A chemical peel involves the application of chemical solutions to the face and neck in a controlled manner, thus producing chemical exfoliation. Chemical peels are a great treatment used to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, freckles, sun-damaged skin, irregular skin pigmentation, acne or acne scars.
There are a variety of peels used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using different solutions that cause the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off. The type of chemical peel used depends on the nature of the skin problems to be treated. Call 913-685-1108 to speak with a qualified member of our med spa team about your skin rejuvenation options.
The chemical peels we offer at our office are as follows:
Enjoy radiant, younger-looking skin in about a week with the VI peel. The peel provides superior results for all skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-6). Allow yourself 2-4 days of downtime for peeling.
The Jessner peel is not as aggressive as a VI peel. It is an effective option for lightening hyperpigmentation areas and treating skin that has been damaged by sun exposure. The Jessner peel is effective for all skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-6). Allow yourself 1-2 days of downtime for mild peeling.
A glycolic peel results in a more refreshed appearance. Its advanced formulation improves overall skin clarity and smoothness of the skin.
Keep in mind that your skin will be flush due to blood stimulation and heating of the skin. This peel is great for all skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-6). Redness the day of but no downtime necessary for this peel.
The main type of Beta-hydroxy acid peel, the salicylic peel is great for oily, blemish-prone skin, including whiteheads, blackheads, papules, and pustules. It is an effective alternative to the glycolic acid peel (see above).
This peel is also great for all skins (Fitzpatrick 1-6). Redness the day of but no down time necessary for this peel.
