Chemical Peels

One of the main factors affecting skin health is the process of cellular regeneration, or the speed at which dead skin cells are replaced by new ones.

About the Chemical Peels

As we age, this process naturally slows down, resulting in duller, less healthy looking skin. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. The procedure is quick, with minimum discomfort and downtime.



  • How it works
    Chemical peels loosen the bonds that hold dead skin cells together, allowing dead skin to slough off and reveal the softer, smoother skin underneath.
  • Chemical peels can improve the appearance?
    1) Acne or acne scars
    2) Age spots
    3) Fine lines and wrinkles
    4) Irregular pigmentation
    5) Sun damage
    6) Rough or scaly patches
    7) Dark spots ( Melasma )
  • What are the types of chemical peels?
    We offer a variety of peeling solutions for all skin types, including peels safe for acne-prone or sensitive skin. Dr. Casal or any of our certified Aestheticians will determine the best strength and formula for your individual needs based on your skin condition and available recovery time.
  • Treatment and recovery
    During a chemical peel, the chemical solution is applied to clean skin and left for up to 10 minutes. You may feel a slight stinging sensation. The chemical solution is then washed off and neutralized.

    Depending on the strength of your peel, your skin may turn red or brown following the procedure and you may experience some peeling. It may take no down time or up to six weeks for your skin to return to normal.
