A chemical peel is a skin treatment that can be used on the face or body to reduce and potentially eliminate a variety of skin conditions while also improving the overall state and appearance of the skin.
It is a type of chemical exfoliation in which the outermost layer of skin is removed by destroying dead skin cells and causing a layer to peel off. Chemical peeling agents, primarily acids, are applied to the skin, and the affected layer peels off within a few days.
Peel to reveal the brighter and younger you
Chemical peels are procedures that exfoliate the skin to reveal a more youthful, glowing appearance. Peel smooth fine wrinkles, regenerate collagen, and give the face a lighter appearance by promoting new skin growth.
What Does A Chemical Peel Do?
Revive Damaged, Aged Skin
Improve your skin and youthful appearance by reducing fine lines, sun damage, and wrinkles.
Get Rid of Discoloration
To expose a more even skin tone and complexion and facilitate the disappearance of redness,
discolorations, and blemishes.
Resolve the Problem of Acne
Assist in restoring the skin’s natural oil balance, resulting in a more uniform, clearer appearance and less redness and irritation.
Types Of Chemical Peel
Our aesthetician uses three basic types of chemical peel to cater to your skin’s needs
Alpha-hydroxy acid or similar mild acids penetrate only the outer layer of the skin to exfoliate gently. It refreshes the face, hands, and neck and improves moderate skin discoloration and roughness.
Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid penetrates the outer and middle skin layers to remove damaged cells. The treatment improves age spots, freckles, fine lines, and moderate skin discoloration. It can treat actinic keratosis and smooth rough skin.
In deep peel, Trichloroacetic acid or phenol deeply penetrates the middle layer of the skin to remove damaged cells. It reduces minor wrinkles, age spots, small scars, and freckles. You will feel a dramatic improvement in your skin.
How Is Chemical Peel Done?
Each consultation begins with a thorough skin analysis to determine the optimal chemical peel. Aestheticians apply a liquid peeling agent for two to five minutes, depending on your skin type. After the chemical peel, the aesthetician will clean your pores, and apply a relaxing mask, moisturizer, and sunscreen.
