Chemical Peels

Your skin is exposed to environmental elements every day. Over the years, the sun’s rays, pollution, and other damaging agents can take a toll on your skin. Chemical peel treatments can help reduce or eliminate the wrinkles and fine lines, “crow’s feet,” age spots, light acne scars, and undesired pigmentation that may appear on the skin over time.

What is a chemical peel?

An effective approach to achieve healthier, more radiant skin without down time.

A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) are most commonly used. The precise formula used may be adjusted to meet each patient’s needs.

What are the benefits of a Chemical Peel?

  • Smoothes rough, dry skin
  • Improves texture, tone and clarity to sun-damaged skin
  • Reduces acne scars and controls acne
  • Reduces or eliminates age spots, freckles, and melasma
  • Softens lines and wrinkles
  • Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for firmer skin
  • Gives skin a healthy glow

What should I expect after my treatment?

After a chemical peel treatment most clients experience some swelling and temporary redness. Your skin should begin to flake and / or peel within 24 to 72 hours after your treatment. This should not prevent you from working or engaging in your normal activities. Within 7-10 days after peeling your skin will look luminous and glowing. Hyper-pigmentation, tone and texture will be improved. In Modesto, skin care comes first and this proves to be a great wrinkle treatment that is quick in recovery with lasting results.
