Chemical Peels

What's It For?

 

 

Chemical peels target hyperpigmentation, acne, texture, acne scarring, large pores and give the skin a luminous glow. 

 

 

 

How Does It Work? 

 

 

A chemical peel is a procedure that utilizes a solution of actives (mainly acids) to induce a controlled injury to the outermost layers of the skin. The body removes the damaged skin via “peeling,” and the new skin that is revealed underneath has improved texture and more even pigment. Chemical peels also work beautifully to improve acne/blemishes by increasing the cell turnover rate of the skin. Depending on the concern being targeted, as well as the area being treated, multiple sessions may be required for optimal results. Patients are provided with medical grade skincare to optimize and maintain their results.

Does do chemical peels hurt? 

This varies depending on the chemical peel itself and the patients pain tolerance. The Reve Peel Fresh and Reve Peel Enlighten Plus are not particularly "spicy". However, the Reve Peel Classic can be for many. Patients are provided a fan to help with the initial stinging sensation. Once the peel has dried, the stinging sensation is very mild and tolerable. It will remain like this until it is washed off. Upon washing the peel off the skin will feel like you experienced a sunburn. Utilizing the appropriate skincare (that will be recommended) will help soothe your skin and improve your results from the peel. 

How long does it take to see results? 

Patients will experiencing peeling usually starting on the third day after the chemical peel. It will take a full week for the patient to stop peeling (there may be some residual peeling one to two days after). Once the patient has stopped peeling they can fully appreciate their results from the chemical peel. 

What’s the downtime? 

The downtime is a week. Meaning, patients will be peeling throughout the week and need to be extremely conscious of avoiding sun exposure for the first week. SPF 50+ should be utilized following the chemical peel for at least two weeks to ensure proper protection. 

Is this safe to do during the Summer? 

It depends. Chemical peels can be safe to do in the Summer if the patient is completely out of the sun during the week long recovery period. They must also have very limited sun exposure during the second week of treatment, along with appropriate sun protection (SPF 50+). Many patients find this challenging during the Summer months, but if they do want to proceed with a chemical peel it is possible with the appropriate safety parameters in place.   

I have deep acne scars, will a chemical peel help?
