WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?
A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to the skin to lower the pH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, including exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peels off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion.
Chemical peels have been used dating back to Ancient Egypt, according to some sources, Cleopatra used sour milk to improve the appearance of her skin.

How does a chemical peel work?Chemical peels work by using specific acid solutions to remove dead skin cells and stimulate cell turnover. The acids penetrate the skin and dissolve the bonds between old skin cells, allowing them to be sloughed off. This process encourages the growth of new skin cells, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath.
What skin concerns can chemical peels address?Chemical peels can effectively address various skin concerns, including acne, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and texture irregularities. The type and strength of the peel will depend on the specific concerns being targeted.
Are chemical peels painful?During the chemical peel, you may experience a tingling or mild burning sensation, which is generally well-tolerated.
How long is the recovery period after a chemical peel?The recovery time can vary depending on the type and depth of the peel. Superficial peels typically have minimal downtime, with some redness and peeling that lasts for a few days. Our medium to deep peels may require a longer recovery period, ranging from several days to a few weeks, during which the skin may appear red, swollen, and have more noticeable peeling.
How many sessions are needed to see results?The number of sessions required depends on the specific skin concerns and the type of peel used. Some people may see noticeable improvements after just one session, while others may require a series of treatments for optimal results. Your skincare professional will assess your skin and recommend a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
How should I care for my skin after a chemical peel?Following a chemical peel, it's crucial to follow the post-treatment care instructions provided by your skincare professional. This may include using gentle cleansers and moisturizers, avoiding sun exposure, wearing sunscreen, and avoiding harsh skincare products or treatments that can irritate the skin.
