Chemical peeling is a popular technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. Peels are classified as superficial, medium depth, or deep depending on the chemical used and the application technique. Of the millions of chemical peels performed each year, most are superficial and have no “down time”. Deeper peels produce a greater effect on the skin but require a longer recovery time. A thorough evaluation by your Aesthetician is necessary to determine the correct type of chemical peel program for your individual skin.
Chemical peels are typically used to improve texture and tone of the skin. Fine wrinkles and pigmentation caused by sun damage, aging and hereditary factors can be reduced with this procedure. Certain types of acne also respond very well to chemical peel programs, which ultimately helps achieve smoother skin and correct flaws.
Superficial Peels (Level 1) - 75
If you opt for a peel to get rid of the fine laugh at the corners of your eyes or mouth, or if you have a little bit of blotchiness to your skin you want evened out, a superficial face peel can help. These peels only remove the outer layer of your skin, or the epidermis, resulting in less healing time. They are generally done with a mild chemical solution such as salicylic or glycolic acid. They can be performed on your lunch break, allowing you to return to work immediately. Superficial peels can produce redness following the procedure, with some flaking of the skin for up to five days. It isn't unusual to notice an improvement in your skin's appearance mere hours or days later.
Medium-Depth Peels (Level 2) - 105
When the skin problem is deeper, or past the epidermis skin level, a stronger chemical peel is necessary. Varying strengths of Alpha Hydroxy Acids or Beta Hydroxy Acids are commonly used for medium-level peels. Those who elect this type of peel might have sun or age spots they'd like diminished.
Deep Skin Peels (Level 3) - 150
