FAQ – Chemical Facial Peels

What is a Chemical Facial Peels and what can it do for me?

A facial peel is a cosmetic, chemical treatment that helps lessen the appearance of blemishes, freckles, age spots, light scarring, and any number of other skin irregularities on the face. Also called chemical peels, facial peels can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and give new life to sun-damaged skin. Peels are available at various depths depending on your desired outcome, working underneath the skin to achieve amazing results. Your skin will feel smoother and softer after the first treatment and will gradually improve as new skin cells form.   Facial peels improve skin texture for the softer and smoother complexion of younger, healthier looking skin..

What are the different types of facial peels available?

Glycolic peels – these are mild formula peels which can be incorporated into a beauty routine for brighter looking, smoother skin.

TCA Peels – these are deeper, stronger peels and a course of these can improve surface wrinkles and blemishes

What results can I expect from Facial peels?

With all types of peels, you can expect a smoother, brighter complexion.

If you have a stronger formulation your skin will gradually peel for a short while and you might not see any results for approximately 6 weeks.  During this time you would need to protect your skin from the sun and it is advisable to continue doing so to maintain results.

Are there any risks or complications?

Some side effects can be peeling, blanching or discoloration.  Most of this depends on the depth of the peel, so you will probably need a series of peels to get the best results.  The first peel should be less intense with little or no burning or side effects, and then you can go up to a higher strength from there as your provider feels is safe and necessary.  Protecting and taking care of your “new” skin afterwards is imperative, so use sunscreen and follow any post procedures with each peel you have done

How much do Peels cost?
