They may be applied to the chest and back; anywhere there is skin. And they come in a variety of strengths and ingredients, depending on your needs. At Kiwi Spa we offer an assortment of hand-selected, effective chemical peels so you can have the skin of your dreams without the long recovery times typically associated with more intense treatments.
What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical Peels are combination of topically applied acids that aid in the restoration and rejuvenation of the skin surface. Peels create a uniform and controlled shedding of several layers of the skin. Depending on the nature and depth of the Peel , a significant number of layers can be exfoliated, stimulating new skin cell production and creating fresh vibrant appearance.
Who are the candidates?
Anyone! All depends on skin type, Fitzpatrick scale level and the desired results, as well as which level of Peel is most appropriate.
What are the benefits of a Chemical Peel?
Chemical Peels can enhance the appearance of the skin by reducing blotchy and uneven
pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, age spots, sun-damage and acne scars, in a relatively brief amount of time. Chemical Peels accelerate the production of new skin cells revealing fresh and smooth skin immediately after the first treatment.
What are the side effects?
Chemical Peels are popular due to the many advantages and relatively low risk of complications.
Side effects are rare, and usually temporary. Some potential side effects can include uneven pigmentation, redness, and (very infrequent) scarring of the skin that is not appropriately pre-conditioned.
Sun protection is critical to minimizing the risk of side effects. A customized home treatment program, including sun protection, will maintain the results of the peel.
Superficial Peels are designed to smooth the skin, improve the texture and uneven skin tone. Recovery is generally rapid and may involve some minor flaking. A series of treatments is recommended for optimum results, with little or no down time.
Performing superficial Peels in series can produce results similar to a medium or deep peel when the skin is properly pre- conditioned. Using the appropriate sun protection following treatment ensures regular activities can be resumed immediately.
Medium Peel are comprised of higher potency acids than the superficial peels. Medium peels
target the epidermis and upper dermis and cause the skin to slough within 5 to 7 days.
Immediately following treatment, the skin may appear red and is occasionally accompanied by swelling. Within a day, the skin turns brown in color, and after 3-4 days initiates the peeling process.
Deep Peels produce the most dramatic results. These peels are recommended for treating deeper wrinkles, scars, blemishes and, in some cases, precancerous skin lesions. A deep peel targets the dermis. In some cases, anesthesia is required during the procedure to reduce potential discomfort.
After a deep Peel, the skin is red and may result in some swelling and blistering. A crust may form, the skin may become tight and turn brown, just prior to peeling. Many layers of skin will peel over a period of 1 to 2 weeks. An ointment may be given to keep the area moist. Temporarily, the new skin will have
the color and sensation of significant sunburn, which will gradually fade to normal.
Now it’s a perfect season to get younger using fruit acids Peels. Sun is not that active like in summer time, weather is cooler, and we are not sweating as much.
Also, Peel therapy is very affordable compare to lasers, lifting treatments and injections of beauty.
