Chemical Peels are popular treatments used in dermatology and cosmetic clinics due to their ability to effectively treat a wide range of skin conditions and concerns. Clients are typically started off on a lower percent peel and worked up while skin tolerance builds. An initial consultation and two weeks of pre-treatment using an AHA kit (available at Elysian for $25) or experience with AHA's is required prior to the first peel appointment. A series of peels may be recommended for best results.
A perfect introductory or sensitive skin peel! A 30% 3.0PH lactic or lactic-glycolic alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) exfoliator gel infused with ginseng root, orange peel oil and chamomile extracts, is applied to the skin, followed by a cooled gel serum. The powerful extracts help to heal and re-balance the skin, while the AHA's breaks down the bonds between dead skin cells, exfoliating them off, reducing fine lines and pores, dislodging comedones (whiteheads/blackheads), and reducing hyperpigmenation.

Jessner, Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and 20% Salicylic acid peels are self-neutralizing peels and are superficial to medium-depth peels. Typically these peels are available to those who have experienced AHA treatments, and are looking for a more advanced peel to target moderate skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, superficial acne scarring, textured skin etc, in fewer treatments than a AHA Peel. The peel chosen will be based completely on individual skin type and targeted concerns.
Jessner peels are formulated with salicylic acid, lactic acid and resorcinol. The use of light peeling agents like the lactic and salicylic acid, in combination with the more aggressive one, resorcinol, produces very desired results when it comes to treating moderate skin concerns like photoaging, age spots, acne, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, epidermal melasma and freckles. Mild-moderate peeling can be experienced after 1-2 days, and downtime can range from 3-7 days.
TCA peels are medium-depth peels and can treat moderate photoaging, actinic keratosis, blotchy hyperpigmentation, epidermal melasma, mild to medium wrinkles and superficial acne scars. Commonly used as" spot" treatments for lines between the brows, around the mouth and orbital bone of the eyes, this type of peel is very effective and efficient for anti-aging. Like the Jessner, mild-moderate peeling can be experienced after 1-2 days, and downtime is typically between 3-7 days.
20% Salicylic Acid can be applied as a spot treatment. A drop of the solution is placed on active and/or stubborn comedone to dry out and deeply exfoliate the infected, clogged pore. This peel solution is also perfect for back acne where pimples are harder to treat due to inability to reach them. Starting at $20 per area treated (discussed during consultation and treatment).
