When a client decides to do one of our Mid-Depth Superficial Peels they always ask how much skin exfoliation will occur. For the past week, our own skin esthetician Marie has been trying out the specific Vitamin A peel, to show the peeling process and the bright, beautiful effects it gives afterwards!
What is a Mid-Depth Superficial Peel?
It’s a light superficial complexion peel that is effective at exfoliating, regenerating, and stimulating all different types of skin problems. These acids used in treatments range from Alpha Hydroxy & Beta Acids to TCA & Retinol.
How much exfoliation can I expect from a Superficial Peel?
This all depends on the skin type, but you can expect only 1-2 days of heavier sloughing. The skin will begin peeling in 2-3 days, and peeling can take place at anytime for the next 7 days. However, the skin does not always visibly peel, it may take a 2-3 treatments for this to happen. There are many other advantages from a skin peel.
What are the benefits from a Mid-Depth Superficial Peel?
Benefits includes more smoother and softer skin, a health glow, less oil, more moisture retention, refined pores, improved pigmentation, diminished fine lines, increased acne control, helps sun damage, and decreases dark spots. Your skin looks overall healthier, brighter, and even toned.
What is specific in a Vitamin A Mid-Depth Superficial Peel?
A Vitamin A peel helps in treating sun induced wrinkles and pigmentation associated to aging skin. It helps rapid cell turnover occur which results in smoother, silkier skin. It also helps with the overall circulation of oxygen supply to the skin and aids in strengthening blood vessels. It supports the regeneration of skin and the reversal of aging. You can expect mild to excessive flaking after a few days from application.
What are the at home care instructions I must follow after the treatment?
Avoid sun and heat exposure during sessions and wear SPF 30+ daily. We ask you to not wear make up or do anything to the skin for the two days following the treatment. Further instructions will be given.
