Chemical Peels are a popular non-surgical procedure. The skin’s top layer is peeled to improve sun-damaged, unevenly pigmented, or wrinkled skin, thus improving the evenness and texture. It makes your skin look healthier, luminous, and more youthful.
We apply a chemical solution to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and peel off, which subsequently allows healthy, new skin to regenerate. There are three types of chemical peels:
Chemical peels show good benefits in the following:
Please consult us for a full evaluation. Avoid waxing, scrubbing for one week before the procedure, and retinol for two days prior.
During the procedure:
After cleansing your face, we will apply a peeling solution to the area for a set amount of time. A neutralizing solution will follow this.
You might experience some burning sensation for a couple of minutes during and after the procedure. We may prescribe ice compresses and pain medication to address the discomfort.
Right after a peel, your skin is more vulnerable to sun damage. Strict sun protection with a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30+ is necessary. Redness and exfoliation might occur for about 3-5 days but maybe longer in deeper peels. You can usually wear camouflage make-up after a day or two. We suggest avoiding extensive exercise or heavy sweating for 2-3 days.
After one peel, you will notice an observable difference in your skin. However, with regular treatments, you can obtain the best results. Since skin damage multiplies over time, it also takes time to reverse it.
