Everyone wants to have a clearer, smoother, and brighter skin. But most treatments out there don’t do what they claim to do. Acne scars, blemishes, and fine lines are some of the most common issues women face. Some of us have skin issues due to prolonged exposure to sun while some have acne-prone skin. Some did not take the right measures at the right time and are now a victim of premature aging and dull skin.
A chemical peel is a treatment that treats most of these skin problems.
What Is A Chemical Peel?
As the name suggests, a chemical peel is a process whereby the topmost layer of your skin peeled, revealing a more radiant layer hiding underneath. It removes dry, dull skin and debris that has been sitting on your skin for a while.
A chemical peel is a universally appealing and acceptable treatment due to it being non-invasive and virtually painless. And with the right kind of products like the ones by Dermalogica, the results are even more phenomenal.
Charmaine Cooper, Education Manager of Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute, assures that Dermalogica chemical peels have the power to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne and other scars, discoloration, hyperpigmentation, and gives you more supple, softer skin.
How Is It Done?
The application process includes a layer of enzyme, biphasic, and acid peel solutions. These are neutralized using a foaming deactivator in the last and fourth step.
Sodium bicarbonate, green tea leaf extract, yeast extract, and other cooling agents are used to neutralize the effect of the peeling solution.
The intensity of the treatment ranges from mild to intense, depending on your requirements and skin type. We advise you to never encourage your skin therapist to rush your treatment. If you have an event coming up, then please plan well ahead.
Number of Sessions
The number of sittings is generally determined after your first session. Your skin therapist will see how your skin reacted to the first round and will accordingly schedule the next one.
Most clients witness dramatic results within three treatments, which are generally performed over 6 to 12 weeks.
After you are officially done with your treatment, you must get maintenance treatment done twice a year.
Even though Dermalogica Chemical Peels are generally considered noninvasive, but there are some side effects involved. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, you may feel burning, itching, tingling, dryness, tightness or redness post-treatment.
You will see your skin peeling or flaking off within a week, which means under no circumstances can you expose yourself to direct sunlight. The fresh skin that is revealed is premature and can easily be damaged. So, we advise you to avoid sunlight, makeup, and strong skincare products for at least a week.
