chemical peel may be just the solution you need right now to rejuvenate your skin and leave you with a refreshed and dewy complexion. If you’re ready, you’ve come to the right place. 

Here in Daphne, Alabama, our team at Genesis Health and Beauty Bar, led by Brittany Aguirre, DO, has the expertise and experience to give your skin the boost you’re looking for.

Why now is a good time for a chemical peel

Chemical peels are designed to exfoliate and remove the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing younger, healthier, and brighter skin. During the winter months, your skin tends to produce less oil, which can lead to the buildup of dead skin cells on your skin's surface, leading to a dull complexion, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.

A chemical peel can course-correct what the winter months left behind.

Understanding a chemical peel

A chemical peel is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment we offer to improve the appearance of your skin. It involves the use of an acid solution that removes the outermost layer of skin, revealing fresher, brighter, and younger-looking skin underneath.

Different types of chemical peels have varying strengths and ingredients. Three common types include:

Superficial peel

This is the gentlest type of chemical peel and is great for brightening up dull skin. It’s typically made with alpha-hydroxy acids (like glycolic acid) and only penetrates the top layer of skin.

Medium peel

A medium peel uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and penetrates deeper into the skin to treat fine lines, acne scars, and pigmentation issues.

Deep peel

A deep peel uses phenol acid and is the strongest type of chemical peel. It treats deep wrinkles and severe pigmentation issues.

During your consultation, we evaluate your skin and help determine the right solution for you.

Benefits of a chemical peel

A chemical peel has many benefits for your skin. It can:

  • Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Refresh and brightening complexion
  • Treat acne and acne scars
  • Even out skin tone

The treatment can also reduce the appearance of sun damage and age spots.

What to expect before and after a chemical peel

If you're interested in getting a chemical peel, there are a few things you should know before you go. 

Prepare your skin

Your skin needs to be prepped. Avoid using any harsh skin care products like retinoids, exfoliants, or waxing for at least a week before your appointment.

Expect some side-effects

Depending on the strength of the peel, you may experience some redness, swelling, and flakiness for a few days following the treatment.

Pay attention to instructions

Follow post-treatment instructions to ensure proper healing.

Plan to repeat treatments

We recommend you have a series of chemical peels every few weeks to get the best results.
