Peels for Acne Prone Skin

If you really want to see a difference in the appearance of your skin, you should consider a professional treatment.  Peels are used to improve the texture of your skin, brighten, reduce lines & wrinkles, lighten pigmentation, even out skin tone, as well as treat conditions such as acne and rosacea.

The esthetician doing your treatment should help you understand how a skin peel works and what to expect after the treatment.

A peel is a means of chemically exfoliating the skin by breaking down the intercellular glue that holds together dead skin cells.  This “shedding” of dead skin in turn speeds up the CTR, or cell turnover rate, bringing new skin to the surface at a faster rate.  Generally there are three levels of peeling – superficial, moderate and deep/advanced peels.  Image Skincare’s peels line caters to all skin conditions and offers formulas for superficial, moderate and advanced peeling – depending on the desired result.

Level 1 peels, such as Image Skincare’s Signature Facelift™, can be considered a “lunch time” peel with little to no downtime, yet great results.  This is wonderful brightening treatment that restores the health of the skin using fruit enzymes and a 30% concentration of vitamin C.  Other level 1 & 2 peels by Image include the salicylic/glycolic solution – a popular choice for acne, as well as the lactic/kojic solution for lightening pigmentation.  Clients that want to achieve a more drastic result with advanced/level 3 peeling love the IMAGE Perfection Lift™ and also the TCA Orange Lift™.

Very important! To get the maximum benefit from a professional treatment, be sure to follow your esthetician’s instructions and maintain your skin with a good quality daily regimen.  Many people spend the time and money on professional treatments and immediately resume a poor home care regimen using products that deliver NO results.  Home care and professional treatments work hand-in-hand, so be sure to do your part at home to keep your skin healthy.

Remember, healthy skin is beautiful skin!
