The skin your clients want is under the skin they see. Although chemical peels are an obvious choice to reveal younger, smoother, brighter skin in your treatment room, there are outdated beliefs about how peels have to perform. These myths are not only literally hurting your clients, they also stand in the way of your ability to offer the ultimate chemical peel: with zero pain, zero flaking and zero downtime.

Myth No. 1: Stronger is better

Today’s traditional peels all fall into the same trap: They’re often composed of monster-strength percentages of single acids, with the philosophy that “stronger is better.” But stronger isn’t better. Stronger percentages only do one thing--aggressively peel the skin. Are you beyond this medieval-sounding practice? Shouldn't peels work better and do more for you and your clients?

Fact: Forget about single acid peels in too-large percentages. Bioelements new chemical peels, Glycolic Detox Charcoal Peel Levels 2 and 3, are formulated with a combination of multiple exfoliating acids--glycolic and lactic acids, plus extracts of exfoliating fruit acids--with natural buffering willowherb and aloe to prevent redness and irritation. Plus, activated coconut charcoal stimulates microcirculation and draws out impurities, while detoxifying the skin. Bioelements has also launched an acetone-free, alcohol-free Peel Prep Lipid Eraser to accelerate treatment results and allow for maximum penetration. Together, they create a peel service like no other before it.

Myth No. 2: Skin must “peel” in order for a chemical peel to work

Once again, this is an outdated esthetics concept. It’s based on traditional ablative peels that leave skin with a sunburn-like appearance, and require the client to go into hiding for several uncomfortable, unsightly, itchy, skin-shedding days. A peel shouldn’t disrupt your client’s life.

Fact: Skin doesn't have to peel to get a peel. Bioelements' vision has always been to “coax the skin into shape, never assault it,” and that’s our key philosophy when it comes to chemical peels. Our advanced acid-hybrid peels dissolve dead epidermal cells; however, because the particles are so small, they are invisible to the naked eye. It’s nonsurgical, nonablative peel technology that works on a microscopic level, so you get a completely controlled removal of damaged skin to smoothe texture, improve line and wrinkle appearance, brighten, lift pigment, and increase hydration and firmness. And they’re so powerful, so effective--you can even use them on the hands, neck and V-area, building an entire service menu with targeted glycolic chemical peel treatments.

Myth No. 3: Long-term results will take weeks

Traditional, single-acid peels remove the entire epidermal layer down to the dermal junction, or further down into the upper dermal layers. Due to the amount of skin removed and the resulting open wound, significant client after-care and negative attributes can occur. Clients can feel pain or burning, and see a sunburned appearance that may last for days or weeks. Clients may also have to deal with open wounds, “weeping” skin, crusting, scabbing, frosting or darkening skin that peels off in patches. Antibiotic ointments, heavy medicated gels or occlusive creams may have to be applied up to 20 times a day. In some cases, medicated patches or tape are applied to the face post-peel.

Fact: The post-peel skin misery listed above is outdated and unnecessary. With Bioelements new Ultra-Detox Chemical Peels, the client never has to worry about negative side effects. There’s no pain or burning sensations during the treatment, or afterward. Skin takes on an instant, healthy glow. Our peeling process is invisible to the naked eye, since it occurs at the microscopic level. Post-peel, your clients can immediately apply cosmetics, skin care and sunscreen, and resume their normal daily routine after each treatment. No need to hide. Clients will see immediate results, and will continue to see dramatic, long-term results with a progressive series of Ultra-Detox Chemical Peels and proper at-home care.
