What is a Chemical Face Peel?

A chemical peel is a procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back is smoother. With a light or medium peel, you may need to undergo the procedure more than once to get the desired results.

Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, discolored skin and scars — usually on the face. They can be done alone or combined with other cosmetic procedures. And they can be done at different depths, from light to deep.

What are the benefits of a Facial Peel?

  • Improvement in Skin Texture:
    Chemical peels effectively remove dead skin cells, revealing smoother and softer skin.chemical face peel blog
  • Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles:
    Peels stimulate collagen production, leading to firmer and more youthful-looking skin.
  • Treatment of Hyperpigmentation:
    Peels can lighten dark spots and even out skin tone, resulting in a more radiant complexion.
  • Acne Management:
    Chemical peels can help unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and improve acne-prone skin.
  • Enhanced Absorption of Skincare Products:
    By removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, chemical peels enhance the penetration and efficacy of skincare products applied afterward.

Types of Chemical Peel

Light Chemical Peels: Light Exfoliation

These peels utilize mild acids such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), including glycolic acid and lactic acid, to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin. Superficial peels are often referred to as lunchtime peels because they require minimal downtime and are suitable for all skin types.

Medium Chemical Peels: The Perfect Peel

The Perfect Peel is a revolutionary chemical peel that will transform your skin into looking younger, healthier and clearer in just one week. Suitable for all skin types and requiring no pre-peel skin preparation; the peel is a mixture of minerals and vitamins and also a key anti-aging ingredient never before used: Glutathione.

This key ingredient is the ultimate antioxidant. It penetrates deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the anti-aging answer to premature wrinkles.

Our bodies naturally produce glutathione. But, as we age our levels deplete due to sun exposure, air pollutants, environmental stress, and of course, the aging process itself. Over time, glutathione has been proven to reverse melanin’s metabolism, lightening dark pigmentation.

The Perfect Peel will help erase fine lines and wrinkles, reduce enlarged pores, help build collagen and elastin which will help to tighten and firm the skin. In addition, it will reduce or even eliminate Hyper-pigmentation and Melasma.

Acne and acne scars are dramatically improved. The treatment fights free radical damage to remove discoloration due to sun damage and even out overall skin tone and complexion.
