Chemical Peel

Chemical peelings are affordable popular treatments for a better skin. These peels rejuvenate skin by removing the superficial skin layers, stimulating the production of new healthy cells. The chemical used can vary from case to case, depending in the depth of penetration needed. We have medium depth peels, such as TCA 20% – jessner peel: ideal for superficial lines, 30-50% for pigmentation and actinic keratosis. Blended peels- low depth- for mild sun damage and acne scarring. Deep peels: for severe photo aging, deep wrinkles (used less because they require anesthetic and antibiotic after treatment)

What is a Chemical Peel for?

The main purpose of a chemical peel is to induce a controlled injury to the skin to a specific depth that will allow the removal of dead cells and promote the production of new cells. This will enhance appearance with a glowing and healthy skin that will achieve a tightening effect.

What our experts think

"Chemical peels are most commonly categorized by their depth of skin penetration and the used chemicals may vary depending on concentration, skin conditions, application method, duration of application and formulation. The main objective of this treatment is to produce exfoliation by decreasing the cohesion of corneocytes, increase collagen production, improve signs of photoaging and reduction of acne lesions. Minor side effects could be erythema, stinging/burning sensation, sun sensitivity and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. Before the procedure, patients should be pretreated with desquamating agents to enhance even penetration of peeling agents."
