Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a popular non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses a chemical solution to improve the appearance of skin on the face, neck, or hands. The solution creates a controlled burn which causes the outermost layer of skin to peel off, revealing smoother, more even-toned skin underneath.

At Aesthetic Options, we offer a range of chemical peels to suit various skin types and concerns, including acne, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles. We use only medical-grade products and employ highly trained professionals to perform the treatments, ensuring maximum safety and efficacy.

Chemical peels can be categorized as superficial, medium, or deep, depending on the depth of the peel and the strength of the solution used. Superficial peels are the mildest and only affect the top layer of skin, while deep peels penetrate several layers and require a longer recovery time.

It is important to note that chemical peels are not suitable for everyone and should only be performed by a licensed and experienced professional. It is important to undergo a thorough consultation before the treatment to assess the patient’s skin type and condition, as well as any potential risks or side effects. 

Overall, chemical peels can be a highly effective way to improve the appearance of skin and achieve a more youthful, radiant complexion. With proper aftercare and follow-up treatments, the results can be long-lasting and help boost self-confidence.
