This rejuvenating treatment involves the use of a topical exfoliating solution. Applied to the skin, chemical peels remove the dead and damaged outer layers of skin to expose the soft, healthy and radiant skin beneath. Chemical peels come in a variety of strengths and can be individualized for you specific skin care needs.
After the skin is cleansed, the exfoliation peel solution will be applied to the skin. The reaction of the individual will determine how many layers are applied. After the chemical peel treatment, you will leave dewy and hydrated. Your skin will be glowing.
Some clients feel a slight tingling sensation when the solution is applied.
A chemical peel takes 30-45 minutes depending on the strength of the peel and how many layers are applied.
Most clients do not experience any symptoms after the chemical peel. A post-peel home care pack and instructions are given to each client. A light flaking or peeling of the skin may be noticed 3-5 days post-peel.
Treatments can be performed every 14 days, depending on the strength of the peel. Chemical peels are most effective when performed as part of a regular maintenance program.
