We offer the Alumier™ MD range of advanced chemical peels. These peels are meticulously regimented skin treatments that address a variety of skin conditions using customized ingredients that produce beautiful results. Comfortable to experience with minimal down-time, they slough away dead, corny layers to reveal the live layers of epidermis that can receive and utilize the active ingredients from skincare.
Alumier™ MD Chemical Peels are proven to:
Vivier® medical grade chemical peels work by removing the outermost layer of skin, causing immediate gratification by diminishing imperfections.
Peels effectively combat dullness, blotchiness, age and sun spots, hyperpigmentation, reduce pore size and improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Peels can be used as a stand alone treatment or as a part of a regimented plan for more dramatic effect when combined with other treatments or procedures.
Chemical peels aim to treat various imbalances in every skin tone, type and texture. After a thorough consultation, your aesthetician will choose your peel according to its ingredients and apply it in layers depending your skin’s immediate responses. The peel will be neutralized at exactly the right time to avoid over-exfoliation. Clients with particular skin disorders will be advised if a peel is beneficial for them, or if a different approach, like IPL or homecare, would be more suitable.
Cease use of any products that contain retinoids (eg Retin-A, Tazorac, retinol), high percentages of vitamin C, or any AHAs or BHAs at least 7 days prior to treatment. Do not have skin treatments of any kind for at least 7 days prior to treatment.
Upon application of the peel, clients report a feeling of warmth and tingling that peaks and then dissipates within a couple minutes. The entire treatment is easily tolerable and precisely timed. Once the peel is neutralized, a soothing medicated moisturizer is applied to calm and rebalance the skin. Lastly, an SPF 40 is applied to protect your skin from UV damage.
This will depend on your skin type, tone and texture. A single peel makes for a nice skin prep for an event, but for best results, a course of 4-6 peels is recommended. Your aesthetician will advise you at consultation on what approach is best for you.
To ensure gentle cleansing, hydration and sun protection, we will provide you a kit of post-care cleanser, moisturizer and SPF to use in the days immediately following the peel. Light day makeup can be worn if necessary. No products containing retinoids (eg Retin-A, Tazora, retinol) should be used for at least 7 days after the peel. Do not have skin treatments of any kind for at least 7 days after the peel.
