If your skin has been damaged by the sun or acne, or if you would like to reduce the appearance of fine lines or uneven pigmentation, you may benefit from a Chemical Peel. Schedule a consultation with your skin care specialist to learn which Rhonda Allison treatment will be most beneficial for your skin.
When combined with a Rhonda Allison home care regimen and repeated every 2 to 4 weeks over a period of 2 to 3 months, Chemical Peels can help improve sun damage, lighten age spots and diminish the appearance of acne scarring. Fine lines are reduced, and your skin’s overall health and appearance is dramatically improved over time with regular use.
Bella Luce Skin Care Offers Three Levels Of Chemical Peels:
PROGRESSIVE – $110
This refers to a treatment that does not usually cause immediate exfoliation and only removes the outer layer of skin or the stratum corneum. As treatments are repeated, the skin will experience a mild sloughing.
MID-DEPTH – $145
These peels affect the intra-epidermal layer, and exfoliation occurs within two to three days after application. The skin goes through very little down time. Peeling consists of light flaking similar to a sunburn peel.
DEEP – $175
These peels affect the deepest intra-epidermal layers. The skin becomes brown and crusty then undergoes considerable peeling, which occurs three to four days after application. The skin peels in large segments as opposed to flaking. The entire process takes about seven to ten days.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are chemical peels?
Chemical peels deeply exfoliate the skin and accelerate skin cell regeneration, revealing younger, softer, smoother skin. This non-invasive procedure helps minimize fine lines, lighten age spots, reduce acne breakouts and even-out blotchy, hyperpigmented skin. Deep peels are typically performed under anesthesia, by a physician. Medium peels can be performed by skin care specialists but still require some time for skin to recover. Light peels are commonly referred to as “lunch time” peels, because the procedure takes a short time to perform and doesn’t inflame the skin. Quick recovery means no downtime; you can return to work immediately following the procedure.
What results can I expect from my Peel?
When you undergo a series of peels in conjunction with a Rhonda Allison home care regimen, you can expect to see visibly smoother, more even-toned skin. The peels can help heal and reduce the appearance of sun-damaged skin, acne scars, age spots, superficial pigmentation, wrinkles and fine lines. With a home care regimen and proper sun protection, results can last months depending on the strength and depth of the peel. The best way to preserve the more youthful appearance achieved by peel treatments is to care for your skin daily, inside and out. A daily skin care regimen recommended by your skin care specialist, combined with adequate sun protection and good nutrition, will most effectively help you retain the rejuvenated look and feel of your complexion.
How long does a peel take and how many do I need?
Depending on your skin type, a Chemical Peel can be applied in as little as 30 minutes. Chemial Peels should be repeated every 2 to 4 weeks over a 2 to 3 month period. Repeating the peel over an extended period of time allows younger, softer skin cells to surface, resulting in significantly improved texture and tone.
What will it feel like during and after the peel?
Everyone has a different experience depending on many factors, but usually during the 1 to 5 minutes that the peel formula is on your skin, you will experience a mild-strong tingling/stinging sensation. If you feel anything more intense, you should inform your aesthetician immediately.
Depending on the strength of your peel, it is common to experience some temporary peeling, flaking, scaling, redness or dryness of the skin for up to 5 days following the peel. These conditions are the result of the peel exfoliating the top layer of skin so that new cells can rise to the surface. These effects will disappear as the skin adjusts to the treatments. After each successive peel, you will notice your skin feels progressively smoother and softer and will appear more even-toned.
Are there any reasons I should not undergo a Peel?
Consult with your physician if:
You are pregnant or lactating
You have used Accutane or retinoic products within the last 4 weeks
You have open wounds or a herpes breakout
You have had plastic surgery within the prior 3 to 6 months
You have recently waxed or have a fresh sunburn
Are there any risks associated with having a Peel?
Exfoliation peels are generally considered quite safe, and complications are extremely rare. However, complications that may occur with any peel may include burning, headache, nausea, or dizziness. Report any severe reactions to your esthetician and/or physician immediately. Less serious complications may include temporary reactions like “hot spots” or skin crusting.
What should I do after a Peel?
Minimize direct sun exposure and use sun protection
Do not exfoliate your skin for at least 3 days
Do not apply any product with Benzoyl Peroxide for at least 3 days
Do not apply any product with Retin A for at least 3 days
Wait at least 10 to 14 days before having collagen injections in your face
Wait at least 7 to 10 days before having Botox injections in your face
Ask your aesthetician to recommend the exfoliation peel that is best for you, and get started on the path to a younger, healthier looking complexion
