Chemical Peels

It might sound like a major procedure, but a chemical peel is one of the easiest ways to reverse the signs of aging. If you’re tired of spotting new wrinkles every time you look in the mirror, invest in yourself and change what you see.

Chemical peels exfoliate the skin and promote new skin cell growth; this improves rough skin, discoloration, and wrinkle lines. Contact RejuvaMed Skin & Body now to schedule your free consultation—a new you is just a phone call away.

How does a chemical peel work?

Even in a city as cloudy as Portland, sun damage and aging can take their toll on your skin. Chemical peels are exactly what they sound like. Our technicians apply a chemical solution to the neck, face, or hands that exfoliates the skin and promotes new skin cell growth.

As the older layers of skin fall off, new layers of skin grow to replace it. These new skin cells are tighter, consistent in color, and fill in areas that were previously wrinkled, scarred, loose, or discolored.

How do chemical peels work?

Types of chemical peel

These chemical peels typically use a mild acid like alpha-hydroxy to exfoliate the outermost layer of skin—this can refresh your hand, neck, chest, or face and correct rough skin and mild discoloration.

Recovery time – 1 to 7 days.

Stronger acid like trichloroacetic or glycolic can penetrate more deeply into the skin and reach the middle layers of your epidermis. These treatments reach damaged skin cells and can correct wrinkles, age spots, freckles, fine lines, and moderate discoloration.

Recovery time – 7 to 14 days.

Phenol or trichloroacetic acid treatments completely penetrate and remove damage down to the middle layer of skin cells. This treatment can correct scarring, freckles, age spots, and moderate lines.

Recovery time – 14 to 21 days.

Do chemical peels hurt?

  • Mild peels can cause mild stinging, irritation, and redness, but the recovery time can be very short. The short recovery process has lead to mild peels being referred to as a “lunchtime peel.”
  • Moderate to deep peels typically sting more than mild peels. These peels may cause swelling, irritation, and redness. Symptoms of a chemical peel can be negated when the right topicals and creams are applied after a peel.

What are the side effects of a chemical peel?

  • Scarring may occur
  • Patients with HSV may have a reactivation of symptoms
  • Skin may temporarily or permanently change color. This is more common in women who are currently on birth control, who become pregnant, or have a previous history of facial discoloration.

Who should avoid a chemical peel?

  • Pregnant or nursing women.
  • Anyone who has taken Accutane within the previous six months.
  • Patients with dermatitis, rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis.
  • Current or previous users of Retin-A, prescription skin care products, Renova, or who have used skin lightening or bleaching agents and other acid based products including ascorbic acid in the previous 48 hours.
