Chemical Peels

Frequently Asked Questions

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are a kind of like a chemical exfoliation/abrasion. These peels cause all the old, icky skin cells that cause discoloration, acne, scars and fine lines to slough (or peel) off and regrow new, baby-fresh cells on your face. So it will be as soft, silky and smooth as a baby’s you-know-what. Most spa-goers will require 3-4 treatments.

What can I expect?

You will have an agent applied to your skin at the spa. It will be left on for a few minutes and you may feel slight tingling. Some peels will need to be neutralized with a second agent and some won’t. Like anything, depending on the patient, the strength of the peel, the post-procedure hydration and the phase of the moon, everyone will have different amounts of peeling and some people may not notice any peeling at all.

When will I see results?

This depends on the type of peel. You will usually have peeling and flaking of the skin for about three days to one week, after which time you will begin to see the new, fresh skin begin to regenerate.

How long do the results last?

Results are quite varied and depend upon the patient, how many times you have had it done and what we are treating. You can expect results to last anywhere from two months to two years. The more you baby your skin, the longer your results will last.

In what body areas can I get it?

Face, neck, décolleté, back and buttocks are the most common areas.
