What is a Chemical Peel?

Nov 11, 2022 | Authored By Liz, Splendore the Medical Spa

I think for most women, we hear the words ‘chemical peel’ and it makes us nervous. We remember when our friends would get them in the late 90s or early 2000s to treat acne and they would be beet red for DAYS. Think of Samantha in that Sex and the city episode, terrifying! And let’s not forget shedding layers like a snake for what felt like forever. The end result was beyond effective but the process was tedious.

Fast forward to the present day and we have come a long way – thank goodness. 

If you give us 20 minutes, we can get you on the road to a new complexion with a chemical peel.

If you have skin you can benefit from a peel. Melasma, hyperpigmentation, freckles, acne scars, or dark spots from sun exposure or tanning beds, a chemical peel may be the answer to restore YOUR skin’s youthful appearance.

At Splendore, we apply the peel to your skin like an artist with a paintbrush 

to remove the top layers. You may feel a tingling because those are the medical-grade ingredients hard at work!

The new skin underneath? It’s smoother…softer…undamaged…more youthful.

Will you be red afterward? Only with some peels. Just imagine that you got a little sun (and you weren’t wearing sunscreen).

At Splendore we offer many different peels customized to you and your skin concerns, only the best for our patients. 

Not only will your skin texture drastically improve, but it will also reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Hello, win-win!

The fall season is the perfect time of year to shed the dead…and a chemical peel is the ideal start.

See you soon for some self care!
