Chemical peels and IPL provide phenomenal results for your skin.
Regular IPL treatments can remove pigmented and vascular lesions all the while improving skin texture, tone, and overall pigmentation issues.
IPL or Photo Facial uses broad spectrum visible light to target melanin in pigmentation spots, broken capillaries and rosacea. Once an area has been treated with IPL, patients may see areas resembling coffee grinds or black specks on the treated area. These will eventually flake off the skin and results can be seen even after 1 treatment.
Chemical peels can be performed at least a week after an IPL treatment to easily remove these “coffee grinds” and leave your skin feeling refreshed and renewed.
Chemical peels have the added benefit of addressing enlarged pores, oily skin, pigmentation concerns, acne scars, wrinkles and sun damage. Chemical Peels also help to aid the natural exfoliating process which slows down as we age. This deeper exfoliation helps to resurface the skin and trigger new skin growth.
Chemical peels use glycolic, salicylic , or lactic acid that helps to remove the upper layers of the skin while stimulating deeper cellular renewal.
Lighter chemical peels will deliver light surface results with little to no down time, while deeper peels that require more down time, yield further resurfacing results.
For both Chemical peels and IPL treatments it is vital that patients stay out of the sun completely.
Protecting the skin from further damage is essential in maintaining good results. It is best to use a mineral based sunscreen with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide every day. This will avoid any pigmentation issues and prevent damage from the sun.
