Chemical Peels

Here’s Why Chemical Peels Are the Secret to Perfect Skin

A spotless, lineless, flawless complexion is lying just beneath the surface of your skin—and doctors have found that a classic treatment is the fastest way there.

About the Procedure

Chemical peels are typically used to restore a youthful, vibrant appearance to wrinkly, blotchy, sun-damaged skin. As the upper layers of skin cells are shed, signals are sent to the living cells below to multiply and move up. This increases collagen and hyaluronic acid (natural filler) production to create younger looking skin.

Chemical Peel Benefits

There are many benefits to receiving a chemical peel. Not only do chemical peels reveal a brighter, smoother and more refined complexion, they also improve the overall look and feel of the skin. Other benefits of receiving a chemical peel include:

Making Your Skin + Skin-Care Products Work Better

Chemical peels can make your skin and your skin-care products work better. After a treatment, dead skin cells continue to be shed allowing the living cells below to multiple and move up, increasing collagen production and making more hyaluronic acid—essentially allowing the skin to act and appear “younger.” Aside from giving you smoother skin that's both more radiant and receptive, they also enable skin-care products used at home to be more effective because they remove several layers of skin build-up and congestion, allowing products to penetrate deeper into the skin.

Custom Peels To Address Specific Concerns

There are three main types of chemical face peels, and each has unique benefits for the skin:
1. The light chemical peel improves acne scars and skin texture and reduces the effects of sun damage.
2. The medium chemical peel improves acne as well. The medium peel also smoothes fine surface wrinkles and corrects pigment problems such as age spots.
3. The deep chemical peel helps treat sun-damaged skin, eliminates deep, coarse wrinkles, and can remove pre-cancerous growths.

Eliminate Acne and Soften Acne Scars

When it comes to addressing acne, chemical peels are a viable solution in helping to clear up breakouts and eliminating visible skin imperfections and superficial scars. Since the outer layer of old skin is removed during the process of a chemical peel, the new skin that replaces it is often smoother. The result is a reduction in the appearance of scars.

Reduce The Appearance of Under Eye Dark Circles

Regular chemical peels can exfoliate the skin and improve the tone and texture, particularly around the eyes and helps reduce pigmentation. Getting rid of all the top dead skin cell layers improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and thickens the eyelid skin, which helps lessen the appearance of dark circles and bags under the eyes.

Chemical Peel Recovery & Maintenance

For long-term results, a series of three or more chemical peels spaced four to six weeks apart is recommended. The benefit of receiving a series of peels is that this treatment will be able to target the deeper layers of the epidermis, giving your skin an enhanced exfoliation. This type of deep exfoliation can stimulate cellular turnover, resulting in the production of healthy, glowing skin.
