Chemical Peels: We’re of the mindset that we should call these something else, like the Lemon Peel or the Apple Peel or Face-Appeal. Although the term “chemical peel” doesn’t sound terribly nice, the effects of a chemical peel can be transformative, leaving you feeling and looking years younger. If that’s the result, we think your improved complexion will have you hooked on chemical peels, regardless of the name!
A peel involves a chemical solution that is applied to the face. The chemicals and acids in the solution cause the underlying cells to slough off, revealing the new skin, which is younger-looking and radiant. Peels also greatly reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, especially those around the mouth and eyes. Your new complexion will have a smoother and softer texture, and with fewer of those pesky fine lines that are so annoying.
Chemical peels can be performed on the face, neck or hands and have tremendous results, including:
Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
Treating wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
Improving the appearance of mild scars
Treating certain types of acne
Reducing age spots, freckles, and pigmentation issues (melasma), resulting from sun exposure, childbirth or birth control pills
Improving the look and feel of skin
Increasing the production of new collagen to the treated areas
Stimulating new, healthy skin growth
A few of the more common peels include Salicylic, Glycolic, Lactic, Vitamin C, Modified Jessner’s, and blends with Kojic and Retinol. And at L’Arte Della Bellezza, we even have an organic “Passion Peel” complemented by the Ormedic Organic product line. You can get more information on our chemical peels here.
It’s important to note that after a chemical peel, you may experience increased sensitivity to the sun. Apply sunscreen about 30 minutes before sun exposure, and a daily sunscreen should always be worn.
Pricing for chemical peel treatments ranges from $85 – $120, depending on the peel you choose. Packages of six peels are available for $600.
