FAQs - Medical Grade Peels

What is a peel and how does it benefit my skin?
A peel is the process of applying a high concentration of glycolic acid to the skin for a few minutes, and then neutralizing it with a solution. You may experience a tingling sensation, slight stinging and mild redness that may last for several minutes. The immediate result is softer, smoother skin. A series of peels, used over weeks or months, along with a daily skin care regimen, sloughs away the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresher, healthier looking skin.

How soon will I notice results? How long does the program last?
You will feel an improvement in the softness of your skin in as little as 1 week. As the treatment progresses, you will notice a difference in the overall appearance of your skin. The peel program generally consists of a series of peels given every 2 weeks. The length of the program and frequency of visits, however, will be determined by you and the medical professionals at Avissa Skin+Body. The at-home regimen provides daily exfoliation and maximizes the benefits of your peels. Keep in mind that it will take several months of treatment before you see the optimal skin rejuvenation benefits.

Are the at-home skin care products effective without the peels?
Yes, the at-home skincare products can be effective without the peels. Keep in mind, though, that using the at-home products together with a peel regimen will deliver the best results at a much quicker rate.

Who is a candidate for the glycolic acid peel?
During the consultation, your medical history will be reviewed and you will be prescribed the treatment that best meets your needs. Let us know if you have experienced any of the following: active herpes simplex (cold sores), psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, recent surgeries, a bad sunburn, hypertrophic or keloidal scarring or used Accutane. It’s also important to tell us if you sunbathe, use a sun-tanning booth, smoke, are pregnant or nursing, or are a vegetarian.

Can men or younger adults benefit from glycolic acid peels?
Yes! Glytone peels provide the same exfoliation benefits for men as for women, including helping to slough away dead skin cells to reveal healthier skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Glycolic acid also helps minimize razor bumps. For teens with acne-prone skin, Glytone peels help eliminate oil and reduce the further breakout of acne.

How are Glytone products different from the products available at department stores?
Glytone products are available only through a physician. Glytone products use elevated levels of glycolic acid to provide maximum rejuvanation benefits. Store brands neutralize or chemically alter their products to the point where the acid is no longer effective for skin rejuvenation. Glytone products contain levels of glycolic acid that have been shown to promote collagen production. Glytone is a powerful program that is only available with professional guidance.

Are chemical peels safe?
Yes.  Dermatologist have been performing chemical peels for more than 50 years with an excellent safety record.

Is there downtime?
Depending upon which solution we agree upon, there can be absolutely no downtime!  For someone looking for a brightening glow for the weekend, a light, refreshing peel is perfect!

Is it painful?
People typically find getting a chemical peel quite relaxing.  Imagine laying down, eyes closed and having your face attended to and pampered.  There is some minimal discomfort when the solution is applied, but this typically only lasts for a few minutes.
