I Have a More Youthful Glow Thanks To Chemical Peels

Sarah has been getting 2 to 3 chemical peels a year for about 8 years to help with freckling, fine lines and keeping the pores small.

Chemical peels are a popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure used to peel away the skin’s top layer, covered with dead skin cells, to improve sun-damaged, unevenly pigmented and wrinkled skin.

“They cleansed my skin with alcohol, followed by gauze, the first bout of chemical, and lastly retinoic acid for a minute or two. The procedure took only twelve minutes. I had very good results and without any downtime, except for some flaking and tingling which was easily dealt with,” explained Sarah.

After a chemical peel, the peeling process takes about 5-7 days depending on the individual and the type of chemical peel. Results vary by type of chemical peel; deep and medium depth peel results can years, while superficial peel (“lunchtime” peel) results are temporary.

“I would definitely recommend this to others, I feel like the chemical peels leave my skin with a more youthful glow!” exclaimed Sarah.
