Are you looking for a smooth, fresh new look without surgery or even injectables? Well a chemical peel is just the thing your face needs! In fact, we recommend a mild face peel once every 4-6 weeks for consistent results.
There are so many benefits to this treatment, and it’s customizable to your specific needs and concerns. A light peel is perfect for anyone to a deep peel if you're looking for more intense results.
What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical Peels help to improve damage caused by the sun and elements that contribute to wrinkles, age spots, blemishes and premature aging over time. A chemical peel involves a naturally derived acid solution being brushed onto your face.
This solution causes the outer layer of your skin to peel or flake off, revealing younger, more refreshed skin underneath. How much peeling depends on the intensity of the peel you and your provider choose.
What are the benefits of a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peel treatments, such as salicylic or glycolic peels, have rejuvenating effects on skin. They help to increase cellular turnover, allowing younger and fresher skin to be revealed. Peels can also treat concerns such as hyperpigmentation, acne and superficial scarring, as well as improve the appearance of fine lines and texture.
There are many different peel options according to patient concerns and skin types. Your skin’s tone will become more even, and your skin will feel baby-soft.
How often should you get a Chemical Peel?
The frequency of chemical peels depends on how strong the treatment is, as well as what imperfections you’re looking to correct. With mild peels, once a month is safe and ideal for the average skin type.
Skin cells are renewed about every 28 days, so results last about that long. For medium to deep peels, 2 to 4 times per year is advised. Peeling usually begins on day 3 and can last for 5-7 days total. There is little to no discomfort during the treatment.
