What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a rejuvenating skin treatment during which a custom peel solution is applied to the top layer of your facial skin. Our chemical peels are available in several custom formulas, from the gentlest to formulas that will create a more dramatic degree of skin enhancement. We offer several chemical peels including VI Peel, PCA Skin, RevePeel and Enlighten Chemical Peels. At Beauty IQ, Elizabeth Long brings her years of knowledge and expertise in advanced skincare to correctly identify the most effective chemical peel for your skin type.
What should I expect from a chemical peel?
The first step is a thorough cleansing of your skin to remove the debris left from make-up, oil, or environmental debris, so there is no barrier blocking the peel formula from entering your skin. Your eyes, nose, mouth, and hair will be protected from contact before your treatment. Then the chemical formulas will be carefully applied to your facial skin. You may feel a slight tingling or burning sensation, but this sensation is typically very mild and easy to experience. A neutralizing solution is then applied, and the peel formula removed.
What can a chemical peel do for my skin?
You may have concerns that a chemical peel will be challenging to experience. While you will need a few days of downtime for the upper layer of your skin to flake and peel off, the results are well worth the wait. The new skin that is revealed is firmer, softer, and more even in tone. Wrinkles and fine lines are less visible, and your complexion will be brighter. What formula is right for you? The first step is to analyze your skin so the best formula is applied. You are in the hands of true skincare professionals when you have a chemical peel at Beauty IQ.
What is the recovery time from a chemical peel?
The recovery time from a chemical peel depends on the depth of the treatment. For a light chemical peel, the recovery requires only a few days. You may have some redness for up to half an hour after and along with skin flaking and dryness for a few days following treatment. For a medium to a deep chemical peel, the recovery may require about a week, as the upper layer of skin is shed, and new, fresh, youthful skin revealed.
