Although a procedure called a “chemical peel” may sound harsh and even risky, the so-called chemicals used to rejuvenate damaged skin are actually gentle, moisturizing exfoliation solutions that safely remove dead skin cells to reveal fresh, healthy skin. Chemical peels are performed by The Naked Face Medspa LLC., for the purpose of reducing the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, age spots, other types of mild scarring and discolorations. Even if you don’t suffer from specific skin damage, a chemical peel will dramatically improve the overall health of your skin by deep cleaning and exfoliating accumulations of skin debris resulting from aging, sun exposure and common air pollutants.
How a Chemical Peel Works
By applying acids that are conducive to skin rejuvenation such as lactic, glycolic, carbolic or salicylic acid, practitioners are able to minimally “injure” targeted skin layers which encourages the skin to begin healing itself. This creates the formation of new skin cells that improves the texture and color of skin that previously suffered from superficial damage. In addition, exfoliation of the skin stimulates collagen production and rapid growth of the epidermis in order to distribute melanin more evenly. Melanin re-distribution is important for skin that is suffering from discoloration due to hormone fluctuations and sun exposure.

VI Peel™ with Precision Peel
The Precision Peel is made from the same synergistic blend of ingredients as the VI Peel, but at a higher concentration, for a peel that is about 25% stronger than a VI Peel. The Precision Peel is an excellent addition for treating stubborn hyper pigmentation including melasma, actinic keratosis and age spots on hands, arms or chest. The Precision Peel is to be used in conjunction with the VI Peel.
With all levels of chemical peels, patients will need to keep skin out of sunlight. After healing has significantly progressed, you are still required to protect skin from UV rays by wearing sunscreen and limiting time spent in the sun. The new skin growth occurring as dead skin cells are shed and collagen production increases is vulnerable to being discolored or damaged from sunlight.
