What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is mostly smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun, that’s why sunscreen is really important. Chemical peel when done right and done by a certified skin professional can give you safe and effective treatment.
This treatment is approved my dermatologist to give a more radiant and youthful skin.
At LS ALCHEMY, we are partnered with different excellent brands to give you the best peel possible according to your skin goal, skin type and skin condition.
We offer different depth of peels;
Very Superficial and Superficial Peels : Alpha-hydroxy acid Antioxidant Peel, Oxygen Peel, Lactic 30%, AHA Advanced Exfoliator are used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.
Medium peel: Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid and other different cocktails of peels is applied to penetrate the out and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration and acne as well.

Wash your face with cool water. Warm or hot water might not feel as good as cool or cold water, which can help soothe post-peel sensations.
Moisturize and hydrate ( follow the post care routine instructed to you ) Since peels can temporarily compromise your skin’s protective barrier, it’s important to reinforce that barrier with a medium-to-thick moisturizer. Also, drink more water to help avoid dehydration, which could make your skin feel tight.
Apply sunscreen with SPF-30 or more. Your skin is more sensitive after a peel, so avoid direct sun exposure, which can lead to even more visible signs of skin aging. If you must be exposed, use a Broad Spectrum physical sunscreen at least 30 spf.
Avoid heavy workouts, dry saunas and steam rooms or facial steams. Increased blood circulation to the face can increase warming, tingling, itching, redness or other side effects on freshly peeled skin. Skip these activities on the day you use a peel. Don’t over-exfoliate. Peels are strong exfoliants, so you don’t need to use a separate exfoliant (like a scrub, brush or exfoliating cleanser) within 3-4 days of your peel.
Do not try to pick your skin, use eyebrow scissors if you want to cut the peeling skin.
