What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel removes layers of skin to reveal new, vibrant-looking skin cells. Deeper peels can remove more layers of skin, removing damaged skin cells so healthy ones can take their place. Chemical peels may use alpha or beta hydroxy acids, glycolic acid, or other chemicals. Your skincare expert will choose a peel to give you the desired results.
What Types of Chemical Peels Are There?
We offer superficial, medium, and deep peels, all medical-grade and administered by experienced skincare professionals. A superficial peel exfoliates the skin, removing dull outer layers to brighten and refresh. A medium peel reaches deeper layers of skin, treating skin concerns like sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. The deepest peels reach all the way to the dermis to remove damaged cells.
How Often Should You Get Chemical Peels?
The results of lighter peels fade more quickly, but you can have these peels more often. Many people have a light peel monthly to keep skin bright and healthy. After a medium peel, the skin needs longer to recover, but results will last longer, so you can get one every four to six months. Deep peels require significant recovery time, and they are only recommended every few years. However, they have the most long-lasting and noticeable results.
During your consultation, we will review the types of chemical peels, their results and expected recovery time, and how often you can expect to have one. While light peels require more frequent treatments, they also have much less downtime than medium or deep peels, so many people prefer them. Regularly scheduled peels will keep your skin glowing, youthful, and healthy.
