WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?

According to some sources, chemical peels have been used since Ancient Egypt. Cleopatra used sour milk to improve the appearance of her skin. Lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) is the active ingredient in sour milk.
HOW ARE CHEMICAL PEELS CLASSIFIED?
Chemical peels are classified as light (superficial), medium, or deep, depending on the depth of penetration of the ingredients used. Light peels exfoliate to various levels of the epidermis. Medium-depth peels treat through the papillary dermis and deep peels to the mid-reticular dermis. Deeper peels require more downtime and increase the chance of side effects, which include photosensitivity, pigment changes and scarring.
WHAT IS ALUMIER MD'S PEEL PHILOSOPHY
We offer light- to medium-depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. We believe in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results, and to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels. Chemical peels should be performed by a trained skin care professional in a clinical setting so that they are delivered safely and effectively.
Chemical peels work by deeply exfoliating the surface layers of skin, forcing your body to replenish it with new cells quickly. When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and rejuvenates like younger skin. To be sure that the body doesn’t react to this deep exfoliation as it would to trauma, which can lead to pigment changes, exfoliation must be introduced gradually giving the skin time to adjust.
Your skin care specialist will complete a thorough skin analysis and recommend an individualized treatment program to address your skin concerns. She will create a personalized program that combines professional treatments with home care products since they work synergistically to improve the health and beauty of skin. Pre-treatment products precondition the skin, accelerate results and minimize complications. Post-treatment products minimize complications, heal and soothe the skin and then maintain the results. Professional treatments enhance the results of your home care products.
WHY SHOULD BENEFICIAL INGREDIENTS BE APPLIED POST PEEL AND NOT WITHIN THE PEEL SOLUTION?
Most beneficial ingredients for the skin tend to degrade or denature when placed in the low pH of chemical peel formulas. With that scientific information in mind, AlumierMD peels use only the pure acids;
Peels remove the outer dead layers of the stratum corneum, so the booster ingredients are better absorbed when applied post-peel. Our multilayer process can be customized by your skin care professional according to your skin profile and concerns.
ON WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY ARE CHEMICAL PEELS USED?
Chemical peels are usually performed on the face, but may also be used on the neck, décolleté and hands.
HOW CAN CHEMICAL PEELS BENEFIT THE SKIN?
Peel treatments improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even out skin tone, improve acne-prone skin and reduce pore size appearance.
WHAT ARE COMMON PEELING AGENTS?
Some common peeling ingredients include alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and retinol. Alpha hydroxy acids include glycolic acid (from sugar cane), lactic acid (from milk), citric acid (from oranges and lemons), malic acid (from apples and pears), tartaric acid (from grapes) and mandelic acid (from bitter almonds). Salicylic acid is the only beta hydroxy acid. The strength of a chemical peel is determined by the type of ingredients used, their concentrations and the pH of the formulation.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN AHA AND BHA PEEL?
AHA peels work by reducing sulfate and phosphate groups from the surface of corneocytes to decrease corneocyte cohesion leading to exfoliation of epidermal cells.
BHA peels are lipid soluble allowing deeper penetration into the follicle. As well, BHAs have anti-inflammatory properties and are able to neutralize bacteria. These properties make BHAs ideal for acne. BHAs work as both keratolytic and comedolytic agents by causing cells of the epidermis and in the follicle to shed, clearing the pores and allowing room for new cell growth.
