What Is a Chemical Peel?

You have probably heard of chemical peels and how they can be an effective treatment option for skin rejuvenation. At Spa One in Albany, NY we have provided numerous patients with amazing results with customized chemical peel treatments. If you are interested, here is what you should know when considering if a chemical peel is right for you.

What Is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a skin rejuvenation treatment that can be used to address common skin issues like wrinkles, irregular skin texture, sunspots, age spots, and more. The treatment involves applying a solution containing a chemical, such as salicylic acid or lactic acid, to the surface of the skin. The solution works to remove the damaged and dull outer layers of skin.

A chemical peel can enhance the appearance of your complexion by:

  • Removing dead skin cells
  • Improving skin tone
  • Clearing dirt and debris from clogged pores
  • Giving the skin a smoother texture
  • Firming the skin

Types of Chemical Peels

Different types of chemical peels have been designed for specific skin concerns. There are also varying levels or strengths of chemical peels. Superficial peels are often recommended on a regular basis to maintain a healthy, glowing complexion, while more intense, deeper peels are better suited to treat severe skin issues. 

At Spa One, we carry a variety of chemical peels. We carry PCA SKIN® peels because they are a safe and effective option for our patients. Some of the PCA SKIN® peels we offer include:

  • Ultra Peel® 1 – A hydrating and exfoliating chemical peel that is great for dehydrated and mature skin. Can also restore the youthful glow of your skin.
  • Ultra Peel® 2 – A special type of peel that is used to boost the effectiveness of other chemical peels. It provides increased hydration while promoting more peeling.
  • Sensi Peel® – The ideal chemical peel for people with sensitive skin. This revitalizing peel can brighten your skin and improve texture.
  • PCA Peel® – A powerful peel that is perfect for attaining brighter skin. The perfect peel for treating skin discoloration.

Recovering from a Chemical Peel

It can take some time for your skin to fully recover from your chemical peel. The exact length of your recovery will depend on the strength of the chemical peel used. There may be some mild side effects from your treatment, but these issues will subside over the next few days.

The PCA SKIN® peels we offer have been formulated to be easier on the skin to help minimize discomfort and reduce downtime while still providing noticeable results. Our team will go over the details of what to expect during your recovery before your chemical peel.
