What Chemicals are Used in a Chemical Peel?

You may have heard of a chemical peel – but the name alone may make you feel hesitant about seeking it out. Chemicals are bad, you may have heard numerous times. Why would I want to put them on my skin?

As it turns out, not all chemicals are created equal. Some natural chemicals are so beneficial for the skin that they can actually improve your complexion’s tone, texture, and radiance over the long-term. So what chemicals are used in a chemical peel? And why should you get one?

What’s in a Chemical Peel?

The answer can be different depending on the type of chemical peel you opt for. That’s right – not all chemical peels are the same, as there are some peels developed with gentle chemicals for less recovery time.

At The Refinery, we only use chemical peels that contain skin-renewing ingredients –  including TCA, lactic, glycolic, kojic acid, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, vitamin C, and the antioxidant glutathione — to bring out your most evenly-toned and radiant skin.

These ingredients are derived from natural sources, but don’t let that fool you – the results can be incredibly life-changing, especially for clients who may feel self-conscious or embarrassed by their skin.

Our team of expert Licensed Medical Estheticians can help you identify the right chemical peel solution based on your particular skin care needs. Together, we’ll help you unlock the secret to beautiful, radiant, and younger-looking skin.

 Why Should I Get a Chemical Peel?

One of the main reasons why we encourage interested patients to get a chemical peel is because it can often be the fastest and most effective solution for common complexion issues. For example, most chemical peels can treat:

  • Fine lines and Wrinkles 
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age spots
  • Brown spots and freckles
  • Acne and trauma scarring
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Dull skin
