A chemical peel is an umbrella term for a range of science-based topical chemical skin resurfacers.  When done properly, by a licensed esthetician, this procedure is a powerful non-surgical step to skin improvement.  The intensity of the peel determines the formula that can fade age spots, soften fine lines, and leave skin significantly younger-looking.  Like any skincare treatment, peels are determined by your skin type and needs. 


There are different levels of peels


Superficial peels (sometimes referred to as “lunchtime peels”). These are the mildest, and require little downtime. You may experience some redness for 20 minutes to half an hour afterward, and you may experience some dryness or flaking over the course of a few days, but otherwise, you can get back to business as usual.  Superficial peels are good for treating fine lines and wrinkles, large pores and dark spots, and to help tighten the skin.  It is great to have one of these peels several days before your "special" event.

Medium-depth can help treat skin that has a significant amount of photodamage, sun spots, mild to moderate acne scars, crepey skin under the eyes or dark circles.  These peels require more "down time and recovery".  

Deep-depth, The deepest peels, target more serious skin issues such as severe acne scars, excessive sun damage or looseness of the skin. Deep-depth peels may not be suitable for those with darker skin tones, as they could result in scarring or hypopigmentation. These peels require more "down time and recovery" as well as follow up skin care. 

A comprehensive skin care program is recommended, especially after chemical peels. Talk with Theresa for more information about the Lira Clinical products available.
