Chemical Peels Q&A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that uses varying strengths of acid to remove the top layer of your skin, also known as the epidermis. Stronger chemical peels can reach down to deeper layers, too. Once the dry and flaky outer skin is gone, you can see fresh new skin that looks dewy and radiant.

Lisa chooses the strength of your chemical peel based on your skin’s main issues as well as your lifestyle. For instance, if you’re too busy to deal with a blistering, reddened face and downtime that come with a strong chemical peel, she may recommend a “lunchtime peel.”

The lighter lunchtime peels have no real side effects, but you need more than one treatment to get the same results that you would with a stronger peel.

What kinds of improvements do chemical peels make?

Lisa uses chemical peels to rectify many of the skin issues that come with aging and sun exposure. Chemical peels can improve or resolve:

  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Melasma
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Certain types of acne
  • Dull or dry skin

Can I only use a chemical peel on my face?

Lisa can perform a chemical peel on almost any area of your body. Many women like to use peels on their necks and decolletage. You can use chemical peels to reduce liver spots and other signs of aging on your hands, too.

Does a chemical peel hurt?

A lunchtime peel doesn’t hurt and doesn’t have noticeable side effects. If you and Lisa feel you’d benefit most from a deep peel, your face may have burning and stinging sensations that Lisa controls with cool compresses.

After a deep peel, your skin looks like you had a sunburn. Lisa always tells you what to expect — including whether or not you need to wear bandages — depending on the kind of peel you choose.

How many peels do I need?

If you get a deep chemical peel, you only need one treatment. For medium peels, Lisa suggests touch-ups every 6-12 months. Lighter lunchtime peels usually need to be repeated every one to four weeks until you get the improvement you like, and then touched-up as needed.
