AHA BHA Peel
Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), including Glycolic Acid are the mildest of the chemical peel formulas and produce light peeling. It could be used as an additional exfoliating treatment to some of our facials or as a series of treatments to exfoliate dead, damaged skin, minimize fine lines, clear breakouts, and brighten your complexion.
We have many peeling agents to choose from, but it is important to consider your life style when selecting the right peel. Consider the potential downtime with your treatment, as the degree of peeling varies and depends on the depth of the peel, which can range from superficial to deep.
Chemical Peel FAQ's
Q: What are chemical peels?
A. Chemical peels contain different chemical solutions to produce a separation and peeling of the outer layers of the skin and stimulate the production of new cells. They vary from very light and superficial to medium and more intense medical grade peels. The depth of the peel recommended will depend on your skin condition, type, and desired result. The skin's reaction to the chemical peel is similar to what you would experience with a sunburn and generally, the deeper the peel the longer the recovery.
We offer several different types of chemical peel blends to fit everyone's skin care needs such as: Vita Active Peel, Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, medical grade Vi Peel, Trichloroacetic Acid, Retinolic Acid, and Obagi Radiance.
