At Tay River Reflections, we offer advanced chemical peels using alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) with beta hydroxy acids (BHA). The aged/dead cells that are exfoliated are replaced by newer, more youthful cells. There is increased production of new collagen beneath the epidermis, although the exact scientific reason why exfoliation triggers this is still undefined. A series of 4 to 6 applications is recommended spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart. This can then be followed by maintenance peels every 1 to 2 months.
AHA/BHA peels can rejuvenate the skin and can gradually improve:
- Rough, dull looking skin
- Fine wrinkling associated with sun damage
- Uneven pigmentation
- Mild acne, blackheads and prominent pores.
