Chemical Peels for Every Occasion
Who doesn’t love a healthy, glowing complexion — especially after having to hide our faces behind masks for the past year? Patients are always coming into our practice wanting to know the newest treatments and products to help them achieve that 24/7, 365 days a year glow. Many are often surprised when we tell them that one of the tried and true treatments for achieving just that (and so much more) is a chemical peel! This has been a staple treatment in the aesthetic industry for years, but today I want to give you a bit of a refresher on why it’s such an incredible addition to your skincare routine and the many peels available here at Seiler Skin.
Let’s first address the elephant in the room: we all know someone who’s gone in for a chemical peel and left looking a bit scary. Chemical peels can be intensive depending on the type and level being administered, but our team is always going to find the right one for you. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all solution for anything we do, and the same goes for peels. Our team is equipped to hear your skin concerns, determine the correct peel and administer it in a way that’s safe and effective. Milder peels can do wonders for your skin, and after a few days leave you with a complexion that’ll leave you going “wow!”
I recently did one of our deeper peels — the Rejuvenize Peel from SkinMedica — as part of my regimen, and after a few days of mild peeling, I noticed a significant change in my skin. Not only did I look healthier and glowy, but I even saw some of the pigmentation in my cheeks disappear. My pro tip: alternate between peels and HydraFacials to see the best results. They both stimulate the skin, but in different ways. Chemical peels are more intensive in that they provide deeper cell turnover and collagen remodeling and address skin concerns like texture and pigmentation. HydraFacials, on the other hand, provide superficial exfoliation to “refresh” the skin by cleansing and hydrating.
Now, you may be wondering — is every peel the same? While peels are largely based in the same science, we have a variety of ones at Seiler Skin that can be customized to your concerns and that feature some of our favorite brands. Here’s a snapshot of just a few:
- Advanced Corrective Peel – perfect for improving forms of pigmentation, especially melasma caused by pregnancy or hormones.
- Vitalize & Rejuvenize Peels – these two patient favorites really give you a healthy look by improving skin texture, evenness and clarity.
- Gel Peels & Illuminize Peels – want a noticeable glow before an event without the peel? If so, these are the ones for you!
- Smart TCA Peel – as one of our deeper treatments, this peel heals the skin to address fine lines, wrinkles and even acne scarring.
Well now that I’ve peeled back the curtain and shared with you one of our (and my personal) skincare secrets, it’s time to experience the difference a chemical peel can make in your skin’s health firsthand!
