What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical Peels use acids to gently exfoliate the surface layers of dead skin cells, diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, acne, and roughness. Our chemical peel offerings vary in strength and can be customized to address your unique skin concerns.
Chemical Peels accelerate exfoliation of the superficial layers of skin cells. An acidic peel solution is activated when applied to the surface of the skin. Depending on the strength of the peel, it will penetrate to different depths of the dermis (skin). Exfoliation or “peeling” of the treated cells will occur during the days following treatment.
And, What do Chemical Peel Treatments Feel Like?
Chemical Peels can be used to treat the face, neck, chest, and back.
What a Chemical Peel feels like will vary depending on its strength. Patients often describe a feeling of heat, or a prickly, burning sensation when the peel is activated on the skin. Peel solutions typically don’t stay on the skin for very long, so any discomfort is usually short lived, and tolerable.
Our highly effective Chemical Peels are very safe, and only available to physician supervised medical spas, such as ours.
Recovery from a Chemical Peel varies depending on the peels depth. Some peels will make the skin feel tight and over the course of several weeks, the superficial skin layers will peel and flake away, whilst a light peel may not have any visible peeling or downtime. At the time of your consultation, we will discuss with you what recovery to expect depending on the specific peel.
