Chemical Peels


Chemical peels are acidic solutions that are applied to your face to smooth the surface of your skin, improve your skin tone and color, diminish wrinkles, and shrink blood vessels and pore size.

Several types of peels are available. The light peels are made with acid solutions in concentrations much stronger than those available in over-the-counter products. The medium peel goes deeper within the skin using a solution of Salicylic, Resorcinal and Lactic acids (also called the Jessner Peel). The mightiest of peels uses phenol acid, which can only be administered in a hospital setting, due to the potential of dangerous side effects. (Skin Solutions does not offer phenol peels)

A light peels will leave your face red, but it probably will not actually peel. A Jessner Peel causes your facial skin to tighten and darken/discolor. This is normal; the skin is preparing to lift the dead surface layer, revealing healthier, new skin. The recovery time usually takes about seven days.

The Jessner Peel helps to reverse the appearance of the aging process and diminishes wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne scarring and loss of elasticity.

Chemical peels can be combined with a schedule of microdermabrasion treatments to achieve greater effects. Microdermabrasion treatments can be used with Photofacials, and other treatments to enhance their effectiveness.
