How Do Chemical Face Peels at Lushful Aesthetics Work?

A chemical peel 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. Facial chemical peels also work beautifully to improve acne/blemishes by increasing the cell turnover rate of the skin and may help to reduce acne scars. Depending on the concern being targeted, as well as the area being treated, multiple sessions may be required for optimal results if you want to utilize facial chemical peels for hyperpigmentation or dark spots. Patients of our men’s med spa who receive this service are provided with medical-grade skincare to optimize and maintain their results.

  • Do not wear makeup to your appointment at our NYC MedSpa. 

  • Avoid shaving, waxing, or chemical hair removal for at least 48 hours prior to your chemical face peel appointment. ​

  • If you’re prone to cold sores, begin taking your medication at least 3 days prior to your appointment.


Do chemical peels help with pigmentation?

Absolutely! Chemical peels for hyperpigmentation is a fantastic treatment option. The Reve Enlighten Peel is the gold standard chemical peel for hyperpigmentation and melasma. Proper medical grade skincare and strong sun protection is critical to maintain your results. 

Do chemical peels for your face hurt?

This varies depending on the chemical peel itself and the patient's pain tolerance. The Reve Peel Fresh and Reve Peel Enlighten Plus are not particularly "spicy". However, the Reve Peel Classic is a  strong chemical peel that will address several skin conditions. This peel can be more intense for many. We utilize a medical grade cooling device 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 post-care medical grade skincare provided will help soothe your skin and improve your results from the peel.

How long does it take to see results from a chemical face peel?

Patients will start peeling usually starting on the third day after the chemical peel treatment at our NYC MedSpa. 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, such as reduced acne scars, from the chemical peel.

I have melasma, can chemical face peels help me?

Yes! The Reve Enlighten Peel facial chemical peels works beautifully to help manage melasma. Patients must know however that melasma is a chronic issue that will consistently require maintenance treatments and a proper home skincare regimen. Patients need to be very conscious to always wear SPF 50+, and avoid heavy sun and heat exposure to slow down the return of their melasma.

Is Reve Enlighten Peel safe for all skin types? 

Yes, the Reve Enlighten Peel is safe for all skin types. All patients struggling with hyperpigmentation, melasma, and pigmented acne scars can benefit from the Reve Enlighten Peel. 

How long does the Reve Skin Peel last? 

The Reve Enlighten Peel is a corrective treatment for hyperpigmentation. As long as patients maintain their results with medical grade skincare then they shouldn’t have to repeat the Reve Enlighten Peel.

How long is the Reve Skin peel recovery time? 

The Reve Enlighten Peel is a full 6 week treatment kit. There’s two chemical peels included in the peel. After each peel there’s a week of downtime where patients will experience dry and flakey skin. The Reve Enlighten Peel kit contains all the post-care products the patient needs to recover from the chemical peel.

Should you moisturize after getting a chemical peel for hyperpigmentation treatment? 

Yes! The Reve Enlighten Peel kit comes with the appropriate post-care moisturizers to optimize your results. But patients are also encouraged to utilize additional plain moisturizer to help replenish their skin’s hydration and improve the lipid barrier.
