What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are a chemical solution that exfoliates and revitalizes skin on the face, neck, décolleté, arms, and hands. Your SOC Med Spa provider applies the peel to the skin to remove superficial dead skin layers, naturally increasing collagen production, leaving smooth and younger skin.

Chemical peels are one of the most popular skin care treatments available. They give your skin a refreshed healthy glow, taking years off of age and sun-related issues as well as scarring and discolorations related to other hereditary and environmental causes that affect your appearance.

Just like other cosmetic procedures, there is a wide range of chemical combinations, strengths and techniques for chemical peels. Consultations can be made to help determine the most appropriate type and level of chemical peel to address the problem and offer a satisfying result.

What Skin Conditions Can These Peels Treat?

Chemical peels are safe and effective procedures for improving a variety of skin irregularities and conditions, including:

  • Facial blemishes
  • Brown spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines
  •  Precancerous lesions
  • Acne and acne scars

While chemical peels cannot completely remove signs of aging, they can restore your skin to a healthy, beautiful appearance.

Who is a Candidate for Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels truly can retexturize and restore radiance to your skin. However, it’s important to note that chemical peels do not diminish the appearance of blood vessels on the skin, remove keloid-type scars, and are not a substitute for a facelift or other Botox/filler type procedures.
People who receive the most benefit from a chemical peel are those who are looking to treat sun damaged skin, aging skin, remove fine wrinkles, and treat skin discoloration with light to dark skin tones.
Additionally, people who have taken specific medications such as Accutane within the past 12 months should not receive chemical peel treatment. For specific questions regarding treatment, please contact us.

What Should I Do After a Peel?

Following your chemical peel, it’s important to avoid becoming sunburned or tanned for at least 6 weeks after treatment. While walking can be resumed after your peel, you should avoid strenuous activity for 2 to 3 days. When going outside, it is recommended that you wear a hat and apply sunscreen of at least SPF 30.

It’s common for peeling to last for 3 to 5 days after your treatment. A gentle moisturizer can also be used to help with the healing process. We will also provide you with complimentary skincare products to use after your peel.

How Long is the Recovery from a Chemical Peel?

The amount of time it takes for your skin to heal after a chemical face peel will depend on the specific peel formula used. Light to medium strength skin peel treatments typically begin to peel after 2 to 3 days and last for up to 1 week. Deeper peels can peel for up to 1 week.

What to Expect

Before Your Appointment

You’ll want to avoid specific activities and medications prior to your SOC Med Spa appointment. Your provider will discuss these items with you, including avoiding direct sunlight, tanning beds, and specific medications and topical creams like Retinols and Glycolic Acids.

During Your Appointment

Your skin will be gently cleansed prior to the treatment, removing any oil. Your SOC Med Spa provider will then apply a chemical peel solution to your skin. The peels work to exfoliate skin by removing dead surface skin layers. Some patients report a slight feeling of stinging, but this is very mild, and no sedation or anesthetic is required.

Our chemical peel treatment takes 30 minutes.

After Your Appointment

You will need to avoid becoming sunburned or tanned for at least 6 weeks after treatment. Wear sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and a hat when going outside. You should also avoid any strenuous activity for 2 to 3 days. Walking is permitted as long as you do not sweat.

Peeling will last anywhere from 3 days to up to 1 week following your treatment, depending on the specific chemical peel strength that was applied to your skin. Your skin will appear slightly red during this time, this is normal and will pass after several days. We will provide you with specific aftercare skin instructions and provide you with a post-treatment kit.
