Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are professional skin care treatments that use specially formulated chemical solutions to remove the outermost layer of your skin. That reveals a layer of fresh, healthy skin, and delivers immediate improvements in texture and tone.

Chemical peels come in several different strengths. It’s important to choose the formulation that is right for you, and your practitioner at The Med Spa at Matthews Internal Medicine takes the time to examine your skin and help you choose the proper layer of chemical peel.

What’s a good chemical peel for acne?

The Perfect™ Derma Peel is a great treatment option for both current acne and acne scarring. One of the lighter peel options, this treatment will cause your skin to peel for only 2-3 days, as a glowing, fresh layer of skin cells emerge.

A series of 2-3 treatments spaced four weeks apart will yield the best results, and proper skin care can extend the results for a year or longer.

What’s a good mid-level peel?

The Vitalize Peel® from Allergan uses a combination of alpha-hydroxy, beta-hydroxy, resorcinol, and retinoic acids to remove the outermost layers of your skin. This treatment improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven tone, and rough texture. It’s a powerful treatment option for sun damage and acne scarring.  

You’ll notice results after just one peel, but a series of 3-6 treatments deliver the most impressive outcome.

What is the strongest chemical peel available at The Med Spa at Matthews Internal Medicine?

The Rejuvenize Peel™ from Allergan is a deep chemical peel available only from trained professionals. It chemically exfoliates multiple layers of your skin to address significant acne scarring, melasma, and wrinkles.

It’s important to cease use of any skin care products that increase skin sensitivity in the days prior to your peel, and you’ll need to take extreme precaution to avoid sun exposure as your skin moves through the peeling process.

Expect significant peeling, which can occur in small flakes or in large sheets. Redness will be most noticeable in the days after your treatment but can linger for several weeks.

How can I extend the results of my chemical peel?

The best way to extend your results is with a comprehensive skin care routine using medical grade products. The Med Spa at Matthews Internal Medicine recommends products from Obagi® Medical and PCA Skin®, and can guide you toward the options best suited for your specific skin care needs.
