Our skin, composed in layers of millions of cells, is a living organ. Every day, thousands of skin cells are shed from the surface and are replaced with healthy, new cells. As we age, the skin renewal process slows down and becomes less precise, causing the accumulation of dead skin cells on the surface where they are not efficiently shed. This inefficiency results in a lifeless, dull complexion. The purpose of a chemical peel is to facilitate the controlled shedding of damaged cells in the various layers of skin in an even, precise manner for optimum results.
How it works
In the chemical peel process, a fresh new layer of skin with a smoother texture and even color is exposed. In addition, new cell growth is stimulated by the peel, thereby giving the skin a fresh glow and a more youthful appearance. Our aesthetician uses a variety of effective, safe, and naturally-derived peeling substances to treat the skin, depending on the needs of each patient. We offer a variety of effective chemical peels, each of which improves the skin texture, color, and helps to diminish acne pimples.
What to expect
Chemical peels can be applied to the face, hands, chest, and back. Peels can be done alone of purchased in a series of 4-6 treatments performed every 2-6 weeks. Combining peels with therapeutic facials is also beneficial for many patients. Depending upon your individual skin type and specific skin problems, our aesthetician will design a customized program just for you.
