Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are a skin treatment designed to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells on your face to reveal the healthier skin below. This new skin is firmer, clearer, and smoother, giving you immediate results and a more vibrant, younger-looking appearance.

The aesthetic team at Skin Glow Medical offers two types of in-office chemical peels using the latest advancements in skin care products from PCA Skin® and VI Peel® PURIFY. 

Both products can improve the overall health of your skin while addressing common skin flaws that age you.

What conditions can chemical peels treat?

The Skin Glow Medical team can address a variety of skin flaws and conditions using chemical peels. Based on your skin condition and type, the staff can recommend the right products for treating issues like:

  • Acne
  • Scars
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation

The team can also use chemical peels to rejuvenate the overall appearance of your skin, helping you look fresh and young.

How do chemical peels work?

During your chemical peel treatment, your Skin Glow Medical provider applies the chemicals to your skin’s surface. These chemicals include several types of acid that gently remove the surface layer of your skin and kill the bacteria in pores that trigger acne.

Your Skin Glow Medical provider determines how long the chemicals must remain on your skin to achieve your desired results based on your skin’s health and the conditions being treated.

What can I expect after a chemical peel?

For some, there are visible signs of peeling skin following your treatment. However, if you already exfoliate your skin at home, you may not have flaking or peeling skin after your chemical peel. This doesn’t mean your peel isn’t effective, only that the treatment is working at a cellular level.

Following your chemical peel, your skin may appear red or have mild swelling. These issues will resolve on their own within a day or two after treatment.

Your Skin Glow Medical provider gives you comprehensive care guidance to care for your skin after your peel. It’s important you keep your skin well-hydrated with a daily moisturizer and by drinking lots of water.
