What is a Chemical Peel and How Does it Work?

A chemical peel is a type of facial treatment that uses chemicals to exfoliate and peel off the top layer of skin. This service will result in a smoother and more even complexion. The chemicals can vary depending on the depth and the intensity of the peel you are wanting.

The facial works by applying the peel and beginning shedding dead skin cells to stimulate the growth of healthier skin. If you are interested in trying out chemical facial peels, schedule an appointment to discuss your needs and we will access if you are a candidate.

Are Chemical Peels Suitable For All Skin Types?

No. Unfortunately, people with sensitive skin, certain skin conditions — such as rosacea and eczema — or those currently using a certain medication may need to avoid chemical peel facials. When you consult with Lash Envy Studios estheticians, we provide a thorough assessment of your skin’s suitability for the treatment.

Is There Downtime Associated With Chemical Peels?

The downtime may vary depending on the depth and intensity of the peel. Superficial chemical face peels will result in mild redness and flaking, with little to no downtime required. But medium to deep peels may cause more significant redness, peeling, and temporary sensitivity. These types of chemical peel facials will require a few weeks to fully recover.

It’s important to follow the post-treatment instructions that will be given to you by our estheticians. This could be anything, such as avoiding sun exposure and wearing sunglasses to promote optimal healing and recovery.
