What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels can help rejuvenate your skin and leave you with a smoother, more youthful appearance. Chemical facial peels are ideal for people who are looking to increase cell turnover and who are interested in achieving a more luminous and radiant face.
Chemical peels work by introducing active ingredients to the skin, designed to penetrate and loosen the bonds between skin cells, increasing cell turnover, and revealing younger looking skin. Both alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), as well as retinoids, can be used to achieve the results of a facial peel. Typically, which product is used depends on what the main objective of the peel is; whether it is the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, lightening of hyperpigmentation, or the clearing of acne.
Is a chemical peel good for the skin?

What happens during a chemical peel?
Chemical peels procedure is simple and takes about a half hour. It includes a pre-peel cleanser to remove any trace of makeup or oil from the skin. The area will also be wiped with acetone alcohol to prevent uneven penetration. Chemical peels are applied in three simple steps. Step 1 is applied in 2-3 layers, depending on the desired penetration rate, and then left to air dry on the skin for about 10 minutes. Step 2 will then be applied and allowed to dry for about 5 minutes. Step 3 is applied last, and also left to dry for about 5 minutes.
What do I do after a chemical peel?
Chemical facial peels do require some special post-procedure care. After your treatment, you will be given a zinc oxide ointment that should be applied both immediately after your peel, as well as throughout the day as the face feels dry or tight. It is important not to pick at the face as it sheds old cells and heals.
