Chemical Peels

  One of the main factors affecting skin health is the process of
  cellular regeneration, or the speed at which dead skin cells are
  replaced by new ones. As we age, this process naturally slows down,
  resulting in duller, less healthy looking skin. A chemical peel is one
  of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. The
  procedure is quick, with minimum discomfort and downtime.
  How it works

  Chemical peels loosen the bonds that hold dead skin cells together,
  allowing dead skin to slough off and reveal the softer, smoother skin
  underneath.

  Chemical peels can improve the appearance of:
  • Acne or acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Irregular pigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Rough or scaly patches
  • Dark spots ( Melasma )

Types of chemical peels

We offer a variety of peeling solutions for all skin types, including
  peels safe for acne-prone or sensitive skin. Dr Casal or any of our
  certified Aesthetitians will determine the best strength and formula
  for your individual needs based on your skin condition and available
  recovery time.

  • Light chemical peels remove the outer layer of the skin with a
  light exfoliation, resulting in a healthier glow. Your doctor will use
  a combination of mild alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids to
  address uneven pigment, dry skin, or fine wrinkles.
  • Medium chemical peels are ideal for patients with acne scars,
  deeper wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. The chemicals used will remove
  skin cells from both the outer layer of the skin and the upper part of
  the middle skin layer.
  • Deep chemical peels offer the most dramatic results, but
  require a longer recovery period. Deep chemical peels can help improve
  the appearance of deeper facial wrinkles, sun damage, blotchy area, or
  even pre-cancerous growths.

Treatment and recovery

  During a chemical peel, the chemical solution is applied to clean skin
  and left for up to 10 minutes. You may feel a slight stinging
  sensation. The chemical solution is then washed off and neutralized.

  Depending on the strength of your peel, your skin may turn red or
  brown following the procedure and you may experience some peeling. It
  may take no down time or up to six weeks for your skin to return to
  normal.
