San Diego Perfect Derma Peel FAQs
Curious about The PERFECT Derma Peel? Learn all about it with these common patient questions and answers from the skincare experts at LJCSC.
Am I a good candidate for The PERFECT Derma Peel?
Safe for light and dark skin, gentle, and highly effective at improving a range of skin concerns, the PERFECT Derma Peel is pretty perfect for most patients. However, it is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you have taken isotretinoin (Accutane) in the last year, you are allergic to Aspirin, or you are still healing from laser resurfacing or other exfoliating treatments.
When will I see results after The PERFECT Derma Peel?
The peeling process typically begins about 48 hours after treatment and is complete within about 5 days. After this, your skin will be noticeably smoother, clearer and brighter. Regular makeup is allowed after a few days.
Most patients are satisfied with their improvements after just 1 to 2 treatments, performed several months apart—you can thank the perfect combination of glutathione, Vitamin C, and the classic peel acids TCA, salicylic acid, and phenol in The PERFECT Derma Peel for the rapid, dramatic results. Patients with more extensive skin issues may benefit most from 2 to 3 treatments, spaced about a month apart.
What’s so great about Glutathione?
Glutathione is a protein-based antioxidant molecule that your body makes that defends cells (including skin cells) against stress, damage, and death. This super warrior princess of antioxidants tracks down and neutralizes free radicals (those unstable oxygen molecules that form as a result of UV radiation, stress, smoking, and other harmful things), keeping them from damaging your cells.
Unlike your average antioxidant, glutathione even helps other antioxidants, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, ALA, CoQ10, do their job better. Research has shown that glutathione is so effective at offsetting free radical damage that it may even have an anti-cancerous effect.
With plenty of glutathione present, your skin cells can quickly repair damage, fight off would-be damage, and remain youthful and healthy. But as you might have guessed, the body makes less and less glutathione as we age, leaving skin more vulnerable to visible fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and other blemishes.
The PERFECT Derma Peel is currently the only peel on the market that includes glutathione. Even better, it contains glutathione in an optimal amount to give your skin what it needs to quickly regenerate healthier skin cells and dramatically improve in appearance.
