WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?

Chemical peels are a form of exfoliation that promote beneficial skin resurfacing.  A solution made of AHA, BHA, or TCA is applied to the skin, where it gently dissolves built up layers of skin cells. This action boosts the skin’s natural cell functions, resulting in improvement of fine lines/wrinkles, dark spots/discoloration and acne. Each peel is customized to your specific skin conditions and concerns, giving you the best possible outcome.

A series of peels is recommended for optimum results. This ensures we are turning the cells over rapidly and treating new layers of skin. Cooler seasons are the best for peels when you have no plans to be in continuous sunlight.

AFTERCARE

Your treatment provider will discuss your personal aftercare treatment and expectations. Depending on the depth of your peel expect some redness and peeling of the skin. After peel care includes a 24-hour period free of makeup, exercise, and excessive heat such as hot showers, steam rooms and saunas.  Wide brim hats and broad spectrum SPF over 30 should be worn everyday to protect the sensitive skin, especially during peak sunlight hours.

SAFETY

Chemicals peels should not be performed on anyone who has recently waxed, has been in or plans to be in the sun, has an active cold sore, used Accutane within the past year, has had recent radiation or chemotherapy, had laser treatments or injectables, as well as women pregnant or breastfeeding.

Discontinue using any prescription topicals as well as products containing retinol, alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), beta hydroxy acids (BHA) or benzoyl peroxide three days prior to your peel.
