Facial Peels are an excellent treatment option to address common skin concerns like acne, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles. They improve the appearance of acne scars, exfoliate skin to help clear pores and prevent breakouts, enhance overall skin tone and texture.
While most peels are performed on the face, they can also be performed on other areas like neck, chest, décolletage, arms, hands, and even on the back to address back acne.
Recovery and results from the peel depends on which Facial Peel you receive. Superficial Facial Peels have little to no downtime or peeling. More advanced Facial Peels have about 4-7 days of peeling.
Types of Peels
Pamela Fletcher Aesthetics offers a number of different types of peels available for you to choose from, including:
The Mandelic peel is a great choice for those who are getting their first skin peel. It tends to be one of the more sensitive Facial Peels, while still being incredibly effective for improving the appearance of your skin.
Red Carpet Peels are a type of Facial Peel used to improve your skin’s appearance. As with other Facial Peels, the Red Carpet Peel removes the skin’s superficial layer. Following the peel, the cells die and peel away. Your body then initiates a healing process, bringing new, more youthful-looking skin to the surface.
TCA Peels (Trichloroacetic acid peel) are a medium strength skin peel that targets multiple skin conditions. TCA peels can help fix and alter skin discolouration and even out your skin texture. After a TCA Peel, you will physically see your skin peeling within a week, but once healed, new, youthful skin will come to the surface.
Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid, derived from sugar cane, sugar beets, and other substances. It is used as a medium-strength Facial Peel. Glycolic acid has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making it an excellent treatment for a variety of skin disorders.
Glycolic acid removes the surface and middle layers of skin, clearing dead skin cells and debris. Since glycolic acid is made up of small molecules, it readily penetrates the skin, eliminating the lipids that bind dead skin cells together.
