A medical-grade chemical peel can offer several benefits for your skin, depending on your specific concerns and goals:
Fresh-Faced Renewal: Chemical peels remove dull and damaged skin cells from the surface of your skin, promoting exfoliation. This helps to reveal fresher, smoother skin and improves overall skin texture.
Spotlight on Even Skin: Chemical peels can address hyperpigmentation issues, such as sunspots, age spots, and melasma. The peeling process can lighten dark spots and even out skin tone.
Blemish Banisher: Chemical peels can be effective in treating certain types of acne and improving the appearance of acne scars. They help unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and promote a clearer complexion.
Youthful Vibes: The stimulation of collagen production during and after a chemical peel leads to firmer, plumper skin, and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Skincare Synergy: After a chemical peel, your skin is better prepared to absorb skincare products, allowing them to penetrate more deeply and be more effective.

What To Expect
Undergoing a medical-grade chemical peel can vary depending on the type and depth of the peel, as well as individual differences in skin sensitivity and tolerance. Here's a general overview of what the experience is like:
1. Consultation: Your journey begins with a consultation where your provider will listen to your concerns and formulate a plan based upon your unique skin type and goals. Your provider will determine the most appropriate type and strength of chemical peel for your skin.
2. Preparation: Prior to your appointment, you’ll want to prepare your skin for the peel in the days leading up to the procedure. Avoid skincare products with active ingredients or medications that could increase skin sensitivity.
3. Procedure: Your provider will clean your skin thoroughly and apply the chemical solution evenly. The peel solution is left on the skin for a specific amount of time, during which you may experience a tingling or burning sensation. The duration of the procedure can vary depending on the type of peel.
4. Aftercare: Following the peel, your skin will need special care. We will provide you with specific instructions on post-peel skincare, including the use of gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and sun protection. It's crucial to avoid sun exposure during the healing process.
5. Downtime: The downtime varies depending on the depth of the peel. Superficial peels may result in minimal downtime, while deeper peels may require a week or more for the skin to fully heal. During this time, you may experience redness, peeling, and some swelling.
