What are Chemical Peels?
drs skincare offers customized chemical peel treatments for many skin concerns, and to achieve overall enhancement and improvement in the condition and appearance of the skin. Due to the variety of treatment combinations and benefits that are available, we recommend that patients schedule a consultation to discuss their needs and goals. This allows us to conduct a professional evaluation to design an ideal treatment plan.
What types of Chemical Peels are available?
The product line we use for chemical peels are from Alumier MD Peels. This treatment may be recommended for melasma, fine lines, acne, large pores, roughness, and dullness. It is appropriate to be used on any skin type. Exfoliants, retinol, and other agents combine to achieve healthier skin and combat some of the bothersome signs of aging. This innovative treatment exfoliates dead skin cells and promotes cellular turnover. A patient will enjoy improvement in skin’s tone and texture, as well as a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also serves to unclog pores, which helps to prevent future breakouts, and it provides antioxidant protection, along with anti-irritant properties.
Other products and treatments can be combined with chemical peels for enhanced results. Masques can be added to target more specific concerns, including:
- A Sulphur Masque Acne Treatment will absorb surface oils on the skin. This helps to reduce undesirable oiliness without over-drying, as well as to prevent clogged pores and breakouts.
- An Aloe Hydra Masque soothes the skin and promotes hydration. This botanical treatment reduces skin irritation, redness, and inflammation.
- A Skin Brightening Sheet Masque provides immediate skin brightening, along with moisturization and hydration.
