Over time, exposure to sun, stress, and environmental aggressors can cause signs of premature aging. Chemical peels are non-ablative skin resurfacing treatments for the face, hands and chest that are used to reverse these signs of aging, which include discoloration, wrinkles and scars. The chemical involved in the procedure stimulates cell turnover and strengthens your skin’s structure. Chemical Peels are effective in reducing acne by decreasing oil and enhancing surfacing exfoliations to decongest clogged pores. At PSAOM, we carry a selection of peels varying in intensity, which allows us to treat a wide range of skincare issues. From this selection, we are able to tailor a treatment plan specific to your concerns.

How Chemical Peels Are Performed

In a laying down position, our skin care expert will apply a small amount of petroleum jelly or moisturizer will be applied to sensitive areas, including the lips, corners of the mouth, crevices at the side of the nose, corners of the eyes and throat. Next, a prepping solution will be applied to the areas that will be treated. This prepping solution cleanses the skin prior to the chemical application. Next, the chemical is applied in one or more applications, or passes using a folded gauze. The number of passes will depend on your skin’s tolerance to the chemical and the strength of the peel being applied. The final step is the application of protective sunscreen.

Frequently Asked Questions

A treatment typically lasts between 25-40 minutes, depending on the strength of the peel and area(s) being treated.

Mild to strong burning, redness, warmth and itching may occur after each pass, depending on the strength of the peel. We use a fan to help cool the face if needed. These symptoms usually subside or become mild within 1-2 minutes.

Areas of treatment include the face, neck, chest and hands.

Immediately following the treatment, your skin may be tight and more red than usual. Depending on the strength of the peel, your skin may feel tacky and have a yellow to orange tinge, which is temporary and will fade in a few hours. Any peeling resulting from the treatment will generally start between 48-72 hours after the procedure, and can last 2-5 days. When the skin is peeling, moisturizer should be applied frequently to control the peeling.
