What is the Process?
Your Nirvana certified technician will first clean the treatment area, then apply the chemical peel solution to the face, neck or hands. The type of chemical solution used will depend on the condition being treated, but a variety of solutions can be mixed to treat many different conditions. Peels can improve the skin’s appearance. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it “blister” and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Consult your technician about treating and protecting the sensitive skin at home, and about receiving multiple treatments over the course of a few weeks.
What does it Treat?
Peels target fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, scarring, acne, unwanted freckles or dark patches.
What are the Results?
An improved overall shine and softness of skin, in addition to reducing the look of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and acne. After a peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so wear sunscreen every day. It should say “broad-spectrum” on the label, meaning it protects against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. Also, it should be a physical sunscreen and be above SPF 30. Limit your time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and wear a wide-brimmed hat.
