Chemical Peels | Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA
The use of chemical peels to beautify skin has been around since ancient times. Cleopatra used to bathe in goats milk, whereas the women in Rome rubbed fermented grape skins from the bottom of wine barrels to enhance their skin's beauty. Unknowingly, they were benefiting lactic acid and tartaric acid, common alpha hydroxy acids still used in cosmetics today. Chemical peel treatments are time tested, tried and true powerful treatments that are designed for a variety of different skin conditions.
Chemical peels can effectively resurface and refresh the skin by diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation and acne scars. Chemical peels are used for various skin concerns across all ages, and are often combined with other skin-enhancing treatments depending on the skin condition being treated.
Types of peels
There are a myriad of peels available to choose from today. Chemical skin peels can range from superficial to medium or deep. Superficial peels are generally recommended in a series of peel sessions, spaced a month apart, but can also be performed as a single treatment as a "refresher". However, a single treatment will not have the lasting power of what a series can achieve. The advantage of a superficial peel is that it allows you to return to your regular activities immediately with just some mild redness. Medium peels can be a single treatment or as part of a session, whereas a deep peel is in generally a one time treatment. The deeper the peel, the more dramatic the corrective result. However, the deeper the peel the longer it takes to recover and the more downtime is involved.
The process of a chemical peel is relatively simple. Chemical peels involve placing a chemical solution onto the skin, which causes injury and break the bonds between dead skin cells. Once the dead skin cells exfoliate, new fresh glowing radiant skin emerges.
