A Chemical Peel is a noninvasive dermatologic procedure to improve skin texture, complexion, revealing a smoother and younger look. If you are looking for a way to refresh and rejuvenate your skin, chemical peel is for you!
The chemical peel treatment involves the application of a diluted acid to the skin to remove the skin’s superficial layer, promoting cellular regeneration and boosting collagen production, among other benefits.
The procedure can be done on the face, neck and decollete, depending on your desired outcome. The chemical solution can vary in intensity to match your skin type, beauty concerns, and needs. After the treatment, depending on the intensity, the skin will appear red and will start flaking and peeling, which is normal and part of the expected process. Bit by bit the old skin will come off, revealing a younger and radiant complexion!

The first step is to come in for a consultation with our skin specialist to evaluate your skin type and concerns, and recommend the best peeling for you.
The chemical peel procedure starts by carefully cleansing the skin, removing all superficial impurities. The diluted acid is applied to the area you want to treat so it can penetrate and gently exfoliate it. After a specific time of activation, the peel solution is neutralized to stop the reaction.
Procedure length: 45 min to 1h and 30 min
Chemical peel can cause slight redness or swelling immediately after, but it usually goes away in the next 24 hours. It is expected to experience temporary skin discoloration, scabbing, flaking, alongside with the natural peel. There can be some crusting if the skin is sensitive, although it is rare, and you can apply Aquaphor to the affected area.
If any condition persists after 24 hours contact your esthetician immediately.
