Chemical Peel Frequently Asked Questions

Our aestheticians can choose a peel that will help meet your cosmetic goals. We have peels from several different manufacturers in formulations to meet each patient’s needs, from mild to moderate.

Our chemical peels can treat:

  • acne
  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • poor complexion
  • uneven skin texture
  • some visible scars

If you’re relatively young, you might choose a peel that helps reduce the signs and symptoms of acne. If you’re a little older, a chemical peel can help you treat age spots, fine lines and wrinkles.

The process for applying a chemical peel is actually quite simple and often takes as little as 15 minutes. First, your skin will be carefully cleansed. Next, the chemical peel solution will be applied to your face. For some patients, treatment may also be done on the neck and chest.

The chemical solution will penetrate the skin and work for a short time before it is removed. If necessary, your aesthetician may recommend more than one chemical peel to provide satisfactory results.

We offer a variety of different peels to meet any skin type, budget and downtime for the patient. Our most popular chemical peels include treatments from SkinMedica, Revision Skincare, ZO Skin Health and the BioRePeel. Your provider will recommend the best treatment peel for you based on your skincare concerns and goals.

The skin will begin to flake and peel after your treatment. In a few days, the dead, dull skin cells on the surface will be gone and fresh skin is then revealed. After a light chemical peel, downtime and skin flaking is minimal.

Still, it’s important to follow the aesthetician’s post-treatment instructions. Remember to apply sun protection every day.
