Customized chemical peels help restore skin tone, texture and radiance. Chemical peels revitalize your skin, open clogged pores and improve superficial fine imperfections.
At Essential Aesthetics Med Spa, our medical grade chemical peels exfoliate and stimulate your skin to correct common conditions like fine lines, sun damage, irregular pigmentation, enlarged pores, congested skin, acne and blemishes.
In a comfortable, convenient appointment, the medical aestheticians at Essential Aesthetics Med Spa choose from several options including glycolic acid, salicylic acid, Jessner’s peels or TCA peels, depending on your skin type and condition.
Chemical peels are sometimes combined with microdermabrasion, or used as part of a medical therapeutic facial.
Chemical Peel Benefits
A chemical peel is a skin resurfacing procedure. It lifts away the top dead skin layers, and stimulates deeper skin cells to produce collagen and elastin. The most popular chemical peels are derived from natural fruit acids (called Alpha Hydroxy Acids or AHAs). Chemical peels can be used on the face, neck, decolletage, or back of the hands.
The benefits of a chemical peel include:
- Improve the texture of the skin
- Make the skin feel smoother
- Improve dark discolouration such age spots, freckles and melasma
- Reduce fine lines around the mouth and under the eyes
- Improve fine wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
- Treat certain types of acne
- Improve the appearance of mild acne scars
- Give the skin a glow and improved luminosity
Why it’s done
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure. Depending on the issues you’re addressing with the procedure, you’ll choose a chemical peel in one of three depths:
- Light chemical peel. A light (superficial) chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis). It’s used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone and dryness. You might have a light peel every two to five weeks.
- Medium chemical peel. A medium chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). It’s used to treat wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin tone. You might need to repeat the procedure to achieve or maintain the desired result.
- Deep chemical peel. A deep chemical peel removes skin cells even deeper. Your doctor might recommend one for deeper wrinkles, scars or precancerous growths. You won’t need repeat procedures to get the full effect.
