It’s best to acclimate the skin before having a peel. Peels help with texture, smoothness, pore size and skin firmness. We offer controlled peels where there is no actual peeling but it has the same benefits as other peels. The skin is then recovered with an anti-inflammatory corrective treatment. Anti-inflammatory treatment designed to calm, bacteriacide, soothe the skin, and remove redness and sensitivity. The client must not be exposed to the sun for 48 hours following a peel.
Chemical Peels are designed to optimize your skin. We use a wide range of peels ranging from mild peels to deeper, higher strength chemical peels such as AHA, salicylic acid, TCA, Jessner’s peels and mandelic acid peels. Our clinical aestheticians will assess your skin to determine what peel suits your skin’s needs. These peels remain on the skin from 2-5 minutes and require little to no downtime, allowing you to return to your normal daily activities straight away. You are able to see immediate results, including tighter, brighter skin and a youthful glow. Depending on the severity of your skin’s condition, a deeper chemical peel may be needed for your skin to achieve your goals. These peels usually require some downtime for healing. These options will be discussed with you in your initial consultation.
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damaged skin
- Active acne and acne scars
- Excessive oil production
- Large pores/oily skin
- Brown spots/age spots
The results from chemical peels are cumulative. Although you will see results with one peel, we recommend a series of six for best results. Generally, peels are done two to three weeks apart. As dead cells are removed, new ones migrate to the upper epidermis on a 28-30 day cycle, so it is perfectly alright to receive the 2 minute peels on a monthly basis for optimum maintenance.
