Chemical Peels Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is an aesthetic treatment that uses a solution of chemicals to exfoliate the surface layer of skin. This reveals new, regenerated skin, giving you a younger and smoother appearance.

Chemical peels are suitable for common aesthetic problems, such as:

  • Fine lines
  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Other mild to moderate scarring
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Melasma (dark patches on the skin)

Chemical peels don’t work so well on sagging skin or more severe creases and lines, which may need dermal fillers or Botox® injections.

Are there different types of chemical peels?

There are many different formulas for chemical peels, which vary depending on the results you wish to achieve. At Sweet Spot Medispa, three medical-grade chemical peels are available:

Jessner's Facial Peel

The Jessner’s Facial Peel is a medium-strength chemical peel with the active ingredients salicylic, lactic, and resorcinol acids. It’s suitable for treating wrinkles, acne, fine lines, laugh lines, pigmentation, and sun damage.

Glycolic Facial Peels

The Glycolic Facial Peel is available as a 30%, 50%, or 70% solution of glycol for superior refining, anti-aging, and skin restoration. These peels stimulate collagen and glycosaminoglycan production in addition to smoothing out wrinkles, reducing areas of pigmentation, and improving acne.

TCA Facial Peel

The TCA Facial Peel is a medium to deep-strength peel containing trichloroacetic acid that exfoliates and renews the skin deep into the dermis. Benefits of this peel include improved skin clarity, tone, and texture, reduction of acne, unclogged pores, reduced wrinkles and fine lines, and reduction of scarring. Regular sessions promote the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers.

Does a chemical peel hurt?

It’s usual to feel a burning sensation when the chemical peel starts working, then some stinging. You can use cold compresses if you feel uncomfortable.

After the procedure, your skin is likely to look and feel hot, and there may be some swelling. As the skin starts to heal, the top layer becomes scaly, and deeper peels may cause blistering.

Chemical peels can produce dramatic results and revitalize your skin. Call Sweet Spot Medispa today to arrange your treatment session, or book an appointment online.
