A medium depth peel is a type of chemical peel that penetrates deeper into the skin compared to superficial peels but not as deep as deep peels. It involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which causes controlled damage to the outer layers, leading to exfoliation and regeneration of new skin cells. Medium depth peels can help improve the appearance of various skin concerns, including wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, and sun damage.

Here are some key characteristics and considerations of medium depth peels:

1. Depth of Penetration: Medium depth peels penetrate deeper into the skin than superficial peels but not as deep as deep peels. They typically reach the upper to middle layers of the dermis, where they target more significant skin issues such as moderate wrinkles, acne scars, and pigment irregularities.

2. Chemical Solutions Used: Medium depth peels often utilize stronger solutions compared to superficial peels. Our peels are derived from fruit, nuts, or natural substances.  Don't let the word "acid" scare you.  Your body has lots of acids in it such as Hyaluronic Acid and that is harmless.  Consult with your Aesthetician on the results you'd like to see as well as any upcoming events that your skin needs to look in top shape for and we will make the best recommendation for your skin.  We offer peels that include Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid and Mandelic Acid.

3. Treatment Process: During a medium depth peel, the chemical solution is applied to the skin and left on for a specific period, depending on the peel's strength and the individual's skin condition. The solution is then neutralized or washed off. Clients may experience a burning or stinging sensation during the application, which typically subsides after a few minutes.

4. Downtime and Recovery: Minimal downtown is required. You may experience redness, swelling, and peeling of the skin for several days.  It's essential to avoid sun exposure and follow post-treatment care instructions provided by our Aestheticians to minimize the risk of complications and promote proper healing.

5. Results: Medium depth peels can produce noticeable improvements in skin texture, tone, and appearance. They can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve optimal results, depending on the severity of the skin concerns. Book your chemical peel in Boston at our Back Bay spa today!
