Chemical peels have been used since ancient times when they were prized in such metropolitan areas as Rome and Egypt for making the skin more beautiful. Today, chemical peels help to provide much the same results. However, the difference comes in the sheer number of chemical peels from which you can choose. When you ask for a chemical peel, you must choose the type of results that you want, the type and length of treatment that you are willing to undergo and the length of recovery that you are willing to have.
A light chemical peel is the easiest option because it is very quick to receive and because it comes with very few side effects. Although your skin may look reddened initially, it will quickly calm down and heal. This peel is best for very minor concerns, such as dull, dry skin that has lost its glow or mild lines from aging.
If you are looking for a bit more with your peel, a medium peel may be the right choice for improving hyperpigmentation, treating enlarged pores, improving skin texture, and getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles. While you may have a little more of a recovery following this peel, it is usually worth it for the results that you will get.
Our peels at Jon Ric International Health and Wellness certainly offer impressive results. Some of our favorites include the Retin-A-Peel and the Acid Peel. All chemical peels work in much the same way. They use safe but strong chemicals on the skin to get rid of some of the topmost layers of skin cells. The difference among the different types of peels comes in how deep these peels work. Some work only on the epidermis while other go far deeper.
No matter which of our peels you choose, you can know that it will be applied safely and gently and that you will be treated as our priority from the moment you step into our office.
