What is a Light Chemical Peel?
Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), Betahydroxy acids (BHAs) light or “lunch hour” peels include glycolic, lactic, retinol, salicylic and/or trichloroacetic acids.
Chemical peels improve skin texture, brighten your complexion, minimize pore size, balance skin pigmentation as well as treat acne and acne scarring. They exfoliate the outer most layer of skin to smooth out fine lines, wrinkles and/or rough dry skin.
Our chemical peels are characterized by light to moderate penetration of the outer layers of damaged skin, with minimal to no discomfort and minimal to no risk of scarring or downtime. The deep peels of the past are outdated procedures due to lengthy downtime and unpredictable results. Light to medium peels, however, are an excellent tool for rejuvenating the skin. They help restore your skin’s natural glow.
How is a Light Chemical Peel Performed?
All chemical peels involve applying a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin so that a smoother, more evenly pigmented, glowing layer of skin can appear. It helps stimulate the production of new skin cells. They are often repeated every few weeks for 4-6 sessions to achieve the desired results.
What Light Chemical Peels Treat:
- Acne & Acne Scars
- Sun Damage
- Fine Lines
- Age Spots
- Dull Skin
What to Expect:
Typically, one can expect a small degree of slight stinging during the procedure, which lasts 2 to 10 minutes. Afterwards, chemical peels generally cause some flaking, redness and dryness, or skin irritation. These side effects diminish over time. Once the body heals itself naturally, the outer layer of skin will fall away.
