What Are Chemical Peels?

If you have moderate-to-severe complexion issues – like wrinkles and fine lines, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone – you may need a chemical peel to see faster results. At Skinatomy Laser Clinic, we offer a wide range of chemical peel treatments to help patients achieve their ideal complexion.

How Does a Chemical Peel Work?

A chemical peel is a procedure used to treat acne, skin issues, and help with cell rejuvenation. Alpha hydroxyl acid, an acid derived from almond fruit, is used as the base ingredient in mesoesthetic chemical peels. The producers are non-intrusive, gentle on the skin, and in most cases, allow clients to resume their daily routine right after a treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate For a Chemical Peel?

You’re a good candidate for a chemical peel if you have moderate to severe symptoms of common complexion issues like wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?

A typical treatment takes about an hour to perform; however, your time may vary, depending on the severity of your complexion concerns.

What Results Will I See?*

You should start seeing a more refreshed and rejuvenated complexion after about 2 to 3 weeks, with final results visible within one month. You may need more than one chemical peel treatment to see ideal results.

Is There Any Downtime?

Chemical peels are pretty strong, so you should anticipate having a red and slightly swollen skin for a week or two. You’ll also notice some scabbing, as this is the dead skin that’s flaking away from your complexion. You’ll need to wear sunscreen after your procedure to help protect skin against UV rays.
