Chemical Peels IN BOZEMAN, MT
What Are Chemical Peels?
For the best results from chemical peel facial treatments, Instinct Holistic Medical Spa provides you with several options. Your personalized chemical peel with exfoliating solutions (such as glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acids) will reveal healthier, more radiant skin. At our Bozeman, MT office, our experienced team of specialists offers chemical peel treatments, including VI Peel, alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) peels, beta hydroxy acid (BHA) peels, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels, and Jessner’s Peel, to minimize skin irregularities, such as scars, wrinkles, fine lines, dry patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. Chemical peels work by removing damaged, dead skin cells by applying a specific solution to your skin that causes the surface layer to peel off. When your skin heals and begins to rejuvenate and repair itself, you may notice a smoother, clearer complexion. A chemical peel treatment is a noninvasive method to make your skin luminous and is appropriate for the face, neck, and décollatage.
What Can I Expect During A Chemical Peel Treatment?
Chemical peel candidates typically have visible issues with their skin, such as acne scars, rough patches, flaky skin, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and more. At your procedure at Instinct Holistic Medical Spa, we will have you lie down in a comfortable position to administer your peel. One of our specialists will make sure your skin is cleansed before applying the customized solution to your face, neck, or both. We will massage the solution onto your skin and let it work for a specific amount of time, which will be discussed in your treatment planning session. Finally, we will wash the solution off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. Patients are encouraged to bring a light sunscreen or a hat to wear outside after the treatment to protect against UV exposure.
Depending on the strength of the chemical peel you choose, you should expect your skin to itch and peel from a few days to a couple of weeks. Your technician will explain how to care for your skin during the appointment. Please remember that no matter how much your skin itches throughout the healing process, it is never a good idea to pick the skin off. You could create scarring on your delicate skin.
What Types of Chemical Peels Do You Offer?
At Instinct Holistic Medical Spa in Bozeman, MT, we offer the following chemical peel options:
A medium-depth chemical peel that exfoliates the skin and encourages collagen and elastin development. It can be used on all skin types and tones, and is gentle enough to be used on sensitive areas like the eyelids.
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are naturally occurring acids, most often derived from fruits and nuts, that are fantastic for exfoliation and help produce a more radiant complexion. They may be especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin.
Beta hydroxy acid (BHA) peels are also known as salicylic acid, and have antimicrobial and sebum-fighting properties. They are best for oily skin and can help prevent the small bumps known as keratosis pilaris.
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) formulations can help treat several skin conditions, including age spots, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, wrinkles, and lines. Lower acid concentrations of this peel typically treat pigmentation issues, while stronger peels usually treat wrinkles and more severe scars or lesions.
A Jessner’s peel relies on a combination of acids, often mixing lactic, salicylic, and citric acids. The Jessner’s peel can treat a variety of skin issues and can be complemented by TCA or glycolic acid for a more comprehensive peel.
