Is a Chemical Peel Good for Your Skin?


Chemical Peels are a popular, relatively inexpensive method to refresh and rejuvenate skin and for treatment of some skin disorders! The exact results will depend on many factors, including the severity of your skin issues and the type of peel you receive.

Our medical grade chemical peel treatments can help improve all skin types and concerns, including acne, aging and hyperpigmentation. The peel treatment increases the skin’s cell turnover rate, allowing new skin cells to visibly reach the surface. This decreases the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, breakouts, dark spots and more. Longer term benefits can be achieved with repeat peel procedures.

Our skin loses collagen over time, and wrinkles and fine lines begin to form. Chronic sun exposure, poor nutrition, and unhealthy lifestyle choices can contribute to the development of facial lines and wrinkles. If you are looking for a way to reverse or minimize signs of sun damage and skin aging, chemical peels offer a safe and convenient solution!

What to expect when you receive your chemical peel:

Before the peel: We’ll meet with you for a personalized consultation that will help determine your specific needs and desired outcome. This individualized planning will help us better understand your skin care goals and what treatment plan would work best based on your skin type and needs.

During the procedure: We’ll create a custom mixture of solutions designed to help you achieve the results you’re looking for. The solution will lift away dead and damaged cells on the skin surface. The treatment process will then stimulate existing cells to regenerate and produce more collagen, resulting in smoother and younger-looking skin with a healthy glow.

Recovery time: You can expect a normal recovery time of 3-5 days, during which you can expect minor redness and peeling. Post-procedure skin care can help minimize side effects, including proper sun exposure precautions, avoiding scratching, abstaining from makeup application before full healing has occurred and not using tanning beds. Be sure to follow the guidelines provided for before and after the procedure to achieve optimal results and minimal side effects.

Maintaining results: Depending on the depth of the initial peel, you may benefit from additional treatments. Superficial peels are more likely to require follow up sessions than deep level peels.

You may see benefits such as:

  • Softened appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Help clear active acne.
  • Lightened visibility of acne scars and hyperpigmentation, providing a more even skin tone.
  • Elimination of build-up of pigment that can cause dark under eye circles.
  • Removed layers of dead skin, revealing a brighter and more hydrated top layer.
  • Improved skin response to regular skin care products and routine – the newly exfoliated skin layer soaks up lotions and serums more effectively without the barrier of dead skin cells.

Results vary in relation to the type of chemical peel performed. Superficial peels will lessen fine lines and remove skin damage. Deeper peels will more effectively reduce wrinkles and signs of aging. Peels will exfoliate layers of dead skin and damage to reveal younger, healthier skin cells on the surface. This visible result will achieve a healthy and younger-looking glow.
