Chemical exfoliation dates as far back as the Egyptians, where Cleopatra used sour milk baths to rejuvenate her skin. Sour milk is equivalent to modern day lactic acid, which is a gentle exfoliating peel for the skin.
Chemical peels are one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of the skin. A chemical solution is used to remove the dead and damaged outer layers of the skin to reveal the smoother healthier skin that lies underneath.
Studies indicate that the epidermal turnover rate slows from 30-50% between our thirties and eighties. This means that it can take 30 days or more for your skin to naturally rejuvenate itself after the age of 30. Chemical peels speed this process up to reveal healthier looking skin, and can be used as a maintenance program to encourage a youthful and radiant look. They can also be used in conjunction with BBL fotofacials or Dermapen to enhance the effectiveness of the treatments.*
Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin looking rough, uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. Chemical peels can help improve all of these conditions.
VitaNovu offers several types of chemical peels depending on your skin type and concerns. Price ranges from $80-$500.
Chemical peels do not address more advanced skin conditions such as deep facial lines, loose or sagging skin, broken capillaries, or deep scars. However, VitaNovu has other methods of treating these conditions! Click here for more details or call us today for a complimentary skin consult!
