We all desire to have radiant and flawless complexions, free from imperfections. While over-the-counter creams offer some benefits, they may only provide limited results in reversing the underlying issues that accumulate over time. Chemical peels, on the other hand, penetrate deeper layers of the skin, effectively addressing these concerns and promoting healthier, glowing skin.

What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are a popular non-invasive treatment used to treat a variety of skin concerns. Customized chemical solutions contain ingredients like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, and other chemical exfoliants that strip away dead or damaged skin cells to reveal a healthier layer of skin. At Aesthetic Clinique, we offer several medical-grade peels, including:

  • Vitalize Peel: a light peel that is safe for all skin types and requires little downtime
  • Rejuvenize Peel: a medium peel that results in 2-5 days of peeling
  • Illuminize Peel: a mild peel that instantly brightens the skin

What Skin Concerns Do Chemical Peels Transform?

Chemical peels rejuvenate skin tone, texture, and clarity by peeling away the surface layers of damaged skin. Peels can reduce fine lines around the eyes and mouth; smooth rough patches for a supple feel; lighten sun spots, age spots, and melasma; shrink enlarged pores; and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Deep chemical peels that target the middle layers of the skin also treat mild acne scarring, alleviate actinic keratosis scales, and restore glow to dull, tired complexions. Patients see these dramatic yet gentle improvements on facial, neck, and hand skin through customized solutions and depths.

Understanding Chemical Peel Risk Factors

Chemical peels remarkably transform skin when done properly and risks are minimal, although still possible. Temporary redness, scabbing, swelling, and changes in pigmentation occur commonly as the skin adjusts post-procedure but these side effects often resolve within a few days or up to two weeks, depending on the depth of the peel. 

Patients with a history of cold sores, keloid scarring, or recent isotretinoin use are often advised against receiving chemical peels, particularly medium or deep peels, due to increased risk of complications. Additionally, for deep peels, precautions related to cardiac, kidney, and liver health may limit the concentration of ingredients, making a light peel or gentler treatment a safer choice. During your consultation, we will thoroughly review your medical history to assess whether a chemical peel is suitable for you.

Preparing For Your Best Chemical Peel Experience

A customized peel plan starts with choosing an expert aesthetician or skin care specialist who examines your skin and discusses your goals thoroughly before tailoring a treatment regimen. At Aesthetic Clinique, our highly trained team of aestheticians and nurses are dedicated to safe treatments that best meet each patient’s individual concerns. At your consultation, we will discuss medications that could inhibit healing and offer recommendations for post-treatment skincare that will soothe and protect your healing skin.
