How Does It Work?
Chemical peels are facial treatments made of different nutrients and acids. The most common are glycolic peels, but there are also trichloroacetic, lactic, carbolic, and salicylic peels. These safe components act as exfoliating agents, ridding your skin of dead cells and debris.
What Can I Expect?
Mild peels offer a nice radiance and glow with no downtime. The best part of choosing a mild peel is that it can be repeated every four weeks until the best results are reached. Medium and deep chemical peels can cause some irritation including slight swelling, redness, and sensitivity. Afterward, your skin will peel over several days.
What Kind Of Results Can I Expect To See?
This exfoliation process is completely normal, but if you have any concerns, you are always welcome to reach out to us. As your skin goes through its renewal process, you’ll need to avoid direct sunlight for several months after a chemical peel since your new skin will be fragile and prone to irritation.

A derivative of aspirin, salicylic acid, falls in the category of beta hydroxy acids, or BHAs. Salicylic acid is an exfoliant and has anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties. Salicylic acid can penetrate the pores of the skin, which is why it’s often used in products that treat acne lesions, including whiteheads and blackheads. Salicylic acid peels are a great option to treat skin affected by acne.
Mandelic acid is popular for the treatment of wrinkles and acne. Part of the alpha hydroxyl family of natural ingredients. Mandelic acid is derived from sugar cane and is a fruit acid. When applied to the skin, it helps to remove the “glue” that holds the older, rougher, and dryer skin on the surface. When it removes that top layer of skin, the fresh, new layer is visible. It’s this layer that is without damage and looks fresh.
