Chemical Peels

Chemical peels use various acids to chemically remove dead skin cells, revealing a fresh layer of skin. Each peel will use various acids to specifically target the clients skin needs. Benefits range from reducing acne, hydrating, lightening, reducing inflammation, to helping increase collagen production. Our medical spa uses products that are professional to medical grade, ensuring consistency and safety for our clients. If you have not received a chemical peel from our practice you will want to book either a general consult or another treatment of your choice where you can discuss you goals with our Esthetician. Peels are for clients who have prepped their skin through a recent series of facials as well as an appropriate home skincare plan. This way we can ensure your skin is ready for a series of chemical peels and receive the best outcome.  


Answers to commonly asked questions about chemical peels including their uses, expected results, and potential side effects.

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin. This solution exfoliates the outer layers of the skin, promoting cell turnover and revealing a smoother, more youthful complexion.

Chemical peels work by removing damaged skin cells, stimulating collagen production, and improving skin texture. They help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Chemical peels are effective in treating various signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, sunspots, and skin dullness.

There are different types of chemical peels, ranging from superficial to deep peels. Superficial peels target the outermost layer of the skin and provide a mild exfoliation. Medium and deep peels penetrate deeper layers of the skin, offering more significant results for advanced signs of aging.

Most patients experience a mild tingling or warm sensation during the chemical peel treatment. Superficial peels typically have minimal discomfort, while medium and deep peels may cause more significant discomfort, which can be managed with topical anesthesia.

The number of sessions required depends on the specific type of chemical peel and the individual’s skin condition. Superficial peels may require a series of treatments, while medium and deep peels often provide noticeable results after just one session.

The downtime varies depending on the depth of the peel. Superficial peels may cause minimal redness and peeling that lasts for a few days. Medium and deep peels may involve more downtime, with some peeling and redness lasting up to a week or more.

The duration of results depends on the type of chemical peel and individual skin factors. Superficial peels may require regular maintenance treatments, while medium and deep peels can provide longer-lasting results.

Temporary side effects of chemical peels may include redness, peeling, and mild irritation. These effects are usually short-lived and resolve as the skin heals.

Most individuals with signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, are good candidates for chemical peels. A consultation with our experienced medical practitioners will help determine the most suitable type of chemical peel for your specific skin concerns.
