What Is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to remove the dead and damaged outer layers of skin. Chemical peels improve and smooth skin texture and help to reveal younger, clearer, more radiant skin. Chemical peels, also known as "Lunchtime Peels" are traditionally performed on the face, hands, and neck to treat fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and skin discoloration. Chemical peels are also effective in treating mild scarring and acne.

What type of peel is right for me?

Your meeting with your NEW BEAUTY MED SPA consultant is an integral part of the process. The type of treatment which is right for you will be determined by you and your NEW BEAUTY MED SPA consultant to provide you with the greatest benefits.

How long do treatments take?

Often referred to as "lunchtime peels," these treatments can be performed in about 15 to 20 minutes.

Is there any downtime?

The in-office treatments require little or no recovery time. Although there is typically no downtime; after a treatment, depending on the customization of the procedure, you may experience redness the day of the treatment and minor peeling in the days following the procedure. Depending on your skin you may or may not experience peeling. If peeling occurs, it usually begins 2 to 4 days following your treatment and lasts for approximately 3 days. In addition you may experience mild itching and irritation.

How does the Green Peel® work?

Green Peel® - Herbal Deep Peeling Treatment consists of a special blend of plants and natural herbs. In contrast to other exfoliating creams or methods, it does not contain any chemicals or synthetic peeling agents.

Green Peel® increases the blood circulation of the skin and causes the upper epidermal layers to peel off. The stimulated blood circulation intensifies metabolism and promotes healthy, more youthful-looking skin.

It is perfectly safe and has no side effects. If the herbal preparation should inadvertently come into contact with the eyes, it will not cause them to sting or water.

How does the skin peel when no chemical substances are used?

When the Green Peel® compound is massaged into your skin, the herbs own micro particles lightly polish the upper layers of skin (epidermis removal). Other active ingredients in the herbal preparation also penetrate the skin where they are absorbed within 48 hours. Once absorbed they release valuable, natural active substances such as vitamins, plant hormones, enzymes and other beneficial ingredients into the skin. The absorbed active substances increase the blood circulation of the skin and cause the upper epidermal layers to peel off. The stimulated blood circulation intensifies metabolism and promotes healthy, more youthful-looking skin.

How does the skin look after the treatment?

After the treatment…the skin may be red and slight irritation similar to a mild sunburn may be experienced.

Three to four days later…exfoliated skin begins falling away. During this time you can work normally and should not need to take time off.

On the fourth or fifth day…a follow-up treatment takes place. Your NEW BEAUTY MED SPA professional will, if necessary, massage and use a rich active preparation on the new skin, which is now very absorbent. There is no redness on the resurfaced skin. The complexion is considerably improved—fresh, clear and radiant.
