Chemical peels is a non-invasive treatment that exfoliates and peels away the old and dull outermost skin cells. Chemical peels can help improve the appearance of sun-damage, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, reducing acne, minimizing dryness, oiliness, fine lines, pores, sun spots, melasma, and hyperpigmentation. The process is more effective in multiple treatments, with diamond microdermabrasion treatments, and a clinical skin care regime.
How the peeling process works?
- Peel Penetration
The skin is penetrated by the chemical acid which generally causes some redness, darkening, swelling, and/or frosting (the skin turns opaque or powdery white) depending on the strength and type of peel applied.
- Skin Tightening
After the acid is neutralized the skin will feel dry & tight for the first day or two. If a light strength peel was used skin may become wrinkled & flakey. If a medium peel was used more peeling may start on the 3th or 4th Day & typically last for 4 - 7 days.
- Peeling or Flaking
Once the peeling slows down and stops, the skin begins the healing process. Outer layers may still be visibly pinkish. During this time it is especially important to protect this newly revealed skin with a broad band spf every day and moisturize at least twice daily with a hyaluronic moisturizer.
