What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is an accelerated skin exfoliation procedure using safe chemical products resulting in renewed, healthier looking skin and a more uniform complexion. The post-peel result is glowing, healthy skin.
Who can benefit from chemical peels?
Peels can address and improve visible skin imperfections such as:
- Skin tone and texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Pore size
- Hyperpigmentation and sun damage
- Superficial scars, such as acne scars
- Acne and blemish breakouts
How do I decide what peel is right for me?
During your skin care consultation, one of our licensed aestheticians will evaluate your skin condition and recommend a regimen customized to your specific skin needs.
What should I expect during and after a chemical peel?
During treatment, you may feel a slight warming or stinging sensation on your skin, which will only last for a few minutes. Your procedure will be completed within 30 minutes and you will be given post procedure instruction by your aesthetician.
Once your procedure has been completed, your skin may be pink and a little sensitive to the touch for a while. You shouldn’t wear any makeup during this time, but should apply sunscreen. After a few days, you may notice some shedding or peeling of your skin, which is a normal part of an advanced exfoliation procedure. Despite the flaking and peeling, keep your face moisturized and protected from the sun.
Peeling is exfoliation. When your skin peels, it is shedding old dead skin cells and revealing new healthy skin. Everyone experiences different levels of peeling, depending on your skin type, resilience and the type of peel used. Some people experience significant peeling, while others have no visible peeling. If you experience no peeling, your skin is still exfoliating on a cellular level, which will reveal healthier skin.
