As we age, effects of sun exposure as well as acne and pollutants can damage our skin causing us to look older than we are. Chemical peels are used to treat such skin damage therefore possibly restoring a more youthful appearance to wrinkled, sun-damaged, unevenly pigmented and blotchy skin. Rejuvenation MD offer several different types of chemical peels to suit your individual need.
What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemicals are applied topically that help to rejuvenate the skin surface by creating a controlled reduction of the old skin cells, allowing new layers to become exposed possibly creating a smoother texture and fresh appearance.
Do Chemical Peels Hurt?
During the chemical peel, a burning sensation may gradually develop soon after the solution is applied to the skin. A cold compress or fan may be used to alleviate this. In some cases, a more intense burning followed by a tightening sensation can be present. This sensation can last up to 10 minutes. In this instance, a fan or cold compress may help alleviate most of the discomfort.
What Peels Are Offered at Rejuvenation MD?
Currently in our office we offer two different chemical peels.
- The Perfect Derma™ Peel
- The Enlighten RX Peel
The Perfect Derma™ Peel is safe, effective medium depth peel for All Skin Types & Ethnicities. This product is virtually painless, with no pre-peel skin preparation and little downtime. The Perfect Derma™ Peel is the only peel that includes the powerful anti-oxidant Glutathione, which lightens and brightens the skin, slows down the aging process and helps prevent wrinkles.
The Enlighten Depigmentation Peel reduces and eliminates acquired skin blemishes for certain types of skin pigmentation that don’t respond to more traditional treatments, increasing skin luminosity and equalizing skin tone. This two-step prescription process actually communicates with your cells, bringing discolored pigmentation up to the surface to increase cell turnover, and then goes even deeper to inhibit discolored pigmentation.
