Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are an aesthetic treatment that helps improve and smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layer. The skilled team at Aesthetic and Clinical Dermatology Associates uses chemical peels to treat many common aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Acne
  • Wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Scars
  • Melasma
  • Age spots

Chemical peels smooth the skin on your face and remove precancerous growths to produce healthy, glowing skin. The team uses different kinds of chemical peels, including Salift, Vitalift, and Acculift, ranging from mild to strong. 

Am I a good candidate for a chemical peel?

Your specialist at Aesthetic and Clinical Dermatology Associates determines the best aesthetic treatment for you when you come in for a consultation. The practice offers many advanced beauty regimens and works closely with you to develop the most appropriate and effective treatment plan to help you achieve your beauty goals.

To get the most dramatic results, your specialist may suggest other complementary treatments along with your chemical peel, depending on your skin care and aesthetic goals.

What can I expect during a chemical peel?

Before your chemical peel is applied, your skin is cleansed and prepped. Then, with a special brush, your aesthetic expert at Aesthetic and Clinical Dermatology Associates applies the solution to your skin. You may feel a slight stinging sensation as the peel penetrates the outer layer of your skin.

Your chemical peel is left in place for a set period of time, depending on the type of chemical peel used. Then your peel is removed with a cool compress, and a special moisturizer is applied.

How long does it take to recover from a chemical peel?

Recovery from a chemical peel may depend on the type of peel applied to your skin. The harsher the peel, the longer recovery will take.

Some chemical peels cause large areas of dead skin to form that need to be removed to let the fresh skin underneath come through. You could combine your chemical peel with another treatment to enjoy an even more youthful appearance.
