"Let us give you that radiant look!"
The Aesthetic Peel gives new life to dull, sun-damaged complexions by deeply exfoliating the epidermis, smoothing and tightening the skin while fading brown spots and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.
The Aesthetic Peel is a medium chemical peel that uses a combination of Trichloracaetic Acid (TCA) and Jessner’s Solution to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. During the peel you may feel a mild to moderate burning sensation while the solution is being applied and for as long as it remains on your face. Cooling techniques are utilized to keep you comfortable during the procedure.
Immediately following the Aesthetic Peel, your face will be covered with a concentrated moisturizing ointment. Within a few days, your skin will begin to turn bronze. The skin will then feel tight and begin to peel and flake for seven to ten days. Once the old skin has exfoliated, your new skin will be bright, radiant and smooth.
It is especially important to wear a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher each day. It is also important to avoid direct sun exposure during the healing process and for at least 3 months after the treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a good candidate for the Aesthetic Peel?
Any person who has fine to moderate wrinkles, age spots, pigmentation problems or sun-damaged skin. The peel may not be suitable for people with very dark skin because it poses a greater risk for hyper pigmentation. The peel cannot be performed on pregnant women or persons with recent excessive sun exposure. Call for consultation.
Is there any discomfort associated with the Aesthetic Peel?
You will feel a mild to moderate burning or warming sensation for a few minutes while the solution is being applied. Cooling techniques are utilized to keep you comfortable during the procedure. Once the peel is completed, you should no longer feel the warm, burning sensation.
How much downtime should I expect?
After the procedure, your skin will appear bronze in color and feel tight. You will have to wash your face and apply a concentrated moisturizing ointment six times a day for nine days. In about 2 days, your skin will begin to peel and flake. The peeling and flaking will continue for about nine days. You should not be in any discomfort during the recovery time and can resume your normal activities without make-up.
Will I need more than one Aesthetic Peel?
Most people see dramatic improvement in their skin after just one Aesthetic Peel. However, skin that is more severely damaged may require up to three peels spread about eight weeks apart. It is a good idea to do a maintenance peel about every 6 to 12 months.
When can I apply make-up?
Make-up can be worn on the 10th day following the peel. Make-up cannot be worn prior to that because you will need to wash your face and apply a concentrated moisturizing ointment six times a day for the first nine days.
Can I have the Aesthetic Peel if I have had other skin treatments?
Absolutely. People who have had other treatments are perfect candidates for the Aesthetic Peel because their skin has been somewhat preconditioned for the procedure. Depending on the type of treatment you have already had, you may have to wait a few weeks before having the Aesthetic Peel.
