The Science of Chemical Peels
What is AlumierMD’s peel philosophy?
We offer a selection of superficial to medium depth peels known for their excellent results and safety profile. We believe in repeated treatments for progressive and gradual results, and to avoid the side effects and downtime associated with deeper peels. Chemical peels should be performed by a trained skin care professional in a clinical setting so that they are delivered safely and effectively.
When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin. To be sure that the body doesn’t react to this deep exfoliation as it would to trauma, which can lead to pigment changes, exfoliation must be introduced gradually giving the skin time to adjust.
Victoria will complete a thorough skin analysis and recommend an individualized treatment program to address your skin concerns. She will create a personalized program that combines professional treatments with home care products since they work synergistically to improve the health and beauty of skin.
Pre-treatment products precondition the skin, accelerate results and minimize complications.
Post-treatment products minimize complications, soothe the skin and then maintain the results. Professional treatments enhance the results of your home care products.
Why should beneficial ingredients be applied post-peel and not within the peel solution?
Most beneficial ingredients for the skin tend to degrade or denature when placed in the low pH of chemical peel formulas. With that scientific information in mind, AlumierMD peels use only the pure acids; anti-aging, antioxidant and brightening booster ingredients are applied post-peel in our Brightening Accelerator keeping all components effective.
Peels remove the outer dead layers of the stratum corneum, so the booster ingredients are better absorbed when applied post-peel. Our multilayer process can be customized by your skin care professional according to your skin profile and concerns.
Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate
effect of bright and radiant skin. However, more significant results in treating textural issues,
fine lines and inflamed acne take time.
