Peel away imperfections

What is A Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels cause controlled damage to the epidermis and/or the dermis with the goal of stimulating new tissue to improve skin texture and tones. This process reveals a smoother and more radiant complexion.

How Are Chemical Peels Classified?

Chemical peels are classified as light, medium, or deep, depending on the depth of penetration of the ingredients used. Light peels exfoliate to various levels of the epidermis. Medium-depth peels treat through the papillary dermis and deep peels to the mid-reticular dermis. Deeper peels require more down time.

How do Chemical Peels Work?

Superficial chemical peels decrease the pH at the surface of the skin and change the pH gradient of the stratum corneum. This loosens the connections between dead skin cells inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. Medium and deep chemical peels cause protein coagulation and cell necrosis (cell death) in the epidermis and dermis. This induces inflammation and the wound-healing cascade. Both type of peels thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate collagen. The result is a smoother and more radiant complexion.

Treatment Expectations

Beautiful, healthy skin doesn't happen overnight, and treatments take time to show results. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin; however, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne could take longer.

On What Areas of the body are Chemical Peels Used?

Chemical peels are usually performed on the face, but may also be used on the neck, décolleté, back, backs of arms and hands.

How can Chemical Peels benefit the skin?

Peel treatments rejuvenate the skin. They improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even our skin tone, improve acne-prone skin and reduce the appearance of pore size.

How do you choose which chemical peel is for you?

Not all peels are created equally, and one peel type doesn't suit all. Certain ingredients may be more effective for treating acne, while others may be ore successful in treating hyperpigmentation or the signs of aging. Our trained skincare professionals are here to help determine which is best for your skin care concerns.
