The Process

Chemical peels involve applying a chemical solution to the skin which, after a day or so, begins to peel off. This process is used on the face, but also on the neck, chest and hands if needed. Varying strengths of the solutions applied determine whether you will have a light or medium peeling. After the skin loosens and falls away, new skin is allowed to appear from underneath. The removal of dead skin cells stimulates the production of new skin cells. You will see a dramatic difference in skin color, texture and tone. The skin feels softer, smoother and has a healthy glow to it.


Chemical peels are especially effective in erasing fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth, for smoothing areas of rough skin, evening out pigmentation and age spots, eliminating small scars, and improving tone and texture. The total time in the office for this procedure is approximately 30 minutes. Peeling after the treatment is normal, and may last for 3-5 days. Be sure to protect the treated area from the sun by staying indoors or by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen.
