Chemical Peels

Whether you want to combat signs of aging, reduce acne scars, or even out skin tone, chemical peels can be your answer. These popular, non-invasive options improve skin appearance by exfoliating it. Different chemical peels have unique benefits and applications, yet selecting the right chemical peel for your skin’s needs is the key to optimal results.


What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a skin treatment that involves applying an acid-based solution to the skin to create controlled damage and exfoliate dead skin cells. By eliminating dead skin cells from the surface, new skin cells emerge on the surface, resulting in smoother and more youthful-looking skin.

Chemical peels can improve skin conditions such as acne scars, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation.

There are different types of chemical peels used, each offering a unique depth:

  • Superficial (light) peels remove only the outermost layer of skin
  • Medium-depth peels penetrate deeper into the layers beneath

Beyond Skin Aesthetics Chemical Peels

Beyond Skin Aesthetics handpicks our chemical peels, choosing only the best products for the best results.

The BioRePeel is a light peel that exfoliates the top layer of skin to reveal a layer of new skin underneath. The peel also stimulates collagen and elastin production to revitalize the skin's appearance. The BioRePeel is suitable for any skin type and color and helps with acne, skin tightening, pigmentation, scarring, and brightening. With minimal downtime, this peel is perfect for those on the go.

Melanopeel treats hyperpigmentation issues like sun spots, melasma, acne, and discolorations with a combination of vitamins and organic ingredients like tranexamic acid, Vitamin C, azelaic acid, and niacinamide. It can improve overall skin tone and texture.

The VI PEEL is a medium-depth peel that focuses on pigmentation issues by inhibiting the production of melanin, which provides color to the skin. The VI PEEL is ideal for anyone who wants to diminish the appearance of freckles, dark pigmentation spots, rosacea, acne scars, inflammation, sun damage, melasma, and hyperpigmentation of any type. Discuss if your skin is suitable for the VI PEEL with a BSA provider.

The Zo Skin Health 3-step peel is a medium-depth chemical peel suitable for all skin types and colors. The peel corrects skin damage, melasma, uneven skin tone and texture, acne, dull skin, and large pores by exfoliating the skin and stimulating the production of new collagen. The last step in the peel helps calm it to reduce inflammation and lock in moisture.

The ZO stimulator peel is a light peel that uses a combination of citric acid, lactic acid, and salicylic acid to exfoliate dead skin cells and reveal fresh, new skin. It encourages the formation of new skin cells to replace the old ones sloughed off.

Understanding Chemical Peels: How Do They Work?

All chemical peels work by exfoliating away the top layer of skin cells and promoting cell turnover for a fresher and smoother complexion. The treatment also helps increase collagen production. 

During the treatment, we apply the chosen chemical peel onto your face or body. The peel’s acids penetrate the different skin layers and cause controlled injury to the targeted area. This jump-starts new collagen production and triggers a process where damaged skin sheds off gradually. As new layers of healthy skin replace the old ones, you’ll notice improvement in texture, pigmentation issues, fine lines, wrinkles, and scars over time.

The Benefits of Chemical Peels: How They Improve Skin Health

Chemical peels offer a range of benefits that can significantly improve skin health, including:

  • Smoother skin texture: Chemical peels remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover, leading to smoother and brighter skin.
  • Acne treatment: Chemical peels can help control acne by deeply cleansing the pores and reducing oil production.
  • Reduction of hyperpigmentation: Regular chemical peel treatments can fade dark spots caused by sun damage or aging, resulting in more even-toned skin.
  • Minimization of scars: With consistent use, chemical peels can minimize the appearance of scars, including those from acne or injury.
  • Pelvis: Women and men often experience weakening of the pelvic floor and related issues with age. Specific body contouring treatments can improve quality of life by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles.

Chemical peels are a fantastic long-term solution to enhancing complexion and skin health.

Target Areas of Chemical Peels

Facial chemical peels are popular for treating acne, rosacea, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving skin tone and texture. The treatments can be applied to the face, neck, chest, hands, and other parts of the body to target sagging skin and wrinkles by providing firmness and increased elasticity to the skin through new collagen production and exfoliation. Whole body peels are also available.

Often one of the first areas to show signs of aging, chemical peels around the neck and chest area can target sagging skin and wrinkles by providing firmness and increased elasticity to the skin through new collagen production and exfoliation. Chemical peels can fade these imperfections by exfoliating the top layer of skin and promoting new cell turnover.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. When done under professional guidance and following proper protocols, chemical peels are generally safe for most people. However, it's essential to consult with an experienced aesthetician or dermatologist who will assess your needs before undergoing any chemical peel procedure.

Expect your skin to peel anywhere from three to seven days before the shedding stops. While you can resume normal activities, avoid anything that may cause excessive sweating, avoid a lot of sun exposure, and use gentle skin products.

It’s very common for no visible peeling to happen. Some peels don't produce visible shedding. Also, the skin cells are tiny, so you may not be able to see them shedding after your peel.

If your skin is extremely sensitive, you’ve recently undergone chemotherapy, radiation, or Accutane treatment, you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you have vitiligo, or you have a weak immune system, you should not get a chemical peel.
