Chemical Peels Q&A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are treatments for the skin on your face or body. Most people who get them are interested in targeting the skin on their faces, but you can also get a chemical peel on various parts of your body such as your chest area, neck, or hands. 

These treatments exfoliate your skin using strong chemical compounds to remove the surface layer of dead skin. As a result, you can enjoy more youthful-looking skin because of a higher rate of cell turnover. The new cells replace the old faster than before once your skin heals from a chemical peel. 

During your consultation at Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles, you discuss your goals with the team, who can then recommend a suitable chemical peel for your skin. 

Why should I consider getting a chemical peel?

Chemical peels can offer stunning results for nearly any type of skin. The team at Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles can discuss your peel options to make sure you get one appropriate for your skin type and goals. 

A chemical peel from Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles can:

  • Reduce fine lines
  • Treat certain types of acne
  • Reduce sun damage and wrinkles
  • Minimize spots, freckles, and melasma
  • Minimize scars
  • Improve your skin’s overall texture 

Your skin takes a little time to peel and heal before you can fully appreciate the results of a chemical peel. 

How does my skin heal from a chemical peel?

The team at Destinations Medical Spa Los Angeles informs you about the healing process for the type of peel you get. Some chemical peels involve weeks of healing, while others allow your skin to heal in just a few days. 

In any case, you must be gentle with your skin after a chemical peel. To optimize healing and maintain your results, you should:

  • Minimize sun exposure
  • Use sunscreen
  • Use cool water to wash your face
  • Use moisturizer
  • Avoid workouts, saunas, and situations that make you sweat
  • Attend follow-up visits as recommended

Deep chemical peels are usually for just once in a lifetime, but you can get light or medium peels semi-regularly to enjoy their results repeatedly.
