Chemical Peels

How do chemical peels work?

A chemical peel utilizes premium types of acids, such as glycolic, salicylic, or trichloroacetic acid (or a combination), to remove the damaged layer of your skin. These chemicals penetrate the surface of your skin and force it to exfoliate over the following days. As your skin heals, the fresher layer of skin underneath starts to make its way to the surface. 

But the benefits of chemical peels go deeper than the surface. Getting regular chemical peels (like once a month) initiates processes that lead to collagen production. This way, your skin tightens and firms from within, leaving you with dramatically younger-looking skin over time. 

What can a chemical peel treat?

Image Revolution Health and Wellness offers the most advanced types of chemical peels available: VI Peel® and SkinMedica® peels. These clinical-grade peels are highly beneficial for resolving all of those skin imperfections that leave you feeling self-conscious or embarrassed. Chemical peels are highly effective for minimizing the appearance of: 

  • Age spots
  • Melasma 
  • Sun damage
  • Brown spots
  • Crow’s feet
  • Hyperpigmentation 
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Lax or sagging skin
  • Scars, including acne scars

While you should experience a dramatic improvement with these issues (and others) shortly after your chemical peel at Image Revolution Health and Wellness, with regular peels, these imperfections improve even more. 

How long does it take my skin to heal after a chemical peel?

It depends on your specific peel and your desired outcome. Your doctor at Image Revolution Health and Wellness has a conversation with you about what you’d like to achieve, as well as any lifestyle considerations — such as an upcoming vacation — that may impact which peel you should get.

With a superficial or “lunchtime peel,” for instance, you can experience glowing skin immediately after your peel. No downtime is required. With a medium peel, your skin may flake and shed and be a little red for up to a week or two. 

To help your skin heal fast and to improve the health and appearance of your skin, Image Revolution Health and Wellness proudly offers SkinMedica products for purchase. You can even get a premium broad-spectrum sunscreen product to protect your skin as it heals (which is very important after a peel).
