So What, Exactly, is a Chemical Peel, and Do I Need One?

You might have heard the words Chemical Peel before, but what does that really mean?

It sounds so intense and harsh, but let’s take a look at exactly what it is, and if you might benefit from getting one.

Chemical peels are great for reversing the effects of damage to the skin. They remove dull cells to illuminate your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, clogged pores, and blemishes. And, they boost collagen in your skin for a firmer look. From enzyme peels to high-level AHA/BHA chemical exfoliators, they can be customized to be more aggressive or gentler, based on your skin’s needs.

Here’s the key to chemical peels, though: they work deep to heal your skin, and sometimes peels don’t really even use chemicals. When you hear the words “chemical peel” don’t think “harsh, destructive chemicals.” Think, “re-set for your skin.” Whatever your skin’s problems are- from wrinkles, to hyperpigmentation, to acne, our Image Skincare Image Lift Facials (aka. peels) use natural, clinically-developed essences that get deep into your skin and build healthier, more radiant skin down to the deepest level of your cells.

Beautiful skin is healthy skin, and sometimes skin needs a re-set to get healthy. Our estheticians use Image Skincare’s scientifically-developed peels and serums for each chemical peel (also called Image Lift Facials) to give you the best results for your unique skin.

Here are the different peels we offer at Facelogic Upland:

Lightening Lift

This chemical peel combines innovative botanical brighteners and Echinacea. It uses plant-derived stem cells and anti-aging peptides for younger-looking, glowing skin. This Image Lift Facial is great for uneven complexions and those with tired-looking skin.

Wrinkle Lift

This chemical peel resurfaces skin with its blend of glycolic acid and retinol. It leaves skin smoother, firmer, and younger-looking by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. With Buddleja stem cells to reduce inflammation and diminish photo-aging, botanical coffee and peppermint to energize skin, and eucalyptus and ylang ylang to purify the skin, this Image Lift Facial is perfect for anti-aging. 

Acne Lift

This chemical peel is a powerful blend of alpha and beta hydroxyl acids with plant-derived stem cells and botanical lighteners to reduce blemishes and redness and diminish post-breakout dark spots. It detoxifies the skin with ylang ylang and eucalyptus and detoxifies and oxygenates oily skin, helping to treat and heal acne blemishes. This Image Lift Facial is great for anyone struggling with acne, including teens.

Beta Lift

This chemical peel is a salicylic acid treatment that targets and improves moderate and severe acne. It is a powerful non-blended formula that works quickly and effectively on even the most blemished faces. This Image Lift Facial is great for those with severe acne.

Perfection Lift

This chemical peel is a concentrated blend of lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol to work together to reduce the appearance of advanced aging, pigmentation, and acne. It is an extra-strength treatment that reveals younger skin in even just one treatment. This Image Lift Facial is great for those with deep signs of aging, acne, or hyperpigmentation.

Beyond Chemical Peels

In addition to chemical peels, there are also two other kinds of peels available that will re-set your skin and provide amazing results: oxygen peels and enzyme peels.

Oxygen Peels

Oxygen peels are great for developing a healthy, radiant complexion. They clarify clogged pores, support collagen production, and brighten dullness. We offer an O2 Lift Peel, which is great for an instant, visible boost of vigor and glow to your skin.

O2 Lift Treatment

This oxygen peel infuses oxygen, plant-derived stem cells, peptides, and a high concentration of enzymatic botanicals into the skin, leaving it luminous, refreshed, and rejuvenated.

Enzyme Peels

Enzyme peels work in two ways to reverse the signs of damage on skin – they power away dull, dead cells to illuminate the skin, and they reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, clogged pores, and blemishes. Then, they support collage for a firmer-looking face over time. We offer two enzyme peels: the Ormedic Lift and The Signature Facelift.

Ormedic Lift

This enzyme peel is a blend of pumpkin, pineapple, papaya, and mango fruit enzymes and peptides in an organic aloe vera gel base. This enzyme peel is a non-chemical peel, which rebalances, regenerates and restores skin while comfrey plant-derived stem cell technology recharges your skin’s stem cells, helping to maintain youthfulness of skin.

The Signature Facelift

Our signature, results-driven treatment combines Vitamin C, hydroxyl acids, and enzymes to speed up cellular renewal. New technology of centella stem cells support redness-prone skin and botanical detoxifying and energizing complexes give noticeable results in just one session.
