How Do Chemical Peels Work?

This cosmetic treatment works similarly to a facial but uses stronger acids and ingredients to achieve a deeper clean with more dramatic results. During treatment, a technique called “Skin resurfacing” is employed. This means the top layers of skin are removed, revealing healthy skin underneath. While different types of peels use different chemicals to achieve slightly different results, generally speaking, treatment can be used to treat a number of superficial skin concerns, even working as an acne treatment and a tool for wrinkle removal.

What Skin Concerns Can This Treatment Address?

Many people are surprised to learn that a non-invasive treatment like this can remedy so many skin concerns. During an initial consultation, you can talk to us about what exactly your aesthetic goals are, and we can decide if this treatment will be potent enough to treat it. Some of the most common concerns include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and blackheads
  • Acne scars
  • Brown marks
  • Freckles
  • Skin pigmentation
  • Age and liver spots
  • Burst blood vessels
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin coloring
  • Rough, scaly patches of skin
  • An overall dull complexion

What Should I Expect From Treatment?

An Initial Consultation

The first step is to come in for a chat with a member of the BeYouth Medspa + Wellness team. This will be your chance to talk us through your cosmetic goals, and our chance to inspect your skin and make sure the treatment will work for you. We’ll also look over your medical history, including any skin conditions you may have, to ensure you’re a healthy candidate. If everything looks good, we’ll suggest which kind of peel you should get to achieve optimal results.

On the Day

Part one of the peel will be the cleansing. This gets your skin completely clean, and when performed by a professional like the staff here at BeYouth Medspa + Wellness, affords a deeper clean than what can be achieved at home. Next will be the exfoliation, where the peeling agent is applied to break down the dead skin cells. Once we’re satisfied the peel has done its job, we will neutralize and then remove it. Finally, a cream or ointment will be applied to soothe your skin.

Is There Much Downtime Needed Afterward?

Not at all! Patients love that this treatment is as easy as any other kind of facial – it can be slotted into a day full of errand-running, or you can head back to work afterward. Any redness can be covered with makeup, and it will subside within a few hours. The most we will suggest is that you stay out of direct sunlight and avoid things like facial massages or harsh products for a few days after treatment, just to let your skin recover.

Can I Get This Treatment Regularly?

If you’re in love with your new look after treatment – and we expect you will be! – you’ll be thrilled to learn that you can get a peel again and again. It’s important to let your skin have a break in between, however, and the length of time we recommend between sessions will vary depending on how strong the peel you got was. Generally speaking, patients can come in every three months or so, as this will give the skin apt time to heal.

What Are Some of the Types of Peels Available?

Glycolic Peel:
  • a deep-penetrating peel that gets under the skin thanks to its very small molecular structure. This makes it an excellent method of exfoliation.
Beta Peel:
  • a peel designed specifically for acne and breakouts. It uses salicylic acid, which is a common acne-fighting ingredient.
Glyderm Peel:
  • a strong peel that uses powerful acids like phenol and trichloroacetic acid to provide striking, dramatic results.
Retinol Peel:
  • retinol, a form of vitamin A, is a potent anti-aging tool because it encourages skin cell renewal. When used in a peel, patients can expect to achieve younger-looking skin.

The kind of peel we recommend will always depend on the individual and their needs, so be prepared to come into your consultation with an open mind and a thoughtful chat about your goals.


As well as getting regular peels, you can take several other steps to keep your skin looking gorgeous between sessions – and these things can even help the results of treatment last longer! Eating a balanced diet can greatly improve the skin’s appearance, so be sure to eat plenty of foods that are high in antioxidants, like berries, and full of fiber, like nuts and leafy greens. Regular exercise keeps the blood pumping through your face, which is also great for keeping the skin bright.

In terms of your skincare routine, it’s important to always wash your face, especially if you’ve been wearing makeup. Using a good moisturizer, and even retinol, can stop lines and blemishes from developing. And before you leave the house, make sure you’re wearing sunscreen! Sun damage is one of the fastest ways you can speed up your skin’s aging process. Excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, stress, and air pollution also contribute to dull, damaged skin.


Tired-looking, dull skin can be a thing of the past thanks to chemical peels.
