What is a Facial Peel and how does the Procedure work?

A facial chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that uses a chemical solution to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and address skin issues like acne or sun damage.It involves applying a chemical solution to the face, which exfoliates the outer layer of skin, leading to smoother, rejuvenated skin. There are different types of chemical peels, classified by their depth:

1.*Superficial Peel (Light Peel):* This targets the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis) and uses mild acids like alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs). It is a quick procedure with minimal downtime.

2.*Medium Peel:* Penetrating deeper into the middle layer of the skin (dermis), a medium peel typically involves trichloroacetic acid (TCA). It addresses more pronounced wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, and sun damage. Recovery time is longer compared to a superficial peel.

3.*Deep Peel:* This involves the use of phenol, penetrating into the deeper layers of the skin. It is the most aggressive option, addressing severe wrinkles and significant sun damage. However, it requires a longer recovery period and may have more potential side effec

At The Derma Lounge, we prioritize the well-being of our clients and only offer superficial and medium peels. We do not provide deep peels due to their higher risk and longer recovery time. Our focus is on safe and effective treatments for a refreshed and revitalized appearance. The choice of peel depends on individual skin concerns and the desired level of improvement.

Who is a good candidate for a Facial Peel?

Anyone who would like an increased youthful glow, to minimize breakouts and blackheads, brighten complexion, to reduce hyperpigmentation, to soften the look of fine lines, or who would like a smoother skin texture.  These peels are ideal for those who want to heal more quickly and want less risk of scarring compared to other invasive treatments like laser skin resurfacing or microneedling.

How soon after the treatment will I see results and can I return to my regular activities?

There is very little downtime for some of our peels, which can be considered “lunchtime” treatments.  Our medium depth peels may involve more downtime, and you can expect to have peeling or flaking of the skin for 3-7 days.  For a “lunchtime” peel you can resume regular activities the day after your peel. For our medium depth peels, we recommend you wait 5-7 days before resuming all of your regular activities.
