Biophora - Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic Peels

What is it?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance and texture of the skin. During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes the top layers of the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. This process reveals smoother, more youthful-looking skin beneath. Chemical peels are commonly used to address various skin concerns, including: acne scarring, wrinkles and fine lines, uneven skin tone, rough skin texture, acne and blemishes.

How does it interact with skin?

A chemical solution is applied to your skin, which causes trauma or injury to your skin’s layers. The solution is then left on your skin for a period of time—this may be longer or shorter depending on the depth of the peel, and the sensitivity of your skin. After, the solution is washed off your skin, and your skin will be neutralized with a cooling compress. The skin layers eventually peel off revealing more youthful skin

What’s the downtime?

The amount of downtime needed for a chemical peel depends on the strength of the peel. For example, a superficial peel can have a quick recovery time of 24-48 hours. However, a more aggressive peel that treats deeper layers of the skin may require one week of recovery time. During your recovery period, your skin may become dry, peel, or get irritated. Because of this, we recommend scheduling your chemical peel several weeks in advance of big social events. When recovering from a chemical peel, your skin will be very vulnerable to the UV rays of the sun.

How many treatments are needed?

We recommend doing a series of 3-4 spaced a month apart in order for the results to become cumulative and last longer. Each patient’s desired outcome will affect how many treatments they need.
