Essential for maintaining & restoring skin’s health and appearance
Performed by our skilled aestheticians, these exfoliating treatments help resurface the uppermost layer of the skin to reveal new, healthy skin underneath. Chemical peels can be used as part of your regular skincare maintenance or to address specific concerns.
Available in a variety of formulations and concentrations to target various skin concerns including fine lines, blemishes, enlarged pores and uneven skin tone.
WHAT ARE CHEMICAL PEELS?
Chemical peels work by exfoliating the skin’s surface to reduce the appearance of blemishes – smooth skin texture, improve radiance, and restore skin health. They are effective at increasing cell turnover and improving the appearance on the surface of the skin.
Chemical peels come in many different strengths and acidic formulations ranging from superficial to higher penetrating peels. Some common acids in chemical peels are alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), and trichloroacetic acid (TCA).
The SkinCeuticals™ Smart TCA Peel is formulated with 15% TCA and 3% glycolic acid to improve the look of fine to moderate wrinkles and discoloration.
WHO ARE CHEMICAL PEELS FOR?
The depth and type of chemical peel used depends on the condition of the skin, the type of skin and the skincare habits of the client. For extremely sensitive skin and skin experiencing barrier dysfunction (eczema, psoriasis, etc), chemical peels are generally not recommended.
WHAT TYPE OF CHEMICAL PEEL IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Superficial peels penetrate only the uppermost layer of the skin. They are often performed in a series to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. SkinCeuticals chemical peels, cover a wide array of skin types and concerns and mostly fall into the superficial chemical peels category.
HOW DO CHEMICAL PEELS WORK?
Chemical peels improve the texture and appearance of the skin by sloughing off the outer layers of the skin. They are effective facial treatments for improving blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin tone.
The goal is to create a controlled, safe injury to the skin, thereby prompting skin to naturally repair itself and reveal brighter skin.
The action of a professional chemical peel far outweighs the effect of an exfoliating scrub or brush. Best of all, chemical peels are appropriate for nearly everyone. It is a matter of knowing which chemical is best for your skin type and concerns.
WHAT WILL I EXPERIENCE DURING A CHEMICAL PEEL?
Even a superficial chemical peel may produce a tingling sensation on the skin. However, this mild discomfort will typically subside once the peel solution has been neutralized. A superficial peel can produce some redness, similar to a mild sunburn, which may last 3 to 5 days. Immediately after a chemical peel, skin becomes more photosensitive. It is absolutely necessary that a broad spectrum sunscreen is applied and used consistently post treatment.
WHEN SHOULD I GET A CHEMICAL PEEL?
The SkinCeutical Peels can become part of an ongoing monthly skin maintenance program and can be combined with a targeted home care regimen to enhance results.
