What is a Facial Peel?
A facial peel, also called a chemical peel, is a nonsurgical treatment done to rejuvenate the complexion. Chemical peels can address a wide array of skin conditions, including acne and acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, rough skin, and sun-damaged skin.
Chemical peels are one of our most requested cosmetic procedures and come in a variety of types: superficial, medium, and deep. Our most popular include:
Glycolic Acid Peels
This treatment is a mild peel which removes the aging surface cells from the skin’s upper layers. Superficial concentrations of this mild exfoliating peel vary to achieve your desired result, often within 10-15 minutes, hence the “lunchtime peel” description. A fresher, lighter skin tone with smoother texture is often the result, after a series of peels in increasing strength over 1-3 weekly intervals.
A medium depth peel that frosts away mild skin discolorations, superficial wrinkles, and corrects pigment problems. The treatments take from 5 to 20 minutes, and there is mild discomfort depending upon the peel solution chosen. In several days, the new skin will be apparent.
A deeper peel for more advanced sun damage, discoloration, and surface irregularities.
Overall, recovery time will depend on the type of peel applied; the deeper the peel, the longer the recovery time. With deeper peels, normal activities can be resumed after two weeks.
