How Do Chemical Peels Work?

VI Peel (Medium Depth Peel): The VI Peel is known as an innovative, advanced medical-grade chemical peel targeting fine lines and wrinkles, age and sun spots, acne and acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, melasma, enlarged pores, and overall skin texture and appearance.

SkinCeuticals (Superficial Peels): SkinCeuticals peels are great for skin resurfacing and correction. Patients looking to repair and restore skin, should consider one of the SkinCeuticals peels—each of which includes a deep cleanse, peel application and soothing mask.

Preparing for Chemical Peels

It’s important to remember that an integral part of maintaining healthy skin is using high quality, corrective skin care products and always using sunscreen. Having routine therapeutic/corrective skin treatments will also go a long way in eliminating unwanted pigmentation as well as helping to stave off the aging process.

What to Expect During Chemical Peels

Depending on which peel is chosen for your skin, procedures may vary. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed, then prepped with a medical degreaser to remove any traces of oil. Your clinician will then start applying the peel solution to your skin. Most peels remain on the skin between 3-10 mins, but some are designed to be self-neutralizing and stay on for 4 hours.

Most patients describe feeling a warm, prickly sensation, or mild stinging/itching when the peel is first applied to their skin. This is temporary and subsides after a couple of minutes. After the peel is neutralized and removed, we will apply moisturizer and SPF, when appropriate.

Chemical Peels Recovery Time

The first two days following the peel your skin will feel tight and pigmented areas might appear slightly darker. On approximately day three, patients will begin to peel. The first signs of peeling usually begin around the mouth and chin areas. By day six or day seven patients will be done peeling. Keeping the skin moisturized can help make the peeling tolerable. Whatever you do, do not pick or peel the sloughing skin, let it come off on its own.

Chemical Peels Consultations

We believe consultations are very important when considering any skin treatment. Our consultations give us the opportunity to get to know you and understand exactly what you are looking to achieve with your skin. At your consultation you will meet with one medical aesthetician who will put together a treatment plan along with product recommendations for you to consider.

What will a chemical peel do for the skin?
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing/exfoliating treatment in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to slough away the top layers of skin. There are a variety of different chemical peels available and they can address skin conditions like: acne, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation/sun damage, tone, texture and overall skin health. Once the dead skin is removed it reveals smoother, softer, younger looking skin.
How do I know which peel is right for my skin?
Whether you’re an existing patient, or new to the practice, we always have you meet with one of our Medical Aestheticians for a complimentary consultation before your peel appointment to determine which one is best suited for your skin and goals. Depending on your skin, we may recommend combining chemical peels along with other treatments for optimal results.
What will I look like right after a chemical peel and during the next few days?
There are a variety of different peels available. We offer superficial and medium depth peels. Immediately following a superficial peel you skin may appear a little pink, which subsides pretty quickly. Superficial peels do not cause the skin to slough off, so you should not experience any shedding. These peels can be done as frequently as every 2 weeks. There is no down time with these peels.
How many peels are required to show an improved look?
A single peel will achieve some repair and add a healthy glow to the skin. Skin conditions like acne scars, pore enlargement and hyperpigmentation might require multiple applications to produce more dramatic results.
What are the risks/side effects of chemical peels?

Make sure you don’t pick or peel at the skin after a chemical peel this can cause discoloration and scarring. Allow the skin to shed on its own. You will also need to use a good quality at-home skincare regimen to optimize and maintain your results.

Skin Resurfacing

Skin resurfacing does just that; resurfaces. It helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by resurfacing the patient’s skin. Whether patients are struggling to get acne under control or they’re left with scars from past acne, at WIFH we have many options to treat acne and its after effects.
