Chemical Peels


The chemical peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world, and was performed in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome to help people achieve smoother, more beautiful skin. Today, chemical facial peels are popular because they offer nearly immediate results, whether you want to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, and uneven pigmentation, or if you simply want to rejuvenate your skin.

What is a light chemical peel?


Light chemical peels are also known as glycolic acid peels, AHA chemical peels, or salicylic acid chemical peels. Glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that occurs naturally in sugar cane, is the most common ingredient of light chemical peels. The ingredients and formulation of a light chemical peel, however, depend upon the specific patient's skin care needs.

With light chemical peels, the chemical solution is left on the skin for a relatively short amount of time. When applied to the face or another part of the body, the AHA chemical peel solution works by removing the upper layers of dead and damaged skin and therefore encouraging skin cell regeneration so that a new, smooth layer of skin is revealed. The action of the chemical solution stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, essential components of healthy, youthful skin. This type of peel provides gentle treatment for fine lines, acne, chronic dry skin, and uneven pigmentation. The formulation of the chemical solution used in a light chemical peel depends on the needs of the individual patient

At Peak Expression we recommend the Neo-Strata Glycolic Skin Peel or the Skin Tech TCA skin Peel depending on the depth of peel needed and your skin type.
