How does a Chemical Peel work?

It uses Lactic acid lotion instead of using acid solutions. These peels preserve as much epidermis as possible while at the same time, getting the safest effective concentration of hydronium ions into the dermis. These peels are designed to preserve the architecture of the skin simultaneously stimulating the fibroblasts in the dermis to increase the quantity of collagen in the dermis.

Lactic acid Cream Peels do not destroy cells but stimulate the release of growth factors. They are usually better For acne, dry and sensitive skin, anti-aging, sun damage and fine lines. They come in different “levels” 1 – 4

 

What to expect during a Chemical Peel?

Each treatment takes approximately one hour.

The Peel starts with a deep cleanse, removed with a hot towel
A hydrating toner is then used to help remove any remaining dead skin cells, dirt or oils
After your skin is prepped,  the peel is applied anywhere from one to two layers are used at a time, depending on each patient's individual needs and tolerance 
Once the peel has been neutralized a mask of your technicians choice will be applied. This is dependant on your skin type. It stays on the skin for about 15 min while we pamper you with a hand massage. See if you can stay awake! 
Lastly, a moisturizer and SPF are applied after the mask is removed and the skin is left with a dewy, healthy glow

  

What to expect after a Chemical Peel? 

Cool Peels are made of lactic acid; which is a natural chemical compound found in our body. Lactic acid is very hydrating to the skin so patients shouldn’t expect to peel or flake very much after treatments. Maybe some slight flakey-ness typically along brows or around the mouth area. Post-treatment care: 

 Avoid sun exposure, including sun beds, for a minimum of 1-week
 Avoid strenuous exercise or swimming for 24-hours
