Peels Columiba, SC


Consider a Chemical Peel if:

  • If you have superficial wrinkles of the face, neck, upper chest, arms and hands

  • If you have deeper facial wrinkling

  • If you have uneven pigmentation problems caused by sun exposure, prescription drugs, or disease

  • If you have enlarged facial pores

  • If you have superficial acne scars of the face

  • If you have”age spots” on your face, upper chest, and/or arms and hands

During your consultation, Danielle Malatek, APRN will advise you whether you will achieve the results you desire with a light, moderate, or deep chemical peel. You will return home with specific written instructions on aftercare. After light peels, the treated skin turns red or pink and heals without crusting. Following moderate or deep peels, a superficial crust usually forms and peels off 3 to 7 days later (like a sunburn blister)–revealing a healthier skin surface that is smoother. The skin redness, after deeper peels, fades in a month or two.

TCA and Jessner Peels: A moderate-deep peel

A TCA or Jessner Chemical Skin Peel will enhance your appearance. Your skin will be smoother and more youthful and the color will be more uniform.  This peel is usually best for lighter skin tones to avoid scarring.

Glycolic Acid Peel: A light chemical peel

A glycolic acid peel treatment is a specific technique for skin renewal. During this process, a high concentration of GCA is applied to the skin for a short period of time and then chemically neutralized to end the treatment. This procedure rapidly removes the damaged layer of surface skin cells revealing fresh skin, and stimulating cell rebuilding and restructuring of deeper skin layers. This procedure can help the skin appear smoother, healthier, plumper and tighter, with more even pigmentation.  This peel is safe for those breastfeeding and can be used on some darker skin tones without as much of a risk of discoloration.
