Chemical Peels


Chemical Peels

Chemical exfoliation is used to remove the outer-most layer of the skin and reveal the fresh, less-wrinkled layer below. In these procedures, a chemical formula is placed on the skin, which then peels off, eliminating dead cells and leaving the skin with clarity, luminosity, and showing an improvement in fine lines.

Who Can Benefit from Chemical Exfoliation? Chemical exfoliation is used for age management and effectively improves the feel and appearance of the skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles caused by sun exposure, aging, and genetics. It can also treat age spots, freckles, and other superficial hyperpigmentation. Most skin colors and types can benefit from chemical exfoliation, though it is best to check with your esthetician about which type might be right for you.

If you’re taking acne medication, Retin-A or Accutane, talk to your esthetician about stopping the medication before and during treatment to avoid complications.
