How a Peel May Help With Your Dark Spots

What is a Peel?

Peels, also called chemical peels, are aesthetic treatments that give you a way to resurface your skin. This allows you to literally peel away the top layer of your skin, where the cells may be dead or damaged from the sun, pollution, acne, or a number of other things. 

Here at Heights Aesthetic Laser Center, we use the Pro peels because we find them to be the safest and most effective. Dermalogica offers a couple of different peels that all focus on different skin concerns.

They offer:

What Should I Expect When Getting a Peel?

Your licensed provider at Heights Aesthetic Laser Center can talk with you about the changes you’d like to see in your skin. Based on that, they recommend the Hollywood Peel or the right dermalogica PRO chemical peel. If you choose a chemical peel, your specialist applies the dermalogica PRO peel solution to your skin. You might feel some tingling or warmth. Ultimately, though, the treatment is a lot like getting a facial. What to expect after your peel depends on the peel you chose. If you don’t want any downtime, your provider may recommend a superficial peel or the Hollywood Peel. Peeling and flakiness may occur, depending on skin type and sensitivity level. With a medium-depth peel, you usually peel for a week. With a deep peel, your skin may peel for ten days or more. It’s important to keep your skin protected from the sun after your peel. Once you finish peeling, you’ll have a full face of radiant, more even skin. 

What Does Each Peel Do?

UltraBright Peel: Lactic Acid peel brightens and hydrates, reducing the appearance of early signs of aging and helping to even skin tone.

AdvancedRenewal Peel: Glycolic Acid peel reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles.

AGEreversal Peel: TCA peel minimizes the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles to address advanced signs of aging.

PowerClear Peel: Salicylic Acid, Mandelic Acid, Malic Acid, and a patented Terpineol-Thymol Complex target blemishes, redness, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
