The skin is constantly exposed to external toxins, dirt, debris, and harmful UV rays. The constant accumulation of pollutants and toxins can make your skin look rough, uneven, and damaged. Chemical peels can wipe away months of accumulated damage, making your skin look refreshed and youthful.

Uncover Healthy & Youthful Skin

The skin is your body’s largest organ. It acts as a protective shield, keeping your internal organs safe from infections, bacteria, viruses, environmental pollutants, UV rays, and toxins. But as you go through life, your skin can get damaged, leading to acne scars, pigmentation problems, wrinkles, fine lines, and textural irregularities. Chemical peels allow you to exfoliate and slough away dead and damaged skin cells, paving the way for healthy and youthful skin.

What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are unique medical-grade skincare formulations made of specialized chemicals that exfoliate the uppermost layers of your skin. When chemical peels are applied to your skin, they stimulate cellular regeneration and encourage the uppermost layers to peel away, revealing smoother, softer, and healthier skin underneath. In addition to removing impurities and damaged skin, chemical peels prepare your skin to receive topical cosmetic products that reinforce your skin’s nutritional balance.

Chemical Peels Can Correct:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Facial scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Dull skin
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Textural irregularities
  • Skin laxity
  • Melasma
  • Other skin concerns

Types of Chemical Peels

Superficial Peels

Superficial chemical peels are made of mild acids, such as alpha-hydroxy acid. They only penetrate and exfoliate the outermost layers of your skin and cause minimal side effects. Superficial peels don’t involve any downtime.

Medium Peels

Medium chemical peels are made of trichloroacetic or glycolic acid. They can penetrate and exfoliate the middle and outermost layers of the skin, making them more effective at removing damaged skin tissues. They can correct issues related to facial scarring, but they also involve a few days of downtime.

Deep Peels

Deep chemical peels are made of phenol or trichloroacetic acid. These are powerful acids that can penetrate deep within the middle layers of the skin to remove the damaged skin cells, making them suitable for deep scarring and pigmentation problems. Deep peels may involve a few days of downtime.

Benefits of Chemical Peels:

  • Improve overall skin tone and texture
  • Personalized according to your unique skin type
  • Suitable for different skin complexions and types
  • Non-invasive treatment for skin concerns
  • Little to no downtime after the treatment

Recovery After Chemical Peels

Each chemical peel is unique, so your recovery will depend on the specific acids used in the chemical peel. Mild and superficial chemical peels don’t involve any downtime, but deeper peels may necessitate up to 2 weeks of recovery. Your skin will start peeling a few days after the treatment, but you must not pull at the flaking skin. Once the peeling process is complete, your skin will look smooth and youthful.
