The skin is a protective armor that sustains considerable damage daily. Your skin is constantly subjected to bacteria, viruses, injuries, UV rays, pollutants, and toxins. Over time, your skin may look dull, uneven, damaged, and you may develop acne and other skin conditions. We offer personalized chemical peels to resurface smoother, healthier skin.
Bring smooth and healthy skin to the surface
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. We perform a thorough analysis and assessment to select the appropriate chemicals for your skin type and conditions. Some of the possible chemical peels include alpha hydroxy acids, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, and phenol. Chemical peels eventually make your skin blister and peel off, revealing smoother, softer, and healthier skin.
Stimulate collagen production and reverse aging
In addition to improving the texture of your skin, chemical peels also stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm, taut, and youthful. It binds skin tissues together and holds them upright against gravity. The loss of collagen is the primary reason for the onset of wrinkles and skin laxity. Chemical peels trigger your body’s innate collagen production capabilities, thus reversing the effects of aging on your skin.
Benefits of chemical peels:
- Non-invasive skin rejuvenation
- Improve overall skin tone and texture
- Brighten your complexion

- Resume daily activities and work immediately
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Personalized according to your skin type
Side effects and recovery after chemical peels
After the chemical peel procedure, you can expect your skin to feel tight and dry. You may also experience some redness and swelling. These side effects are temporary and should subside within a few days. Furthermore, your skin will be sensitive to the sun. It is important to wear sunscreen and avoid sun exposure while your skin is healing. You can also expect your skin to peel for a few days after the treatment. This is normal and part of the skin cell turnover process.
What you can expect from chemical peels results
You can expect results from your chemical peel treatment within a few days to a few weeks. The results will continue to improve as your skin regenerates. You should see an improvement in your skin’s appearance after just one chemical peel. Your skin will be smoother and more evenly toned. If you have sun damage, you will see a decrease in the appearance of sunspots. If you have acne, you may see a decrease in the number of breakouts.
