What can chemical peels do for my skin?

Chemical peels can give your skin an all-around glow-up and can also treat many specific areas you might be concerned about, such as:

  • Acne
  • Aging skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation (age spots, freckles, and other discoloration)
  • Rough skin texture
  • Large pores
  • Areas of precancerous sun damage (actinic keratosis)

While the face is the most popular treatment area, you can also have peels on the neck, chest, back, arms and hands.

What are the types of chemical peels?

AK Beautiful You offers a selection of customizable chemical peels, including:

Anti-aging peel 

The anti-aging peel is a customized formula that targets age spots and other hyperpigmentation. It contains high-performance brightening ingredients, anti-inflammatory agents, and an exfoliating acid.

It speeds up cellular turnover and greatly diminishes hyperpigmentation. Anti-aging peels are performed twice a month, for a total of four to six peels.

Clinical acne peel

The clinical acne peel can be tailored for your case of acne. This peel includes ingredients that target the main causes of acne by controlling bacteria, clearing dirt, and dislodging debris from your pores.

The clinical acne peel can gently hydrate, smooth skin, and control further breakouts. Peel frequency depends on your acne and treatment goals.

Micropeel and Micropeel Plus 

Micropeel and Micropeel Plus come from SkinCeuticals®, a leading clinical skincare company. They offer chemical peel results, without the peeling. Micropeel and Micropeel Plus are especially effective for mature blemish-prone skin.

Micropeels include dermaplaning (skin exfoliation), skin resurfacing (the chemical peel, tailored to your skin), and cryogenic (cold) therapy. The Micropeel Plus is a one-step peel. Most patients have a total of four to six treatments, two to four weeks apart.

Chemical peel with microdermabrasion

A chemical peel with microdermabrasion can safely retexture most types of skin. It’s a multi-level treatment that involves first removing the outermost skin layers through microdermabrasion.

This approach allows for better acid penetration and more efficient skin peeling. This treatment can effectively address many issues, including acne scars.

How much skin peeling will a chemical peel cause?

The amount of skin peeling you experience depends on the chemical or chemical blend, the condition of your skin, and the number of peels you’ve had in the past. It can range from mild flaking to significant peeling.
