Did you know that between the months of November and March are the best time to start a chemical peel regimen and shed that “winter skin”? Because in most areas, we are out of the sun and the heat, it’s a great time to start to get the skin into shape. Having a series of professional chemical peels is a great way to get rid of dead layers of skin, so you are able to reveal the fresh, new, and smooth skin underneath!
Chemical Peels are helpful with a variety of skin issues including fine lines and wrinkles, acne, hyperpigmentation from sun or old acne scars, and even rosacea. Here at Pulse, our licensed estheticians perform Rhonda Allison Chemical peels, which differ depending on the skin issue we are trying to correct.
Rhonda Allison features a multitude of different enzymes and acids in her line, many of which are naturally derived. Some acid and enyzme highlights are:
Tomato Acid- Tomato has many naturally occurring acids and antioxidants – the anti-bacterial benefits make this a specialized peeling for problematic, oily, acne-prone skin. .
Hibiscus Flower Acid- Hibiscus Flower Acid Peel blends the next generation of AHAs with an enhanced Azelaic Mandelic Complex, to induce cell turnover for renewed, freshened skin. Helping to smooth and even skin tone and balance oil production, this healing treatment provides more hydration than lactic acid while offering strong lightening benefits. Enhanced even more with phytic pyruvic acid, this soothing peel stimulates collagen activity, provides antioxidant benefits, gives extra support for acne, impure skin conditions, and is great for those with rosacea, sensitive skin.
Kojic Acid- Kojic Acid is derived from mushrooms and has excellent lightening and antibacterial abilities, which make it ideal for acne or acne hyperpigmented skin, or skin that has sun damage.
These are just a few highlight ingredients of the many peels that we are able to perform here at Pulse. Our peels are strategically layered and you might hear the words “lactic” or “TCA (Tri-choloro-acetic) acid” in our vernacular as well. It’s really important to come in for a full consultation before any sort of chemical procedure, so if you are interested or unsure of what is appropriate for you, please come in and ask us!
We have an excellent gallery of before and afters on our website. Please check them out here!
Post peel skin support is also extremely important! What happens when you peel, how long you peel, and what you should be doing during your peel are all things we are going to cover in the next post. Have you had a chemical peel before? Drop us a note in the comments!
