Receiving a chemical peel is one of the best ways to fix your acne scars, sun damage, brown spots, and other aesthetic challenges. This beneficial treatment can also be used to decrease the severity of your fine lines and enhance the hydration of your skin. At Pristine Med Spa in Ridgecrest, California, we can provide you with peels that use glycolic acid and other gentle ingredients to enhance your complexion.
What Should You Expect When Getting a Chemical Peel?
After you decide to get your first chemical peel, you should visit our office in Ridgecrest and have a personalized discussion with our medspa professionals. We will use our skills and experience to assess your aesthetic issues and recommend a specific peel for you. Next, we will set up an appointment at our office. Since all of our peels are very safe, you should expect to have a relaxing experience when you receive this cosmetic treatment.
The details of your appointment will depend on the type of peel that you are receiving and the specific aesthetic problems that you would like to improve. That said, we will typically begin by gently cleaning the skin on your face or other target areas. Once we have prepared your skin, we will apply a customized chemical solution to your tissues. After a sufficient amount of time has gone by, we will carefully remove your personalized solution.
What Types of Peels Can You Receive?
We can use a variety of different chemical solutions to improve your cosmetic challenges and enhance your complexion. If you have mild acne, very fine lines, and other minor skin issues, we may advise you to receive one of our lighter peels. If you are dealing with deeper wrinkles and other significant aesthetic problems, we may instruct you to get a more powerful peel.
Salicylic Acid Peel
If you have blemishes on your chest, neck, or back, you might be a good candidate for our Salicylic Acid Peel. During this exfoliating peel, we will use salicylic acid to carefully remove some of the dead cells in your target area. This process will give you smooth, attractive skin and improve the condition of the clogged pores that are contributing to your acne issues.
Bio Lactic Resurfacer
If you have sensitive skin, you should think about using our Bio Lactic Resurfacer treatment to renew your appearance. This gentle treatment is designed to address your scars, acne, and wrinkles without irritating your delicate tissues. Under some circumstances, we may advise you to get this peel in combination with a microdermabrasion treatment.
After we apply your chemical solution, your fine lines will become less noticeable, your skin will be more hydrated, and your pigmentation problems will improve. Since we will use very mild ingredients to achieve these goals, you will not be required to spend any time recovering after your peel is complete.
Glycolic Acid Peel
You can address a variety of skin problems by receiving a glycolic acid peel. This versatile treatment will improve your scars, blemishes, and wrinkles. The glycolic acid that we apply onto your skin will also decrease the visibility of your pores and hydrate your tissues.
TCA + Retinol Peel
If you have severe acne or other significant skin issues, you may be a good candidate for one of our deeper chemical peels. Our TCA + Retinol treatment is a powerful peel that can fix your acne problems, pigmentation challenges, and wrinkles. This peel will also enhance your skin’s texture and decrease the prominence of your scars.
How Long Will Your Recovery Period Last?
Since all of our peels will use a different technique to enhance your complexion, the length of your recovery period will be unique. For example, you will have no downtime after you use our Bio Lactic Resurfacer treatment to fix your acne and other skin issues. Since our TCA + Retinol treatment is a deeper peel, your skin is likely to take more time to recover from this anti-aging treatment.
When we pick a specific peel for you, we will tell you more about your recovery period and give you personalized aftercare instructions. For example, we may advise you to avoid spending too much time in strong sunlight for a couple of days. In addition, you might be required to avoid using certain beauty products for a while.
Should You Receive Follow-Up Treatments?
Receiving follow-up treatments will extend the benefits of your original peel and allow you to enjoy beautiful skin for a long time. If you are using one of our lighter peels, we may recommend receiving regular maintenance sessions. For example, you might get several peels every year. If you receive a stronger peel, you will need to wait longer between each of your treatment sessions.
Improve Your Skin
