Is a Chemical Peel Right for Me?


If you’ve heard about how a professional chemical peel can improve your skin tone and reveal a more youthful glow, but are not sure if it’s the right choice for you, perhaps it’s best to understand how a chemical peel works first.  A chemical peel begins when a licensed aesthetician applies a mild, medium or strong exfoliant solution depending on your skin damage and the effect your hoping to achieve. The solution is applied to the face, neck and sometimes to the hands to improve the appearance and the condition of the skin. This solution eventually peels off to reveal smoother, less wrinkly and fresher skin underneath. Chemical peels also encourage cell turnover to reduce the signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles and have also been used to improve different skin conditions such as acne, uneven skin tone and brown spots.

While less intensive glycolic peels can be done at home, and are more cost effective in some cases, most of the time they yield less than encouraging results. In fact, you may find yourself staring at your face in the mirror wondering if you did one at all! That’s why our team at Beaute Therapies Medical Spa in West Palm Beach recommends that for maximum efficacy and to bring out radiant dewy fresh skin, you come see our team of aestheticians who use only the latest most efficient chemical peel products to help improve your skin’s appearance and tone. 

What Strength Chemical Peel is Right for Me?

Just like some chemical peels work well on different skin tones, there are three different levels of chemical peels that tackle a variety of skin problems such as: 

-A light-depth peel is less aggressive and helpful in the treatment of acne, dry spots and some wrinkles by removing the outer layer of skin. This is a refreshing peel that will make your skin appear brighter and heather. There is no down time, very little pain or irritation although patients may experience a bit of redness that usually subsides in a few hours. 

-A medium-depth peel is best for more severe acne. This more intensive peel removes the mid and outer layer of skin. More recovery time may be necessary. 

-Deep peel- This peel is more intensive and may require recovery time up to a week. It is recommended that a doctor perform this treatment as it removes several layers of the skin. This peel is perfect for damage from the sun and deep wrinkles as well as some pre-cancerous growths.
