Chemical peels reveal smoother, younger and healthier skin literally just below the surface. Chemical peels do exactly what their name implies: treating the skin with a chemical solution that peels back layers of aged, damaged skin to address specific skin concerns. 

What does a chemical do to your face? First a chemical peel will remove the topmost layer of skin along with dead, rough skin cells. The body will begin to heal itself by signaling skin cells to multiply and move to the surface of the skin. The body will also boost collagen needed to plump and smooth the skin improving the skin’s elasticity. Chemical peels improve the skin’s tone and texture and are easily customizable depending upon the issues you are looking to correct in your skin.

Chemical peels are used to tone skin and even out pigmentation, improve fine lines and wrinkles, fade the appearance of acne scars, increase collagen and elastin, control melasma, reverse sun damage, and provide a smoother, more youthful complexion. Chemical peels are a skin resurfacing treatment made from acidic solutions causing the skin to shed, peeling away imperfections of the skin. Chemical peels promote cell turnover revealing new, fresh skin that looks and feels younger. 

There are 3 types of chemical peels each with their own unique strengths and ideal skin types: light (also called superficial), medium and deep. Deep chemical peels fully penetrate the middle layer of skin and are considered the most aggressive of the treatment options. Because of the intensity of a deep peel, patients only require 1 treatment. Not only do deep chemical peels target facial wrinkles and treat sun damaged skin, but they can remove pre-cancerous growths too. 

Chemical peels have a moderate recovery time of 1 to 14 days with redness and swelling common side effects. Skin will peel for an average of 10 days after treatment. Moisturizing skin, staying out of the sun and allowing your skin to rest are the quickest ways to recover. In a short amount of time, the minimal discomfort will reveal softer, smoother skin making you look younger and more rejuvenated.
