What to Expect on Your First Visit

Our chemical peels are an ideal treatment for those suffering from acne and for the general rejuvenation of your skin. Many of our guests enjoy having this treatment done seasonally to slough off rough, dull surface cells for a glowing, refreshed look.

Post treatment, your skin may be red and flaky and peeling will occur for 3-7 days. After your chemical peel, the skin is sensitive to the sun, so make sure you wear broad-spectrum sunscreen.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still not sure? Read our FAQ’s below.

How many peels will I need?

Receiving a series of chemical exfoliation treatments will yield the best results. Our clinical estheticians will guide you through a skin care program that consists of treatments and skin care products that are suitable for your specific needs.

The superficial peels are usually done several times over the course of several months. The deeper peels usually only need to be performed once to achieve the desired effect.

How long do the results last?

With good sun protection, results can last months or years, depending on the depth of the peel. Generally, the deeper peels have a more long lasting effect.

Is a Chemical Peel safe?

Yes, it is. When performed correctly by a certified, experienced Medical Esthetician, such as our technicians at External Affairs, a chemical peel is both safe and effective. However, it is a clincal procedure. As such, there is a potential for associated risks.

As a professional skin-care clinic, we will not perform any procedures without first assessing: your complete medical history; your current health condition; and your potential for complications.

What are some benefits of a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is minimally invasive and causes little-to-no pain. Because the outer layer of skin is sloughed off, the body can regenerate a new layer, leaving the skin smoother, less wrinkled, and healthier in appearance.

Are the results of a Chemical Peel permanent?

While the results of a chemical peel are not permanent, they are long-lasting. And, depending upon your skin type and condition, and the type of chemical peel that you have, results will vary. Results are more noticeable after a series of treatments, and if other skin-care treatments- such as microdermabrasion - are used in conjunction with the chemical peel.

Is a Chemical Peel painful?

Typically, a chemical peel causes little-to-no pain. Your skin might feel hot and tight, as it would after having been sunburned. Once the peel has been neutralized, your skin will feel fresh and smooth, without discomfort.
