Under this process, a mild acid is applied to the skin, causing it to shed the first few layers of skin cells. Chemical peels contain active ingredients that stimulate the shedding of the top layer of the epidermis. When the dead skin cells are removed, a new layer of skin is produced, that’s fresh and rejuvenated giving an appearance of younger healthier skin.
Treatment Areas: Face, back, hands, and legs
Chemical peels are proven highly effective in treating problems with acne, hyperpigmentation, and dull, wrinkled skin.
How much time does it take?
A typical treatment should take no longer than 15 minutes.
How much downtime is there after doing the peel?
The skin will shed and peel over the next 4-7 days and will have the look of dry skin.
Will a chemical peel make thin skin even thinner?
Dry skin is partially the result of dead cell buildup, which actually hinders natural exfoliation as well as the absorption and penetration of vitamins and nutrients. The chemical peel will remove surface buildup, hydrate the skin and give it a plumper, “thicker” appearance. The use of topical vitamin C and peptide products in a treatment, as well as in your daily care regimen will help build collagen in the skin, thus making it stronger and more durable.
