Circadia Chemical Peels

Routine and repetition are the keys to success in skincare.  They’re the key to success for your clients’ skin because when they use the same products on a routine basis and repeat their treatments and home care, their skin begins to adjust and is able to find balance.

However, repetition is also the key to success for the skin care business!  When you have clients coming in on a regular basis for treatments and to replenish their home care products, not only is their skin benefiting, but so is your business’s bottom line.

Learning why chemical peels are beneficial to the skin, and, why it is beneficial to do them on a routine basis are key in your ability to educate your clients on how they can easily reach their skincare goals if they work with you through a series of chemical peels.

3 Skin Types Ideal For Peels

You will find that there are 3 specific skin types that will benefit from chemical peels.  When clients present with acneic skin (grades 1-3), aging skin and/or skin that is dealing with pigmentation issues – you can offer chemical peels to help improve the appearance of their skin and help them achieve their skin care goals.

Why Is A Chemical Peel Beneficial For Aging Skin?

Aging skin is usually dull in appearance and presents with fine lines and wrinkles.  This is a result of a buildup of proteins due to slower cellular turnover.  Chemical peels will remove some of the surface protein build up that doesn’t allow for much light refraction.

The chemical peel will induce a controlled wound that will stimulate fibroblast activity and accelerate cell turnover. Increased fibroblast activity enhances collagen & elastin production and an increase in cell turnover will deepen dermal papilla.

This will result in younger, more youthful looking skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles.

Why is a Peel Beneficial for Pigmented Skin?

When there is hyperpigmentation or dark spots on the skin’s surface, chemical peels will help to remove surface proteins, however, in this case you will be removing proteins that are housing melanin.  This will help to remove surface hyperpigmentation.

You are not changing the melanocyte activity or using any tyrosinase inhibitors, but this is removing the cells that are highly densely pigmented as well as accelerating cell turnover resulting in less time for melanin deposition.  Especially in aging clients who are in a 40-45 day cell turnover.  This will help to even out skin tone.

Why is a Peel Beneficial for Acneic Skin

Salicylic Acid focuses on the sebum in the follicle and helps to erupt the impaction and clear the pore.  Only peel acne grades 1 – 3.

Clients with congestion, black heads and who are overall oily are ideal candidates. If a client is showing inflammation as a primary symptom they are not a candidate for a chemical peel and may be better suited with an enzyme to remove surface proteins.

How To Get The Most Out Of A Peel

Peel intensity can be increased through 2 different methods – layers and time. Lactic and Alpha/Beta Peels are in a gel base –  time determines their activity. There will be no delayed peeling with the gel based peels. They can be used in a facial setting as the form of exfoliation(without steam). The gel based peels must be neutralized with the pK Neutralizing Spray and removed.

The Jessner, DermFrost, MandeliClear and Vitamin A Accelerator are in an ethanol base and are layer dependent to increase their intensity. Our ethanol based peels are self-neutralizing and we recommend to follow our standard protocols for application.

Chemical Peel that’s Gentle on Skin

Harsh chemical peels can make skin temporarily look worse, not better. Circadian Gel Peels offer a gentle yet effective treatment that:

  • Relieves problematic skin conditions (including acne-prone skin)
  • Promotes collagen formation
  • Improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Skin prone to redness
  • Helps refine the texture of sun damaged skin

Gel peels protect, soothe, and nourishe skin while it works. These are rash reduction peels and acne peels that benefit the skin, protecting it while addressing the problematic areas. Afterwards, they reveal the beautiful, radiant skin underneath for a finer, softer, more evenly colored appearance.

See the Difference with a Restorative Skin Peel

Although several treatments may be recommended, you’ll see a difference with a restorative skin peel in just one treatment. Fine lines disappear. UV damage is reduced. Your skin looks brighter, radiant, and more evenly colored after just one treatment.

Unlike harsh peels, Gel Peels from Circadia produces a mild tingling sensation. It’s not as harsh as older peels, and yet it gets fantastic results.  You’ll emerge from just one treatment with a brighter look that makes people wonder if you’ve just come back from vacation.
