LIGHT CHEMICAL PEELS
Chemical Peels are corrective skin treatments which use chemical acids to remove dead, dull, aged skin cells from the surface of the skin. Chemical peels enhance your skin cell’s turnover rate revealing brighter, smoother, and younger skin. Chemical peels are formulated with different acids to customize the appropriate level of exfoliation for individual skin types and different age groups. Not all chemical peels are aggressive and result in flaking and peeling skin. For improved skin benefits, chemical peels are recommended in a series of 3 to 6 peels.
What are the results after treatment?
Chemical peels improve skin tone, uneven texture and other unsightly surface irregularities. Different peels will differ in depth of exfoliation. The chemical peels performed by our aesthetician are lighter in depth and do not require down time. Patients may experience some minor inflammation and flaking, but this is uncommon for the lighter peels. These lighter peels will improve appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone and texture. Deeper lines, wrinkles and scarring, in addition to severe sun damage, may require a medium-depth or deep Chemical Peel performed by Dr. David Green, depending on how much improvement you desire.
What will I experience during a light chemical peel?
The chemical solutions used differ depending on the type of chemical peel you’re getting. These solutions include alpha hydroxyl acids, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, resorcinol and retinoic acid. The solution for the peel you’re getting will be applied to your face and you may experience a slight stinging sensation. The solution will be removed with a neutralizing solution. Light Chemical peels take about an hour and can be repeated every month.

“The best money I have ever spent! I visited the doctor at the end of last year because of if my acne issue, which bothers me for years. Apply applying the lotion he prescribed, my acne was cured in a month! Maybe my acne starts getting better before I see the doctor but it could not be fully recovered without his help.”
