Layers of Rejuvenation

Peel Depths

Specialized Treatment Courses

Rhonda Allison offers highly specialized skin care solutions – and skin peels are no exception. Your trained skin care practitioner will assess your needs to determine the most beneficial skin peel formulation, application technique, and post peel regimen. A variety of Rhonda Allison skin peels are available at three fundamental levels:

PROGRESSIVE
A progressive skin peel is the mildest course of treatment, removing only the outer layer of the stratum corneum with no visible peeling. Repeated treatments on a regular schedule, up to once a week, will cause mild exfoliation for the skin with cumulative effects. This is best described as a mild, yet refining, peel.

MID-DEPTH
A mid-depth skin peel targets the intra-epidermal layer and may be administered every four to six weeks as needed. Light flaking may occur, similar to a sunburn peel. Mid-depth peels offer excellent rejuvenating effects with minimal to no down time.

DEEP
A deep skin peel reaches the deepest intra-epidermal layers where skin peels in large segments. Skin becomes brown and crusted prior to considerable peeling, occurring three to four days after application. The typical recovery period lasts seven to ten days, with the treatment allowed up to twice per year.  A deep peel restores and renews skin with the most dramatic results. 

It is a common misconception that the higher the peel percentage, the stronger the peel.  We are all so different, strength in peels is relative to the skin they are touching.  Someone with Rosacea may benefit just as deeply from a progressive peel as would someone with thick, leathery skin a deep peel.  Your skin care provider will assess your skin needs to provide you the best treatment unique to you.
