As we age, dermal collagen and elastin content tend to gradually decline. When the aging process is combined with sun exposure, this decline can lead to significant sagging, uneven pigmentation, and the appearance of unpleasant blemishes.
RKM Aesthetics & Wellness offers specialized skincare solutions in the form of chemical peels and skincare products that both beautify and confidence. Our chemical peel treatment options individualized and made to deliver radiant results without downtime.
Types of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are specialty skincare treatments that involve the application of mild acids to the skin. The most common chemical peels, such as those containing glycolic, trichloroacetic, salicylic, lactic, and carbolic acid (phenol) are safe for the skin and act as stimulating exfoliating agents. RKM chemical peels come in two varieties, each formulated to meet your specific skin care needs.
This chemical peel usually consists of an Alpha-hydroxy acid solution or a similar mild acid. The acid concentration in this treatment is designed to gently exfoliate the outer layer of your skin. This treatment is good for basic skin discolorations from sun damage and rough skin areas such as those caused by acne scarring.
Our medium peels are made of glycolic or trichloroacetic acid. This chemical peel is applied to penetrate the outer and middle layers of skin in order to get rid of damaged skin cells. The medium peel is an excellent choice for treating age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, and moderate superficial discoloration.
Treatment with Chemical Peels
Most chemical peels generally take 15-30 minutes to apply. However, this time may vary depending upon your individual skincare needs. During a chemical peel, most people feel a slight burning and stinging sensation. This feeling usually lasts about 5-10 minutes. In addition to these treatments, we also offer various skincare products to help nourish your skin.
Results of Chemical Peels
Depending on the type of chemical peel, a reaction similar to sunburn can occur after the procedure. This is accompanied by redness and scaling that typically lasts for 3-7 days. Our lunchtime peel can be done quickly and provides a nice radiance and glow to your skin with zero downtime. Our medium peel may result in some mild swelling, redness, and sensitivity. Afterward, your skin will peel over a period of a few days. During this time, you’ll need to avoid direct sunlight since your new skin will be fragile and prone to irritation.
