What is a Chemical Peel?
Synergy chemical peels are a facial treatment used to diminish blemishes and revitalize your skin. When applied to the skin, the acids in the chemical peel interact with proteins causing exfoliation and peeling of the skin. Different acids cause peeling at different depths allowing us to perform a superfical, medium, or deep peel.
This treatment helps to correct skin pigmentation, mild sun damage, wrinkles, and acne, giving you a smoother, healthier complexion. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
Synergy Chemical peels are used to treat a number of conditions including:
- Acne scars
- Aging skin
- Crow’s feet
- Sun damaged skin
- Sagging skin
What to expect?
You may feel some light to medium tingling and stinging during the chemical while the peel is working its magic. We will keep the peel on depending on your skin’s tolerance to it. We will cleanse your face before we start the Chemical peel and then apply moisturizer and serums after.
Immediately after your chemical peel, your skin will be more sensitive to the sun. To avoid burning, apply a good broad-spectrum SPF everyday and avoid direct strong sunlight for a day. You will also notice a slight flush to the skin which will disappear within the day. Chemical peels are quick, and require no downtime. This is a great facial that you could do on your lunch break.
