Firstly, What is a chemical peel anyway? There are all different types of “peels” and with conflicting information out there it can be confusing or scary. Most procedures that are done on a whim are truly just a chemical exfoliation as apposed to a physical exfoliation which you may be familiar with. These are the everyday things we do for that beautiful glowing skin. These peels can be compared to dermaplaning, diamond dermabrasion or micro dermabrasion. These peels are better than physical exfoliation for sensitive or delicate skin types because they are not abrasive and usually have no down time. Depending on desired results, some peels can be done every 2 weeks to achieve maximum results. Especially when you are doing them in-between medical procedures like SkinPen, Laser or RF Microneedling. Keep in mind there is a post procedure kit required for aftercare for ALL peels and you need use the proper skincare routine.

Next we move up to low grade peels. They are usually a lower percentage chemical and usually have little down time maybe for a few days like flaking skin to peeling skin. They get a little deeper than just the dead skin. They stimulate cell turnover and help lighten and brighten the skin. They can help with any skin condition. We choose the formula based on your particular skin type and condition. It usually takes a series of three to six of this type of peel depending on how much damage you are trying to correct.

If you have severe hyperpigmentation or Melasma, acne, cystic acne or wrinkles then we need to be a bit more aggressive in our approach. We will get the skin ready a few weeks before the peels start with products for optimal end results. These usually have a week of down time. Sometimes you won’t peel at all which doesn’t mean it’s not working! This is a common misconception of the name PEEL. It doesn’t mean your skin will “peel” off. It means we apply a specific type or types of chemicals to your skin to activate the cell turnover process. It is stimulating collagen and creating new cell growth. But your skin can sill be sensitive and fragile that week needing extra protection from sun and environmental damage. You will need to follow a specific protocol for 7-10 days before returning to your normal skin care routine. We have made specific memberships for these types of situations with a complete monthly plan to follow to make the whole process affordable and easy for all of our clients. We also have a few at home peel options you can ask us about.

We also have a few medical grade peels that require you to speak with one of our Nurse Practitioners first to make sure this is right for your skin. These require weeks of prep but less treatments as they are much deeper. You will see your results quicker but you will also have to allow for 7-10 days of down time. They can be a bit pricier but you need less of them so it usually works out to be not too different in cost. The real difference is not everyone has the availability for the down time required and these have a stronger sting/Irritant effect for the several minutes they are on the skin as it’s a higher percentage in chemicals. We calm this stinging sensation with fans to ease this process. So to recap, quicker results = more upfront cost and downtime.
