What is a chemical peel?
These peels are tailored to address specific skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne, and uneven texture.
How does a chemical peel work?
During your appointment, the aesthetician washes your skin and applies the chemical peel, akin to a liquid face mask, avoiding the eyes and mouth. After allowing it to dry, the peel is removed. While the peel is on your skin, you may experience a tingling or stinging sensation. The chemical peel works by dehydrating the outer layers of dead skin, causing them to dry out and peel off. Most chemical peels yield full results within 3-5 days.
What are the benefits of a chemical peel?
Furthermore, chemical peels stimulate cellular turnover, enhancing the overall health and appearance of the skin. Increased blood flow from cellular turnover contributes to a more youthful glow.
Are there alternative exfoliation treatments?
Similar to chemical peels, microdermabrasion encourages healthy blood flow and stimulates cell turnover, resulting in a fresher, brighter complexion.
