Gone are the days when chemical peels had to be painful and required a long recovery period. The peels available at Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care are designed to fit into your lifestyle, which is why we offer a variety of superficial and medium peels for all skin tones and types. Chemical peels literally peel away the top layer of skin, simultaneously kick-starting collagen production while removing superficial impurities like hyperpigmentation spots.
The lightest peels might not “peel” like you imagine, but can instead seem a little rough and flaky the first few days after the treatment. If you don’t peel, don’t worry. The chemical peel is still doing its thing. After all, you don’t need to be uncomfortable in order to achieve gorgeous results with peels. Here, Zuzana Likar trains every staff member to exceptional standards, so you can rest easy knowing you’re getting professional treatments that will lead to gorgeous results.
The Jan Marini Peel System is one of the most sought-after, and it is now available in-office. Jan Marini offers the Clarify, Refine, and Transform peel options, each of which is so gentle that multiple sessions are recommended for optimal results. This ensures that the peeling process won’t get in the way of your daily life. Every peel needs two steps and infuses the skin with a dose of retinol, peptides, acids, and antioxidants.
Jan Marini peels are all designed to take on some of the most common issues on the face, chest, hands, and neck. These peels are exclusively available at medical offices and can be used on every skin tone and type. There are also Jan Marini peels designed exclusively for melanin-rich clients. In the past, those with darker skin tones were often not a good match for peels since hypopigmentation (skin lightening) could occur. However, today’s best peels are gentler and accessible to all.
VI Peels are a gold standard in the world of chemical peels, and we offer the VI Original, VI Peel Purify Precision, VI Peel Precision Plus, and VI Peel Advanced. These peels are a great choice for those wishing to treat acne, acne-related issues like scarring and darkening, and even the most stubborn form of hyperpigmentation—melasma. Similar to the Jan Marini peels, these peels are suitable for many skin tones and types so that you have a choice when it comes to peeling your best.
There is also the SkinMedica Peel System. It is part of the SkinMedica family, one of the best medical-grade skin care lines available. We have the SkinMedica Illuminize, Rejuvenize, and Vitalize peels. They vary in strength so that customization can be achieved. Whether you’re looking for a light peel or a more aggressive option, SkinMedica gives you options.
What Peels Do
Depending on the peel, a chemical peel can treat a variety of conditions. They can reduce pore size and overall redness (including from rosacea), reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimize dark spots and hyperpigmentation, help with scarring, and even aid in active acne. If you simply want tighter, brighter, more youthful skin, a chemical peel can help with that, too.
You can also apply many chemical peels just about anywhere, although of course the most popular areas are the face, neck, chest, and tops of the hands. Chemical peels are a great option because you can see them working and they can target the entirety of the skin. Unlike more precise procedures, such as Botox injections, chemical peels take on the quality of the skin as a whole. You can tone, tighten, and brighten large areas with little to no downtime (depending on the peel you choose).
