What is a Chemical peel?
Chemical peels are highly effective in enhancing the quality of your facial skin and natural beauty. Chemicals peels resurface the skin to increase your skin cell turnover so that your natural beauty and inner glow illuminate your face. Through a series of treatments, chemical peels stimulate production of the underlying layer of skin cells, stimulating collagen and elastin levels–the building blocks of supple healthy skin.
Who should consider a Chemical Peel?
Anyone who wants their skin and inner beauty to glow by stimulating newer skin cells to come to the surface should consider a chemical peel. Chemical peels also help fight acne and acne scars, enlarged pores, rough and oily skin, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (age spots) and photoaging by exfoliating the outer layer of dead skin cells so that your underlying radiance glows. Anyone with poor skin quality and dullness will benefit from a chemical peel and dramatically see results.
How long will a Chemical Peel take?
From start to finish, chemical peels take approximately 20-30 minutes. There is very minimal or no downtime. Each chemical peel is customized for your skin. Patients with sensitive skin need not worry.
How often can I have a Chemical Peel?
The frequency of a chemical peel depends on the condition of your skin. Depending on your skin and the type of results desired, chemical peels can be performed as frequently as every two weeks for maximum benefits.
What can I expect following my Chemical Peel?
You may have some redness following the chemical peel, which is expected for optimal results and should subside within a few hours. You may be more a little bit more sensitive to the sun, so we recommend that you limit sun exposure after your chemical peel for at least one week afterwards. We recommend sun protection for the face using chemical-free sunblock. The amount of peeling of the skin in the following days of your chemical peel depends on your current skin condition and the intensity of the chemical peel you receive. For optimal results, continued skin maintenance with chemical peel treatments are recommended.
