Administered by skincare professionals, 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 most effective at enhancing 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.
Superficial peels penetrate only the uppermost layer of the epidermis. 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. The Glycolic or salicylic micropeel is formulated to gently exfoliate skin, making it ideal for all skin types, especially those with sensitive skin, and has little-to-no downtime post-procedure.
A medium-depth peel is more effective for patients with moderate skin damage, including age spots, freckles, and actinic keratoses. It is often coupled with laser treatments to maximize effectiveness, ask about our Perfect derma peel to treat more aggressively.
Just after one treatment you will notice a difference. However, depending on your skin type multiple sessions may be necessary. We recommend 2-3 treatments every month for the optimal skin tone and texture.
Once the solution has been applied to the skin, the appearance of the treated area will appear dark red like a sunburn.
