Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are a type of exfoliant that uses a chemical solution to remove the outermost layers of your skin, revealing a fresh layer of healthy skin cells. They are versatile treatments that can address a wide range of skin issues. 

Peels are a great option for those who cannot tolerate light-based therapies. They are also a good alternative to radiofrequency treatments. Many people incorporate chemical peels into their ongoing skin care routine. 

What skin conditions can chemical peels improve?

Chemical peels leave your skin with a noticeable glow, looking refreshed and renewed. Some of the specific skin conditions that chemical peels can treat include:

  • Discoloration due to sun damage
  • Acne scarring
  • Melasma
  • Clogged pores
  • Irregularities in texture and tone
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Depending on the condition of your skin and your desired results, you may need a series of chemical peels to achieve the best possible effects. 

What happens during a chemical peel?

Indigo MedSpa uses a medium-strength chemical peel, which delivers a powerful effect without the extreme sensitivity and downtime of a deeper peel. When you arrive, your practitioner gently cleanses your skin before applying a thin layer of the chemical solution. 

You can relax as the peel goes to work. You may feel a slight tingling or stinging sensation, but there is no significant discomfort associated with chemical peels. Once the peel has had time to work into your skin, your practitioner gently removes the solution. 

You may experience a degree of mild redness, tenderness, and swelling after your chemical peel. It’s important to note that your skin will be more sensitive to the sun for a few days, so take care to use a good-quality sunscreen and avoid prolonged time outdoors. 

The outermost layers of your skin will begin to peel within a few days of your treatment. Don’t pick at the peeling areas or try to speed the process by any form of manual exfoliation.
