What Is a Chemical Peel?

There is! It’s called a chemical peel, and it is a treatment performed by the skincare experts at Amara Medical Aesthetics!

Chemical peels

Chemical peels can be done on the hands, arms, and chest, but they are most often done on the face. The chemicals used in peels get down deep into the layers of the skin to prompt new skin to grow. Chemical peels can:

• Help reduce wrinkles and hyperpigmentation

• Get rid of acne and help to calm inflamed skin

• Remove age spots

• Help to heal skin that has sun damage

• Help reduce irritation from issues such as psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea

There are typically three types of peels, and the difference between them is how deep into the skin the chemicals get: light, medium, and deep. You can also choose from a ZO 3-Step Peel® and a VI Peel.

The ZO 3-Step Peel is safe for any skin type and color, and it reduces lines, wrinkles, and irregular skin pigmentation while boosting collagen production and skin elasticity. It even helps to keep the skin hydrated after the treatment, to protect skin from damage. The VI Peel is a deep exfoliation of the skin to keep it looking young and healthy. It is also safe for all skin tones and types, and it is a great complement to other treatments such as lasers and injectables.

Depending on the type of peel you get, you may have no recovery time needed at all, or you may need up to a week to recover, and you may have no pain or you might need a light anesthetic. You should stay out of the sunlight after a chemical peel, and make sure to follow any other post-treatment instructions you are given.

For younger looking, beautiful skin, you should consider a chemical peel! The skincare professionals at Amara Medical Aesthetics can help you decide which type of chemical peel is right for you.
