3. What is an Advanced Peel?
A Advanced Peel is an intensive form of exfoliation. Exfoliation is the removal of the dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, and has been used for many years to help maintain the skin. Exfoliation may be manual such as a facial scrub or microdermabrasion, or a chemical peel or enzyme mask. Many prefer advanced peels to manual methods as it produces a more even texture and can achieve deeper exfoliation in a more gentle fashion. Our new advanced peels offer intensive resurfacing with targeted results, and are a more effective choice for treating acne as manual exfoliation can spread the bacteria and cause irritation. There are many types of peels varying in strength, and only professional estheticians, nurses or doctors may administer clinical concentrations. These treatments can be repeated every two to four weeks due to rapid recovery rates. Multiple treatments may be needed to see the desired results. The use of a high quality sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 is important after receiving a chemical peel to protect the new more sensitive skin and maintain the results achieved.
