CHEMICAL PEELS

Why choose a chemical peel?

A chemical peel enhances and smooths the texture of the skin. It is an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. They exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and color.

How does a chemical peel work?

A chemical solution is applied to the skin to expedite the skin’s natural exfoliation process. The acids within the peel work by chemically loosening the “glue” that binds the dead and damaged cells causing exfoliation and serving to promote new cell growth.

Is there anything I should avoid prior to a peel?

Patients should avoid use of the following products and procedures on the area to be peeled for 5-7 days prior to the peel

  • Laser hair removal
  • Waxing
  • Depilatory Creams
  • Electrolysis
  • Topical retinoids and tretinoin (such as Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, and Refissa
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s), Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), exfoliating masks, retinols, hydroquinone, and benzoyl peroxide acne products.
