Chemical peels are a method of removing the outer layer of skin on ordered to remove uneven textures and tones while revealing new fresh skin by incorporating a chemical solution. Chemical peel face treatments can be added to many of our facials or stand alone and are very effective at reversing the signs of ageing including fine lines and wrinkles. Chemical peel acne treatments can treat acne and reduce the appearances of acne scaring. Chemical peels can also be used on the hands to reduce sun spots as well as the neck or back. Not all chemical peels are the same. Since we have an Advanced certified esthetician overseen by a medical director we have the access to medical grade peels that will enhance the results that you would achieve elsewhere.

Rapid results seen here improving acne and discoloration caused by acne scaring.
Avoid tanning and direct sun exposure for two weeks before each treatment. Don’t use any products containing retinoids two weeks before treatment. The chemical peel areas must be free of any open sores, lesions or skin infections.
Superficial peels cause only slight discomfort during the treatment and afterwards. Most feel a stinging sensation immediately once the chemical is removed from the skin that can be relieved with a small fan blowing on the treated area. Deep chemical peels are much more painful and often require prescribed pain management medication as well as antibiotics so we do not offer them.
Over the next 1 to 14 days, it is important that you avoid the sun until your skin has fully healed as it will be very sensitive and easily sun burned. After a chemical peel, most people can return to their normal activities immediately. The skin heals quickly after a superficial peel. The skin may turn pink, and usually only minimal peeling occurs. You can use makeup to hide any redness until it fades. There is little or no pain after the peel, but there may be some swelling, especially if the area around the eyes is treated. The skin will turn reddish brown in 2 to 3 days, become crusty, and then flake and peel over the next few days.
After the chemical peel face treatment your skin will begin to peel away. Once this happens new fresh skin is revealed. In addition, your skin will continue to repair itself increasing collagen production which will add to the fresh new skin look you should now be seeing. If you have scaring or discoloration which led you to getting the treatment, you will see that they have become lighter and less noticeable. You skin should now have a more even color and tone across all treated surfaces and you should continue to see improvements over the following 4-6 weeks.
Treatments take about 30 minutes.
The state of your skin after a peel depends on the type of chemical used and your skin type. Superficial peels have limited effects. They still may cause some redness and sensitivity.
With good sun protection, results can last months, even years. This is dependent upon the depth of the peel. The deeper peels generally provide a long-lasting effect.
Superficial peels are quite safe, although minor irritation of the skin can occur. The risk of deep peels can include infection, scarring, redness, and discoloration. During a very deep peel (administered under the care of a physician only and not performed in our facitlity), anesthesia should be used and vital signs monitored.
You can use a mild cleanser and always include either Hyaluronic Replenishing Serum / Green Tea Anti-Oxidant Serum as often as needed. You may resume regular skincare 3-5 days after a peel or once redness or peeling is no longer apparent. Sun protection is a must!
Light / superficial peels take approximately three to five days to complete the shedding process. No downtime required. The skin may or may not flake and fall away.
