Also known as chemical resurfacing, chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that produce an improved appearance of the face. Chemical peels are used for the treatment of photoaging (from sun damage), wrinkles, scarring, acne, precancerous lesions, and discoloration (or dyschromia). Chemical peels increase the growth and development of your skin, removing the dead skin cells from the surface to reveal fresh new skin.
During your skin consultation, we will thoroughly discuss the procedure and products with you so you are well prepared. We promise a relaxing, rejuvenating treatment and dramatically improved skin afterwards!
It's totally normal
Optimal results for a chemical peel take a few days to present themselves. At first, your skin will look and feel tight and you may experience minimal discomfort along with areas of swelling. Areas of hyper-pigmentation may appear darker as well. This is normal, so don't fret! These side effects are a result of the chemical solution sloughing off the superficial layer of dead skin. Once the layer completely peels, the bright, fresh and young skin beneath will be revealed.
Check with your doctor
Please note that chemical peels may not be suitable for everyone. Certain medications, like Accutane, cannot be taken if receiving a chemical peel.
