Chemical Peels: SkinCeuticals Clarify, Brighten, Tighten, Smooth

Chemical peels are a great way to improve your skin, for a bright, smooth, clear appearance. Naturally occurring acids are applied to the skin to remove the top layers and promote cell turnover, revealing smoother and younger-looking skin. They offer a variety of benefits, including:

  • Reduces visible signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and dullness by exfoliating surface cells
  • Softens and smoothes the skin’s surface texture
  • Decreases the frequency of acne breakouts and fades the appearance of post-acne discoloration

 

Peels are essential for optimal treatment of photodamage, acne, rosacea, fine wrinkles, dullness of the skin, and melasma. Here at Angell Medical Spa, we can provide Medical Grade Peels for more immediate and dramatic results. Depending on skin type and desired results, there is are options for Medium or Deep Peels.

We strongly encourage a skin care & conditioning plan including Medical Grade chemical peels prior to, or in conjunction with, other anti-aging procedures. This will help you make the most of your treatment plan.

Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA): They promote skin’s renewal process, specifically for the treatment of acne and inflammation caused by acne. It is ideal for oily, combination, and acneic skin with moderate post-inflammatory pigmentation. Key benefits include: reducing acne, refining the appearance of pores, and improving rough texture, blotchiness and uneven skin tone.
