Why choose a Chemical Facial Peel?
Facial Peels are used to improve the texture of skin, increase the cell turnover, help the skin hold moisture and produce more collagen. Facial Peels canclear up acne, improve minor scars, reduce fine lines and hyperpigmentation and unclog pores. Once the skin is peeled, the skin looks dewy and glows.
Healthy skin is beautiful skin. With the wide range of natural acid peel combinations, chemical peeling can now be individually tailored to meet your specific needs. Our “in office” peels will yield real and noticeable results.
What is a Chemical Facial Peel?
Facial Peels are a chemical solution applied to the skin like a treatment mask. The peel is either removed at the end of the treatment or left on to self-neutralize. The acids in the peel work to dissolve the top layers of the skin creating a controlled wound and thus allowing the skin to regenerate itself. For mild to moderate peeling we offer the ViPeel, Fruit Acid Peels (alpha peels), Salicylic Acid Peels (beta peels), and acid peels for sensitive skin. With repeated use, chemical facial peels have also been proven to help decrease the incidence of superficial skin cancers by removing the top layer of sun damaged, precancerous skin cells. As an adjunct to some peels, we also offer Dermaplaning (link to page), a technique for epidermal exfoliation and the removal of vellus facial hair. For deeper peels we offer the BensiPeelTM (link to page), Dr. Bensimon’s revolutionary advance in facial resurfacing for permanent improvement of facial wrinkles and skin health.
How we are different.
Bensimon Center is committed to science and artistry. We offer the latest state-of-the-art procedures and products while giving our patients natural, long-lasting results. We differentiate our Facial Peels from others because we do not have a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Your Facial Peel is customized to your specific needs. Downtime is minimal. The skin may be red for 6-24 hours following treatment.
We perform thousands of Facial Peels each year. Instead of rushing patients through the process, we take our time. Patients are invited to listen to relaxing music and enjoy views of the Broadway Bridge during their procedure. These and other attention to detail make our treatments the most comfortable Facial Peel experience in Portland.
To maintain your results, our licensed medical aesthetician and aesthetic team will work closely with you to prescribe a skin care regimen that will keep you looking your best. We carry the most cosmetically elegant and clinically validated skin care products in the world, including our own formulation, BensiSkin™. Patients who use the BensiSkin™ clinical skincare line also report they are easily able to maintain a rejuvenated, youthful appearance by protecting their skin and following a healthy lifestyle.
