CHEMICAL PEELS

THERE ARE A WIDE VARIETY OF chemical peels available. All are superior exfoliating treatments designed to remove the superficial layers of the skin, thus revealing the healthy, clear, younger skin beneath. As part of a treatment program for sun-dameged, acne prone, hyperpigmentation or aging skin, peels are a safe, effective, non-toxic method of skin correction. A professionally educated and licensed aesthetic nurse can tailor a chemical peel to your needs and desires. At Avalon, we will create a specialized peel for you-customizing chemical composition, strength, and treatment to address your skin's unique needs.

MEDIUM -DEPTH CHEMICAL PEELS

Types of medium-depth peel: Jessner / TCA / 80% Alpha-Hydroxy Resurfacing Solution

These peeling agents reach slightly deeper into the skin than alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) peels--and thus often produce stronger results.

About the peel: A medium-depth peel treatment is done to address skin flaws of rather deep nature.  It is used to treat wrinkles, sun damages or skin’s discoloration that do not normally respond to a lighter or less invasive chemical peels.

Who can benefit from this peel?

A medium-depth peel is excellent for all skin types. It smoothes and rejuvenates skin, producing beautiful results in treating mild to severe acne, discoloration, moderate wrinkling, and sun damage. Chemical peeling treatments for the neck, hands, and upper chest is also quite effective.

How Does a medium-depth Peel Work?

Medium-depth peeling is a skin-resurfacing treatment: it removes dead skin cells, uncovering a "new" layer of skin that appears smoother and more vibrant. As a result, it softens fine lines, minimizes superficial "age" spots and other skin discolorations, and generally improves the tone and texture of your skin. These peels are also very popular for diminishing the appearance of acne scars. More than one treatment may be recommended. Treatments are usually spaced 2 to 3 months apart.

What Happens after the Peel?

Soon after the peel, mild to moderate redness and sensitivity will be
    experienced that lasts for 12 to 48 hours.
As the skin is preparing to shed, some areas will become darkened.
The skin gets dry and tight.
About three to seven days after the treatment, flaking or peeling of the skin starts. 
   To avoid any complications, you should not pick the skin. If you do so, the skin may develop scars
   and healing time can be delayed.
The skin becomes very sensitive to the sun, and you have to protect it by using a broad spectrum
   UVA/UVB SPF 30+ sunscreen daily. | PRICE UPON CONSULTATION

LIGHT-DEPTH CHEMICAL PEELS

Acne Peel

This resurfacing agent is a combination BHA (salicylic acid) and AHA (alpha hydroxy acid). The salicylic acid works down to the sebaceous gland, thus slowing oil production that clogs the pores. The glycolic acid is a keratolytic agent that breaks up the keratin in the cell, gently exfoliating dead skin cells, and increasing cellular turnover. This dual effect makes it an excellent, safe and gentle peel. Shedding will occur within 24 hours, and the skin may appear darker due to exfoliation of dead skin that has melanin present. This will gently shed off.

This treatment is ideal for young and mature skin that has excess oil, large pores, and acne

This is how the regeneration of new cells and increased production of collagen happens to create a younger, healthy, and less wrinkled skin.
