What is a Chemical Peel?
A skin peel is a science-based treatment that, when properly administered, offers one of the most powerful non-surgical skin improvements available. At Art of Skin Care, highly specialized naturally occurring acids and enzyme solutions are applied to remove damaged layers of cells from the skin's outer surface—revealing more glowing, youthful skin. Our skin peels feature only the purest, highest grade ingredients, for optimum results that are naturally scientific.
How Does a Skin Peel Improve The Skin?
By removing cellular buildup and stimulating skin regeneration, a skin peel offers visible and measurable improvement in reducing wrinkles, fine lines, pore size, and oil production while clearing blemishes and improving the skin's texture, tone, and hydration—for a more vibrant skin appearance. Skin peels may be especially beneficial in the treatment of hyper-pigmentation, rosacea, acne, sun damage, and photo aging.
What Can I expect After My Skin Peel?
While it is impossible to predict exactly what may happen to the skin, listed below is a general description of what to anticipate after a light to mid-depth peel.
- Immediately following the treatment the skin will be very smooth and tight.
- There may be a color change - pink to red the first day and then a brown tone until peeling occurs.
- The skin will generally begin flaking in 2-3 days; however, flaking can take place anytime for the next 7-10 days.
- Exfoliation varies from person to person and from peel to peel. Flaking may vary from mild, hardly visible to heavy continuous peeling. Do not be concerned how much you actually peel. The skin does not always visibly peel. It may take 2-3 treatments for this to happen. There are many refining benefits even if there is no visible flaking.
At Art of Skin Care, our treatments are highly specialized and individualized. Before your first treatment your skin care needs will be assessed to determine the most beneficial formulation, application technique and post peel regimen. A variety of skin peels are available. Below is just a small sampling of our most popular peeling treatments.
