PAMPER YOURSELF WITH ONE OF OUR CHEMICAL PEELS
You should be happy to know that our chemical peels are proven treatments for skin problems like scars, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and more. Each type of peel is individually tailored to your unique needs and individual goals. It encourages your body to replace damaged skin tissue with fresh skin that displays fewer imperfections like signs of aging or sun damage.
What are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel is a medical-grade solution that consists of an acid that is applied to the skin to remove damaged skin tissue. Your body’s response to the treatment is to create new skin tissue that rises up and replaces the old skin above.
What Types of Chemical Peels are There?
Theoretically, the number of peels is unlimited, since we have the ability to mix-and-match different chemicals in different concentrations for the needs of every patient. Generally, peels come in three main forms: superficial, medium, and deep. In addition to their depth of penetration, peels are categorized by their ingredient list, concentration strengths, and what they treat.
Superficial chemical peels treat only conditions that are found on the very surface layers of the skin. Common treatments for this type of peel are superficial acne scars, enlarged pores, and dull complexion. Medium peels are a bit stronger than the superficial version and are able to deal with skin problems like light lines and wrinkles, superficial scars, and hyperpigmentation.
Deep chemical peels are the most aggressive form of treatment in this class. They involve the application of a solution containing stronger acids.
How Do I Care for My Skin After My Chemical Peel Treatment?
After your peel, you need to baby your skin since it will be somewhat sensitive while it heals and rebuilds the outer layers that come into contact with environmental hazards. Do not vigorously rub or manipulate your skin during your healing period. Remain hydrated and avoid activities that could excessively dehydrate your skin. Avoid the use of irritating skin care products. Stick with what you know works best for you and your skin. Of course, our team will be sure to provide you with exact instructions regarding aftercare.
