WHAT ARE FACIAL PEELS?
Facial Peels, or Chemical Peels, are a great way to “reboot” your skin allowing healthy skin to appear. A series of chemical peels can help treat a myriad of skin issues. Our treatments are highly customized and can be done in three week intervals.
There are many different types of chemical peels, and each company that sells peels has its own series of formulations. Having said that… the peels we use at Treat are generally a solution that has a combination or sometimes just one alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) or beta hydroxy acid (BHA). The solution is applied to the skin, normally in layers, though some peels are simply one layer. The peel is either removed at the end of the treatment or left on to self-neutralize. The acids in the peel work to dissolve the top layers of the skin creating a controlled wound and thus allowing the skin to regenerate itself.
Not sure which peel is right for you? All peel options are discussed and chosen to match the needs of your individual skin type at the time of your treatment.
Peels are considered one of the most dependable and recognized methods for safely improving the overall health and appearance of the skin. Regular cell turnover and exfoliation is important to healthy skin. With exposure to ultraviolet rays in the summer and other environmental factors it is important to exfoliate for more radiant and smooth looking skin.
