Chemical peels are topically applied acids that aid in the restoration and rejuvenation of the skin’s surface. They create a uniform and controlled shedding of several layers of the skin. Depending on the nature and depth of the peel, a significant number of layers can be exfoliated allowing new growth to be exposed, creating fresh vibrant appearance.

Some side effects include uneven pigmentation, redness, and very infrequent scarring if the skin is not cared for appropriately. Sun protection is crucial to minimize the risk of side effect.
Since new skin is more susceptible to sunburn, extra precautions should be taken to avoid sun exposure following the peel. It is recommend that person use a SPF of 30 or higher. Limiting sun exposure for at least one week after the peel.

Medium peels contain a stronger potency of acids. Medium peels target the epidermis and upper dermis and cause the skin to slough within 5-7 days.

Within a day the skin turns light brown in color, and after 2 days the skin initiates the peeling process.
Deep peels produce the most dramatic results. This peel is recommended for treating wrinkles, scars, pigmentation, melasma and, in some cases, precancerous skin lesions. A deep peel targets the dermis. During the procedure the person feels warm to hot stinging sensation. After a deep peel, the skin is red, white, and frosty. A crust may form and the skin will turn brown just prior to peel, which in 2 days after procedure. Many layers of skin will peel over a period of 7-10 days. An ointment may be given to keep the area movies. Temporarily, the new skin will be blotchy and sensation of significant sunburn, which will gradually fade to your normal skin color.
Advanced technology offering skin firming, tightening, toned and lifting appearance without the downtime.
The heat produced by the transfer of Radio Frequency energy in the dermal layer of the skin causes a contraction of the collagen fibers accelerating the production of new collagen and elastin while. Radio waves pass into the fatty skin layer causing the connective tissues to be restored and strengthened due to the increased lymphatic circulation, while the photo activation helps to balance the skin condition using light therapy.
