Whether you’re bothered by the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone or other signs of skin discoloration, your Certified Advanced Aesthetician may recommend a chemical peel. What exactly is a chemical peel anyway, and how can you pick the options that are right for you?

What Is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes various plant and sugar acids to remove dead skin cells, dirt and other debris that may be built up on the surface of the skin*. Before and after your chemical peel, you may be provided with a specific skin care routine to follow.

For example, prior to your treatment, your Certified Advanced Aesthetician will cleanse your face with a special solution to prep your skin. After your chemical peel, it’s important to avoid direct sun exposure and use a daily moisturizer.

Your Chemical Peel Options

The best type of chemical peel for you will depend on your skin type, condition and goals.

Different peels contain different types and concentrations of acids and can range from mild to deep. The most appropriate option will be recommended based on your unique needs. The fact that chemical peels are so highly customizable is one reason they remain such a commonly recommended anti-aging med spa treatment.

Additionally, a series of chemical peels spaced several weeks or months apart may be recommended. The frequency that you go in for this treatment will depend on which type of peel you choose and how sensitive or resistant your skin naturally is.
