CHEMICAL PEEL

Chemical peels come in many different strengths and acidic formulations ranging from superficial to higher penetrating peels. Some common acids in chemical peels are alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), and trichloroacetic acid (TCA). AHAs are often used to treat signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven texture. BHAs are often used to treat problematic skin concerns such as blemishes, large pores and uneven texture. TCA is often used to treat more advanced visible signs of aging and discoloration caused by sun damage, acne, or hormones. The SkinCeuticals Smart TCA Peel is formulated with 15% TCA and 3% glycolic acid to improve the look of moderate to advancing fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A chemical peel is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses a chemical solution to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. This can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and other skin imperfections by promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells.

Chemical peels are generally considered safe when performed by a trained professional. However, as with any procedure, there is a small risk of complications such as infection, scarring, or discoloration of the skin.

The frequency of chemical peel treatments will vary depending on your individual needs and goals, but most people receive treatments every four to six weeks.

During the treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin. You may feel a slight burning or stinging sensation during the procedure. After the treatment, the skin may be red and slightly swollen for a few days, but these side effects usually subside within a week.

Chemical peels can be used on all skin types, but different types of peels may be more appropriate for certain skin types. It's best to consult with a skincare professional to determine the best type of peel for you.
