When it comes to rejuvenating yourself, an easy place to begin with is your skin, and this is the prime season to start. The low humidity, cold winds, hot artificial heat, and sometimes a lack of fresh fruits, vegetables, and sun during winter tend to deplete the skin of its natural moisture. “The skin can appear dull and lifeless,” says Michelle Giamberdino, Owner of Face Fitness Skin Care, “peels are a great way to reveal fresh, rejuvenated skin.”
The concept of resurfacing the skin dates as far back as ancient times. In fact, it has been reported that Cleopatra routinely bathed in sour goat's milk to help beautify her skin. Unbeknownst to her, the lactic acid contained in the milk was the active ingredient providing her with a rejuvenating peel.
There are three levels of chemical peels—light, medium, and deep. Light chemical peels are ideal for people who do not want to spend any time in recovery, but want to address fine lines, areas of dryness, acne, and uneven pigmentation. Deep peel procedures take longer and require the longest recovery time. However, a deep peel gives patients the most dramatic, longest-lasting results as the new cells formed during healing produce tighter, more youthful-looking skin.
Face Fitness Skin Care recommends Lactic Acid peels for dry, sensitive or mature skin, and Mandelic Acid peels for combination skin, acne, and unwanted pigmentation. Both are very mild with no downtime. They also offer a TCA Peel that is stronger and may leave visible peeling and slight redness, with more dramatic results reached within 8-10 days.
The estheticians at Face Fitness Skin Care can recommend the perfect peel to help renew and reveal fresh, revitalized skin.
