A skin-resurfacing procedure used to treat wrinkles, skin discoloration, and acne scars.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure that improves wrinkles, skin discoloration, and scars. During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layer. The depth of the peel will depend on the client’s desired results. The skin that grows back is smoother and more even toned.
Benefits of Chemical Peels
- Improves skin tone and texture
- Decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduces hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, and melasma
Who Would Benefit from a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels can benefit many skin types, but they are best suited for light skin tones or those who spend most of their time indoors. Chemical peels may not be suitable if you:
- Have taken certain acne medications (i.e., Amnesteem, Claravis, etc.) in the past six month
- Have olive or dark skin
- Have a history of developing keloids
- Have abnormal skin pigmentation
- Have a history of outbreaks of cold sores
What are the Possible Side Effects of a Chemical Peel?
There are several possible side effects that can occur after getting a chemical peel, including:
- Changes in skin color (more common in people with olive or dark skin tones)
How Often Should You Get a Chemical Peel?
We typically recommend that you get a chemical peel every two to five weeks. The frequency will depend on your skin concerns and desired results.
