A chemical peel can help improve the appearance of the facial skin. Peel treatments involve the use of a special solution to safely lift and remove the epidermis. This stimulates the rapid production of new surface skin, resulting in smoother skin texture, less wrinkling, and diminished visibility of scars or other discolorations. Before deciding to undergo a medical chemical peel, however, you should learn about the different types of peel treatments. The use of different chemical solutions and the length of time it is left to treat the skin will determine the type of results you get. Your skin type, tone, and texture, along with the amount of wrinkling and hyperpigmentation you are experiencing, will help our specialist develop the best treatment plan for you.
Candidates for Peel Treatments
Until recently, only those individuals with rather light skin tone were considered ideal candidates for medical chemical peels. Acids tend to bleach the skin and cause an overall lightening of skin tone. Today, however, newer chemical solutions can be safely used on individuals with darker skin.
Ideal candidates will have mild to moderate wrinkling, age or liver spots, dark freckles, and other regions of hyperpigmentation on the skin. Our medical professional will help you decide if this treatment is right for you during your consultation.
The Retamax Chemical Peel
The Retamax Chemical Peel developed by Zo Skin Care is our treatment of choice when it comes to chemical peels. Retamax is unique among other peels in that it combines Vitamin A, plant stem cells, and antioxidants into one powerful treatment, leading to rejuvenated skin and continued protection against future damage. Unlike other types of peels, the unique blend found in Retamax also encourages the body to produce more collagen and hyaluronic acid, which leaves you with even better results.
During Your Consultation
We always recommend that our clients come in for a consultation to discuss the Retamax peel. This consultation will also give us the chance to examine the face closely, check medical records if necessary, and address the realistic outcome expectations.
