The most popular skincare treatment in the country: Chemical Peels

According to the latest plastic surgery statistics report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 1,384,327 chemical peels were performed in the United States in 2018. Chemical peels are the third most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the country. Only Botox and Dermal Filler treatments precede chemical peels in this list making chemical peels the most popular skincare procedure in the United States. 

What makes chemical peels so popular? Perhaps the fact that they are versatile and customizable procedures that can help address a broad range of skincare concerns like acne, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, dark spots, sun spots, and age spots.

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are acids used to exfoliate the top layer or layers of your skin encouraging skin to rejuvenate by chemical exfoliation. This exfoliation process penetrates deeper in the skin in order for the top layers of the skin to start peeling. This process improves, appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone, texture, and resiliency.

What is a chemical peel good for?

Chemical peels are best for those with skin concerns such as acne, hyperpigmentation, textural issues, discoloration, melasma, and premature signs of aging. 

How long does it take to recover from a chemical peel?

It depends on the chemical peel suggested. Mild chemical peels have no downtime, or no peeling. For deeper, corrective peels you should expect 4-7 days of peeling downtime.

Is a chemical peel painful?

Chemical peels can make your skin feel hot, itchy, and stingy during the procedure. However, these sensations only last for a few minutes. Of course, the discomfort varies by the type of chemical peel and the person’s pain tolerance. Click here to learn about the different chemical peels we offer at Aesthetica.

Are chemical peel results permanent?

No, they are not permanent. Unfortunately, we can’t stop the process of aging but we can slow down the process of aging and age gracefully with corrective and maintenance chemical peels. We recommend following an at home skincare regimen with medical grade skincare products to help maintain your results. 

How often should I get chemical peels?

Typically a series of 3-6 chemical peels scheduled 3-4 weeks apart is suggested for corrective conditions. Another 3-6 for maintenance treatments with other exfoliation treatments in between is recommended to maintain results.
