Chemical Peel

What is a peel?

A peel is a product that’s put on your face and, as the name implies, is peeled off. The most effective peels are those that are performed by skilled aestheticians. A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to improve the skin. They smooth skin by removing the outer layers, which hold onto damage and are often rough and dry.

This revitalizes skin and stimulates the production of new, healthy skin and subcutaneous tissues. Many people can benefit from a peel, but those with uneven skin coloring and winkles are most likely to benefit the most.

Swan Acid Peels

If you are looking to uncover the smooth and younger skin beneath what you have now, you might want to consider a glycolic acid peel. The benefits are immense but it’s important to understand what they are and what they can do for your skin.

What is a Swan acid peel?

When applied to the skin, it helps to remove the “glue” that holds the older, rougher and dryer skin on the surface. When it removes that top layer of skin, the fresh, new layer is visible. It’s this layer that’s without damage and which looks fresher. People who have Swan acid peels are often amazed with the results – they look younger, with fewer fine lines and wrinkles, notice that their skin is much clearer and more vibrant.

How does a Swan acid peel work?

A light layer of the peel is applied to your face and left for a few minutes. Then the peel is removed and you are free to leave the office. With a glycolic acid peel, there is no real recovery time and no pain relievers are necessary. If you do feel any discomfort during the procedure (which would likely only be slightly irritation to the skin) you might be instructed to take Tylenol or Motrin.

Side effects

There are few if any side effects to having a Swan acid peel. Right after the procedure you might feel some burning, but it often goes away quickly. You might have some redness, but again, this usually goes away fairly quickly.

If you have sensitive or very fair skin you are more likely to encounter these discomforts. An acid can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so you should wear a good sun block.

After Your Peel, generously apply Swan Vitamin C Hyaluronic Serum as needed for tight, dry skin.
