What is a chemical peel?

Now, don't be turned off by the name Chemical Peel, its not a scary as it sounds! In fact, peels are one of our favourite treatments at Classic, and here is why. They are a non abrasive technique to deeply exfoliate your skin and remove built up skin cells without compromising your skin, which is great for sensitive/reactive skin types. Chemical peels stimulate cellular turnover & collagen syntheses to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles caused by sun damage, pollution, and other free radical damage. Resulting in improved overall skin texture, giving you a brighter and more even complexion, fine lines softened, and scarring and pigmentation lightened. When working with blemish prone skins, we use the different acids to kill the bacteria that is causing breakouts while nurturing the skin back to a good skin health. Focusing on post-inflammatory pigmentation and scarring left after breakouts. We are 5 different peel options here at Classic and we will choose what one is best for you depending on your skin health, concerns and skin goals. We love pairing our peels with the LED Healite and Ultimate Recovery Mask to give your skin that extra boost in hydration, healing and stimulation. We have 2 options when using the LED Healite, 830nm and 415nm The 830nm safetly penetrates to the basal cells and stimulates our fibroblast cells which create collagen and elastin. This encourages the cells to turnover at a faster rate and creates more healthier cells. It also creates a wound healing effect. The 415nm is perfect for those stubborn blemishes and acne. This option essentially kills the bacteria and stops it from dividing and growing. The Ultimate Recovery Mask is great for after your treatment and even to use at home, it has 4 active ingredients to heal, remove bacteria, regulate oil and provide moisture and nutrients to the skin. We can't wait to see you at the salon to start your skin journey, and if you have any questions our expert therapists are here to help!
