Chemical peels are a great way to improve your skin’s texture and tone, giving you a fresh, youthful look. All it takes is 20 minutes of your time! Also, acne, wrinkles, blemishes, and more can be treated with a peel. There are lots of applications for peels and lots of reasons to consider one for yourself. If you’re interested in one, read on to learn more about chemical peel treatment in San Francisco, CA!
One of the biggest benefits of chemical peels is how versatile they can be. They can do everything from cleaning out your pores to fixing the skin issues you’ve been living with for years. Also, a peel will give you a glowing look you’ll love!
Even significant skin issues and some of the signs of aging can be addressed with a peel. Some of these are wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, acne scarring, rosacea, superficial scars, and hyperpigmentation. Some less common skin issues can be treated too. Also, a simple, light peel might be all you need to treat your skin issue, or a deeper peel can be done for more severe issues.
Since peels can be customized for each individual patient, peels can work for different skin tones and types. This adds to the versatility of peels. You might be worried about your particular skin type or tone, but don’t worry, because a peel can usually accommodate it. Just be sure to have a consultation with a proper professional.
Here’s another benefit of peels: they can improve skin tone and texture safely. You can expect your peel with us here at The G Spa to be safe, simple, and effective.
Let’s talk about results too. Peels deliver in this area as well. It can take a few weeks for patients to see the full results of their peel, but they’re usually pretty significant. A patient’s skin issues can be significantly reduced in appearance, and the skin may be left revitalized and vibrant.
Overall, a cleaner, more youthful look is achieved. The results of a lighter peel will last for several months, but deeper peels can last several years! Of course, results vary, but you can almost certainly expect them.
At The G Spa San Francisco, we use the SkinMedica line of peels.
Ideal for skin brightening and getting started with chemical peels. The Illuminize Peel is a very light peel with no downtime that is safe for all skin types, making it a great starter peel. Patients can expect healthier, brighter-looking skin post-treatment. Perfect for an upcoming event over the weekend. It can be repeated in 2 weeks for better results.
Ideal for those with pigment abnormalities, acne, photodamage, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Safe for most skin types, this chemical peel treatment is the next step above a Pumpkin/Pro-Retinol Peel and a Salicylic Acid resurfacing treatment — perfect for those wanting their first “chemical peel”, this peel goes deeper than the Illuminize peel. It addresses various skin conditions, helping to brighten, clarify and correct light pigment.
Moderate downtime is expected and can last from 5 to 7 days. This can be repeated in 4 weeks for better results. It is recommended to do a series of 3-6 treatments for optimal results.
Ideal for those with moderate to severe skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and texture. Rejuvenize Peel™ also addresses skin unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or pigmentary changes. It can be performed on patients with dark skin. However, patients with deeply pigmented skin color should receive Vitalize Peel® first, and after they establish tolerability to Vitalize Peel®, they can receive Rejuvenize Peel™. Moderate downtime is expected and can last from 7 to 10 days. This can be repeated in 4 weeks for better results. It is recommended to do a series of 3-6 treatments for optimal results.
