Peels improve the clarity, tone and texture of your skin, helping it exude what is sometimes called a “youthful” glow that can make your skin glow with improved texture and clarity.

A light peel can help improve your skin’s texture and fine wrinkles. A medium peel can help improve the look of age spots as well as fine wrinkles, while a deep peel can remove relatively deep wrinkles, dark age spots and generally provides the most improvement to your face.

A peel also can help improve the look of crow’s feet around your eyes, which gives it an advantage over dermabrasion, which cannot be used near the eyes.

The three different levels of peels are:

• Light peels
• Medium peels
• Deep peels

Light Peels

A light chemical peel is very mild and best for those who need minor improvements to their skin. Most light peels include glycolic, salicylic or lactic acid peels. The upside of these light peels is that they require very little downtime, so much so that they sometimes are called “lunchtime peels,” in that they can be performed by our trained aestheticians, and you can resume your daily tasks and activities immediately after the peel.
You will almost immediately see improvement in your skin’s overall texture. For best results, you should have the light peel treatment four to eight times over a period of several weeks.
All light chemical peels are applied in Luminous Spa and Wellness.

Medium/Deep Peels

A medium or deep chemical peel usually involves placing trichloroacetic acid (TCA) on your face. This peel provides a much greater level of surface skin removal.
The rejuvenation results are much deeper than those of a light peel, a medium or deep peel can correct acne scars, provide greater improvement of uneven skin pigmentation, improve the skin’s tone and texture, smooth fine lines, and more. These peels reveal new skin layers by exfoliating the outer layers of dead skin, providing your skin with improved color, tone and texture.
While a medium or deep chemical peel can give you incredible results, it’s important to remember that the initial healing period will be longer than a light peel – the initial healing period can take as long as six weeks. Also, a deep chemical peel does have a greater risk of hypopigmentation, particularly for those individuals with naturally darker skin.
