What is a Chemical Peel?
A Chemical Peel is a body treatment technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. We use Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) which is the mildest of the peel formulas and produces light peels for the treatment of fine wrinkles, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne. We also use Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA’s) which are considered to be a deeper peel to smooth out fine surface wrinkles, remove superficial blemishes and correct skin pigment problems and large pores.

They also increase the skin cell turnover (resurfacing the skin) resulting in improved skin texture and skin tone, giving your face a fresher, smoother and youthful appearance.

The Neostrata range do AHA peels are one of the most effective peel range since the bio-availability of the Glycolic acid is high allowing for maximum penetration of each peel. In short the peel solution is not buffered so the penetration each concentration of acid is more effective than other peels.
The EASY TCA is exactly what is says. It is easier and safer to apply this peel with minor adverse response. The peel program involves applying four peels on 1 to 2 week intervals to achieve deep penetration without the adverse events associated with one deep peel. The program allows for maximum patient satisfaction and little practical no adverse response to the treatment
