At IMAGE Skincare, we appreciate that your skin is unique, as should your skin treatment be. Chemical peels are one of the most requested facial services within a skin clinic, but understanding the dos and don’ts is crucial when considering chemical peels versus facials.
What exactly are chemical peels, and how do they function?
Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments involving the application of a chemical solution, either acids or enzymes, or both, to enhance skin texture and appearance. This process prompts the top skin layer to peel off, revealing smoother, healthier, and more youthful skin below.
Customizable to tackle fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven tone, and sun damage, chemical peels exfoliate, boost collagen, and foster new skin cell growth, ultimately refreshing and rejuvenating the complexion. These peels come in various strengths and types, tailored to individual skincare needs.
What are the benefits of chemical peels?
Our physician-developed peels effectively target various skin conditions, offering benefits such as:
- Improving skin texture
- Diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Clearing acne and reducing acne scars
- Refining complexion and balancing skin tone
- Fading sun damage and pigmentation
Which Image Skincare peel is best for me?
The unique aspect of Image Skincare lies in our customizable signature treatments, leveraging higher ingredient concentrations for results not achievable with at-home products. This diversity allows for more dramatic and faster outcomes. Our physician-formulated chemical peels cater to all skin types and concerns. Here’s a snapshot of our peels and their specific advantages:
