Chemical peels are exactly what they sound like. A chemical agent is used to exfoliate or peel the outermost layers of the skin, allowing the healthy “new” skin to replace the old surface skin. Chemical peels can help hydrate the skin, fade hyper-pigmentation, soften wrinkles and reduce acne. There are a large number of peels on the market as well as different peel depths. Here at Zap we do everything from light enzyme peels to more aggressive VI Peels®, TCA, and Jessner peels. With all the different peels Zap has to offer we can do everything from hydrate your skin to change the overall appearance. As a general rule the deeper, more aggressive, the peel the more profound the results but that also means a longer recovery time.
