Light chemical peels are one of our most popular treatments offered. They are the most superficial of all chemical peels, so there is no downtime. In fact, these peels are often called “lunchtime peels” because you can get one done quickly over a lunch hour and return to work directly afterwards.
During a light chemical peel treatment, the skin is exfoliated using an alpha hydroxy acid. You will feel a warming sensation soon after the peeling agent is applied. The length of time the peeling agent is left on the skin varies, but the average is between 8 to 18 minutes. Then the peel is removed with a neutralizing agent and cool water.
After a light chemical peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so wear sunscreen with SPF 15+ and limit your time in the sun.
Done in a series, these peels can improve mild to moderately severe cases of acne, and can be given over the face or other body area where pigmentation is a problem. Light chemical peels are also used to soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin texture and fade discolorations.
Chemical peels don’t really peel the skin, despite what the name implies. They rapidly exfoliate the skin, allowing dead skin cells to shed more effectively. By keeping dead skin cells and excess oil from clogging the hair follicle, pore blockages (comedones) and pimples can be drastically reduced.
