What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is quite simply a chemical exfoliation of your skin. The first chemical peels were recorded to have been done in ancient Egyptian times and have since remained a key stable of aesthetic beauty care over the ages. Thanks to recent scientific advances, today’s chemical peels come in a variety of types an offer various levels of skin penetration from mild ones to more aggressive treatments for more problematic skin conditions.
In modern terms, the simplest explanation is that a chemical peel is a chemical exfoliation of the skin.

A chemical peel strips away dead surface skin and triggers the healing and regeneration of the skin. The peel process brings forth brighter fresher skin layers and leave you with a rejuvenated and more radiant appearance to your skin.

Popular Chemical Peels Available at AALC

Chemical peels are available in variety of concentrations, including:

Chemical peels are designed to work at different levels of skin penetration; they go from superficial to medium and deep. The stronger the peel, the deeper it penetrates the skin and the longer the recovery period as well. While the deeper peels may afford the most dramatic results to the appearance of one’s skin, they aren’t always necessary or desirable–given your unique needs and circumstance. To determine the best peel for your goals, schedule a private consultation with one of the aesthetic professionals at AALC.

Chemical peels can be used as stand-alone cosmetic treatments or in conjunction with a laser treatment protocol. AALC Chemical peels come in a variety of options–each is completed with unique ingredients, techniques, and treatment effects.
