Chemical peels are deep exfoliation treatments which smooth the upper layers of the skin with the use a chemical or an acid. Chemical peels have been performed for many years and are very common amongst those who have skin concerns. Glycolic acid (AHA) is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin and contributes to enhanced skin hydration, smoothes fine lines and improves the skin’s texture and tone. Glycolic acid peels are great anti-aging treatments that help the skin to regenerate itself. Glycolic acid is a popular chemical peel amongst young adults and those who want to brighten the skin.
Salicylic chemical peels are often used to control breakout prone skins. Salicylic acid (BHA) is a beta hydroxy acid which is an oil soluble solution that helps oily prone skin by dissolving bacteria. Salicylic acid peels also promote cutaneous shedding as well as dissolving black-heads and white-heads.
Salicylic chemical peels are also popular for mature skins who want to regenerate the skin on a deeper level than what is typically achieved with microdermabrasion treatment or glycolic peels. By stimulating cutaneous shedding, we are able to exfoliate the deep layers of the skin which improves fine lines, pigmentation and wrinkles. Salicylic chemical peels are safe for all skin types.
Chemical peels can effectively improve:
• Blackheads and Whiteheads
• Fine lines
• Rough skin texture
• Uneven skin tone
• Dull skin
Glycolic, Salicylic and Lactic acid Chemical peels are available in various concentrations and combinations. The intensity level will vary depending on your particular skin concern. A Chemical peel is often combined with laser skin treatments for best results. We may recommend starting with a chemical peel before laser treatment to ensure proper laser penetration. We also carry a wide range of laser treatments which also improve skin texture, pigmentation or uneven skin tone as well as fine lines and dull skins. Combination therapy may be recommended however, if you are new to cosmetic skin treatments, we do recommend coming in for a complimentary, no obligation consultation with us.
