Renew Your Beauty with JC Diamond Peel!
Since skin is such a delicate part of your body and withstands a great deal of wear and tare, it tends to show the most signs of aging and damage. Skin cells often become hyper pigmented or dehydrated, which can leave your face looking wrinkled and tired. There are many solutions that claim to rejuvenate your skin and leave it looking fresh, but few show actual results. However, as skin care advances every day, there are more options available that have proven success. Chemical peels are quickly becoming the new method of improving your skin to leave you feel refreshed. Chemical peels are effective at improving your skin’s texture and appearance, as well as removing any hyper pigmentation or facial wrinkles. They have been around for quite a long time, but have improved vastly to create smoother, more beautiful in a shorter time frame, and with more ease. Chemical peels offer fast results, so you almost instantly feel that your skin is renewed.
Benefits of Chemical Peels:
Chemical peels, as the name suggests, use a chemical solution to help improve your skin, and reinvigorate the skin cells to even out your skin texture. It does this by removing the damaged outer layers of your skin, where the dead skin cells often build up. A combination of phenol, trichloroacetic acid, and alphahydroxy acids are used, and they work effectively to help chemically alter your skin’s appearance. Chemical peels are recommended for those that have facial blemishes, wrinkles or uneven skin pigmentation. However, they have also been used to remove benign skin growths, acne scars, and it is sometimes used to help treat and control acne in those who deal with aggressive acne. While it is sometimes used in these ways, the most common is simply for cosmetic reasons, and the boosting of self confidence.
One new chemical peel on the market that is getting quite a bit of buzz is the JC Diamond Peel. It contains a combination of 17% Trichloroacetic acid and 17% Salicylic acid, and does not contain any phenol. The peel has a gel consistency, and is anhydrous (meaning lacking water). The elimination of phenol in this peel helps limit the pain and cell injury that is commonly associated with chemical peels. This is because there is no ionization of free acids in the skin, so there is a lessened burning sensation. The lack of phenol also allows the peel to sit on the skin for a longer period of time, which increases the efficacy of the treatment.
Side Effects from the Chemical Peel
Yet, there are still side effects from the chemical peel that should be noted. The trichloroacetic acid can cause discomfort, skin peeling, erythema and skin discoloration. Since TCA is so powerful at removing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it fits that there can be pain associated with contact to the skin.
The chemical peel procedure is relatively simple. It is placed onto your face for approximately 10 minutes before being wiped off with a high potency Retinol solvent. Any remaining remnants of the peel are left on the skin for a while longer before being washed off completely. The retinol solve aids in the retexturing of the peel solution so that it can be removed with ease. The best part about the JC Diamond Peel is that it is more comfortable, which means that the recovery period is much shorter, so you can get back to your life. You are also provided with a take home kit to help keep your face clean, moisturized, and protected as your facial skin heals.
The JC Diamond Uplifing peel has also seen remarkable results in those who have tried it. Since it uses weak acids and less harmful ingredients, it completely rejuvinates the face with minimal pain experienced. Your skin texture and appearance will be vastly improved following the chemical peel. There is much less redness and peeling following the product application compared to the standard peel, and it is applied over a series of 4-6 treatments to help brighten your skin.
The JC Diamond Uplifting peel is applied over the course of 2-3 weeks by the doctor, and the duration of time the peel solution is kept on depends on the patient’s skin type. There is a brief at-home regimen that you must also follow to allow the product to work most effectively.
