What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel will remove the top layer of your skin, which includes dead skin cells. The result is skin that has better texture and smoothness.

Depending on your goals, you might need to undergo several chemical peel treatments. This treatment option can reduce wrinkles and fine lines while brightening your skin. It can also help to establish an even skin tone.

By reducing the prominence of areas with brown discoloration, chemical peels are capable of evening out your skin tone. The treatment uses a mild solution, which must be spread over the skin. Once it has been applied, the solution usually requires a few minutes to penetrate the skin. It will remove the upper layer of the skin while leaving the lower layers of the skin intact. It can take a few weeks for the new skin to finish growing.

A chemical peel is very effective at accelerating collagen production. It can make dark spots less noticeable and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Once it’s finished growing in, the new layer of skin will have a firm, supple feel to it.

The HydraFacial MD®
This treatment is one of the top solutions for skin rejuvenation. The purpose of this procedure is to restore the beauty of your skin. A HydraFacial involves the use of advanced technology and therapy. When performed successfully, it can deliver immediate, long-lasting results.

The HydraFacial consists of multiple steps. The first step consists of skin exfoliation and removes dead skin cells from the target area. Once the dead skin cells have been removed, your healthy, new skin will be revealed. This is like microdermabrasion. The second step involves a glycolic peel, which loosens debris and doesn’t irritate the pores. Glycolic peels can be used in different concentrations depending on your skin needs and sensitivity. Our estheticians prefer to gradually increase the strength in subsequent HydraFacials . The third step consists of the automatic extraction of debris from pores, which is accomplished with vortex suction. The fourth step of the process is the application of a special hydration serum, which fuses, nourishes and protects the skin. The HydraFacial is a great solution for your skin because it doesn’t cause discomfort or require downtime.


HydraFacial vs Chemical Peels: Which is Right for Me?

When compared with a chemical peel, the HydraFacial is a much more extensive treatment option. If you’re looking for skin nourishing, exfoliation and cleansing, the HydraFacial may be the best treatment option for you.

Chemical peels are different because they tend to work best on certain types of skin. However, both treatment options are similar because they can rejuvenate skin and reduce the appearance of smile lines, crow’s feet and fine wrinkles.
