A Chemical Peel isn’t as scary as it sounds, we promise!

 

The words “Chemical Peel” can be intimidating if you don’t understand the treatment process. We are here to help you understand the procedure and the benefits. We provide multiple strengths of chemical peels and a highly qualified Aesthetician who will assess your skin and determine the proper strength to meet your aesthetic goals.

 

Chemical peels often get confused with the common skin care mask.  A mask is typically applied to the skin, allowed to sit/dry and then peeled off.  They are often thick and can be done in a spa or at home. A medical grade chemical peel is a clear acid (such as glycolic or lactic) that is applied to the skin, and left to dry. These should only be applied by a licensed Aesthetician in a medical setting.  The acid breaks down the old skin and the peeling or shedding of the skin usually occurs 2 to 3 days after the treatment. The amount of peeling and days is determined by the strength, and desired outcome. The lower strengths produce a gentle peel. Higher strengths have a more aggressive peel. All peels encourage new skin to grow under the old, and when complete, you will see an improved complexion. Chemical peels can lighten brown spot and improve your skin tone leaving it brighter. The stronger strength peels can help reduce acne scars and the appearance of brown spots caused by sun damage.  

 

Don’t let the word chemical intimidate you. We offer complimentary consultations on all our skincare treatments.  Call today to schedule your appointment and enjoy brighter beautiful fresh skin. 248-524-3622

We are very excited to announce that Schenden’s Medical Day Spa is now offering VI Peel treatments. The Vi Peel contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. This peel provides dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and little downtime.

The VI Peel is extremely effective in removing sunspots from the face, hands, arms, and chest and eliminating the wrinkles associated with sun damage on the decolletage.

The VI Peel is effective on all skin types, and for the first time that is an excellent peel for African-American and darker skin types as well. Even some Asian and Latin skins can experience anti-aging and restorative skin care that was previously unavailable.  It is extremely successful in practically eliminating hyper pigmentation including melasma. The VI Peel also provides excellent results for patients with acne.

Depending on your skin type and needs, our aestheticians can customize a skin care regimen to maximize results. Our spa offers lactic, salicyclic, glycolic, jessner, VI Peel and IPL Laser treatments which all have a different benefit, and some can even be combined to boost your results.

Don’t let the word “Peel” Frighten you away…

What is a “peel”? The word “peel” may seem a bit intimidating or scary to those people who have yet to experience the treatment and witness the amazing benefits. Don’t let the name scare you away… once you try a facial peel you may be hooked for life. Sun exposure, acne or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or even scarred. If you desire smoother and younger looking skin, consider a chemical peel, which smooths the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers.

A chemical peel, is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Although chemical peels are used most commonly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands. Clients seek chemical peels to improve acne scars, aging spots, wrinkles, irregular pigmentation, rough patches of skin, scarring or even sun damage. Following a facial peel, most people leave with beautiful glowing skin, however occasionally there may be a slight redness that will quickly dissipate.

Now that you know what a facial peel can do for your skin, it’s important to understand what they cannot do. They do not treat deep facial lines, in that case you may want to consider facial injectables that boost collagen production or CoolTouch CT3 Plus treatments that boost collagen production. Peels do not assist with broken capillaries, if you experience an issue with that you would consider Telangitron. For deep scarring or burns you could consider scar revision, CO2 Deep Fractional Laser treatments or dermabrasion – all of which you would be handled by Dr Schenden and not in the Spa.

Chemical peels do wonders for the skin, so don’t let the word “peel” frighten you away; instead, consider scheduling an appointment for a skin evaluation to learn about all of the chemical peels we offer at the spa (Salicylic, Jessner, Glycolic, Mybody, Lactic, Microdermabrasion, Probiotic, Dermaplaning).
