Key Factors for Dermabrasion Exfoliation

Benefits of Chemical Peels

Chemical PeelsWhen it comes to skin care most people cleanse, moisturize, and apply sunscreen. However, a the step that is often overlooked is proper exfoliation with Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion.  Without this step the skin can take on a dry, dull lifeless look.  Also, when dead skin cells combine with excess oil this can plug up the skin and lead to acne breakouts.

So what is exfoliation?  Exfoliation is the process of removing the dead cells either chemically or manually from the skin’s surface. Every 30 days the body sloughs off the dead outer layer called the stratum corneum but many times not all of the dead skin comes off.   At Theresa’s Face and Body in Cape Coral, chemical peels such as glycolic peels, lactic acid peels and microdermabrasion treatments are performed to thoroughly exfoliate the skin to improve texture, clarity and regenerate skin cells.

At our Cape Coral spa the 30 % glycolic peel derived from sugar cane improves the appearance of blemished, non-sensitive and normal to oily skin types.  Glycolic chemical peels work to refine the surface of the skin lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promote the renewal of cells.  Cell renewal is key to help build collagen vital to the support of the skin.   A glycolic chemical peel also works to improve overall clarity while inhibiting the growth of bacteria which can lead to acne.

For those coping with dry, fragile skin with fine lines and wrinkles, the chemical peel that would provide the most benefit would be the lactic acid peel.  This chemical peel derived from sour milk offers gentle exfoliation and is an excellent choice for those with hyperpigmentation.  This peel works for skin of all colors and types.

At Theresa’s Face and Body we also offer microdermabrasion, a manual form of exfoliation.  This treatment benefits those with hyperpigmentation whose skin is sensitive to chemical peels.  Microdermabrasion gently buffs away hyperpigmentation and dead skin dead skin cells and reveals fresh, clearer skin.
