Chemical Peel Appeal

Chemical Peels offer a non-surgical approach to help with aging skin. Commonly used peels are Glycolic Acid based which is a natural product derived from sugar cane and is great for exfoliation and moisturizing the skin, while stimulating new cells.

These new cells reveal smoother, brighter, younger looking skin. Peels can help reduce fine lines under the eyes, around the mouth, and help with wrinkles caused by sun damage. Peels also help improve mild scars, reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills.

Age SpotsOur customer Deana recently called from Florida telling us how she has been getting Chemical Peels periodically to keep her 50+ skin looking younger. However, her aesthetician suggested they increase the peel to 70% and it was too strong for her skin type and she had a negative reaction. She raved about how Smart Cover’s Camouflage Make up helped cover the severe red spots and sent us this before and after photo. She was so grateful for her best concealer so that she could return to work without worrying that people were staring at her forehead.

We asked Aesthetician Andrea Neubart, who has been a professional in the skin care field for over 20 years for some helpful tips.

Andrea says, ” I always begin with a consultation with my clients to learn more about their goals, lifestyle and skin condition.  Does she have time to follow up with more peels and follow close attention to home care? Is the skin thin or thick? What about sensitivity and will they stay out of the sun and wear higher sunblock? All depending on these answers it’s best to start with a low Glycolic %.”

How many treatments does one need?

According to Andrea, “Sometimes one peel is all you need depending on the goals and what type of peel treatment are they looking for.  We now have peels with a mix of ingredients to help with several issues such as lightening, firming, and wrinkle reduction.
