Chemical Peels Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that uses specialized chemicals to remove the surface layer of damaged skin. Chemical peels are used to improve the texture and tone of your skin without the need for injections or surgery.

Chemical peels are customizable and include light, medium, and deep peel levels that can be used based on the condition of your skin.

Who can benefit from a chemical peel?

Since chemical peels can be customized and offer different levels of treatment, peels can be used for:

  • Acne or acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Irregular skin pigmentation
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Sun damage


If you have more complex skin concerns – like deep wrinkles or large scars – Mena may recommend other treatment options, like dermal fillers.

What happens during a chemical peel?

After your complimentary consultation with Mena, she outlines your chemical peel options based on the condition of your skin and your desired outcome. Once you choose the best type of peel for your needs, Mena or a member of the Boost Your Beauty Medispa team prepares your skin and the peel solution.

First, your skin is cleaned and the aesthetician begins sweeping layers of the liquid peel onto your skin using cotton balls or gauze. When all the layers of your peel are applied, the team ensures the peel remains on your skin for the correct length of time.

After your peel is complete, Mena rinses the peel from your skin and provides you with aftercare instructions. Your skin will be extra sensitive to sunlight temporarily, so wearing sunscreen and a hat may be necessary.

What results can I expect after a chemical peel?

After your chemical peel, you’ll notice redness and flaking skin for the first few days. About five to seven days later, you’ll have more flaking and peeling until the surface layer of damaged skin is sloughed off. Within a week, you’ll see healthy, new skin revealed.

Depending on the type of peel you received, you may notice either subtle or more dramatic changes. Overall your skin will be more even in tone and texture with a brighter glow.
