Exfoliate damaged skin
& boost collagen production

Chemical peels are dermatological treatments designed to improve skin texture, tone, and appearance. These treatments involve applying a chemical solution to the skin, which causes exfoliation and peeling. By removing the outer layers of damaged skin, chemical peels can address a variety of concerns, such as acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and uneven pigmentation. They stimulate collagen production, resulting in smoother, clearer, and more youthful-looking skin with enhanced radiance and elasticity.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rough or dull skin
  • Age spots or liver spots

How chemical peels work

Chemical peels work by inducing controlled exfoliation through the application of various chemical solutions to the skin. These solutions typically contain acids such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), or trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Upon application, these acids penetrate the epidermis, causing the outer layers of damaged or dead skin cells to slough off. This process stimulates cell turnover and collagen production, leading to smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin with reduced imperfections and enhanced texture.

Benefits of chemical peels:

  • Improved skin texture and tone
  • Enhanced collagen production
  • Boosted skin radiance and glow
  • Customizable treatment options for various skin concerns
  • Minimal downtime compared to surgical procedures
  • Safe and effective for most skin types and tones

Your chemical peels session

Your chemical peel in Shelby Township begins with a thorough consultation, where we assess your skin concerns and goals. Once determined, we’ll customize a peel tailored to your specific needs. During the session, your skin will be cleansed to remove any impurities and oils. The selected chemical peel will be applied evenly to your skin, where you may experience mild tingling or warmth. After the appropriate duration, the peel will be neutralized, and soothing post-treatment products will be applied to calm and nourish your skin.

Chemical peels FAQs

Are chemical peels suitable for all skin types?

While chemical peels can be beneficial for many skin types, they may not be suitable for everyone. Individuals with certain skin conditions, such as eczema, rosacea, or active infections, may not be good candidates for chemical peels. Our skincare professionals will determine if a chemical peel in Shelby Township is right for you.

Is there any downtime after a chemical peel?

The downtime after a chemical peel can vary depending on the type and strength of the peel used. Superficial peels typically require minimal downtime, with some redness and flaking that usually resolves within a few days. Medium and deep peels may result in more significant peeling and downtime, with recovery times ranging from several days to a couple of weeks.

How many treatments are needed to see results?

The number of treatments needed to see results can vary depending on your skin concerns and the type of peel used. Some may see improvements after just one treatment, while others may require multiple treatments spaced several weeks apart to achieve their desired results. Your skincare provider can recommend a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
