Chemical Peel

Chemical peels have been used for decades in medical cosmetology. Cleopatra first introduced her version of a chemical peel, bathing in sour milk (lactic acid) to produce smooth skin. While dermatologists pioneered skin peeling for therapeutic benefit beginning in 1882.

 

Today we can synergize the knowledge of 100 years to produce highly effective and safe peeling by blending agents for maximum facial rejuvenation!

 

Chemical peels, or facial peels, are an accelerated form of exfoliation, that is induced by a chemical agent which is applied to the skin to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin.

The peels help lighten, tighten, and brighten the skin, which enhances and smoothes the texture of the skin.

About the treatment

Chemical Peel Session

During a chemical peel, we will apply the exfoliant acid first to the thicker areas of skin, such as the chin, nose, and cheeks, before applying it to the thinner areas around the eyes and mouth.

After the chemical peel, we may use cool saline compresses to remove any remaining exfoliant.

Chemical peels often cause redness and peeling, which may take 1–2 weeks to go away. It is important to keep the face dry and not to shower or use face wash for the first 24 hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chemical Peel FAQs

What is a chemical peel?

A special chemical solution is applied to the skin, for a specified amount of time to initiate the removal of the outermost layer of skin or deeper skin layers. The time the solution is left on the skin varies between 2-15 minutes, depending on the type of peel, peel treatment number, and the skins’ response to the solution.

What are the contraindications?

Peels are not recommended for people with very sensitive skin, active cold sores, undiagnosed lesions, diabetes, auto-immune disorders, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis or lupus.

What areas can be treated?

Peels can be applied to the entire face or individual areas that require treatment, such as sun damage or to control acne.* Other areas that can be treated are the neck and décolleté.

How many peels I need?

This is a variable and depends on your skin condition and skin type. All peels are customized to each individual, but all are managed using a step-up approach, which begins at the superficial layer with gradual increases to enable the skin to safely and effectively reach a Level 3 peel, if required. In general 4-8 peels are needed for optimum results, scheduled every 10-14 days or as required.* Please note: chemical peels are not effective for removal of medium or deep acne scars and will not clear skin from acne, if used as a stand-alone procedure.

What other treatments can be done with a chemical peel?

Effective combinations for skin rejuvenation and acne control include: microdermabrasion (micropeel), laser photofacials or laser genesis. Customized combination therapy can be discussed during your complimentary consultation.

What should I expect during & after the treatment?

Chemical peels are usually very gentle and create a temporary sensation of tingling (activity) or warm flushing to the skin during application. Your skin may be pink for several hours after a treatment and you may experience some tightening of the skin, which may last for several days. Typically you may return to work right after the peel. The amount of peeling, if any, varies from person to person. You may see light to medium flaking by two or three days after the treatment. Depending on the type of peel, flaking up may last up to five or six days, while some clients may experience very little peeling.
