Chemical Peel Q&A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a nonsurgical treatment that rejuvenates the skin. Chemical peels work by removing the skin’s surface, which endures damage from the environment, cosmetics, and pollution that can age the outer barrier. Once the surface cells slough off, they reveal the newer tissue underneath.

Chemical peels can transform the appearance and quality of your skin without surgery, heat, or needles. Dr. Aguirre offers many customizable solutions to address your unique needs and concerns. For example, the VI Peel® is specially formulated for personalization. Dr. Aguirre often recommends this treatment if you have multiple skin concerns.

Are there different types of chemical peels?

Dr. Aguirre offers three types of chemical peels at Genesis Health and Beauty Bar:


Sometimes called a lunchtime peel, this light solution uses a mild acid to exfoliate the skin’s surface layer gently. Light peels target superficial skin concerns and require only a few days of social downtime.


Medium peels penetrate the surface and middle layers of the skin to address deeper concerns. Along with treating cosmetic imperfections, a medium peel is strong enough to remove precancerous lesions, such as actinic keratoses.


Deep peels penetrate even deeper than medium treatments. They minimize the appearance of advanced skin concerns, including scars. Since deep peels target the deepest layers of skin and require up to two weeks of downtime, you can only try them once.

Which skin concerns can a chemical peel address?

Chemical peels can address a wide range of skin concerns, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Brown spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Melasma
  • Skin laxity

A chemical peel promotes firmer, clearer, tighter skin that looks and feels rejuvenated.

What does recovery after a chemical peel involve?

Chemical peels typically don’t involve lengthy downtime. Most people recover within 7-14 days. Your skin may appear red, swollen, and tender within a few days of your treatment. Over the next few days, your skin may flake and crack. Keeping your skin moisturized can help minimize the side effects of your peel.

Chemical peels are customizable treatments that can rejuvenate your skin without extensive downtime. To book a chemical peel at Genesis Health and Beauty Bar, call the office or schedule an appointment online today.
