What is a Mandelic Acid Peel?

A Mandelic Acid Peel is a type of chemical peel that employs the AHA mandelic acid. Ideal for those seeking to diminish dark spots, even out skin tone, repair sun damage, and alleviate acne-related inflammation, this peel gently exfoliates the skin. By removing dead skin cells, it accelerates new cell growth, enhancing skin’s overall health and appearance.

Why Choose Mandelic Acid Peel at Deva Med Spa?

What to Expect During a Mandelic Acid Peel at Deva Med Spa, Vancouver, BC

When you arrive at Deva Med Spa in Vancouver for your Mandelic Acid Peel, your journey to revitalized skin begins with our expert team thoroughly cleansing your face. A preparatory primer might be applied to enhance the peel’s effectiveness. The Mandelic Acid Peel, customized according to your skin care needs and skin type, is then gently applied and left on your skin for a period ranging between five to fifteen minutes. During this time, you might feel a warming sensation, or possibly nothing at all, varying with individual skin sensitivity. This is a normal part of the process as the peel works to exfoliate dead skin cells that standard cleansers cannot remove.

Post-application, it’s common for the skin to appear slightly pink, a typical reaction indicating the peel’s effectiveness. For those undergoing the peel for acne treatment, there might be a temporary increase in acne symptoms. This is because the exfoliating action of the peel brings underlying acne to the surface, which may briefly worsen before the antibacterial properties of the peel begin to promote healing. Rest assured, our skin care professionals at Deva Med Spa are dedicated to guiding you through each step of the process and are available for consultations regarding any post-treatment concerns or side effects. This personalized attention ensures a safe, comfortable, and effective treatment experience.
