Who is a Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

Generally speaking, if you have fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, acne scars, or other mild to moderate blemishes, then a chemical peel may be appropriate. Inform your practitioner of any allergies and medical conditions you may have before starting the peeling process. Altogether You Med Spa is dedicated to providing safe, effective treatments and exceptional service.

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

During your chemical peel treatment at Altogether You Med Spa, you'll have the opportunity to recline in a comfortable position as we administer your treatment. We give your skin a professional cleansing and exfoliation treatment before applying a solution to your face and/or neck. This solution, personalized based on your skin condition, goals, and other factors as determined during your initial consultation, will be spread onto the skin so it can set for an appropriate length of time. Next, we will wash the peel off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. Patients should bring a light sunscreen and/or a hat to wear outside after the treatment to protect from environmental exposure.

What to Expect After a Chemical Peel

Depending on the strength of the chemical peel you receive, you can expect the face to itch and peel for a few days to a couple of weeks. Dr. Ortiz or a member of his team will explain methods to care for your face during your appointment. Please remember that no matter how badly your skin itches throughout the post-treatment process, it is never a good idea to peel the skin off, as it can result in scarring on your facial skin!

Chemical Peel FAQ

How much does a chemical peel cost?
Dr. Ortiz or a member of his team will talk about your costs during your consultation after they have come up with your personalized treatment plan. The cost of a chemical peel can vary based on the intensity you choose. Altogether You Med Spa takes many payments methods, and we often run specials on treatments like chemical peels. You may also consider buying a package of several chemical peel treatments.

What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
The best chemical peel for you will depend on your unique skin concerns and cosmetic goals. During your consultation, we will help you select which formula is right for your skin. Some things you may want to consider are your overall health, your skin type, the depth of your skin concerns, how long you can spend in recovery, and what you want the peel to accomplish. For your first peel, it is better to select a lighter chemical peel and decide how you like the results. After this, you and your team member may alter your treatment plan to discover the best chemical peel level for your skin.

Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Both dermabrasion and chemical peels are facial rejuvenation procedures that address surface blemishes to give your skin a rejuvenated appearance. The difference is that dermabrasion uses surgical tools (a rotating brush or shaving instrument) to remove the top layer of skin through a careful exfoliating process. A chemical peel uses a caustic solution that is applied to your skin to dissolve dead skin cells. In your initial consultation, we will go over the advantages of each and help you choose whether a chemical peel or dermabrasion best fits your skin goals.

Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Based on the formula selected, you might have mild discomfort when it is on your skin. If you choose a light peel, you may feel some discomfort; however, it can be alleviated with a handheld fan. Medium and deep peels are better for deeper blemishes and give you longer-lasting results, but they are usually more uncomfortable. Topical anesthetics, skin medications, and soothing ointments can be applied to help you feel more comfortable during your chemical peel. Dr. Ortiz or a member of his team will go over skin care after your chemical peel to extend your results.

Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
You may consider combining a chemical peel with another nonsurgical skin treatment at Altogether You Med Spa. In your consultation, be open with us about your skin and cosmetic problems so we can develop a personalized treatment plan to achieve your goals. These may include an injectable treatment for wrinkles (like JUVÉDERM® or BOTOX) plus a chemical peel to rejuvenate your entire face.
