At the Body Bar Laser Clinic we offer a variety of different facial chemical peels. Peels provide brightening, tightening and glow that is often desired for the look of more youthful skin. They are non-invasive, well tolerated with no downtime.
A chemical peel can restore a more youthful appearance to wrinkled, unevenly pigmented, sun-damaged, or blotchy skin. However, a peel cannot reverse the aging process or completely remove deep scars.
All peels involve applying a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin so that a smoother, more evenly pigmented, glowing layer of skin can appear. There are three basic categories of chemical peels. Each type works differently, and produces different results. Your skin care technician will recommend the type of chemical peel that is best suitable for your skin type. In general, the stronger the chemical, the deeper the peel, and the more impressive the results.
The application of peels are relatively fast and simple. No sedation or anesthesia is required, since the patient only experiences a slight stinging when the solution is applied. The treatment usually takes about 10 to 15 minutes.
