While facials are a typical face treatment, a chemical peel is something you may not know much about. But they can do wonders and leave your skin feeling better than ever.

In this blog, we will give you more information about chemical peels and what we offer at our day spa. Read on to learn more.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is used to improve the skin’s appearance. During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the skin which causes it to exfoliate. The top layer of skin will eventually peel off leaving a fresh, new, and younger looking layer of skin. The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery mentions that chemical peels can be used  to treat:

  • Acne scars
  • Scars
  • Aging skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damaged skin

Deep wrinkles and sagging skin may not respond to chemical peels as well.

Who Should Get a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels generally offer better results for those with fair skin and light hair. However, those with darker skin may see good results depending on the type of chemical peel they get and the problems being targeted. One of our licensed and experienced skin care professionals can help to determine if a chemical peel is right for you and your skin before receiving the treatment.

What Are The Benefits?

As we already mentioned, chemical peels can help in a lot of different areas. The chemical solution used can differ based on the skin concerns you want targeted. This could be anything from wrinkles to acne, but most chemical peels will leave your skin with a more youthful appearance, even complexion, and smoother texture.

There are many benefits to a chemical peel. As a non-surgical option for younger and healthier skin, it is a great way to get a makeover without having to undergo an intense operation or a long recovery time. If your skin is wrinkled, sun-damaged, or has an uneven skin tone, a chemical peel can help to rid your skin of these blemishes, helping to give you a younger look.

The chemical peels offered at The Skin & Body Spa can be regular chemical peels or advanced and include:

  • Anti-aging treatment
  • Hyperpigmentation treatment
  • Treatment for sensitive skin
  • Acne treatments
  • Derm renewal peel
  • Intense antioxidant peel
  • Diamond peel
  • Organic reishi mushroom peel

Along with these peels, we also offer smoothing body peels and the option of adding a retinal booster. To figure out which peel will work best for you and to get a pre-treatment kit, make sure to schedule a peel consultation with our knowledgeable staff. We can help you choose a peel based on your skin and desired results.

After getting a chemical peel (depending on the type of peel you get), sunburn like symptoms will be present. Once the skin peels, you can enjoy the results of smoother and younger looking skin. Your skin takes about three to seven business days to recover and treatments can be repeated every few weeks until you reach your desired look.

A chemical peel could be the procedure you need for skin that you love. If you have tried different facials, beauty products, and DIY face masks but are not seeing the results you want, it is time to try something more advanced. Chemical peels could be perfect options for you. If you want to learn more about chemical peels and if you could benefit from one of these treatments, contact The Skin & Body Spa today.
