The wait is over! You have probably heard about chemical peels — or more specifically, the Alumier MD Glow Peel — from your favorite sources of skincare tips. These simple and fast treatments have practically no downtime and work wonders on giving your skin a youthful glow while treating conditions like acne, redness, and more. We are pleased to announce that Skin Concepts now offers these peels in-house!
Unfortunately, peels have gotten a bit of a bad rap in the media. Sex and the City notably, had an episode where a character had an especially bad reaction to a peel. Even the words “chemical” and “peel” next to each other can sound scary. In reality, modern chemical peels are quite safe and effective. They involve using very mild, pure acids to encourage your skin to shed its outer layers. In other words, they are a kind of super-exfoliant.
When you come into Skin Concepts Day Spa to get a peel, you will receive a customized treatment that goes exactly as deep as you want it to. You can opt for a gentle peel that only removes a few of the dead skin cells on the top of your epidermis, or you can go for a deeper peel that targets a healthy layer of cells to reduce the appearance of freckles, wrinkles, and lines. The Alumier MD Glow Peel
is a fairly medium peel, making it especially easy for you to customize your treatment. Short sessions can keep sensitive skin happy, while long, repeated treatments can penetrate deeply for serious improvements in problem areas. So what’s in a Glow peel? The exact chemicals used include 7% lactic acid, 7% resorcinol, and 7% salicylic acid. These ingredients synergize to form a safe and effective treatment that’s especially good at reducing hyperpigmentation. Glow peels are especially good at restoring an even complexion to individuals with dark spots, blemishes, or reddish hues in their skin.On top of that, the exfoliating action kicks your skin into gear, forcing it to replace your aging skin cells with fresh new ones. This helps restore a youthful appearance in many ways: by reducing wrinkles and fine lines, but also by generally improving the tone of your skin.
Since Glow peels are customized to each client, you will have a slightly different experience than other people receiving similar treatments. You can expect to have little to no downtime. All that we ask is that you avoid touching your face for about a day after the peel. In the next week or so, you will probably experience some flaking on your face and your skin might feel tight and dry. This is totally normal. We will give you plenty of instructions on how you can care for your skin as the peel works its magic. You can definitely go outside and interact with people like normal during this period.
After a week or so, the peel should be totally done working. You will have a brand new layer of fresh skin to show off to the world!
