• wrinkles and fine lines
• sun damage
• acne scars
• hyperpigmentation
• scars
• melasma
• uneven skin tone or redness

Chemical Peels

How It Works

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
