It works by removing the superficial layers of your skin to reveal new, healthy skin.

What is a Chemical Peel?

There are a variety of chemical peels out there designed to target various skin types and skin concerns. Generally speaking however, a chemical peel begins when an expert provider thoroughly cleanses your skin. They may use a degreaser to get rid of any oils from your face.

Next, they’ll apply the chemical solution and let it get absorbed by your skin for at least a few minutes. You may notice a mild stinging sensation that will eventually subside on its own. Depending on the peel you receive, you may peel for a few days or longer.

Types of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can be light, medium or deep. While light and deep peels treat uneven skin tone, acne scars, and other surface issues, deep peels are intended for deep scars, severe wrinkles, and more serious skin concerns. 

If you opt for a deep peel, you can expect a longer downtime than you’d get with a light or medium peel. At The Refinery, we only offer medical-grade peels that are not only 100% safe but also very effective. 

Frequency of a Chemical Peel

The type of peel you receive will dictate how many treatments you’ll need to achieve optimal results. If you choose a light chemical peel, the general rule of thumb is to get one every four to five weeks. 

For a medium chemical peel, a treatment every three to nine months is suggested. Deep chemical peels are usually only performed once. After we design a unique chemical peel treatment plan for your unique aesthetic goals, we’ll let you know how frequently you should receive peels. 

Good Candidates for Chemical Peels

Since chemical peels are so versatile, our expert providers recommend them to a variety of patients. They can benefit you if you’d like to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, fade acne scars and hyperpigmentation, smooth out rough skin, or simply rejuvenate your complexion.
