There are a lot of choices in chemical peels on the market, and some are better than others. One of the best, and one we offer at Skintherapy, is the Image I Peel.
What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels continue to be a popular skin care treatment because they provide excellent results for aging, acne-prone, or sun-damaged skin. If you are looking to treat acne, smooth wrinkles, improve skin texture, and address sun damage, then this is likely a good treatment option.
Essentially, a chemical peel uses chemicals to remove layers of the outermost layers of the skin and to improve skin quality by promoting skin healing and regenerating skin tissue.
This effective treatment isn’t for every skin type or issue, however. The best results are usually seen on lighter skin types and skin that is not overly sensitive. Talk to your skin care professional about if chemical peels would suit your skin type or issue.
All chemical peels have some sort of “down time” after treatment. This is because they cause your skin to peel off the dead and unhealthy layers. So, make sure you plan accordingly to accommodate some time at home post-treatment.
What Makes Image I Peel Great?
Produced by Image Skincare, the Image I Peel blends trichloroacetic acid, slicyclic, and retinol to effectively treat aging and sun-damaged skin. This aggressive treatment can only be done at a clinic. Best of all? A single treatment can achieve desired results from this peel.
The Image I Peel is gel-based and it includes brightening and lightening agents, and a skin-toning agent.
One of my favorite features about this peel is that it is fully customizable. You can choose from six facial boosters to enhance the treatment. Those boosters include stem cell, hyaluronic acid, kojic acid, retinol, Vitamin C, and antioxidant facials.
Your skin care professional will help you choose what’s the right I Enhance facial for you.
