Chemical Skin Peels

Chemical Skin Peels have been proven to reduce serious signs of aging—spots, red marks, uneven texture—and hailed as the miracle product by dermatologists across the globe. Here are your questions answered!

Are chemical peels good for acne scars?

Chemicals peels can be a permanent solution if medium to strong peels are performed. They cause the skin to exfoliate and produce fresh new skin cells. There are different peels of varying strengths based on the results that you want.

Usually a series of peels are needed, and gradual improvement is noted. Remember, mild or even weaker moderate peels are often not sufficient scarring and are better for skin texture, tone, or pigment changes. Those struggling with acne or oily skin should opt for a beta hydroxyl–based peel,” made primarily of salicylic acid, which benefits breakout-prone skin, provides calming benefits, and can reduce redness and inflammation in most patients.

Other options for treating scars include: microdermabrasion, microneedling and laser resurfacing. Consult Luxe Skin on what procedure would work best for your needs.

What is the recovery time for chemical peels?

Chemical peels vary extensively in strength and downtime required. Some deep peels are invasive procedures that require several days of downtime after treatment while the skin heals and regenerates. They are known for their stunning results. This isn’t the only type of chemical peel, however. Lighter peels are available, too. These peels slough off less skin, making them the ideal choice for those who want less downtime. Stunning results are still achievable, especially if these peels are performed in a series of treatments.

Chemical peels can be classified into four levels, depending on its depth of action, which in turn correlates with the nature and intensity of the lesions they treat. We can recommend a suitable peel for patients who want a chemical peel without any downtime.

How often do you require a chemical peel?

Mild chemical peels can be done once a month to exfoliate the skin and improve skin texture. If you have acne prone skin or hyper pigmentation you should commit to a package of 5-10 peels in order to get the acne in control or to improve the discoloration. Depending on the skin condition, chemical peels can be combined with microdermabrasion or IPL for even better results.

“I am really happy”

I used to go to a different clinic which was much cheaper but I was never satisfied with the results. I always felt that the treatment was rushed. I wanted to try someone else and went to Doctor Q. He really listened to me and advised me on treatments that met my needs. I had Botox to 3 areas and filler around the mouth and nose. He is always available by phone or email for advice. I am really happy with the results.
