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. and slough off dead skin cells. Once these dead and damaged skin cells have been removed, healthy skin is resurfaced to rejuvenate your appearance.
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 aging skin, acne scarring, sun damage, pigmentation, uneven skin tone, and uneven 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. People with sensitive skin should only receive a light peel, if any. 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.

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 chemical 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 most chemical peels 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 light 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. Avoid using any harsh skincare ingredients and keep your skin moisturized with a gentle, unscented moisturizer.
After about 1 week, you’ll notice a drastic improvement in your skin’s appearance with a healthy glow and youthful complexion. You can achieve optimal results with regular monthly peels to maintain your results.
