What Are Chemical Peels?

There are many different types of chemical peels with its own series of formulations.  Having said that the chemical peels used by estheticians are generally a solution that has a combination or sometimes just one alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) or beta hydroxy acid (BHA). The solution is applied to the skin, normally in layers though some peels are simply one layer, like a treatment mask.  The peel is either removed at the end of the treatment or left on to self-neutralize.  The acids in the peel work to dissolve the top layers of the skin creating a controlled wound and thus allowing the skin to regenerate itself.

There are plenty of chemical peels available for use today in a beauty market. However, some of them are for home use only. Please keep in mind, that those peels provide a very superficial effects, such as simple exfoliation and superficial peeling. Your skin will look healthy and toned for a while, but other issues (e.g. acne) will resurface. That is why, you should refer to a professional esthetician to perform a peel.

Chemical peels performed by estheticians at NE Laser Vein, have a lower pH than home use products so that they can penetrate much deeper into the skin. They will normally cause your skin to turn red, and a lot of time your skin will peel. Also, these peels, when performed in a series, can treat skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation and acne.
