Our AlumierMD chemical peels are designed to improve skin texture, reduce discoloration, decrease lines and wrinkles, and correct skin imperfections.
Chemical peels are classified as superficial, medium or deep, depending on the depth of penetration of the ingredients used. Superficial peels exfoliate to various levels of the epidermis and are formulated with ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acid, trichloroacetic acid and retinol. Medium and deep chemical peels cause protein coagulation and cell necrosis (cell death) in the epidermis and dermis, inducing inflammation and the wound-healing cascade leading to dermal regeneration including collagen stimulation.
Chemical peels are usually performed on the face, but may also be used on the neck, décolleté, back and hands. Enzyme peels also exfoliate and nourish the skin, usually made with fruit enzymes such as papain, found in papayas, and bromelain, found in pineapple.
We offer a selection of superficial to medium depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. We believe in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results, and to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels. Chemical peels should be performed by a trained skin care professional in a clinical setting so that they are delivered safely and effectively.
When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin. To be sure that the body doesn’t react to this deep exfoliation as it would to trauma,which can lead to pigment changes, exfoliation must be introduced gradually giving the skin time to adjust.
We will analyze your skin and recommend an individualized treatment program to address your specific skin concerns and needs. We can provide professional treatments as well as at home care products since they work synergistically to improve the health and beauty of the skin.
Pre-treatment products precondition the skin, accelerate results and minimize complications. Post-treatment products minimize complications, soothe the skin and then maintain the results. Professional treatments enhance the results of your home care products.
A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin. However, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne take time. We recommend a minimum of 2-6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
