About Skin Peels

Learn to Discern Your Skin Peels

AHA Peels

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) originate from milk and fruit sugars; the most common are lactic acid and glycolic acid. When applied to the face, the AHA Peel works by removing the outer layers of skin so that a new, smooth layer of skin is revealed. The action of the Peel is to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen – essential components of healthy skin.

AHA Peels are suitable for clients who have skin imperfections and conditions, and who want to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of their skin without the recovery time of harsher treatments such as TCA Peels. A safe, effective way to reduce uneven pigmentation, acne, acne scars, acne Roseacea, fine lines and the long term effects of sun and smoking on skin.

TCA Peels

TCA stands for trichloroacetic acid and is a common agent used for chemical peeling. Layers of skin peel off, shedding and allowing cellular renewal to take place with new skin. TCA peels can help treat uneven pigmentation, deep wrinkles and deep ice pick acne scarring. TCA Peels are performed by dermatologists or plastic surgeons, and are not appropriate for all skin types. The recovery time can range from a few days to several weeks, depending on the strength of the Peel.
