Chemical & Enzyme Peels

Rejuvenate Your Skin

What is a Chemical Peel?

A Chemical Peel is a noninvasive, exfoliating treatment that relies on fruit acids, herbs, and antioxidants to loosen the “glue” that binds dead cells to the skin’s surface. It increases the production of collagen, improves the appearance of Acne, Rosacea, Environmental Damage, Hyper-pigmentation, Fine Lines & Wrinkles and Acne Scarring. The result is smoother, tighter, more hydrated skin, ultimately leaving you with a clearer, more youthful complexion.

What skin conditions can be treated with a Chemical Peel?

Acne & acne scarring, rosacea, environmental damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines & wrinkles.

LACTIC ACID PEEL: Lactic acid peels have many benefits for the skin. They exfoliate the surface of the skin, while deep cleaning the pores. They stimulate natural collagen production, even out the skin tone and improve hyper pigmentation of the skin, and will fade dark spots.

SALICYLIC PEEL: Salicylic peel breaks down the protein bonds between the layers of skin, which is why a much quicker peel can be achieved. For acne, the Salicylic acid has several properties that make it a very effective treatment for acne. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps to immediately reduce the inflammation of the acne. Salicylic Acid Peels are effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improving overall facial texture because it exfoliates both the skin surface and within pores. It has been found that Beta Hydroxy, Salicylic Acid is effective with as little as one-fifth the concentration typically found in products containing Glycolic Acid.

GLYCOLIC PEEL: Glycolic peel are used to smooth out the skins surface, even out the skin tone, and reduce acne scars and reducing appearance of wrinkles. Many people say that glycolic acid peels give their skin a special “glow”. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons states that chemical peels such as a glycolic peels can decrease the amount of bacteria in the skin to help reduce acne breakouts.

What is an Enzyme Peel?

An enzyme peel is a blend of natural fruit ingredients (enzymes) and is one of the gentlest methods of exfoliation. Enzyme face peels remove top layers of skin to exfoliate and expedite cell turnover, leading to a fresher, more glowing skin. The procedures are used all over the world to treat skin problems such as wrinkles and lines, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, and sun damage. Enzyme skin peels do not contain acids, therefore, it leaves the skin pH balanced.

What are the Benefits of Enzyme Peels?

Enzymes penetrate the upper layers of the tissue, cleansing pores and improving skin texture, tone, and elasticity. Enzymatic peel is very gentle on your skin. It doesn’t rub your skin like mechanical exfoliation methods and doesn’t loosen dead cells from skin surface like chemical peels. It stimulates new cell growth and accelerates the natural exfoliating process. It helps your skin to get rid of dead cells, promote cell renewal, clean pores and improve its texture and elasticity by accelerating natural processes in your skin.

H2O Oxygen Peel

The formula in the H2O Oxygen Peel is a blend of many different acids in low strengths that have a potent stimulating effect on the skin. It is considered a progressive peel. An oxygen based product that aids in tissue respiration, it is an excellent preparation for loosening surface trapped debris and toxicity in the skin. Impacted pores respond immediately opening the congestion in the skin and freeing the trapped debris and bacteria. Due to the stimulation of the skin, blood circulation is increased.

After the treatment and Oxygen Infusion is applied giving the skin a dose of hyaluronic acid with B5 to feed and nourish the cells with moisture and potent B5 which A 2002 study on skin disorders found that topical B5 combats aging and acne by improving skin hydration, maintaining skin elasticity, and increasing skin softness. The study also suggested that B5 has anti-inflammatory properties, making it useful in the treatment of skin scaling, roughness, and dryness.

Jessner Chemical Peels

Jessner Chemical Peels can provide improved skin appearance with a short recovery time. This procedure can restore cholasma/melasma-”stained”, sun-damaged, wrinkled, blemished, acne scarred or blotchy skin to a clearer more youthful appearance. The results are normally a smoother more even toned textured skin. The skin will look younger, tighter and “fresher” than before although it cannot remove all facial flaws. Deeper lines, wrinkles and other flaws may require additional treatments or techniques.

After the peel, do NOT pick or pull at the flaking or peeling skin it can result in scarring or discoloration. Also over moisturizing the skin will lessen the benefits of the peel, do not over moisturize to compensate for dryness. Peeling will begin in 2 to 3 days and full results of the peel in 5 to 7 days. A Jessner Chemical Peel is a combination of Salicylic, Lactic and Resorcinol Acids, and is considered a light to medium depth peel.
