Deseret Aesthetics offers Medical Grade Chemical peels as quick and convenient ways to enhance appearance and get a healthy glow with little or no downtime. Chemical Peels have been used for decades to revitalize and resurface skin. They involve applying a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of skin and reveal a younger, clearer, more radiant complexion. Chemical peels, also known as “Lunchtime Peels” are traditionally performed on the face, hands, neck, back and shoulders, legs and other problem areas to treat fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and skin discoloration. At Deseret Aesthetics we utilize PCA peels. We customize each facial for the specific patient’s needs.
Our Perfect Peel is the future of skin rejuvenation. The Perfect Peel founds itself on a key anti-aging ingredient never before used in a peel: Glutathione. Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant known penetrate deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-aging answer to premature wrinkling. It is proven to reverse the melanin’s metabolism turning dark pigmentations into light pigmentation. It can be used on ALL skin types and a series of 3 treatments is recommended to improve numerous skin conditions including melasma and acne.
The Obagi Blue Peel Radiance is a gentle yet effective treatment for a range of skin types. This peel is a salicylic acid based peel that provides superficial exfoliation with little to no downtime. A series of 4-6 treatments is recommended for best results to improve photodamage, skin resurfacing and overall improvement in texture and tone.
The Oxy Trio Facial is a antioxidant treatment that corrects and prevents free radical damage, as oxidative and environmental stress is one of the more significant contributors to the aging process. This three-step treatment helps stimulate cutaneous oxygenation and circulation, rejuvenating sluggish, stressed skin as it draws oxygen to the skin’s surface, resulting in radiant, healthy skin.
Most Commonly Asked Questions
Q. How much downtime is expected with a peel?
A.There is no downtime whatsoever with Physician’s Choice™ chemical peels. You can actually receive a peel on your lunch hour and return to work.
Q.When will I start “peelings”, for how long and how much?
A. Everyone’s experience will be different. However, on an average, you will see flaking by day two or three following the treatment. It is possible to see flaking for up to five or six days. With all Physician’s Choice™ peels, only light to medium exfoliation will be experienced.
Q. How irritating is a peel?
A. PCA peels are only slightly irritating. You may experience mild burning or stinging, which is transient.
Q. What peels can be used on someone who frequently works out?
A. Someone who frequently works out can have any peel but must wait 48 hours after the treatment to exercise.
Q. My skin is very thin. Why would I want to peel? Wouldn’t that make my skin thinner?
A. If your skin is dry and thin, often there is a buildup of dead cells that actually keeps your home care products from penetrating. Having an Ultra Peel™ treatment will remove the surface buildup, hydrate the skin and give it a more plump, “thicker” appearance. The use of Vitamin C products in the treatment, as well as in your home care program, will help to build the collagen in your skin, thus making it stronger and more durable.
Q. Can pregnant or lactating women receive a peel?
Q. What is the difference between PCA and glycolic peels?
A. Glycolic acid will dehydrate skin and make pores larger after extended use. PCA uses lactic and citric acids which are skin- friendly because they are natural constituents of your skin. Physician’s Choice™ peels are unique because they are moisturizing and hydrating and leave your skin fresh, soft and supple, the way it wants to be!
