A chemical peel uses exfoliating solutions such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) or Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to remove damaged or aged layers of skin to reveal the softer, more youthful skin underneath.
Most chemical peel procedures begin with prepping the skin either with skin care treatments or with microdermabrasion. Our licensed professional will cleans your skin and use a mild toner to remove any oils before gently applying layers of a solution to peel away the aged surface of the skin.
Recovery time after a chemical peel is dependant on the type of peel. After a chemical peel procedure, your skin may feel tight or sunburned. The proper skin care regimen is important to speed up the healing process and enhance results.
The results of a chemical peel vary depending on the peel that you receive. A superficial peel slightly reduces the signs of aging and skin damage. Medium peels are more effective in reducing signs of sun damage and fine wrinkles helping with the appearance of aging skin.
The state of your skin after a peel depends on what kind of peel you had. The superficial peels have limited effects and the medium peels may cause some redness
There are three different types of peel: superficial, medium and deep peels. These are categorised by the strength of the acid solution used in the peel and how deeply they penetrate the skin. Deeper peels penetrate the skin further and require greater recovery time. At Rejuven8 Medical we use VI Peel which is safe on all skin types. Our skin care professionals will decide on the right chemical peel based on your skin type and treatment goals
