Today’s professional chemical peel treatments are uniquely formulated for ultimate results, safety and experience. The concentration of a chemical peel can vary and determines the depth of exfoliation from mild to deep. Innovations in professional peels can yield optimal resurfacing results with less discomfort and recovery. The benefits of chemical exfoliation can include improved skin texture, radiance, refinement of pores, sun damage repair, minimized fine lines and promotion of collagen synthesis.
Mild to moderate sensations of tingling, prickling and stinging are normal and vary from mild to moderate depending on the peel’s formulation and concentration. After the peel is applied and thoroughly neutralized, soothing skincare and sun protection are applied to the skin. A professional quality mineral make-up is suggested to conceal any lingering redness and inflammation from the treatment and may be applied immediately after your session.
Mild peels result in very mild redness, cellular swelling and sloughing which can last up to 48 hours. A moderate depth peel can result in marked redness and peeling for five to seven days. During the recovery process, the skin may feel dry and appear flaky from activated cell renewal.
How It Works
A professional preparation process includes deep cleaning. The chemical peel is carefully applied and removes layers of dead and damaged skin cells to reveal fresh, smooth skin. This process activates cell renewal, stimulating collagen production for improved skin texture. Skin can look instantly brightened and soft. Chemical peels are recommended to help balance irregular pigmentation, manage acne and blemishes and to combat signs of aging and sun damage.
