Medical Grade Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are an ideal way to treat skincare concerns such as pigmentation, uneven skin tone, acne and acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles and more. Aponi Aesthetics offers various levels of peels depending on the condition you wish to treat. All new patients consult with one of our skin care professionals to determine which level peel is appropriate for not only for your skincare concern, but also for your lifestyle.

What to expect during the treatment (peels may vary):
Skin will be thoroughly cleansed and prepped to remove oils and dead surface cells. Oils can prevent the peels from penetrating the skin and reduce the overall results. Lips and mucus membranes are then protected with Aquaphor. The actual peeling solution is applied to the area, in some cases, multiple passes of the acids will be conducted. During this process, the patient can hold a fan to their skin if they are uncomfortable. Some may experience a slight tingling feeling. An SPF will be applied to the area treated post op. We recommend wearing a sunscreen and moisturizer throughout the day everyday for at least a week. Patients will experience a slight tightness for the first 24-48 hours. Skin may be red, warm and possibly itchy for the first 24 hours.
Post Peel Care:
While skin is peeling, we recommend no picking or peeling dead skin. This could lead to permanent scarring and pigmentation. Some of the peels come with an at home skin care kit that is used while skin is peeling. Gentle facial cleansers are recommended; and no scrubs, exfoliants or loofahs should be used. Sun exposure should be avoided for at least one week and sunscreen is important every day to maintain results.
