What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a professional-grade skincare treatment that uses concentrated alpha-hydroxy acids to chemically exfoliate the skin. Chemical peels can be customized to a specific depth based on your needs, with superficial peels being beneficial for a rejuvenating monthly treatment and deeper peels being beneficial for tackling deep-rooted skin concerns. After a chemical peel, your skin creates healthy new cells and increases collagen production to reverse concerns like visible aging, scarring, pigmentation, dullness, and texture.

Is a Chemical Peel Right for Me?

Chemical peels can benefit most types of skin, but it’s important to first discuss your medical history and skincare regimen with our team. If you currently use any active ingredients in your regimen, you’ll need to stop using them ahead of your treatment. You’ll also discuss the right peel depth for you and your goals, so keep in mind that a deeper chemical peel may require time away from social obligations.

What are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?

  • Healthy, glowing results
  • Customization
  • Improvement in skin texture, tone, and appearance

What Happens During a Chemical Peel?

You’ll begin your appointment by discussing your goals with our team. We’ll create the right treatment package for you and select the right peeling solution based on your skin. Then, your skin will be cleansed, and the solution will be applied to the skin. The solution is left on for a predetermined amount of time that coordinates with your intended peel depth. Once complete, the solution is neutralized, and your skin is made ready for recovery.

Chemical Peel Maintenance

You can expect some peeling after your session, and the degree of peeling will depend on how aggressive your treatment is. For deeper peels, you may have visible peeling for a week or more while surface peels may have only a little redness for a few days after. It’s extremely important to keep your skin protected from sun exposure and avoid scrubbing, scratching, or picking at it. Also avoid using any harsh skincare ingredients and keep your skin moisturized with a gentle, unscented moisturizer. After about 1 week, you’ll notice drastic improvement in your skin’s appearance with a healthy glow and a reduction in your skin concerns. You can opt for regular peels monthly to maintain your results.
