Advanced Chemical Peels At Tampa

CHEMICAL PEELS SKIN CARE

What is a chemical peel and what does it do for your skin?

Chemical peels are a form of exfoliation, and have a number of benefits, primarily to improve the appearance of dull, aging skin and lessening fine lines and wrinkles, acne treatment.

Chemical peels work because they are highly acidic, dissolving and eradicating dead cells on the skin's surface, and revealing younger cells below. Peels used to be more aggressive and rarely done at resort spas, but the emergence of lighter peels has made them more available in Tampa.

There is a wide range of chemical peels and they peel to different depths: very superficial, superficial, moderate, and deep. The depth of the peel is determined by three factors: how acidic it is (also known as the ph), the percentage or strength of the peel (20 vs. 70 percent glycolic) and how long it stays on the skin.

Lighter peels exfoliate on the outermost layer of skin, called the epidermis. Moderate and deep peels go down into the skin's living tissue, called the dermis, and involve more risk, more discomfort, and more healing time.

The chemical peels offered in a day spa are classified as "very superficial" and "superficial" peels, because estheticians can only work on the skin's epidermis. But just because they are "superficial" doesn't mean you won't have results.

Your skin should just look smoother, softer, and brighter. Light chemical peels can provide dramatic results on middle-aged to older clients who haven't been exfoliating. They can also be good for unclogging pores and increasing cell turnover on acneic skin. These light chemical peels are usually done in a series of four to six, a week or two apart.

Superficial chemical peels may tingle or feel a little hot, but they don't require the downtime and healing required of moderate and deep peels. Examples of very superficial or gentle peels include a 20% glycolic or a 25% lactic acid peel. A superficial peel can range from 30 to 50% glycolic peel. 

The most aggressive "superficial" peel is a Jessner's, which is not offered in most spas. Moderate to deep peels can reach into the dermis, or living part of the skin. Because they have a doctor on staff, medical spas generally offer more aggressive peels, including "moderate" peels like TCA (trichloroacetic acid) and 60-70% glycolic peels. 

No matter what the depth of the chemical peel, it is important to protect your skin from the sun afterward skin care. It's better not to get one on a vacation when you want to spend time outdoors. Be sure to wear sunscreen after your peel. 

Make it possible

 Chemical peels are used for a variety of cosmetic concerns, including wrinkle and scar minimizing. They work by removing the top layer of skin (epidermis) to help new cells regenerate. This process is called exfoliation.

Lana is very experienced and knowledgeable of all types of skin and I am very impressed with her care of my teenager with acne. We are on the right track to helping him through his skin issues without pharmaceutical drugs. Also, her rooms are so nice and welcoming. There is lots of space and her equipment is top notch and very clean. Thank you!

I had Microneedling done with a chemical peel to reduce my pores and help even out my hyperpigmentation. Lana was amazing. She did such A wonderful job I left with my skin glowing, and I noticed a difference already in my skin. I’ve had two sessions with her so far she explains everything so well and educates me on my skin concerns. She is so welcoming and helps me relax during my facials. Thank you so much.
