beautify your skin with AlumierMD Chemical Peels

When it comes to achieving glowing, youthful skin, many turn to chemical peels. These treatments can be incredibly effective, but there's a big difference between professional chemical peels and at-home treatments. Understanding these differences can help you choose the best option for your skin type and colour. 

Let’s discover what works best for you!

Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother, less wrinkled, and may have fewer signs of damage.

Professional Chemical Peels

Professional chemical peels are performed by Nina Sharma, Laser and Skin Care Specialist and offer a range of benefits that at-home treatments simply can't match. Here’s why:

  1. Customized Treatment: We assess your skin type and concerns in the initial skin coaching consultation to tailor the treatment. This customization ensures optimal results and minimizes risks.

  2. Stronger Formulas: Professional peels use stronger acids, such as trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or phenol, which penetrate deeper into the skin for more dramatic results.

  3. Expert Supervision: With a skin care specialist, you have the advantage of their expertise to handle any complications and to achieve a safe and effective peel.

What Works for Different Skin Types?

  • Sensitive Skin: Milder acids like lactic acid, which gently exfoliate without causing irritation are good for sensitive skin.

  • Oily or Acne-Prone Skin: Salicylic acid peels are a popular choice, as they penetrate oil-laden follicles and help clear out acne.

  • Hyperpigmentation: For those with dark spots or melasma, glycolic acid or TCA peels can significantly improve skin tone and texture.

  • Dark Skin Tones: Professionals are particularly skilled at treating darker skin tones, carefully selecting peels to avoid post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

AlumierMD Chemical Peels are Professional medical grade

At Laser Skin Pro we work with AlumierMD medical grade chemical peels and offer the following: 

ALUMIERMD BHA 20 PEEL​ (Acne, Congestion)

Detox Clear contains salicylic acid and lactic acid for excellent pore penetration and exfoliation. Salicylic acid penetrates into the pore and exfoliates dead skin cells and excess sebum. Lactic acid exfoliates dead skin cells and hydrates. Eucalyptus provides strong astringent properties.

Together, they work to smooth skin, minimize pore size experience, reduce acne and prevent new pimples from forming.

ALUMIERMD GLOW PEEL​ (Dry, Normal, Oily, Dehydrated, Acne, Hyperpigmentation & Aging)

The Glow Peel is a multipurpose resurfacing treatment that combines the powers of salicylic acid (7%), lactic acid (7%), resorcinol (7%), soy amino acids, and yeast-derived oligopeptide to improve the signs of aging and hyperpigmentation with less downtime.

We typically suggest this treatment to people who want to address issues like hyperpigmentation, fine lines, exfoliation, and overall rejuvenation.

ALUMIERMD RENEW 30 PEEL​ (Hyperpigmentation, Uneven Skin Tone, Dull Skin, Line & Wrinkles)

Radiant 30 is an alpha hydroxy acid resurfacing peel containing lactic acid to exfoliate dead skin cells. Boost cell turnover and stimulate collagen, improving skin texture and tone. This multifunctional peel targets multiple skin conditions, including fine lines and wrinkles, discolouration, sun damage and large pores.

A great choice for first-timers or clients with sensitive skin.

At-Home Chemical Peels

Convenience and Cost-Effectiveness - At-home chemical peels are a popular choice for those seeking convenience and affordability. These treatments use milder acids, like glycolic acid or alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), and are available in lower concentrations.

Choosing the Right Peel for You

Skin Type and Concerns - Understanding your skin type and specific concerns is crucial. A consultation with a dermatologist can provide valuable insights, even if you plan to use at-home treatments.

Patch Testing - Always perform a patch test before using a new peel to ensure you don’t have an adverse reaction. This is especially important for at-home treatments where professional supervision isn’t available.

Final Thoughts

Whether you opt for a professional chemical peel or an at-home treatment, the key to radiant skin lies in choosing the right product for your skin type and colour. Professional treatments offer personalized care and potent results, while at-home peels provide convenience and cost savings. With the right approach, you can achieve that glowing, rejuvenated skin you've always dreamed of!

Remember, consistency and proper aftercare are essential to maintaining the benefits of any chemical peel. Hydrate, protect with sunscreen, and enjoy the journey to beautiful, healthy skin.
