What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical Peels are a non-surgical treatment that utilizes a controlled chemical solution to exfoliate the skin's outer layers. This process works by gently dissolving dead skin cells, stimulating the growth of new, healthier cells, and revealing a smoother, clearer complexion. Here's a closer look at the technology behind it:

  • Chemical Solutions: Different peels utilize various acids at varying strengths. Common acids include glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Each acid targets specific depths of the skin for customized results.
  • Exfoliation Process: The chosen acid solution is applied to the skin, causing a controlled breakdown of the targeted layers. Depending on the peel strength, this may involve slight tingling or burning.
  • Cellular Regeneration: As the damaged layers peel away, the skin triggers the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that provide youthful firmness and elasticity to the skin.
  • New Skin Formation: Following the peel, new, healthier skin cells begin to grow on the surface, resulting in a smoother, brighter, and more even-toned appearance.

Chemical Peels offer a controlled and targeted approach to skin rejuvenation, making them suitable for addressing a variety of concerns.
