What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels involve applying a solution to the treated area that loosens or removes the outer layers of skin, producing smoother, more evenly pigmented, glowing skin. There are different types and strengths of peels available and our medical aesthetician can choose the chemical peel that best meets your needs. In general, the stronger the peel, the more dramatic the results with each treatment but a series of milder peels can also produce great results without any visible flaking or peeling.

What types of Peels are there? 

Light or “lunch hour” peels are the mildest of the chemical peels. These peels include glycolic, lactic, (AHA) or salicylic acid (BHA) peels. They exfoliate the outermost layers of the skin to smooth the skin’s texture, balance out pigmentation and make pores appear smaller. Because these chemical peels cause little if any visible peeling or flaking they are often done in a series to achieve the desired results.
