Chemical appeal-Today’s professional peels deliver dramatic results with little to no downtime.
The prospect of stripping away years of skin damage in a non-invasive, virtually painless way is universally appealing. That’s why chemical peels are so popular for treating signs of skin aging.
“Peels remove all that dry, dull debris and reveal the smoother skin underneath”, says Charmaine Cooper, Education Manager of Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute. “In as few as three treatments, professional peels can dramatically reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines, smooth skin texture and even reduce breakout.”
But what about the downtime? With today’s innovative technology, we’re happy to report that the latest peels result in little to no downtime at all! They’re also far more powerful and safer than at-home peels.
Dermalogica peels are practically effective because they work with the skin, not against it – to reduce multiple signs of premature again, skin roughness and acne. Dermalogica skin therapists are specially trained to apply our peels in a multi-phase approach so that they work synergistically and safely. The first two phases involve the use of hydroxyl acids and enzymes to remove damaged epidermal (outer) layers of the skin, while the third phase helps intensify exfoliation activity and stimulate collagen production. In the fourth and last phase, skin-soothing botanical neutralize the peel process and calm the skin before you even leave the treatment room.
Generally less painful than laser treatments, chemical peels can be performed as outpatient procedures. To further minimize downtime, and get the best results, a series of three peels are usually performed over 6-12 weeks, followed by maintenance twice a year.
Professional peel results depend greatly on the quality of pre- and post-peel skin care at home! Ask a Dermalogica skin therapist how to properly treat your skin with Dermalogica products.
