Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes to produce healthy, glowing skin.
Alpha hydroxy acids or AHAs are the gentlest of the chemical peels. They consist of a group of glycolic, lactic and fruit acids that smooth and brighten skin by treating fine wrinkles, dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne; treatment takes 10 minutes or less.
In an AHA peel, the skin is cleaned and the solution applied; there is no need for "after-peel" ointment or covering.
After the Procedure
AHA peels can cause temporary stinging, redness, irritation and flaking or crusting. All procedures require adequate sun protection for your new skin.
