Chemical Peels

For Firmer, Smoother, Brighter and Clearer Skin

I wasn’t such a proponent after the peeling craze of the early 2000’s but peels have come a long way! Designer chemical peels reign offering exfoliants combining various acids, enzymes and antioxidants to create amazing change in the skin. There is a peel for every skin type. Some have no downtime and some are known to make the skin peel.

Why peel? Whether you want to Firm, Smooth, Brighten or Clear your skin…or enjoy all those benefits, chemical peels may be the answer for you.

Post Peel Care

Most acid peels work, in the most basic sense, by wounding the skin. The acids used cause the surface cells to break apart from each other and slough off. This speeds the rate of cellular turnover and encourages regeneration of new skin. This is why peels make the skin firmer, smoother, brighter and clearer.

For successful chemical peel results, post peel care is as follows:

AVOID’s:

#1 Year round, avoid sun exposure and definitely no tanning beds for 2 weeks post peel.

#2 Wear a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher every day for a minimum of 2 weeks post peel. Reapply every 2 hours throughout the day. Yes…even when it looks gray and cloudy outside.

#3 Avoid heat and steam 24-72 hours post peel. This includes everything from a sweating to hot showers to saunas and hot tubs.

#4 Avoid hair removal by waxing or depilatory for 3-5 days post peel.

#5 Avoid laser treatments, microdermabrasion and dermaplaning for 3 weeks post peel.

#6 Avoid swimming, saunas and hot tubs for 7 days post peel.

DO NOT’s:

#1 Do not vigorously rub the skin.

#2 Do not use a mechanical scrub.

#3 Do not pick at any flaking or sloughing, as this can cause scarring.

Don’t wait. Cooler, darker months are best for peels! Schedule today.
