CHEMICAL PEELS

Did you know skin shedding is a totally natural process where your skin renews itself entirely every month? We shed around 30000 to 40000 skin cells every hour! The body’s biggest organ replicates the fastest because it has to protect against impurities like pollution, chemicals, ultraviolet rays, changes in temperature and climate, bacteria and a host of potential infections. Sadly as we age the skin renewal process slows down and shows up in the form of wrinkles, fine lines, hyper-pigmentation, acne and brown spots.

Why a chemical peel? Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, hands, neck and other body parts to improve the appearance or feel of the skin.

What Is a Chemical Peel? Chemical peels is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is smoother and younger looking.

What is the benefits of a chemical Peel?  A chemical peel is an anti-aging treatment with a host of benefits that include exfoliation, but it also builds collagen, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, boosts radiance, shrinks pore size, diminishes dark spots, clears the complexion, and can even help with rosacea.

Chemical peels lift away dead cells and trigger a lovely chain reaction to make your skin and skincare products work better.  In short peels accelerate cell turnover by dissolving the tiny bonds that hold skin cells together, helping to remove dead skin on the surface.  This increase rate of sloughing thins the outer layer of the skin called the stratum corneum.   A thinner stratum corneum reflects light better and makes skin looks smooth and more youthful.  The stratum corneum (Latin for ‘horny layer’) is the outermost layer of the epidermis. There has been a long-standing belief in dermatology that the stratum corneum consisted of dead cells.

We at Peel Away have a variety of peels to suit the need of each and every individual.  From soft peels with no downtime to deeper peels with a 10 day downtime period.. Your lifestyle and time will determine the choice of your product.  No matter what your choice of product is, chemical peels should be part of your beauty regime. If you haven’t been using an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) or BHA (beta hydroxyl acid) your skin is missing out on significant benefits!!

Chemical peels can be done at different depths: light, medium or deep depending on your desired results.

Light chemical peels remove the outer layer of the skin. You may have a light peel once a week depending on your desired results.

Medium chemical peels remove skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part and middle layer of the skin. You might repeat a medium chemical peel every 2 to 4 weeks depending on your desired results.

Deep chemical peels remove skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the mid to lower layer of your dermis. You may repeat a deep chemical peel every 6 weeks or 3 monthly period depending on your desired results.
