Chemical peels improve the appearance of fine lines, age spots, sun damage, pregnancy mask (melasma), mild discoloration, persistent acne and dull fatigued skin.

Getting a chemical peel usually follows a sequence and effects as described below.

  • A consultation with a Skin Specialist to determine if a Chemical Peel treatment is right for you

  • A light peel solution is applied to the skin to exfoliate and regenerate skin

  • A mild stinging sensation may be present during the treatment. After the chemical peel you may be red and flaky for a few days

  • Results are cumulative and will diminish without regular in-spa professional peels and at home maintenance

  • A series of three to six are typically recommended, spaced no more than two to three weeks apart

  • Lasers, light devices, BOTOX® Cosmetic, and photodynamic therapy boosters are suggested for long term meaningful results

  • Regular maintenance and at-home care is required to maintain results

Things to consider before requesting a Chemical Peel Treatment:

Downtime depends upon the type of peel, generally the more aggressive results desired, the longer the downtime
Pink discoloration and post-treatment flaking is to be expected; this is a temporary condition that resolves in a few days
Sun block is a must to due to increased sun sensitivity

What chemical might be present in a Chemical Peel Treatment?

Lactic (Alpha-Hydroxy acid): Employed to treat such conditions as photo-damage, hyper-pigmentation, reduction of fine lines and superficial wrinkles, a lightening of surface pigmentation, and softer, supple skin with improved hydration
Resorcinol: Removes the top, surface layer of the stratum corneum and is used particularly in cases of acne
Salicylic (Beta-Hydroxy acid): An aggressive surface skin exfoliant. Reduces sebaceous follicle blockage, has antimicrobial action, excellent for the treatment of acne
Panthenol (Vitamin B-5): Stimulates cellular proliferation and aid in tissue repair
Saponins: Glycoside compounds. The properties function as a "natural antibiotic" for fungal infections, and to combat microbes and viruses
Retinoic Acid

Please note the pH of the peel varies by peel type. Each individual responses to each peel differently.
