Chemical Peels

 What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels use acids and enzymes derived from natural sources to create a liquid with a pH of 1.5 – 4.0. Our skins natural pH is between 4.5 – 5.5. When a chemical peel is applied to the skin it starts a process which breaks down the protein bonds between our skin cells, causing them to flake and/or peel away from where the chemical peel is applied. This forces our bodies to start a healing process where new skin cells (collagen & elastin) are produced leading to the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration, rough texture and loss of elasticity to diminish.

 What to expect

Depending on your skin type and concerns we will choose a chemical peel with a suited pH, acids and/or enzymes to your specific needs. during your treatment you can expect to feel heat and tingling in the area which the chemical peel is applied. We use a number scale to determine the intensity at which you feel the peel. For more intense peels fanning of the skin can be done.

After your treatment the skin may experience redness and swelling depending on the level of peel used. 3-7 days skin begins to flake and/or peel

The skin will be sensitive to heat, sun and touch. We advise staying indoors as much as possible for the first 24-72 hours to avoid adverse affects. Nothing is to be applied to the treated area for at least 12 – 24 hours post treatment depending on the peel used. If the peel is self neutralizing water and/or product could reactivate the peel.
