Chemical peels use various solutions to peel away the top layers of the skin, revealing the fresher, smoother, undamaged skin underneath. A chemical peel is an effective method for treating facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation. Leaving the skin looking uniform, soft, and renewed, each chemical peel is uniquely formulated to treat specific needs. Allegro MedSpa offers a variety of different chemical peels, ranging from light glycolic acid peels with minimal recovery to stronger, more effective Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) peels that treat more severe conditions but take longer to heal.

At Allegro MedSpa, microdermabrasion can provide an unparalleled level of customization, precision and performance. Microdermabrasion is excellent for treating deeper facial lines, sun damage, acne scars, and rosacea. The treatment encourages new production of collagen and elastin, producing thicker, healthier skin layers for long-term results.
Allegro MedSpa’s revolutionary system, available only from an experienced medical practitioner, combines meticulous exfoliation, medical-grade topical solutions, and variable vacuum pressure for the most effective, satisfactory results. As a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure, medical microdermabrasion utilizes a fine spray of aluminum oxide crystals, which uniformly remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells. Finally, using mild suction, the dead tissue, debris, and crystals are swept away.
Microdermabrasion from Allegro MedSpa helps both men and women to achieve polished perfection in their appearance as younger, healthier skin is revealed after treatment.Fast and virtually pain-free, the procedure takes from 30 to 60 minutes. Between five and twelve microdermabrasion treatments, spaced two to three weeks apart, are normally required for optimal results.

Peels and Microdermabrasion FAQ
How does the chemical peel treatment from Allegro Medspa work?
The chemical peel is a unique procedure that is designed to accelerate the skin’s exfoliation process. Using chemical peeling agents, the top layer of skin is sloughed away, allowing healthy, new skin cells come to the surface to create a more uniform, brighter complexion.
How do I know which peel is for me?
Each chemical peel is specially formulated for specific needs. During your consultation at Allegro MedSpa, the face and skin will have an in-depth evaluation. Issues such as the early signs of aging, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles will be assessed. At this time, the right chemical peel will be determined, and a personalized treatment plan will be created, to meet your specific needs.
What can I expect from my chemical peel recovery?
The exact recovery time after you chemical peel at Allegro MedSpa will vary according to the strength of the treatment. Immediately after your chemical peel, the skin may feel tight and be mildly red. Peeling can last for three to five days, depending on the chemical treatment used. During the healing period, patients will need to use a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and daily sunscreen, to protect the tissues. While normal activities can be resumed immediately, extended periods of direct sun exposure should be avoided until the skin has completely healed. Specific recovery instructions will provided during your chemical peel appointment.
How does microdermabrasion differ from dermabrasion?
Traditional dermabrasion is a semiinvasive technique, utilizing a powerful, hand-held device to eliminate the top layer of the skin. This traditional procedure often needs a local or general anesthesia, and requires several days of downtime. Microdermabrasion from Allegro MedSpa is much less invasive, utilizing a small applicator that sprays a mist of fine crystals on the target area, gently removing dead skin cells. These are then softly vacuumed away, leaving skin smooth and clean. Microdermabrasion is not traumatic for the skin and requires no downtime.
Will I make a good candidate for a chemical peel or microdermabrasion at Allegro MedSpa?
The ideal candidate for a chemical peel or microdermabrasion will be in overall good health, with no active skin infections. Patients should understand the specific chemical peel or microdermabrasion technique being performed, and hold realistic expectations for their final results. Those who are pregnant or nursing may be encouraged to postpone their treatment.
