Chemical Peels Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment Ms. Gonzalez uses to remove the damaged top layers of your skin to reveal healthier, younger skin underneath.

Chemical peels are minimally invasive treatments that cause trauma to the top few layers of your skin, which causes them to peel off after treatment.

The skin underneath those layers is usually much smoother and free of wrinkles and fine lines. After your chemical peel, you may also notice a more even skin tone and a brighter, more youthful complexion.

There are several different chemical peels, each of which Ms. Gonzalez uses for varying skin issues. She thoroughly evaluates your skin to determine which chemical peel is best for your goals.


How can a chemical peel help me?

If you’re not happy with how your skin looks in the mirror, a chemical peel is one option that can help. Signs of aging are hard on your confidence, making chemical peels even more appealing.

Ms. Gonzalez uses chemical peels for various skin concerns, including:

  • A smoother complexion
  • Decreased acne scars
  • An even skin tone
  • Fewer wrinkles and fine lines
  • Fewer age spots
  • A healthier glow

Ultimately, chemical peels are a way to enhance your skin tone and improve your skin’s appearance without undergoing expensive cosmetic surgery.


What happens during a chemical peel?

Ms. Gonzalez thoroughly cleanses your skin during a chemical peel before the treatment. Cleaning your skin allows Ms. Gonzalez to eliminate excess oils or dirt on the surface.

She then covers your eyes and protects your hair from the chemical solution. Ms. Gonzalez applies the chemical solution over your skin. Different types of chemical peels  may include the following chemicals:

  • Glycolic acid
  • Lactic acid
  • Carbolic acid
  • Salicylic acid
  • Trichloroacetic acid

After she applies the chemical, it begins to cause a controlled injury to the top layers of your skin. You may feel stinging or discomfort, which Ms. Gonzalez neutralizes with a cool compress after the chemical is washed off or neutralized.

After your treatment, the new skin shows through right away. Depending on the type of peel you had, you may have some redness and irritation for a few days.
