WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL?
A chemical peel is a treatment in which an acid solution is used to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin. A chemical peel enhances and smooths the texture of the skin. It is an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. Peels exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and color.

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED A CHEMICAL PEEL?
For optimal results, a series of peels are used to exfoliate the skin and reveal a fresh layer of healthy skin underneath. Receiving regular chemical peels (every 6 weeks) ensures the removal of dead skin cells that build up and cause dullness, fine lines and an aged appearance.
Usually the procedure only take 15-20 minutes. Your face may be pink and sensitive directly after treatment. Direct contact with sunlight should be avoided.
Results and amount of peeling that occurs may vary across skin types.
SkinMedica offers a line of products containing TNS, a compound which promotes skin healing and is a great addition to your post peel regimen. Remember, daily sunscreen with an SPF of 30 is recommended to maintain your improved skin.
