The benefits of chemical peels

Chemical Peels are a popular treatment used to deeply exfoliate the skin, improve texture, fine lines, and wrinkles, and minimize mild scarring. After a chemical peel, patients find that the appearance of blemishes and skin damage is significantly reduced. Your skin will feel and look brighter and smoother. Chemical peels offer a solution for a variety of common skin concerns. Chemical peels are an excellent option for youthful-looking skin that lasts for months – at any age!

How it works

Chemical peels work by using specific acid solutions to remove the outermost layer of dead skin, revealing smoother, healthier skin underneath. Chemical peels can be applied to the face, neck, and body.

Are chemical peels safe for everyone?

Chemical peels are a safe and effective method of treating a wide variety of skin concerns. Chemical peels at New Age Spa are offered in different strengths such as light, medium, and deep, depending on the treated skin conditions. Each type of chemical peel strength uses different chemical formulas and levels of power. Deeper chemical peels are intended for deep skin corrections such as scars and wrinkles, producing dramatic results that involve longer recovery times.

Chemical Peel Side Effects

Chemical peels are safe and involve little to no discomfort. Patients might experience slight burning or stinging sensation during or after the treatment. In general, any discomfort is minimal, and the overall treatment will be gentle and relaxing. You’ll leave our spa feeling refreshed and glowing. In the days following a chemical peel, your skin will feel temporarily dry and appear slightly red before peeling to reveal the smooth, radiant skin beneath.

Chemical peel consultation

The process

Chemical peels are applied to the skin to help remove the outermost layer of dead skin to reveal a smoother texture and improved appearance of the skin afterward. After a chemical peel treatment, your skin is smoother and less wrinkled. Peels can be done on the face, neck, and body, and results can last months. We also offer a chemical peel on the back for clients interested in a back facial.

Chemical peel procedure

The esthetician then begins the procedure with a thorough double cleanse that involves a pre-cleanse balm before a cleansing gel to remove all makeup, sunscreen, toxins, and impurities.

The next step involves a one-step prep lotion to prime the skin for the chemical peel. Next, the esthetician applies the chemical solution, a blend of a few or several different acids available.

Afterward, a neutralizing solution is applied to the skin to soothe and rebalance the pH before a face mask and light therapy meant to help your skin achieve your desired results is used.

What Should I Do Before A Skin Peel?

Don’t exfoliate for at least a week before your chemical peel. This is because a chemical peel is a more intensive version of exfoliation, and you don’t want to overdo it. Wearing no makeup in the few days before your chemical peel also helps with efficacy. If you are using products that dry out your skin, be sure to have stopped taking them days before and stay hydrated before your chemical peel session and on the day of. Any Retin-A, glycolic acid, Accutane, or Renova should have been stopped before your chemical peel.

What to expect

Chemical peels are typically offered to people with medium photoaging (including fine lines and wrinkles) when topical treatments containing retinoids, retinol, vitamin C, and alpha-hydroxy acid have not brought the desired results.

Immediately after your appointment, you will notice a slight redness and a fresh, clean feel to your skin. In the following week, there may be minor peeling in arid areas of your skin. However, these areas will peel off and reveal beautiful young skin underneath. The side effects following your appointment will not be intense, and you can go to work without concern. Just follow your esthetician’s guidelines.

What To Do After A Chemical Peel?

Always wear sunscreen after your chemical peel treatment because your skin will be more sensitive. Also, choose an SPF 30 or higher broad-spectrum and physical sunscreen, not chemical sunscreen. You should limit your time in the sun, in general, during peak sunshine hours, and if you need to be outdoors for long stretches in the immediate aftermath of your chemical peel, wear a wide-brimmed hat to shade your face.

Your skin may peel in the first few days after your chemical peel, but that should be no surprise as it is in the name! Stay hydrated, and this will minimize this. Using a hyaluronic acid serum will help with this, as will aloe vera and calming gels.

Wait at least two weeks before returning for another chemical peel.

Chemical peel strengths

The chemical peels procedure can be done with strengths— light, medium or deep — depending on the skin condition that is treated. Each type of chemical peel uses a different chemical formula and power. Deeper chemical peels are intended for deeper skin corrections such as scars and wrinkles, produce dramatic results, and involve longer recovery times. We use Dermalogica’s Pro Power Peel series to offer our clients top-of-the-line results.

Chemical Peel Contraindications

Fairer-skinned people have more even results with chemical peels. Those with darker skin tones might also have good outcomes but are more likely to notice uneven complexion afterward. People with severe wrinkles, skin sags, and bulges may not have the best results with chemical peels. In those cases, other options might be better suited to you.

If you have recurring cold sores, this would be important to mention to your esthetician, as a chemical peel has the chance of reactivating them. Also, if you take birth control pills, are pregnant, or have a family history of skin discoloration, you might have an increased chance of a chemical peel resulting in an uneven complexion.

You should also stop Retin-A, glycolic acid, Accutane, or Renova if you take those medications. Suppose you have severe rosacea or acne, a sunburn, an active infection, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, a weakened immune system, or recently got permanent cosmetics. In that case, you might also be unable to receive a chemical peel.

Your esthetician will ask you these questions during your consultation when they determine if this treatment is proper for you and which acids to use for your peel to attain the results you desire.
