Chemical Peels

Uncover the healthy skin below the damage for renewed radiance

Healthy skin is constantly renewing itself; forming new skin cells and shedding old ones. As we age, this process slows down and collagen becomes more tightly knit together—hindering our ability to regenerate new skin. The result is a dehydrated complexion, often permeated by lines, creases, pigmentation and blemishes.

At EverYoung, our customized Chemical Peels speed up and repair cell regeneration. Dull, dehydrated, devitalized skin is replaced with healthy, fresh skin. Depending on the depth of the peel, deeper damage is addressed, and obvious signs of aging such as pigmentation, freckles, blotches, sunspots, and deep wrinkles are greatly improved. Skin tone and texture also receive a boost, diminishing both acne and flaking skin, for a smoother overall texture.

Our Chemical Peel treatment removes surface imperfections to reveal the healthy, clear skin below the damage—improving overall texture, tone, clarity and radiance.

FAQ

Peels are primarily composed of high quality, naturally derived acids. These substances, which include Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), are sourced from plants and fruits such as apples, grapes, citrus, and sugar cane. Once the solution has been applied to the skin for a set period of time, the acidity is balanced out by adding a neutralizing supplement.

Chemical peels take effect by causing the skin to blister in a well-controlled fashion. Following the procedure, patients experience light erythema (skin reddening), with skin gradually peeling over the subsequent days. Once this peeling process has finished, improvements will be immediately apparent. In the 4-6 weeks that follow the procedure, this positive trend will only continue until the patient is left with a fresh, radiant appearance.

Chemical Peels produce positive and immediate effects for those with fair skin. Patients with dark, olive, or Asian skin can still benefit from a chemical peel, but the depth and strength must be adjusted to avoid the risk of hyperpigmentation. At EverYoung, our dermal physicians will conduct a thorough skin analysis to ensure both safety and results for our patients.

Keeping skin protected from the sun is a critical component in maintaining your results. Apply a full spectrum (UVA and UVB) sunscreen daily to prevent new damage from occurring.

The frequency of chemical peels depends on the type and strength of the peel, but a safe interval is typically every 4 to 6 weeks for superficial peels and several months for deeper peels to allow proper skin healing.
Exposure to the sun after a chemical peel can increase the risk of pigmentation changes, sunburn, and complications, so it’s crucial to use sun protection and avoid direct sunlight during the healing period.
No, picking or peeling the skin after a chemical peel is strongly discouraged as it can lead to scarring, infection, and hinder the proper healing process.
The duration of results from a chemical peel varies depending on the type and depth of the peel, with superficial peels lasting a few weeks to months and deeper peels providing longer-lasting effects, potentially several years.
