Superficial-Chemical-Peels

Superficial Skin Peels

Light chemical peels are the ideal treatment for gentle exfoliation, brightening and hydrating the skin. While they are medical peels they will not leave you red and will not leave your skin flaking or sloughing after the treatment, but rather with soft glowing skin. They are the perfect no downtime/ maximum result facial treatment. At our practice we use NeoStrata, Dermaquest and SkinCeuticals peeling systems and the choice is dependent on the skin type, skin concern, and the results one would like to achieve.

SkinCeuticals

SkinCeuticals Gel Peel

Combined, glycolic and lactic acid work synergistically to exfoliate the skin while reducing irritation and dryness. Because of glycolic acid’s molecular structure, it penetrates quicker and deeper than other AHAs to perform at all levels of the skin. Lactic acid is an effective yet gentle AHA that increases moisture levels by stimulating the production of glycosaminoglycans. By accelerating the cell renewal process, stimulating collagen synthesis, and improving elastin fibres in the dermis, this light chemical peel revitalizes photodamaged skin and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
