Chemical peels are a very old concept in facial treatments. In fact, Queen Cleopatra was using them as long ago as the first century BC, when she applied lactic acid from sour milk and tartaric acid from wine to refresh her look. Today’s peels are even more effective, and you can find the right one for you at Beverly Hills Sculptress in Beverly Hills, CA.
What It’s All About
Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and wished you could just peel back what you see and reveal fresh, healthy, younger skin: the way you used to look? That’s what chemical peels are for! They can be used on the face, chest, neck, and hands to give you a refreshed and younger look.
Specifically, chemical peels are designed to minimize the look of lines and wrinkles, even out the tone and color of your skin, and brighten your complexion. We can also use these peels to treat a variety of skin conditions, including:
- Uneven skin texture
- Sun damage
- Some types of acne
- Age and sunspots
How Chemical Peels Work
Decide on a Peel
It all starts with a consultation. There we can take a look at your skin, listen to your concerns and goals, and help you understand the best way to get the results you’re looking for. There are different levels of peels and peels designed with different ingredients to address different issues. Together, we’ll choose the right peel for you.
Preparing and Applying
For a few weeks before your peel, you’ll follow some pre-peel skin care that will improve your results. On the day of your peel, we’ll make sure your skin is thoroughly cleansed. Then we’ll apply the peel, neutralize or wipe it off as necessary, and send you home with some after instructions that will ensure you get the very best possible results.
It will take a few days for your results to become apparent. During this time, your old, dull skin will peel away revealing fresh, strong, bright skin beneath. The length of time it takes to see your results depends on which peel you get, so we’ll give you more specific instructions and ideas about results when you choose the peel you want to see.
Some people like to get lighter peels and repeat them on a regular basis; often every four to six weeks as new skin cells regenerate. Others prefer stronger peels less often. We’ll help you choose what’s right for you, and you can set up another peel treatment whenever you’re ready. Once you see the amazing results of a good chemical peel, though, we think you’ll be anxious to repeat them!
