Glycolic Peel

Glycolic is a natural alpha hydroxy acid derived from sugar cane and is the most popular and lightest category of chemical peels. It gently exfoliates dead cells on the surface of the skin, promoting collagen remodeling, thus improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other forms of sun damage. Research has indicated that glycolic can help patients with acne and rosacea. Several sessions will gradually increase the natural beauty and glow of your skin.

The peel can range from gentle to strong depending on the % glycolic used. Here at Sky Med Spa we offer 35%, 50% and 70%. There may be some mild stinging during the treatment, and some people experience a mild peeling.


Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid and is a more vigorous peel than the glycolic peel. This peel is recommended for blemished, thick or oily skin. You may experience a mild frosting and stinging during the treatment and slight peeling over the next few days. It is gentle enough to use every two weeks for a series, to achieve maximum benefits.


Jessner’s Peel

The Jessner peel effectively treats acne scarring, skin discoloration, moderate wrinkling, and sun damage. It is a medium strength peel which consists of a combination of different peeling agents. These agents penetrate deeper into the skin and result in greater exfoliation of the outer skin layers. This peel is lighter than other medium peel agents such as TCA, and is therefore usable in the younger, less sun damaged person.

Following the procedure, a slight burning sensation may be noticed. Your skin will develop a light frost and red sunburn appearance 2-3 days after the application. Facial peeling occurs approximately 3-4 days following the application. This procedure has a short recovery time of about 5-7 days.
