Personalized Peels at PURE

What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are non-surgical treatments that use a controlled application of acid solutions to exfoliate the skin. Common ingredients include lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid, depending on your skin type, your preferences and your goals for treatment. Chemical peels remove rough skin, stimulate collagen production, and improve skin texture and tone. PURE Cosmetic Center offers a variety of chemical peels, including:

  • Light Peels (Superficial Peels): Ideal for brightening the skin and addressing damage from sun exposure, mild acne, and uneven skin tone with minimal to no downtime.
  • Medium Peels: Target small wrinkles, fine lines, deeper sun damage, and uneven skin texture for a more dramatic improvement.
  • Medium-Deep Peels: Provide a more dramatic result, addressing deeper wrinkles, acne scars, other complexion issues.

Chemical Peels for a Brighter You

The procedure involves cleaning the skin, applying the topical solution, and then potentially neutralizing it. You may experience some tingling or burning during the treatment. Depending on the peel depth, you may have some peeling or flaking after the procedure. Typically a series of 3-4 sessions is recommended for optimal results.

Chemical Peel Results

You will begin to see results from your chemical peel within a few days, with the full effects becoming visible within a few weeks. Depending on the type of peel and how well you care for your skin, the results can last for several months. Results are most optimal when peels are performed as a series of 3 or 4 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. It’s important to continue to stay away from the sun or to use sunscreen while out in the sun both before and after your peel.

Chemical Peel FAQs

While both exfoliate the skin, chemical peels are much stronger than face scrubs. Scrubs physically remove dead skin cells from the surface, while chemical peels use acid solutions to penetrate into deeper layers of skin, stimulating collagen production and achieving more dramatic results.

The cost of a chemical peel can vary depending on the type of peel, the size of the area treated, and the experience of the provider.
