What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical peel is a combination of acids and enzymes used to revitalize the skin and treat a variety skin conditions. Different types of peels are formulated to reduce pigmentation, promote even
skin tone, minimize pores, correct blemishes and treat acne for a bright, clear, radiant complexion. The proper solution is applied to the skin which causes it to exfoliate and shed the dead skin cells. This new, regenerated skin will feel smoother, as skin texture improves, fine lines and wrinkles are decreased. The result is a more vibrant, glowing, youthful appearance!
Your skin care specialist can recommend the appropriate chemical peels according to your skin type to target and correct the skin conditions you would like treated.
There are three basic types of chemical peels:
Superficial or Light Peel: Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.
Medium peel: Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is applied to penetrate the out and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration. It also can be used to smooth rough skin.
Deep peel: Tricholoracetic acid or phenol is applied to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment removes moderate lines, age spots, freckles and shallow scars. Patients will see a dramatic improvement in skin appearance.
