What is a Pumpkin, Chemical Peel?

Pumpkin is the perfect ingredient because it contains enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and gentle acids that help to safely and easily remove the dead layer of skin from the face while rejuvenating and revealing the healthy, glowing skin underneath. It targets the cell receptors responsible for activating cell turnover and stimulates growth of the base layer of the epidermis, helping the cells progress to maturity and giving structural integrity to both the epidermis and the dermis.

Pumpkin seeds are also a rich source of minerals, particularly zinc, which is a great antioxidant and skin healer. So, individuals with acne will benefit from this peels balancing and healing properties, as well as people with aging, mature, or dry skin will see a change due to its ability to promote healthy cell structure and cellular renewal. Individuals with a normal skin type will also enjoy and benefit from this peels gentle, nourishing qualities.

How does the Pumpkin Peel Facial work?


At our skin’s prime, the process of epidermal turnover, where older skin cells die off and new ones make their way up to the surface of the epidermis to replace the older ones can take as long as one month depending on the condition of one’s skin. However, as we age that process can be twice as long. However, the important elements found within pumpkin assist in this cellular rejuvenation process and in turn can strengthen weakened skin structures. This is especially important for aging or damaged skin, that does not renew itself as effectively and easily as our younger skin once did. So, in order to restore the process of natural exfoliation, we can use enzymes and gentle acids like those found in this pumpkin peel.

In October 2014, Alyssa's Eyelash introduced Pumpkin Peel Facial service, with the month promotion for only $60/session (regular $75) the Superficial Pumpkin Peel Facial removes skin through a portion, or all of the epidermal layers. These are considered the “refreshing” forms of skin peels.

Removal of the top layer of dead skin cells proves to be very beneficial for many skin types and conditions. Providing for the perfect extraction opportunity if necessary. This particular peel can be used as an individual treatment, or in conjunction with other facial treatments such as microdermabrasion. It can also be used to pre-condition the skin for more aggressive treatment peels.

By using an acid peel you are tapping into your body’s own natural ability to replenish and refresh skin cells while binding moisture, antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients to the skin. This allows the fresh new skin cells below the surface to brighten up the skin’s appearance.

A series of treatments can also help with: reducing the appearance of very mild, blotchy skin discoloration, help lighten hyper-pigmentation, remnant acne discoloration, reduce the appearance of mild scarring, provide a thorough, deep cleansing of the pores and reduction of stubborn blackheads, softening and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and correcting the effects of sun damage.

Although chemical peels due alleviate acne, excess oil, and reduce blackheads, these will also be brought to the surface first as they are purged from your skin and some individuals may experience their acne and congestion come to the surface two or three days after the treatment. In the days to follow your skin will feel and look beautiful guaranteed.
