What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are used to smooth the skin and improve the appearance of fine wrinkles, dryness, uneven pigmentation, and acne. There are different types of peels used to penetrate the skin at different depths for ultimate customization. We can target your exact problem areas to provide skin that is significantly improved and beautiful. 

What Can a Chemical Peel Address?

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Acne breakouts
  • Acne scarring
  • Sun damage and age spots
  • Dull complexion
  • Hyperpigmentation, melasma, and light freckles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin tone and texture
  • Dry, rough, or oily skin
  • Pre-cancerous lesions

How a Chemical Peel Works

A chemical peel gets rid of debris in the pores such as old makeup, oil, dirt, and sebum. The treatment also removes the upper level of damaged skin and uncovers the refreshed skin beneath. The result is clearer, softer, healthier skin.

What to Expect During a Chemical Peel

Chemical peels take approximately 30-60 minutes. Before your peel is administered, your skin will be cleansed and prepped. We may also provide you with a mild local anesthetic if your peel will be more aggressive. The chemical solution is applied directly to the skin. As it dries, you may feel it tingling or burning a little. While the majority of patients find the treatment very tolerable, we encourage you to let us know if you’re too uncomfortable. When the peel is ready to be removed, we will clean it off and proceed to infuse your skin with topical skincare products. 

Downtime After a Chemical Peel

Your specific downtime will be determined by the type of chemical peel you have. For example, light peels allow you to go back to your regular day immediately.

Deeper peels are more aggressive and will require more downtime. During your consultation with us, we will go over the right peel for you and what you can expect during recovery.
