What Is A Chemical Peel?

Simply put, a chemical peel is an acid solution (there are different solutions) that is applied to the top layers of the skin that causes it to exfoliate and slowly peel off. This uncovers new, regenerated skin that has a smoother, fresher appearance.

What Issues Do Chemical Peels Help Correct?

Medical-grade chemical peels are most commonly used to address:

  • Sun damage (sun spots)
  • Age and brown spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Improve acne-prone skin
  • Minimize clogged pores

This 30-minute treatment may be customized to accommodate all skin types. The Micropeel is ideal for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, texture, laxity, dullness, and skin imperfections. This is an instant gratification peel with no social downtime.

Micropeel Plus

This medical grade treatment provides a unique one-step, self-neutralizing chemical exfoliation designed to reduce acne and help correct environmental skin damage.

It is formulated with a combination of salicylic acid (Salicylic 20% or 30%) to refine pores and help reduce the appearance of acne and glycolic acid to aid in the improvement of rough texture, blotchiness, and uneven skin tone.

One week following a Micropeel Plus treatment, your skin will undergo its renewal process — light to moderate peeling may occur for up to 3 days. This is a great treatment for active acne, cystic acne, and acne scarring.

ADVANCED CORRECTIVE PEEL

This is the second most intensive, advanced chemical peel we offer at Viva Day Spa + Med Spa. The 30-minute Advanced Corrective Peel from SkinCeuticals works in the lowest (basal) layer of the epidermis, where live tissue, pigmentation, and age spots dwell.

Formulated with clinical-grade acids and a maximized peel concentration of phenylethyl resorcinol, it’s unique combination of ingredients sloughs off even the most stubborn pigmentation, evens skin tone and texture, and helps minimize enlarged pores.

As part of your chemical peel, you’ll also receive a Smart TCA Restorative Masque. It is patented and exclusive for use post-TCA, with a botanical blend to bind moisture to the skin and prevent loss of hydration.
