Chemical Peels: The Conditions it Treats and What to Expect

Lately, it seems like chemical peels are having a moment in the spotlight. With its ease and simplicity, it is no surprise that clients seeking impressive results are flocking to this medspa procedure. If you have been considering a chemical peel, but have questions, we are here to help.

What Is A Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is an exfoliating treatment that removes the outer layers of skin, revealing the soft, fresh, beautiful skin that is waiting below. Depending on your skin condition and your needs, we will tailor the formula and strength of the peel specifically to you.

What Conditions Does A Chemical Peel Treat?

A chemical peel can treat a variety of troubling skin conditions. These include signs of age like fine lines, creases, age spots, and photoaging. Chemical peels can also address imperfections such as shallow acne scarring, acne, and rosacea. Additionally, these treatments can improve the appearance of uneven skin texture and tone, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores and sun damage. With so many different uses, it is clear why this is becoming such a beloved treatment option.

What Should I Expect?

When you come for a chemical peel treatment, the process is easy and stress-free. If you are receiving a lighter peel, your treatment time may be less an hour. Deeper peels, on the other hand, may take two hours to complete.

Fortunately, patients are allowed to return to normal activities immediately following the procedure. In first seven days after your appointment, you may notice some initial pinkness or irritation of the skin. This typically resolves itself in just a few hours, leaving you with a refreshed appearance almost immediately.

Those who have had a deeper peel should know that skin flaking and peeling is a normal part of the healing process. This will last for a few days, but will ultimately reveal the beautiful skin you have been seeking. In order to promote the skin’s healing and enhance the final results, patients will also be asked to use special skin care products.
