Chemical peels are one of the most popular services in medical aesthetics for people who want to make their skin look younger.

This non-invasive method can help with wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. Our medical aesthetics experts can do a chemical peel in less than an hour.

Types of chemical peels

After looking at your skin, a modern medical aesthetics specialist will suggest the best peel type and strength.

The results vary depending on the chemical solution used. Each chemical peel hurts the skin, causing a layer of skin to peel off to reveal new skin underneath. Your end goal determines which chemical you use. You and your dermatologist will decide the extent of your peel.

  • Light Chemical Peel

A light chemical peel is often used to treat acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone or texture. After a short time, the peel takes the skin off by neutralizing it or washing it. You can use it once every few weeks to keep your skin healthy with little pain or downtime.

  • Medium Chemical Peel

Medium chemical peels only reach the epidermis and the superficial dermal layers. This technique removes mild wrinkles, acne scars, discolorations, and age spots. It encourages the skin to make new, healthy cells, collagen, and elastin. This makes the skin look younger and tighter. This procedure takes about a week and can repeat every few months.

  • Deep Chemical Peel

Deep chemical peels cause more downtime because they affect the dermis layer. Even though you may only need this peel twice or three times a year. It effectively treats deeper wrinkles, scars, and actinic keratosis.

Your skin’s health and appearance will improve as it heals, with a more even texture and tone and a healthier, more youthful sheen.

How it works?

Chemical peels are a type of exfoliation that removes the top layer of skin with a nutrient- and acid-rich solution. We use a variety of solution strengths to achieve the desired depth of peel for your skin. The ingredients in the peel temporarily change the pH level of your skin, which removes dead skin cells and helps your skin heal. 

The body’s natural healing processes fix the inner layers of skin, making the outer layer healthier and more radiant. It also aids in pore unclogging, which improves subsequent skincare absorption.
