Myth 1: Chemical Peels Are Excessively Harsh

There's a common belief that chemical peels are harsh and damaging. However, this is far from the truth. With advancements in skincare, you are able to add glycolic acid and salicylic acid to your peel, and they are designed to be gentle yet effective. These treatments work to gently remove dead skin cells, revealing brighter, smoother skin beneath. They're tailored to your skin type, ensuring a safe and comfortable experience.

Myth 2: Only for Aging Skin

Another myth is that chemical peels are only suitable for aging skin. Contrary to this, peels offer benefits for a variety of skin concerns, including acne, hyperpigmentation, and texture irregularities. They promote cellular turnover, aiding in a more youthful and radiant appearance for any age.

Myth 3: Immediate Sun Exposure is Fine

Post-treatment care is crucial. A common misconception is that one can immediately expose their skin to the sun after a peel. In reality, your skin is more sensitive post-peel and sun protection is essential. IPL Photofacial is an excellent complementary treatment to protect and rejuvenate your skin further.

Myth 4: Peels Are a One-Time Solution

Chemical Peels are often perceived as a one-time fix. However, for optimal results, a series of treatments is usually recommended. Consistent peels, tailored to your skin's needs, contribute to long-term skin health and vibrancy.
