Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are a type of facial that uses a chemical solution to slough off older skin cell layers from your skin. The result is new skin cell growth and a younger-looking appearance. Chemical peels aren’t painful, but they can produce dramatic anti-aging results with little to no downtime. Chemical peels vary in strength as they are light, medium, or deep.

What are the benefits of chemical peels?

Some of the many advantages you can discover with chemical peels at FIRM Med Spa include:

  • Smoother skin
  • Younger-looking skin
  • Skin revitalization
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Fewer sun spots
  • Vibrant, brighter skin
  • Tighter skin
  • No pain
  • No surgery
  • No downtime

Chemical peels can give you the healthier-looking skin you long to have without cutting or needles.

Are chemical peels right for me?

Barbara lets you know if you’re a candidate for chemical peels at FIRM Med Spa after discussing your medical history, desired outcome, and beauty goals. She examines your skin in areas of concern and lets you know what to expect during the procedure. It’s important to protect your skin from the sun before and after chemical peels.

What happens during chemical peels?

Barbara numbs your skin at the site of treatment to ensure you avoid discomfort during chemical peels. She cleans your skin before applying a chemical solution to it. After a specific period of time, she removes or neutralizes the chemicals before applying ointment to your skin and sending you home or back to work.

What should I expect after the procedure?

Make sure to follow your post-care instruction after receiving a chemical peel. Keep your skin clean, and apply ointment to it as needed. Always protect your skin from the sun. After a peel, you can expect redness, swelling, tenderness, or scabbing in some cases. Take over-the-counter pain relievers if necessary, and avoid wearing makeup until Barbara says it’s okay.

Over time as your skin heals and cells regenerate, you can expect smoother, revitalized, younger-looking skin. Periodic repeat treatments offer the long-term results you deserve.
