Our chemical peel treatments use a gentle solution to remove the top layer of dead skin cells and stimulate cell turnover, leaving your skin looking smoother, brighter, and more even-toned.
Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that work by removing the outermost layer of skin using a chemical solution. This process is also known as exfoliation or skin resurfacing. The chemical solution is applied to the skin and left on for a specified amount of time, allowing it to penetrate the skin and dissolve the bonds between the dead skin cells. These dead skin cells are then sloughed off, revealing the fresh, new skin beneath. The strength and type of chemical used in the peel will depend on the patient’s skin type and concerns, and the treatment can be customized to achieve the desired results.
Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that use a specially-formulated chemical solution to exfoliate away dead skin cells and reveal the fresh, healthy skin beneath.
Chemical peels are generally safe when performed by a licensed esthetician or medical professional. However, it’s important to follow all pre- and post-treatment instructions to minimize the risk of complications.
There are several different types of chemical peels, including glycolic acid peels, salicylic acid peels, lactic acid peels, and TCA peels. The type of peel used will depend on the patient’s skin type and concerns.
Superficial chemical peels remove the outer epidermal layer of skin to produce a brighter/fresher appearance, reduce fine lines and improve the appearance of pigmentation and acne scarring. Usual peeling agents include Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) such as glycolic acid.
Medium depth peels (Trichloroacetic acid peels) produce a medium-depth peel. They are more effective at removing fine lines, pigmentary changes and acne scarring. They will cause swelling and a scab will form over the treated area.
During a chemical peel, the esthetician will apply the chemical solution to the skin and leave it on for a specified amount of time. You may feel a slight stinging or burning sensation during the treatment. Afterward, the skin may be red and sensitive for a few days, but this will gradually improve.
The results of a chemical peel can last for several months, depending on the strength and type of peel used, as well as the patient’s individual skin type and concerns. To maintain the results, it’s important to follow a good skincare routine and avoid excessive sun exposure.
You will receive a soothing and moisturizing lotion that you will apply twice daily for about two weeks. If you received intimate bleaching, you will receive an additional lightening cream which needs to be applied daily for twelve weeks.
