Are you noticing skin damage, such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, rough texture, or scarring? Chemical peels can improve your skin condition, revealing smoother, healthier skin with minimal down time.
Depending on your specific skin concern, your aesthetician will select the ideal peel for you to restore your skin to it’s natural, healthy state.
What are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel uses a non-toxic chemical solution to smooth your skin by removing damaged surface layers. While chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to correct skin imperfections on your neck and hands.
Sun exposure, acne, or age can leave your skin uneven, wrinkled, spotted, or scarred. Chemical peels have differing degrees of strength, so it’s important for your aesthetician to thoroughly examine your skin to determine which formula is best for your needs. Chemical peels are generally for patients who are not ready for the CO2 laser resurfacing or simply do not want the associated down time.

A chemical peel can improve the appearance of:
- Acne and acne scars

How are Chemical Peels Performed?
Your aesthetician will begin by cleansing your face of oils and makeup. The chemical peel solution is then applied to your skin and left on for several minutes. You may feel some burning or stinging, but it is not painful. The chemical peel is neutralized with a cool saline pad after treatment.
