Professional Peels: Facts Vs Fiction
Interested in a chemical peel but unsure whether it’s safe or effective? There seems to be some confusion when it comes to facts vs fiction, so let us at Sanctuary Salon – the best day spa in Orlando – clear things up by giving you the facts.
FICTION: CHEMICAL PEELS ARE UNSAFE
FACT: Professional peels from a med spa in Orlando are formulated with a unique ingredient blend that acts as an exfoliant, revealing the layers of fresh, rejuvenated skin. Professional chemical peels from Sanctuary – an Award Winning spa & salon in Orlando – are a highly effective way of minimizing scarring, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and evening out skin tone and can even work as an acne treatment.
FICTION: SKIN WILL EXCESSIVELY PEEL POST-TREATMENT
FACT: The skin may or may not peel after a chemical peel treatment like various facial spa treatments, as peels can be tailored to your needs and goals. The visible enzyme peel facial or chemical face peel can be limited or maximized depending on your ultimate skincare goal. Many of the skin peeling treatments available work at the cellular level, so physical side effects are minimal. A little redness and sensitivity may occur afterwards, so it is highly recommended to wear sunscreen as recommended by your skin care professional.
FICTION: CHEMICAL PEELS CAN’T BE USED ON SENSITIVE SKIN
FACT: Even if you have sensitive skin and suffer from acne, rosacea, or eczema, you can still receive a professional chemical peel as part of your skincare and facial treatment, as there are specific peels that are specifically formulated for sensitive skin such as the chemical peel for acne.
FICTION: CHEMICAL PEELS MAKE YOUR SKIN HURT AND LEAVE YOU RED
FACT: Our professional peels and luxury facial treatments in Orlando Florida with their unique ingredient blends deliver a comfortable treatment experience without sacrificing efficacy, leaving your skin with a healthy glow and minimal downtown. Some guests even schedule these Skincare treatments during their lunch breaks!
FICTION: ONLY PEOPLE WITH PROBLEMATIC SKIN SHOULD DO CHEMICAL PEELS
FACT: While chemical peels are very effective at resolving skin imperfections, they are also helpful at maintaining skin health and appearance. In other words, if you are satisfied with your skin appearance, chemical peels and related facial treatments in Orlando can be used as a treatment option to help restore your healthy skin and prevent things like aging, clogged pores, dull skin and uneven skin tone.
WHAT ARE PEELS FOR?
Professional peels are for everyone. Whether your skin is dry, oily, combination or sensitive, there is a peel treatment that will work for you.
WHEN DO I GET A PEEL?
Professional peels are usually recommended once a month, paralleling the skin’s natural 28 –day cell turnover process for the best results. Depending on your skin concern, Sanctuary’s deep facial cleansing spa may recommend it more or less frequently.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A PEEL?
Professional peels have a large number of benefits.
- Reduced visible fine lines and wrinkles
- Fewer acne breakouts
- Diminished discoloration and a more even skin tone
- Increased cell turnover process
- Softer, smoother skin
HOW DO PEELS WORK?
Professional peels speed up the exfoliation process, encouraging skin turnover that leaves the skin looking fresh and healthy, therefore they are effective anti aging skin treatments. Ingredients in the skin peeling treatment solution are also working to create new cells that function properly not only visibly improving the skin but correcting it from within.
CAN ANYONE HAVE A PEEL?
Not everyone is suited to all chemical peels. There are certain chemical peels that should never be performed on those with darker skin tones, as they are prone to skin pigmentation. However, the Vi Peel was one of the first chemical peels developed that is safe for patients of all skin types – meaning patients with both light and dark skin. It is important to remember, peels are not a ‘one size fits all’ treatment. Peels come in many strengths and forms and you must always seek the advice of a qualified skin professional from a spa like Sanctuary – the best spa for facials – before embarking on a series of chemical peels.
