Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments applied to your face, hands, and neck. They are used to improve the appearance of skin and bring back your natural glow. Chemical solutions are applied to your skin which causes the skin to exfoliate eventually peel off. When the damaged skin peels off, the new skin underneath is smoother, has fewer wrinkles and damage. After chemical peels, you are left with smooth and glowing skin.

Chemical Peels FAQ

Chemical peels remove the skin from the surface layer, either exposing fresh skin beneath or prompting the body to regenerate new surface skin.

Chemical peels are classified by their depth of penetration — superficial, moderate, and deep. Lighter peels exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis. These peels simply present fresher, healthier skin, and don’t require any downtime. Moderate and deep peels penetrate below the epidermis into the second layer, called the dermis. They cause more discomfort and require a period of healing time. Moderate to deep peels usually create anywhere from three to 10 days of facial peeling.

With any depth peel, your skin will look smoother, softer, and brighter. More aggressive chemical peels can address aging issues such as wrinkles and creases.

Chemical peels are generally safe when performed by experienced professionals like those at Glow Dermspa. We use high-quality, medical grade products and customize each treatment to ensure the best results with minimal risk.
While some clients may experience mild discomfort during a chemical peel, the sensation is often described as a tingling or burning sensation and is generally well tolerated. At Glow Dermspa, we take every measure to ensure your comfort throughout the process.
A chemical peel treatment at Glow Dermspa typically takes between 30-60 minutes, depending on the type and depth of the peel.
The frequency of chemical peels varies depending on your skin type, concerns, and the type of peel. Generally, we recommend spacing treatments 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results.

If you have the following skin conditions, chemical peels can be a good treatment:

  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Texture issues
  • Pigmentation problems
  • Age spots
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Freckles
  • Scaly patches

To have a peel, you cannot have any active skin conditions or infections.

Prior to your chemical peel, you want your skin to be in normal condition. These means don’t use any products that increase your skin’s sensitivity prior to your peel. These would be products such as Retin-A, products with retinol, benzoyl peroxide, or alpha-hydroxy acids. This also includes natural supplements or medications that increase skin sensitivity, along with treatments such as Intense Pulsed Light. Also, don’t have any hair removal treatments, be it waxing or depilatory creams or lasers, for at least one week before your peel.

Most peels are most effective with repeat treatments, usually from three to six. The treatments are spaced apart based on the depth of the peel and the necessary recovery time. Some patient’s who get regular skin care treatments and use a good skin care regimen at home, will opt for an occasional maintenance peel. Light peels can be done every month to keep your skin looking refreshed. Medium peels can only be done every three or four months.
After a peel, you need to limit your outdoor activities for at least one week. When you are outside, it’s imperative to wear 30 SPF or higher sunscreen.
We advise clients to wait at least 24 hours after a chemical peel before applying makeup to allow the skin to heal and avoid potential irritation.
We recommend avoiding strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours following a chemical peel to prevent excessive sweating, which can potentially irritate the skin.
It is generally best to consult with your physician before undergoing any treatments, including chemical peels, while pregnant.
Yes, chemical peels can be an effective treatment for acne by helping unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and improve skin texture.

How Chemical Peels work

Chemical peels work by using a specialized solution to gently exfoliate and remove the outermost layers of the skin, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath. This process stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen, helping to address a variety of skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and uneven pigmentation.

At Glow Dermspa, our skilled professionals will assess your skin and recommend the most suitable type of chemical peel, ranging from mild to deep, to achieve the best results for your unique needs.

What to Expect

During your appointment at Glow Dermspa, your provider will begin by discussing your skin concerns and desired outcomes. They will then thoroughly cleanse your skin and apply a customized chemical peel solution, tailored to your specific needs.

You may experience a mild tingling or burning sensation during the treatment, which usually subsides quickly. The duration of the peel will depend on the type and depth of the peel selected.

After the peel, your provider will apply a soothing cream to hydrate and protect your skin. You may notice some redness and peeling in the days following the treatment, which is a normal part of the healing process. Your practitioner will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results.

Chemical Peel Treatment Types

Chemical peels can be tailored to address a variety of skin concerns, thanks to the different types and strengths available. At Glow Dermspa, we customize each peel to suit your unique needs and desired outcomes. Here are some common treatment types and their benefits:
Ideal for first-time clients or those with sensitive skin, light peels gently exfoliate the skin’s surface with minimal downtime. These are often referred to as “no peel peels”. They can address mild skin imperfections, minor acne breakouts and bring a glow to the skin without downtime.
Medium peels penetrate the skin more deeply, targeting moderate skin concerns such as wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, and acne scarring. These peels often provide more noticeable results, but may require a slightly longer recovery period.
Deep peels offer the most dramatic results and are best suited for clients with more severe skin concerns, such as deep wrinkles, significant pigmentation issues, or severe acne scarring. These peels require a longer recovery period and close follow-up with our skincare specialists.
Chemical peels can help to unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and improve the overall appearance of acne-prone skin. The right peel can also help prevent future breakouts by promoting a healthier skin environment.

Chemical peels can address various pigmentation issues, including age spots, sunspots, and melasma, by encouraging the shedding of pigmented skin cells and promoting an even skin tone. At Glow, we also offer laser treatments, such as BBL or MOXI that more effectively address pigment concerns.

Chemical peels can help to smooth rough or uneven skin texture, by removing the top layers of dead skin, giving your complexion a brighter, more radiant appearance.
By stimulating collagen production and promoting skin regeneration, chemical peels can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leading to a more youthful and refreshed look.
For those with sensitive skin, gentle chemical peels are available to address skin concerns without causing irritation. These peels can provide a soothing exfoliation experience while still delivering noticeable results.
Chemical peels can be combined with other treatments, to achieve even more dramatic and comprehensive results. Our Glow Dermspa professionals will work with you to create a customized treatment plan to meet your specific needs.
