Are you looking for a quick and effective way to improve your skin’s texture and appearance, remove dark blotches, eliminate facial wrinkles and lines as well as create a rejuvenated skin appearance?
A “chemical peel” has a long history as a tried and true tested cosmetic procedure used to help people achieve smoother, more beautiful skin. Chemical facial peels are popular because they offer fast results and improve the skin’s appearance and texture and can reduce and even eliminate acne scarring, lines and wrinkles. Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is an alternative to chemical peels with less discomfort, a better outcome with no risk of hypopigmentation or one’s skin becoming too light.
Benefits of Chemical Peels:
- Improves skin texture and appearance.
- Removes dark patches and uneven skin tone.
- Eliminates wrinkles and fine lines.
How a Chemical Peel Works:
Chemical peels uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Chemical peels may also remove pre-cancerous skin growths, soften acne facial scars and even control acne.
Phenol, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) are used for this purpose. The precise formula used may be adjusted to meet each patient's needs. A chemical peel is most commonly performed for cosmetic reasons - to enhance your appearance and your self confidence.
What is a combined peel?
Combination of different types and strengths of chemical peels can yield superior facial texture and tone results. One example is by combining different strengths of Trichloroacetic acid and Salicylic acid in a phenol-free, in an anhydrous gel vehicle that limits ionization of the free acids. Limiting ion creation means limiting the pain and cellular injury associated with conventional TCA aqueous solutions. It also allows a longer contact time of the peel solution with the skin, thus enhancing efficacy.
A mainstay of aesthetic medicine, Trichloroacetic acid is a powerful keratolytic agent that can greatly improve the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. But as all practitioners know, a TCA peel isn’t pretty...Discomfort caused by application of the TCA solution, significant peeling, erythema, discoloration and the possibility of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation are but a few of its draw backs.
After a 10 minute contact period, the peel solution is wiped from the skin using a solvent containing a high potency Retinol. The remaining residue is left on the skin an additional period of time before wash-off, adding retinoid benefits to the retexturizing of the peel solution. Patient compliance is assured with a take home kit consisting of a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser, emollient physical sunscreen, additional retinoid treatment pads and niacinamide-containing moisturizer.
With improved patient care, comfort and less downtime, the JC Diamond Peel represents a new generation of multi-functional non-wounding chemical peels.
