Skin is the largest organ of the human body and is composed of multiple skin layers responsible for it’s health and function. Each layer has a specific function and contributes to the overall visible appearance of the skin. Chemical peels are a safe and effective treatment regiment designed to rejuvenate skin layers and improve its appearance and health.
To achieve optimal results following a chemical peel treatment, it’s important to find a professional that you trust. Comprehensive skin evaluation with correct diagnosis is the key to success. Once your skin has been identified to be of a particular type and correct diagnosis has established, the next step is to begin designing a chemical peel that will solve the problem.
Chemical peel does not always result in the skin peeling. Peeling is considered a side effect of the treatment rather than a mark of it’s effectiveness. If you don’t peel after your treatment, please be assured that that is absolutely normal response.
Each peel is designed to target specific treatment area in a specific skin layer.
In general, the stronger the peel, the deeper it penetrates the skin, therefore, the recovery time will be a little longer.
