What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels offer a rejuvenating experience for your skin. They are specially formulated solutions to exfoliate the skin’s outer layers, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production, and a youthful, smoother appearance. The choice of chemical solution is tailored by our team to suit your specific needs. Chemical peels offer a range of options, from gentle peels that target surface-level imperfections to deeper peels for more significant skin concerns.

By eliminating damaged skin layers, chemical peels promote the regeneration of fresh, healthy skin, leading to a more even complexion, reduced signs of aging, and improved skin texture. Our medical spa uses AlumierMD chemical peels that are suitable for a wide range of skin concerns, regardless of whether you have oily, dry, or sensitive skin.

How Chemical Peels Work

Chemical peels enhance the texture and appearance of the skin through the controlled application of acidic chemical solutions. They are comprised of acids such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), or trichloroacetic acid (TCA), which are strategically applied to the skin to induce controlled exfoliation. Our peels are extracted from natural sources like sugar cane (glycolic acid), milk (lactic acid), and almonds (mandelic acid), these acids are instrumental in the peeling process.

The primary mechanism behind chemical peels lies in their ability to remove the outermost layer of damaged or dead skin cells, prompting cellular turnover and regeneration of new, healthier skin. The depth of the peel, categorized as superficial, medium, or deep, determines the extent of skin penetration and effects on skin concerns.

As the chemical solution is applied, it initiates a controlled wound-healing process, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin renewal. The peeling process that follows helps shed the damaged outer layers, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath.

Additionally, the controlled injury induced by the peeling process encourages the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, contributing to improved skin elasticity and firmness. Ultimately, the comprehensive impact of chemical peels on skin health and appearance stems from their ability to promote cellular turnover, stimulate collagen synthesis, and address specific concerns based on the depth of the peel applied.

The Types of Chemical Peels

Superficial Peels

Also known as light peels, these use gentle alpha-hydroxy acids like glycolic or lactic acid to exfoliate the outermost skin layer. They are ideal for minor skin concerns, offering improvements in skin texture and complexion without significant downtime.

Medium Peels

These penetrate deeper into the skin and often feature trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or a combination of TCA and AHAs. Medium peels are effective for addressing moderate concerns such as acne scars, deeper wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, but they require a longer recovery period.

Deep Peels

The most intensive type of chemical peel, deep peels use phenol to penetrate deeply into the skin and address severe skin concerns like deep wrinkles and extensive sun damage. Due to their intensity, deep peels necessitate an extended recovery period.

Preparing for a Chemical Peel in Orlando

  1. Skincare Consultation: Schedule a consultation with our experienced medical providers for chemical peels in Orlando. They will evaluate your skin, discuss your goals, and recommend the most suitable chemical peel.
  2. Follow Pre-Peel Instructions: Adhere to specific pre-peel instructions provided by our team, which may involve discontinuing certain skincare products and making necessary preparations to optimize your skin’s health.
  3. Protect Your Skin: Shield your skin from excessive sun exposure in the weeks leading up to your chemical peel. Use sunscreen, protective clothing, and avoid tanning beds.
  4. Avoid Certain Medications and Treatments: Inform your skincare professional about any medications, over-the-counter products, or previous cosmetic procedures you have used, as some may increase the risk of complications during a chemical peel.
  5. Maintain Hydration and a Healthy Lifestyle: Ensure you stay hydrated, maintain a balanced diet, and get enough rest in the days leading up to your chemical peel to support the healing process and enhance treatment results.

Understanding the Chemical Peel Process

A typical chemical peel procedure involves the following steps:

  1. Cleansing: Your skincare professional cleanses your face to remove dirt, oil, and makeup.
  2. Prepping: Depending on the peel type, a prepping solution may be applied to eliminate excess oil and prepare your skin.
  3. Application: The chemical peel solution is carefully applied to your skin using a brush or sponge, with the duration determined by your skincare professional.
  4. Neutralization: After a designated time, the chemical peel solution is neutralized, usually with water or a neutralizing solution to halt the exfoliation process.
  5. Soothing and Moisturizing: Following neutralization, a soothing mask or moisturizer may be applied to calm and hydrate your skin along with sunscreen.

The procedure typically takes 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the peel type and your skin’s specific needs. It’s normal to experience a slight tingling or stinging sensation, which typically subsides shortly after the peel is removed. Your skincare professional will provide comprehensive post-treatment care instructions.

Aftercare for Your Orlando Chemical Peel

Proper aftercare is essential for a smooth recovery and optimal results:

  1. Limit Sun Exposure: Protect your skin from sunlight by limiting sun exposure and using broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, along with protective clothing.
  2. Avoid Picking or Scratching: Refrain from picking or scratching any peeling or flaking skin to prevent scarring or infection.
  3. Moisturize: Keep your skin hydrated with a gentle, non-irritating moisturizer as instructed by your skincare professional to soothe dryness and discomfort.
  4. Avoid Harsh Skincare Products: In the days after a chemical peel, steer clear of harsh products like exfoliants or retinol, opting for gentle, non-abrasive cleansers and moisturizers recommended by your skincare professional.
  5. Be Patient: Results may take several weeks to become apparent. Allow your skin time to heal and regenerate, and follow post-treatment instructions provided by your skincare professional.

Orlando Chemical Peel Questions Answered

The duration of a chemical peel procedure can vary depending on the type and strength of the peel, as well as individual factors. Generally, the procedure itself takes around 30 minutes.

Usually 2 to 4, but the number of chemical peel treatments needed to see results can vary depending on your specific skin concerns and the type of peel being performed. Some individuals may see improvements after just one treatment, while others may require a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart for optimal results. Sometimes we suggest other services like IPL, neurotoxins, or microneedling while providing direct advice on the best treatment options.

Most individuals experience a tingling or stinging sensation during a chemical peel, which is generally well-tolerated. However, the level of discomfort can vary depending on the individual’s pain tolerance and the type of peel being performed. Deep peels will be the strongest.

In the days immediately following a chemical peel, it’s best to avoid wearing makeup to allow your skin to heal properly. We do provide specific post care instructions, as well as some take home products.

While chemical peels are commonly performed on the face, they can also be performed on other parts of the body, such as the neck, chest, hands, and back. The suitability of a chemical peel for a specific body area will depend on various factors, including skin type and concerns. We prefer to use laser or microneedling on the body, and we find they get better and more predictable results.

No, a chemical peel typically does not make your skin peel off completely. The name can be a bit misleading. While some chemical peels can result in visible skin peeling or flaking, the extent of peeling depends on the type and depth of the peel. Superficial peels usually cause minimal peeling, if any, and may result in subtle exfoliation.

Medium and deep peels may lead to more noticeable peeling or flaking as they penetrate deeper layers of the skin. However, it’s important to note that the peeling is a natural part of the skin’s rejuvenation process and is usually manageable with proper post-treatment care.

If you usually shave the area to be treated, it’s advisable to avoid razor shaving for a day or two before the peel, as freshly shaved skin may be more sensitive. An area with significant facial hair cannot be treated. It’s also advisable to not shave a treated area soon after a chemical peel treatment.
