Chemical peels provide a chemical exfoliation of the skin and can be customized to any skin type and many different skin concerns. It results in fresher, glowing skin.*
At Heritage Way Medical Spa Burlington, Chemical Peels are recommended to our clients to effectively treat and address skin conditions that affect the superficial layer of the skin. Chemical Peels may be used to treat acne, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and superficial Melasma. Chemical Peels are also effective for “anti-aging” and maintenance of healthy skin and the peels can be modified to suit all skin types and most skin conditions.*
Chemical Peels involve the application of an active solution, or combination of solutions, to the skin. The active ingredient exfoliates the dead, sloughed, superficial skin to allow more vibrant skin underneath to emerge.* There are several medical grade Chemical Peels provided at Heritage Way Medical Spa which can treat a variety of skin concerns:
- Lightening (Yellow) Peel
- Green Algae Peel
- Dermamelan Peel
- Azelan Peel
- Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)
These can provide excellent results when done in combination with appropriate skin care or other treatments.
An enzyme peel is used to deeply cleanse the skin by treating the upper layers of skin tissue. This product is called a peel because it literally helps to peel dead skin cells off of the skin. By removing dead skin cells, the face is left clearer with a more even tone and texture. Furthermore, by removing the dead cells from the skin, these peels help to promote renewal within healthy skin cells.
Sometimes these kinds of peels are called restorative enzyme peels. This is because, in the process of peeling away the dead skin cells, the skin is restored and becomes healthier and more able to heal and renew itself. One of the ways that an enzyme peel can improve skin health is by reducing acne. By thoroughly cleaning the pores and removing dead skin cells that may be clogging the pores, a peel can help to improve clarity in the skin.
An enzyme peel is often made with fruit enzymes that both nourish the skin and help to slough off the dead skin cells. The most popular are the enzymes found in papayas, pineapple and pumpkin. Enzyme peels are usually used in conjunction with microdermabrasion or chemical peel treatments.
