Chemical Peels Q & A

How do chemical peels work?

During a chemical peel, Samantha at The Spa MD applies a specially formulated solution to the surface of your skin. This causes your skin to exfoliate, a process during which the top layer sloughs off and peels away.

This reveals the newer skin cells under the surface. Because these skin cells haven’t been exposed to the sun, pollutants, or other sources of damage, uncovering them gives your skin a younger, more even appearance. 

Specifically, you can use chemical peels to address:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scars, including acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone or texture

A peel can do a lot for your skin, but it’s important to know that many peels come with downtime, a span of about a week during which your skin actively peels. 

What chemical peels are available?

The Spa MD offers a variety of chemical peels, including:

Glycolic peels

Using a peel with a concentration of 33% or 70% glycolic acid, this medium-depth peel helps reduce the signs of aging.

Obagi® Blue Peel RADIANCE®

This salicylic acid-based peel exfoliates your skin without any downtime. To get the best results, Samantha usually recommends 4-6 Blue Peels.

VI Peel

The VI Peel line is specially formulated to work well for sensitive and acne-prone skin. It’s extremely effective at addressing hyperpigmentation. 

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel

The TCA of this solution creates a deeper peel that clears away dead skin cells, addressing the signs of aging, uneven pigmentation, and scarring. 

Which chemical peel is right for me?

It depends on your skin goals and your upcoming schedule. If you want to gradually improve your skin without having to worry about any downtime, the Obagi Blue Peel is a great option for you. If you’re looking for a dramatic transformation, a deeper peel like a TCA peel may be a better fit.
