What is a Chemical Peel?

Medical-grade chemical peels produce healthier, more youthful-looking skin. Men and women can improve their skin’s overall texture and tone with a simple, in-office visit. Chemical peels come in a variety of strengths from light to medium to deep and can be customized based on your individual needs and aesthetic goals.

How Does It Work?

Chemical peels utilize a proven acid peel approach to remove damaged layers of skin. The process triggers your body’s natural self-healing mode and promotes faster cellular turnover. Your skin care specialist carefully monitors the progress of your treatment throughout ensuring only the topmost layers of damaged tissue is removed.

Am I A Good Candidate?

Patients with mild to moderate signs of aging may benefit from chemical peels. Your treatment can be customized to address fine lines, wrinkles, poor skin tone, acne scars, and more. Medical-grade peels can also improve oily or acne-prone skin.

How Long Does Treatment Take?*

Treatment times can vary based on the peel you’ve enlisted. Most peels do not take longer than 30 minutes to perform. Most patients tolerate the procedure very well and report a slight tingling or burning sensation.

What Results Will I See?*

Your skin will feel immediately firmer and tighter after your appointment. However, chemical peels are designed to work on a long-term level through enhanced collagen and peptide production. Depending on the strength of the peel, you can expect optimal results anywhere from 2-weeks to 2-months post-treatment.

Is There Any Downtime?

Light peels often require no downtime allowing you to return to your normal schedule immediately. You may need to take a week or so off from work with deeper peels for more severe concerns. The great thing about chemical peels is you have the option to undergo a single more invasive treatment, or a series of milder treatments to achieve your desired results.
