Skin “A-Peel”: Discover What Chemical Peels Can Do For You

Chemical Peels work by exfoliating the skin surface to (1) reduce the appearance of blemishes, (2) smooth the skin surface and/or (3) improve radiance and restore the skin’s overall health.

There are three types of chemical peels:

  • A superficial peel uses a mild alpha hydroxy acid to gently exfoliate and will penetrate the outermost layer of skin.
  • A medium peel uses trichloroacetic acid, also known as glycolic acid, to reach the middle and outer layer of skin. This is effective for removing damaged cells.
  • A deep peel which fully penetrates the middle layer of the skin to remove damaged skin cells. These peels often use phenol acids.

For optimal results, peels work best in a series.  We suggest four peels spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart. Chemical peels should always be performed by a licensed skin care professional with access to highly performing peel solutions that are clinically proven to deliver results.

Ultimately a good home care regimen is important to have the best outcome possible. Good skin care is a habit, not just an occurrence. Your esthetician will personally suggest products for your skin type.
