Chemical Peel Treatments

At Vitality Medispa we use a variety of peels including lunchtime peels to achieve great cosmetic results.

Chemical peels can treat:
ARE THERE OTHER PROCEDURES, WHICH CAN BE USED SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH CHEMICAL PEELS? Yes, at our practice we often perform Botox Cosmetic™ treatments or filler treatments to reduce fine lines around the forehead, cheek, eye, and lip areas.

Chemical Peel Care

WHAT ARE THE PRE CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHEMICAL PEELING? Typically, we ask that you discontinue the use of retinoic acid products and glycolic acid products for 3 to 4 days before your chemical. In addition, we will prescribe an antiviral medication which is taken 1 day before your procedure for deep peels if you are vulnerable to cold sore breakouts.

HOW MUCH DISCOMFORT CAN I EXPECT?
There is minimal if any discomfort with this treatment.

HOW LONG WILL I STAY RED?
There can be some minor redness and peeling of the skin. This quickly disappears within a matter of days unless you receive a deep peel such as the Melanage peel.

WHAT ABOUT POST OP CARE?
We recommend emu oil and sunscreen post peel. It is important to stay out of intense sun for at least one week after your treatment. Concealing makeup, e.g. Jane Iredale™, can be used to minimize redness.

Chemical Peel Results

HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECTS OF THE TREATMENT LAST?
The benefits from chemical peeling can be seen for months. Repeat treatments are especially benefical and are offered as one of the benefits of our Skin Club.
