Chemical Peel Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

If you’ve ever exfoliated your skin, you’re familiar with the basic concept behind chemical peels. The cells that make up our skin are constantly changing. With the creation of new, healthy skin cells, older cells get damaged and die. Those damaged and dead cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin, leaving it looking dull, dry, and aged. 

With exfoliation, you can remove some of those dead skin cells to improve your skin’s appearance. But a chemical peel goes much deeper.

By applying a carefully controlled amount of a specialized chemical solution, your A Beautiful You Medical Spa provider creates a reaction in your skin. Over the coming days, this causes the outermost layer of your skin to slough off and peel away, revealing radiant, healthy skin underneath. 

The skin care experts at A Beautiful You Medical Spa use only the best chemical peels available today. They offer peels with products from leading brands, including:

  • Skin Medica®
  • GlyMed Plus®
  • ZO® Skin Health

If you’re looking for a way to transform your skin, don’t hesitate to ask your A Beautiful You Medical Spa provider what a peel can do for you. 

What skin conditions can a chemical peel treat?

Your specialist personalizes the chemical peel to you and your skin goals. For example, your provider can offer a deeper peel for more dramatic results or a superficial peel to improve your skin with a minimal recovery period. 

Because they’re so versatile, chemical peels can treat a wide range of skin conditions. The team at A Beautiful You Medical Spa uses them to address:

  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Melasma
  • Acne
  • Fine lines
  • Large pores
  • Dullness
  • Scars, including from acne
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation

In some cases, one peel is sufficient to address your skin concern. Some patients choose a series of peels for more dramatic skin transformation. Talk with the team at A Beautiful You Medical Spa, and they can tailor a chemical peel treatment program for you. 

What should I expect after a chemical peel?

It depends on the depth of your peel. If you choose a superficial peel, you might experience some mild flaking for a few days. If you choose a deeper peel, you may experience redness and peeling for up to a week. As your skin peels, protect it from the sun to preserve your results.
