In many patients, the primary problem is an overabundance of fatty tissue underneath the skin, which can be addressed with weight loss either from dieting, exercising, or in more severe cases weight loss surgery. But when it comes to a substantial weight loss journey, the unsightly presence of the excess skin seems to be quite…

CHEMICAL PEELS: A VARIETY TO CHOOSE FROM
la Belle vie Chemical Peels
MICROPEELS—FEELS LIKE A FACIAL BUT WITH SIGNIFICANTLY MORE BENEFITS TO YOUR SKIN!
Micropeels, a.k.a. “lunch-time peels,” are quick, easy, and typically where you begin your skin care regimen. There’s NO downtime and NO peeling with a micropeel for two reasons.
- We start with a manual exfoliation [either dermaplane or scrub] depending on your skin’s needs.
- Micropeels penetrate only the epidermis [top layer of the skin], so they’re very gentle. They are not intended to make your skin peel, which is the beauty of a micropeel. You can have this treatment & immediately go back to your routine [work, makeup, life]. While they are safe to have every 2 weeks if you are looking for a fast result or if preparing your skin for a more aggressive treatment [lasers or microneedling], a typical schedule is to repeat this treatment every 4-6 weeks, which mimics your skin’s natural cell turnover rate. These can be done year-round.
Benefits to the skin include improved tone, texture, & hydration; elasticity & collagen production; and reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, & lightened pigment.
Professional products are strongly suggested prior to beginning this regimen for the best results.
MEDIUM DEPTH PEELS:
Medium-to-deep depth peels are stronger peels that have the potential to cause peeling of the skin for up to 10-12 days depending on your skin type. These peels take a more aggressive approach, and your skin will need to be prepped by starting with a series of at least 3 micropeels. These peels reach deeper into the skin and are typically done in the fall/winter when you can stay completely out of the sun. They are safe to have every 6 weeks; however, a consultation with your provider is needed to determine what is best for your skin. These peels are not done with any type of manual exfoliation.
Tone, texture, & hydration will improve. Elasticity & collagen production increases and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced. Pigment is significantly diminished.
Clients must be using professional products for a minimum of 4-6 weeks to have this treatment.
*Clients wishing to have any chemical peels should stop using retinoids [retinol, Tretinoin, Tazorac, any Vitamin A product] 3 days prior/5 days post having a treatment. *
