Chemical Peels & Facials

Chemical peels & Facials at our Southlake Med Spa

Facials are gentle treatments that cleanse your skin and open up your pores. They are designed to target the superficial layers of your skin, removing signs of dullness and tiredness.

Chemical peels function just like facials, as they are designed to improve the well-being of your skin. However, peels are specially-formulated using active ingredients, natural acids (fruit, herbal, etc.), and proteins. They have a stronger impact on your skin.

Whenever you go out, pollution and ultraviolet (UV) rays damage your skin. Every time you apply cosmetics, your skin experiences abrasion from chemicals found in makeup. As your skin sheds old cells or when it produces oil, your pores start to clog.

All of these can make your skin look dull and lifeless. Our facials and chemical peels in Southlake can help awaken and rejuvenate your skin by providing the deep exfoliation and revitalization it needs.

Benefits of facials and chemical peels

Facials can help you:

  • Feel and look refreshed
  • Remove debris and oil coating the surface of your skin
  • Make your skin feel soft and supple
  • Make improvements to your skin tone
  • Reduce skin dullness and make you glow
  • Provide a temporary protective barrier of nutrients that can safeguard your skin

Chemical peels can help you:

  • Exfoliate and cleanse your skin deeply, completely opening your pores
  • Remove any bacteria in your pores
  • Renew your skins vibrant appearance
  • Reduce the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, brown spots, liver spots, and acne scars
  • Improve the texture and tone of the skin
  • Peel away the old and damaged superficial layer of the skin and reveal healthy, young skin underneath

Facials vs. Chemical peels: Which is right for you?

When it comes to skin revitalization treatments, facials and chemical peels offer a host of benefits—but which one is right for you?

Chemical peels target the deeper layers of the dermis, cleansing debris that is lodged deep within your skin. They also contain essential nutrients that can stimulate cellular regeneration, healing any damage in the inner layers of your skin.

Don’t let the name “chemical peel” scare you. Sheets of skin will not be falling off your face. You will need to allow the products to absorb into your skin for the remainder of your treatment day. This is a mild and customized treatment that will only leave you a bit flaky for a few days.

You should schedule a chemical peel if:

  • You have moderate to severe skin damage and need facial revitalization
  • Your pores are severely blocked and are causing acne
  • You have very visible blemishes
  • You want long-lasting facial rejuvenation benefits
  • Your skin is dull

Considering this, you should choose a facial if:

  • You don’t have severe signs of sun damage or skin dullness
  • You need a minor touch-up to look youthful and rejuvenated
  • Perfect if you have an event coming up
  • You need to relax and unwind
  • You regularly get peels and facials done and have come in for a short treatment

Dr. Gordon and her team can help you make the right choice. We conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your skin health. We then create a customized treatment plan that can help you get the youthful, blemish-free, and luminous skin you’ve always wanted with the best facials Southlake has to offer.

Gentle PCA peels for sensitive skin

At Renew MD Facial Aesthetics, we use only PCA chemical peels to revitalize, retexturize, and tone your skin. PCA peels are perfect for people with sensitive skin. Our aesthetician, Haley, will create a chemical peel cocktail to target your problem areas and skin concerns.

We will gradually build your skin strength and durability up with stronger peels to ensure you continue to get that beautiful glow after every peel. We offer chemical peels Southlake clients rely on.

Our custom peels contain ingredients such as:

  • Lactic acid
  • Salicylic acid
  • Tartaric acid
  • Citric acid
  • Kojic acid
  • Hydroquinone
  • Resorcinol
  • Phytic acid

These ingredients combine to form an acid peel that ranges from 6-10% in strength. They offer intensive exfoliation but are very soothing. PCA peels have antioxidants that treat free radical damage. They remove dead skin cells and heal damaged dermal cells, peeling away the scarred tissue in your skin. After a few PCA peels, you’ll see how blemishes, like spots and pigmentation, appear lighter.
