Chemical Peel

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a treatment in which a specially-formulated concoction of chemicals is applied to the skin to create a controlled wound that causes layers of skin to blister and then peel off, revealing new skin that shows fewer signs of aging.

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

The new skin that emerges after a peel will be smoother, brighter, and less wrinkled than the layers of skin that have been removed, leaving you with a radiant complexion that looks natural and youthful.

A chemical peel can transform the appearance of these conditions and more:

  • Sun damage
  • Mild to moderate wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Acne
  • Dark spots and freckles

If you have deeper wrinkles or sagging skin, a chemical peel may not be the most effective treatment, but you do have other options.

What are the different types of peels?

Chemical peels are categorized by the depth of the layers of skin they can reach. Elements Rejuvenating Med Spa uses high-quality, clinically tested formulas that fall into one of these three categories:

Superficial Peels

Superficial peels remove only the upper layers of skin, known as the epidermis, for a brightening effect.

Medium Peels

Medium peels reach through the epidermis to the upper layers of the dermis to remove the skin cells that form blemishes before they’re visible.

Deep Peels

Deep peels can reach the very deep layers of the dermis to the roots of blemishes for the most dramatic results.

What should I expect during a chemical peel treatment?

One of the trained, experienced professionals at Elements Rejuvenating Med Spa will begin by thoroughly cleansing your skin so that the treatment can penetrate most effectively. They’ll then apply the chemical solutions carefully to your skin for just the right amount of time to create the desired level of injury.

When the procedure is complete, they’ll gently remove the peel and apply products that relieve discomfort and assist the healing process. Deep peels will require bandaging. They’ll then send you home with tips to keep your skin nourished and protected for optimal results.

How long is the downtime of a chemical peel?

Downtime depends on the depth of your peel.

Superficial peels require no downtime, although you may have some mild redness. Medium peels require 1-5 days of downtime. Deep peels require significant after-care and at-home recuperation for about two weeks.

After any peel, you’ll need to limit sun exposure and be diligent about using sunscreen. If you follow your provider's instructions and take care of your skin after treatment, serious side effects, such as scarring, are very unlikely.
