Even with a diligent at-home skin care routine, congestion and dullness can become a concern.
WHAT IT DOES
Chemical peel treatments can boost skin tone, texture and radiance for a smooth, clear and refreshed complexion. They can take topical skin care to the next level by reducing congestion and the appearance of fine lines, lightening hyperpigmentation and age spots, smoothing rough skin and restoring your skin’s natural glow.
HOW IT WORKS
Chemical peel treatments involve chemical solutions that are applied to the skin to slough off the uppermost layer of the skin, ridding your complexion of dead skin cells, revealing fresh skin underneath.
One week prior to receiving a chemical peel, discontinue the use of all retinoid, benzoyl peroxide and hydroquinone products.
WHAT TO EXPECT
HOW IT FEELS
Despite the name, when properly and safely administered, a chemical peel is very tolerable and requires no numbing or sedation.
Approximately 30-45 minutes.
Some may experience mild dryness, redness or peeling after treatment, which is to be expected after exfoliating the surface of the skin in this way. Depending on the peel, most activities may be resumed immediately following this treatment. Sun exposure, however, should be limited while the skin is healing.
Full results are seen up to ten days post-treatment. A series of 4-6 treatments at two-week intervals, with regular maintenance treatments, is recommended for optimal results.
