We all seek healthy, attractive skin, but sun exposure, pollutants, environmental elements, and lack of proper skin care compromises about 80 percent of the skin’s aging process. Fortunately, modern cosmetic chemistry now allows us to formulate advanced treatments, procedures, and products that can refine skin texture to look smoother, clearer, and much younger.
What Are Chemical Peels?
This non-surgical cosmetic procedure is used to peel away the skin’s top layer in order to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, necks, or hands. It can minimize sun damage, equalize the skin’s pigment, and lessen the appearance of wrinkles.
If you’re interested in a chemical peel, you can choose from various treatment strengths that determine the depth of penetration (light, medium, or deep), length of time (3-10 minutes), and concentration of acid (30-70 percent). You can also choose from Glycolic, Lactic, Salicylic, AHA with vitamin C, Jessner, TCA, and more.
How Does A Chemical Peel Work?
After a brief skin analysis, one of our expert aestheticians will select the chemical peel that will meet your exact needs and concerns. The aesthetician will then apply the chosen chemical solution to your skin. It will eventually cause the skin to exfoliate and peel off. The new, regenerated skin will be smoother, less wrinkled, and more radiant.
