SkinCeuticals® Micro Peels
SkinCeuticals® offer a variety of treatments targeted to help reveal smoother, healthier skin by targeting specific areas.
Chemical peels can improve the skins appearance. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Chemical peels can leave your skin looking rejuvenated and glowing!
Frequently Asked Questions about our SkinCeuticals® Treatments
There are three types of Chemical Peels.
A superficial peel involves the use of a mild acid, such as alpha-hydroxy Acid, to gently exfoliate the outer layer of the skin. This treatment is typically used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin while providing a refreshing boost to the face, neck, chest, or hands.
When undergoing a medium peel, a solution containing glycolic or trichloroacetic Acid is applied to penetrate both the outer and middle layers of the skin. This helps to remove damaged skin cells and improve the appearance of age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, and moderate skin discoloration. In addition, this treatment can also help to smooth rough skin and effectively treat certain precancerous skin growths, such as actinic keratosis.
When opting for a deep peel, a solution containing trichloroacetic Acid or phenol is applied to penetrate the middle layer of the skin deeply, effectively removing damaged skin cells. This treatment is specifically designed to remove moderate lines, age spots, freckles, and shallow scars, resulting in a dramatic improvement in skin appearance. It is important to note that this procedure can only be performed once and is exclusively used on the face.
