Chemical peels combine vitamins and acids to rejuvenate skin by removing the top dead layer of skin, improving tone, texture, pigmentation, and overall skin health. It works to shrink pore size, correct fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen and elastin production and improve acne and hyperpigmentation.
Immediately after the peel, your skin will feel tight and may be red. Any visible peeling will be light and fluffy and easily controlled with moisturizer.
A chemical peel is a very safe procedure when performed by our qualified and experienced and certified esthetician.
Why Should You Choose a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure. Depending on the skin problems you would like to address during your appointment,
- Light chemical peel. A light (superficial) chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis). It’s used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone and dryness. You might have a light peel every two to five weeks.
- Medium chemical peel. A medium chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). It’s used to treat wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin tone. You might need to repeat the procedure to achieve or maintain the desired result.
- Deep chemical peel. A deep chemical peel removes skin cells even deeper. Your doctor might recommend one for deeper wrinkles, scars or precancerous growths. You won’t need repeat procedures to get the full effect.How to prepare for your chemical peel:
