Frequently Asked Questions | Chemical Peel
How does it work?
Peel treatments improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels even out skin tone, improve acne- prone skin and reduce the appearance of pore size.
An acid is applied to the skin to lower the pH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin cells to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate new collagen.
How long is each session?
When will I see results?
Some people notice results immediately. For some, it can take up to a week to notice an improvement.
Is this treatment safe?
Yes, when performed by a fully certified medical esthetician or a doctor.
Does it hurt?
No. Some people may find the procedure mildly itchy to spicy or feel nothing at all. Treatment may cause slight redness, tightness, peeling, flaking or temporary dryness. Most patients do not find it necessary to apply makeup as the skin will be smooth, dewy and radiant following their peel.
How do I prepare for my treatment?
Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least 2 weeks prior to treatment. Avoid the use of retinol products (eg. Retinol, Retin A, Tazorac) high levels of AHA and BHA products for approximately 7 day prior to treatment. Consult your physician before temporarily discounting the use of any medication. For best results it is suggested to use the same skincare line as you peel 14 days prior to treatment.
