How can chemical peel give you a glowing and healthy appearance?

The environment play an important part to our skin condition as temperature gets cooler there is less humidity in the air, which results in your skin drying out and becoming vulnerable to flaking and itchiness. Heated environments including your car, office and home exacerbate this water loss. You can help your skin stay glowing and healthy through staying well hydrated by drinking plenty of water, controlling inflammation, exfoliating and using good quality skincare. Adding chemical peel treatment to your routine to keep your skin look more radiant.  Chemical peels are an effective way to regenerate, resurface and refresh the skin.

How long is the recovery after chemical peel?

We use a superficial/light peel. To exfoliates the top layer of skin, called the epidermis. This eliminates accumulated dead skin cells.

Light peels are mild and use gluconolactone, lactic acid​ & salicylic acid. The procedure is so simple and easy, people often refer to them as "lunchtime peels." In general, the peeling process takes 2 - 3 days to complete. The downtime is almost non-existent.  Avoid direct sun exposure and apply all in one shied (no chemical) SPF 50 every morning. 

Is chemical peel good for skin?

Yes, it is. superficial peels treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone, and dry skin. As a result, chemical peels promote the growth of a new healthy top skin layer.

What should I expect during treatment?

Procedures may vary dependent on the type of chemical peel chosen. Skin is prepped using a degreaser to ensure the treated area is free of any oils left on the skin. The chemical agent is then applied and typically remains on the skin for 3 to 9 minutes. Usually, feel a mild stinging which is temporary and usually subsides after a few minutes. However, cryotherapy is use during the treatment to prevent discomfort. 

Why did I not have any visible peeling after my peel?

The success of the peel should not be judged by the amount of peeling, but by the end results that the peel will produce. The amount of peeling may vary depending on individual skin condition at the time of the peel or the depth of the peel. Regardless of the degree of peeling, the skin is still sloughing off at an accelerated rate, resulting in the improvement of skin tone and texture and an improvement of fine lines.

What products or procedures should I avoid before a chemical peel?

One week before the peel avoid waxing, electrolysis, deploritory creams, and laser hair removal.
Two to three days before the peel discontinue using any prescription topicals such as Retin-A, as well as any products containing retinol, alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA), beta hydroxyl acids (BHA) or benzoyl peroxide.
Clients who have had any medical cosmetic facial treatments or procedures such as Laser treatments, cosmetic fillers or other surgical procedures should wait until skin sensitivity has completely resolved before receiving a peel.
