Chemical peels are a popular dermatological procedure that helps improve the skin’s texture and appearance. This procedure consists of applying a chemical solution to exfoliate the skin, unveiling a smoother layer beneath. Used on the face, neck, and hands, they target wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scars. Results appear after the skin heals in about a week and can last for months, depending on the peel type and skin condition.
There are three types of chemical peels: Basic, Intermediate, and Deep peels. Basic peels are mild and target the outermost layer of the skin, making them ideal for individuals new to the treatment or those with sensitive skin. Intermediate peels penetrate deeper and address more pronounced skin issues, while Deep peels offer the most intensive treatment, reaching the innermost layers of the skin.

A chemical peel can benefit anyone who wants to improve their skin’s texture, tone, and appearance. However, it’s essential to consult with a skincare professional to determine the best peel for your skin type and concerns.
Results typically become visible after the skin has fully healed, which can take several days to a week, depending on the type of peel.
How long results last varies based on the type of peel and individual skin conditions, but they generally last for months.
There might be some redness, peeling, or slight discomfort after the treatment, but these are temporary. Following post-treatment care instructions is crucial to ensure optimal results and minimize side effects.
Before the treatment, avoid sun exposure and certain skincare products. After the peel, keep the skin moisturized, avoid direct sunlight, and refrain from using harsh products until the skin has fully healed.
As the chemical solution is applied, you may feel a slight tingling or burning sensation. This sensation is temporary, and our experienced estheticians ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible.
