Lots of things seem to get slower as we age. Our hair growth slows. Our metabolism starts to crawl. Our purposeful walk becomes more of a shuffle. Even our skin cells don’t shed themselves with the same frequency as they did when we were young.
This buildup makes the skin wrinkled, blotchy and can give it a somewhat drab tone. A chemical peel with the team at Spa Vitoria can force some of those skin cells to shed again, rejuvenating the skin as it did in your younger days.
The goal is to remove the top layers of the skin, exposing unlined, new skin beneath; or to remove the skin and force the body to replace it with new, fresh skin.
What can be addressed with chemical peels?
- Decrease discoloration
- Reduce and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve skin tone
- Improve the appearance of minor scars
- Reduce the appearance of dark areas from pregnancy or birth control pills
- Treat certain forms of acne
- Decrease the prominence of sun spots and other sun damage
How do we do chemical peels at Spa Vitoria?
The concept behind a chemical peel is to apply a chemical to the skin (usually the face) and then allow that chemical to penetrate the layers of the skin, causing peeling in a few days.
At your appointment, your skin is first thoroughly cleaned, and your eyes and hair are protected. We then apply the chemical solution to your treatment areas. The solution and its duration on your skin are dependent on the patient’s individual skin conditions. We use glycolic, salicylic acid, or lactic acid. These acids are all naturally occurring in foods such as fruit or dairy products.
