About Chemical Peels
Be prepared for tighter, smoother, brighter-looking skin with an intensive peel treatment customized for your unique skin concerns. This medical peel decreases fine lines, wrinkles, and pores as well as diminishes hyperpigmentation issues and stimulates collagen synthesis. Chemical peels can vary in strength depending on the severity of our Fleming Island and Jacksonville, FL patients' conditions. Generally, they are categorized as light, medium, or deep, with the deep peels being the highest level offered. During this treatment at Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa, the goal is to allow the chemicals to remove the blemished and damaged layer of your skin in order to reveal a fresh, new layer with increased collagen. The first step is to schedule a consultation with our aesthetician to determine which peel is the best option for you.
The best candidates for receiving one of our Pure Peel treatments will have:
- Wrinkles, fine lines, and creases associated with aging
- Pigmentation and texture issues, or other irregularities
- A desire for a longer-lasting, more intensive option as opposed to other facial treatments
- A desire for a natural look and realistic expectations
"The hydrofacial from Melissa was amazing! I've also decided to do IPL through Pura Vida and it's incredible how much better my skin looks after just one treatment. I can't wait to see the results after my series of 3 is done. Great atmosphere, relaxing and serene. They have a salt room that I can't wait to try. Highly recommend - A+++++"- L.A. / Yelp / Oct 11, 2019

"Melissa did a relaxing hydrafacial. My skin really needed some TCL and that is what I received. I also waxed my legs. She used a soy wax which made it a pretty painless procedure. I felt cared for and that is priceless.I had a sports massage with Ericka too. AMAZINGNESS!!! This massage is great for tight muscles that need to stretch for some relief. Ericka stretched me farther than I can do on my own and it was so perfect for me. This is coupled with a massage that really gets into the knots on my neck, back and shoulders. It has been a great week for me!!!"- V.G. / Google / Oct 10, 2019

What to Expect
During a chemical peel treatment, you will have already received a consultation and decided on which peel will be administered. Depending on the degree of your treatment, the process could vary. Our aesthetician will carefully brush on a thin layer of the chemical substance; for medium-depth peels, Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is typically used, while phenol is associated with deep peels. You should expect to feel some mild tingling and burning, but the discomfort should not be severe. The deeper the peel is, the more discomfort you may feel. After washing off the peel, a saline cold compress is generally placed onto the skin to neutralize any side effects. These treatments are expected to last around 50 minutes.
You can notice visible improvements after just one treatment. For best results, a series of 3 – 6 treatments is recommended. You may experience some redness or scabbing if the peel is deep, and it may take between 7 – 10 days for your new layer of skin to appear. Results can be expected to last for up to 2 – 6 months, but will vary per person.
