How facial peels can shed years off your skin

September 25, 2018

The term “chemical facial peel” may make your skin tingle, and not in a good way! But despite some outdated misconceptions, chemical peeling facials are a gentle, quick, easy, and highly effective dermatology go-to! All chemical facial peels involve applying a solution to your face to speed up exfoliation and cell turnover, leaving your skin looking and feeling vastly improved.


A peeling facial can improve skin clarity, tone, and texture, stimulate new collagen and healthy skin cell growth for a radiant complexion, reduce sun damage and hyperpigmentation, clear up breakouts, smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, hydrate your skin, and address skin imperfections and superficial scars. On top of all that, peels work fast. Although your results get better with each treatment, you’ll likely see results after just one! After treatment, your skin may temporarily appear red or flushed, but will typically subside within just an hour.

Depending on your skin type, skin concerns, and the outcome you’re hoping to achieve, clinical dermatologist Dr. Mulholland will recommend the chemical facial peel that works best for you.


Our SpaMedica specialties include:


The SilkPeel facial


Created with sensitive skin in mind, the SilkPeel facial device uses a gentle wet abrasion technique on the outer layers of your skin to get rid of dead skin cells and oil. The device’s controlled vacuum pressure pulls skin debris into its chamber. The deeper layers of your skin are accessed and infused with vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. Sun damaged skin, fine lines, wrinkles, textural irregularities, enlarged pores, and acne scarring will all appear improved post SilkPeel facial. To maximize results, opt for a monthly SilkPeel facial treatment.


Crystal Peel


Crystal Peel Microdermabrasion uses a high-speed diamond-tipped machine that safely and gently removes dead skin. A Crystal Peel can be performed every two to four weeks for best results. Many patients that get Crystal Peel facials see dramatic improvements in oily or dull skin, enlarged or clogged pores, fine lines, uneven pigmentation, poor skin texture, and mild acne scars. Results are typically seen after the first treatment but improve more each time.


SonoPeel Microdermabrasion


The SonoPeel treatment and device were created by SpaMedica’s own Dr. Stephen Mulholland. Using gentle ultrasound waves to micro-abrade and smooth your skin’s surface, the SonoPeel microdermabrasion device lifts off the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing a softer, younger you! This treatment is excellent for fine lines and wrinkles, textural irregularities, sunspots, acne scarring, and more. SonoPeel Microdermabrasion can be performed once a month.
