Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are used to improve and smooth the texture of skin. Although chemical peels are most frequently used on the face, we can apply them anywhere on the body. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which creates a reaction, and the “old” skin eventually peels off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. 

Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck or hands. They can be used to:

  • Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
  • Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
  • Improve the appearance of mild scars
  • Treat certain types of acne
  • Reduce age spots, freckles and dark spots (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
  • Improve the look and feel of skin
  • Overall rejuvenation

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Typically, 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended for optimal results. 

What Happens During a Chemical Peel?

During a chemical peel, our Aestheticians apply a small amount of a chemical solution to the skin for a specific amount of time. This causes damage to the top layers of dead skin to shed revealing healthier, younger looking skin.
