The Perfect 10 Peel has been designed to deliver what patients are after: a peel that actually peels and exfoliates the skin and delivers desired results. In five steps, your patients will be on their way to beautiful skin.
The Universal Perfect 10 Peel is formulated for all skin types including Fitzpatrick IV, V, and VI. Ideal for patients with sensitive, normal and tolerant skin.
The Intermediate Perfect 10 Peel is for first time peel patients and is a step up from Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid or similar peels. The Intermediate peel is formulated for Fitzpatrick skin types I-II-III and is recommended for sensitive, normal and tolerant skin patients
LACTIC ACID 20%
Lactic acid peels are best for people who have very sensitive skin that might not be able to tolerate the slightly more intense glycolic acid peels. Although lactic acid peels are gentler, they usually provide many of the same benefits as the other peels, but in a less intense version. You can reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and help to improve acne or oily skin. Even dry skin can benefit from a lactic acid peel, as it can restore PH and help the skin drink in moisture.
MANDELIC ACID 40%
The Mandelic acid peel is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) based facial peel. Typically, there is no peeling from a Mandelic peel, but some will experience flaking of dead skin cells post treatment. The most noticeable result of a Mandelic peel treatment is the GLOW! The peel works at unclogging pores, exfoliating dead skin and renewing the skin’s appearance and tone.
A Jessner peel is a medium-depth chemical peel that works to improve skin health by helping remove and heal skin damage that is more extensive than regular “wear and tear.” This skin care treatment is stronger than most superficial chemical peels, and therefore creates more temporary damage to the skin in the process.
What will I notice after one Peel?
- An improvement in your skin’s texture and tone
- Lessening of fine lines
- A healthier more youthful appearance
Who should consider a Peel?
Anyone who wants their skin to look better and help fight the effects of time should consider chemical peels. Those who have sun-damaged, aging, blemish-prone, acne scarring, hypergigmentation, melasma or general poor skin quality will benefit most.
How long will the treatment take?
From start to finish, the procedure should take approximately 10-15 minutes. There is little downtime.
What should I do to prepare for my peel?
Because chemical peels are a non-invasive procedure, very little preparation is required prior to treatment.
What to expect during my chemical peel?
Your hair will be tied back and your face cleansed before your treatment, and you will be instructed to close your eyes as we apply the chemical peel. Up to three layers of the peel formula may be used, depending on your needs and preferences.
You may feel mild tingling and an itching sensation that intensifies as additional layers are applied. Be sure to let us know if you feel too uncomfortable during the treatment.
A final layer may be applied to the treated areas to neutralize the peel formula when your treatment is complete depending on which chemical peel we use.
Who is not a good candidate chemical peels?
Patients who should avoid chemical peels include:
- Patients with a history of allergies, rashes or other skin reactions or anyone with an allergy to salicylates (i.e. aspirin)
- Patients who have taken Accutane within the 6 months, or received chemotherapy or radiation therapy in the last year
- Pregnant or breastfeeding (lactating) women
- Patients whose skin has been recently waxed or shaved, sunburned or exposed to exfoliating agents
What should I do after my peel?
It is imperative that you use sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) and moisturize your skin after your peel. Special post-peel cleansers designed for sensitive skin may be used after your treatment, however you should avoid washing your face for at least 1-2 hours after your peel.
We recommend limiting sun exposure for at least one week after your peel. When washing your face do not scrub and use a gentle cleanser. Some mild to moderate flaking and peeling may occur in the treated areas for the next 1-3 days following treatment, and you may use moisturizers to control this. Avoid “helping” the skin to peel. Do not have any other facial treatment for at least one week after your peel. You may resume the regular use of Retinols, alphahydroxy acid (AHA) products, Vitamin C, or bleaching creams ONLY after the peeling process is complete.
You should see results after just one treatment, however a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart may be necessary to achieve optimal skin rejuvenation.
Your results will be evident in your smoother, more even complexion and healthy skin glow.
