Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are skin treatments that strip away the top layer of your skin to expose a gorgeous regenerated layer. You can choose between invasive and noninvasive peels depending on how drastic you want your results to be.

During a chemical peel at Zen Skincare and Medspa, Holly applies a specialized chemical solution to your skin that clears your skin of impurities and lifts the top layer, so it eventually peels off by itself.

Chemical peels are conveniently quick and work with anyone’s busy lifestyle. Even if your only free time is a 30-60 minute lunch break, Holly finds a peel that works for your schedule and yields impressive results without the need for downtime in most cases.

How can chemical peels improve my skin?

Chemical peels can remove many common skin imperfections and can be customized to work toward your goals. A chemical peel can reduce the appearance of or fully eliminate:

  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Scars
  • Fine lines
  • Sagging skin
  • Roughness

After your chemical peel, your skin is smoother and your complexion is more even. 

What types of chemical peels can I get?

Zen Skincare and Medspa offers several types of chemical peels that focus on specific skin improvements. You can get:

Glycolic, salicylic, or lactic acid peel

These peels last for 30-45 minutes. Glycolic peels trigger your skin to produce collagen and reduce lines and wrinkles. Salicylic peels target acne and oily skin, and lactic acid peels moisturize and target sunspots.

Enzyme treatment

Slightly more gentle than traditional chemical peels, enzyme treatments last for only three minutes and stimulate the fibroblast cells in your skin to create collagen. 

Collagen is a protein that your body makes to keep your skin looking young and hydrated. These treatments tighten your skin to reduce the appearance of looseness and wrinkles. They’re perfect for women on the go because they’re quick and easy.

Jessner peels

Jessner peels penetrate the middle layers of your skin. They remove damage from below the surface, including large pores, acne, acne scars, and wrinkles. They can also lighten areas of skin discoloration. They are customizable and last anywhere from five to 45 minutes.

TCA peels

TCA peels require no downtime for recovery. They use salicylic acid and vitamin C as active ingredients to give your skin a refreshed glow and reduce the size of your pores. You’ll also see a reduction in hyperpigmentation.

Zen Skincare and Medspa also offers topical light infusion, which combines topical treatments with LED light therapy to infuse the nutrients into your skin and diminish the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation.

What should I expect after my chemical peel?

Even though many chemical peels require no downtime for healing, you should take extra care to protect your skin as it is sensitive for several days after your treatment. You must avoid smoking and stay out of the sun. 

Holly gives you further instructions for how to care for your refreshed skin after a chemical peel that you need to follow closely. 

You deserve a refreshed glow for your skin, especially if you work hard and are busy. To explore your chemical peel options, call Zen Skincare and Medspa or book your appointment online today.
