If you’re dealing with dull skin, hyperpigmentation, scarring, wrinkles, or other skin concerns, you might wonder what you can do to help revitalize your skin. Many of our patients mention skin concerns, but believe invasive cosmetic surgery is the only way to address signs of aging. Fortunately, innovations in skin care and aesthetic treatments mean there are many non-invasive and minimally-invasive options to help rejuvenate your skin and appearance. Medical-grade chemical peels from Jan Marini Skin Research® (JMSR) are incredibly effective and can help refresh and renew your skin with less downtime. If you’re looking for solutions for small imperfections, these chemical peels may help you improve the look of your skin and feel more confident.
Before we explain some of the benefits of the JMSR peel systems, it’s important to understand what chemical peels are. You might already be familiar with them, but as a quick overview. Chemical peels use a chemical solution, typically mild acids, applied to the skin for exfoliation. They can provide a deeper exfoliation than many home skin care products like scrubs and exfoliating brushes.
Modern chemical peels really got their start in the 1800s as treatments from dermatologists for conditions like melasma and hyperpigmentation. However, there’s a lot of evidence that some forms of chemical peels have been around since ancient times. For example, ancient Egyptians may have used lactic acid in sour milk as a skin care treatment similar to a chemical peel. Therefore, peels have been around for quite a while. However, they’re quickly gaining popularity as a simple, minimally-invasive option for aesthetic treatments.
Chemical peels can help with many cosmetic concerns on the skin. Many people use chemical peels as aesthetic treatments for their face, neck, and décolleté. Peels can help treat a wide range of conditions and signs of aging, including:
Our treatment providers can help you choose a peel suited for your specific concerns and help you determine if you’re a good candidate for this treatment.
So, how do chemical peels work? First, let’s talk about how your skin works. Your skin constantly turns over skin cells. The lower layers of your epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) form new skin cells. As your skin makes new cells, the older cells begin to die, change shape, and get pushed toward the very top layer of the skin. Eventually the dead skin cells shed off to make way for newer cells. However, sometimes you can get a buildup of dead skin cells. Dead skin cell buildup can clog your pores, make your skin look duller, emphasize lines and wrinkles, and even hold onto extra melanin, which is the cause of hyperpigmentation.
A chemical peel sloughs off these dead skin cells to reveal newer, fresher skin. After chemical peel treatments, many people notice their skin looks brighter, smoother, more even, and also even more youthful. Chemical peels offer deeper exfoliation than many other types of exfoliants that you might use at home. Therefore, regular peels can be a great addition to your regular skin routine.
Now you know some of the particulars about chemical peels, let’s go over some of the benefits of the Jan Marini peel system specifically. Medical-grade chemical peels from Jan Marini Skin Research are only available to professionals. Our trained pros perform these treatments in-office to provide deep exfoliating through JMSR’s innovative chemical peel technologies. JMSR designed these peels to help improve the appearance of your skin with less downtime than many other types of treatments and many people see results in just one to three treatments.
JMSR currently offers three medical-grade peels: Clarify, Transform, and Refine. Each peel consists of two steps. The first step includes a special acid mix formulated to help address specific skin concerns and provide deep exfoliation. The second step includes a leave-on retinol activator that contains retinol, peptides, and antioxidants to help boost effectiveness and start the healing process.
Clarify peels from Jan Marini Skin Research are primarily used for acne-prone skin and acne scarring. Refine peels offer overall skin rejuvenation. Transform peels are the most aggressive option for medical-grade chemical peels from Jan Marini. They can help address many different skin concerns, including pigmentation and sun damage. They also offer overall skin rejuvenation. Transform peels use a special blend of lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol in the first step to help slough off dead skin cells.
