Peel offers deeper exfoliation and a wide range of benefits, from improving texture and tone to tackling signs of ageing and pigmentation. This is a medium depth peel.
At Fountain of Youth we don’t offer a deep peel as the risk of side effects are just too high and it’s our belief that slow and steady wins the race.
