Revitalize Your Skin with a Chemical Peel from Tru Glō Medspa
As the outer covering of your body and first line of its defense, your skin is exposed to innumerable environmental stressors. From the sun’s ultraviolet rays to air- and water-borne pollutants, and from nicks, cuts, and bruises to bug bites, your skin is under assault on a daily basis! Time also makes its mark on your skin with the slow increase in fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, age spots, and other indicators of advancing years.
These visible signs of aging and skin damage would be far more noticeable if our skin didn’t naturally revitalize itself through the constant shedding and renewal of the outermost layer of skin cells. In fact, your body replaces about 30,000 to 40,000 skin cells every day-- a replacement process that helps repair damaged skin and hinders visible signs of aging.
Skincare professionals can replicate and significantly enhance this natural renewal of skin cells with chemical peels. In fact, Naples, Florida’s Tru Glō Medspa believes chemical peel treatments are a core component of any comprehensive skin care regimen, and that they offer one of the best means of revitalizing skin on the face, neck, and hands.
Benefits of Tru Glō Medspa Chemical Peel Treatments
Chemical peels rely on an acidic solution to exfoliate the outermost layer of skin cells, which peels off within a few days or a week of treatment, depending upon the peel solution type used. Many imperfections tend to be fall away with the exfoliation action and new skin cells are typically fresher looking with fewer visible signs of skin damage and aging. Among skin conditions chemical peels can help alleviate are:
- Fine Lines
- Sun Damage
- Age Spots
- Enlarged Pores
- Crow’s Feet
- Acne Scars
- Uneven Skin Tone
Along with correcting existing skin conditions, chemical peel treatments may help stave off the emergence of new imperfections or otherwise slow degeneration caused by time and environmental factors. For maximum effectiveness, you should always diligently follow all post-treatment skin care directions provided by your skincare professional.
Types of Chemical Peels Offered by Tru Glō Medspa
Naples-based Tru Glō Medspa offers clients three basic types of chemical peel treatments designed to address the full range of skin conditions according to existing damage and to meet the specific aesthetic desires of the client. The three basic types of peels can be further tailored to account for different skin types. The three basic types of chemical peel treatments are:
- Light Peel—Also known as the “superficial” and “lunchtime” peel, the light peel only penetrates and exfoliates the thin top layer of skin. This refreshing peel relies on mild formulations of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to gently improve mild skin conditions and reduce signs of dry skin, fine lines, acne, and blotchiness. Light peels result in minimal discomfort and downtime, with clients typically displaying renewed skin within a few days.
- Medium Peel—Medium peel treatments at Tru Glō Medspa also utilize AHAs, though in stronger formulations that penetrate deeper into the skin. Medium peels can help correct skin conditions such as scarring, wrinkles, acne, uneven pigmentation, and some other moderate imperfections. As with light peels, medium peels do not cause excessive discomfort, though you may need a bit of downtime. Peeling and swelling can persist for several days, and it may take at least a week or more for you to be completely comfortable with your rejuvenated skin.
- Deep Peel—Deep chemical peels can treat the full range of skin damage with results lasting up to 10 years. Deep peels can cause discomfort during and after the procedure, but Tru Glō Medspa strives to provide options and treatment to best alleviate discomfort and promote healing. Recovery from a deep peel and emergence of your new skin can take from two to three weeks, as this type of peel yields the most dramatic results.
