SPA BELLA MEDI SPA DENVER CHEMICAL PEELS
Chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. In the treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to react and eventually peel off. New, regenerated skin comes to the surface to replace the skin that falls away. This new skin is smoother and more evenly pigmented, with fewer lines and wrinkles. It is generally performed on the face, neck and hands.
Denver chemical peel options include alpha hydroxy acid, beta hydroxy acid, retinoic, glycolic, and lactic acids, and may be customized to correct acne, sun damage, and oily or aging skin. Since there are many options, we always recommend a consultation with one of our professionals to help determine the right peel for your skin type, tendencies and needs.
The Lactic Acid Peel is alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the outer layer of your skin to encourage new cell turnover. This particular chemical peel is a natural humectant and pulls moisture from the collagen level to the surface of the skin, deep cleaning and eliminating toxins and dead skin cells. It is an excellent acid choice for dry and sun damaged skin. Lactic acid is derived from milk and is much milder on the skin than Glycolic or Salicylic peels. This is a great peel for people with sensitive skin.
The Lactic Acid Peel will fade dark marks, improve hyperpigmentation, brighten and lighten skin, improve the appearance of light wrinkles, and stimulate collagen. It can be used for treatment of the following: acne, acne scars, blackheads/whiteheads, dry skin, sun damaged skin, blotchy pigmentation, fine wrinkles, loss of elasticity, large pores, in-grown hairs, age spots, eczema, Seborrheic Keratosis, Hyperkeratosis, and Actinic keratosis.
The Jessner Chemical Peel is a superior treatment and a deeper peel designed to remove superficial layers of skin. This peel combines resorcinol, lactic acid and salicylic acid to result in deeper penetration and great exfoliation of the outer layers of skin cells. The deeper exfoliation produces noticeable flaking and exfoliation in the three to four days following the peel. Within a week, a new layer of smoother, healthier skin will emerge.
A Jessner peel consists of a minor peeling agent that can be used to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation and to treat aged sun damaged skin. It is excellent for most skin and particularly good for treating patients with acne, oily or thicker skin, because it tends to decrease oil production and open clogged sebaceous follicles. It also contributes to the healing process of acne. It smooths and rejuvenates skin, producing beautiful results in treating mild to severe acne, discoloration, moderate wrinkling and sun damage. This peel can be done on the face, neck, hands and upper chest, based on need.
The MandeliClear Peel can be classified as a modified Jessner Peel with Mandelic acid added to it. Mandelic acid is derived from almond or wild cherry. The treatment is very effective at lightening pigmentation issues for people with darker skin types such as Asian, Indian or African American skin without risk of post inflammatory reactions. Additionally, it is an excellent solution for any skin type with pigmentation issues due to acne, melasma or photodamaged skin.
