Demolish the Damage

What is a Chemical Peel?

Our Carmel Chemical Peels are non-invasive treatments that remove damaged top layers, boost cell turnover, and promote collagen growth for a more radiant, even-toned complexion. By causing controlled harm at a precise depth, the treatment enhances skin structure and gives it a more youthful appearance.

What are the benefits of a Chemical Peel?

Acne, acne scars, age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation, rough skin, UV damage, and fine lines can all be treated with chemical peels—there’s one for just about any of your skin concerns. Chemical Peels can be used on your neck, chest, and backs of your hands, but their primary use is on your face.

Treats a Variety of Problems

Am I a good candidate for a Chemical Peel?

Most people can benefit from a variety of Chemical Peels because they’re able to treat a wide range of problems. An expert provider like Dr. Luerssen can suggest a solution that best addresses your problems and skin type in terms of strength and depth.

Accommodations for your Safety

Your Chemical Peel Procedure

The intensity of your chemical peel will determine how you respond to therapy. In most cases, an anesthetic isn’t needed for light to medium peels. For deeper peels, you might need a local anesthetic, potent oral or IV sedation, and painkillers. Whatever the case, Dr. Luerssen will make accommodations for your comfort and safety during treatment.

The treated area will be washed, and the Chemical Peel solution will be applied to your face. It’ll be kept on for anywhere between a few minutes and an hour. As the solution is applied to your skin, you can experience mild to strong sensations of itching, stinging, or burning, but often your skin is numbed beforehand to prevent any discomfort. Your skin is will be protected with sunscreen afterward.

Expert Aftercare

Chemical Peel Recovery

Only two to four days are needed for light to medium peels to heal, during which your skin may seem burnt or feel dry and sensitive. Deeper peels can cause discomfort for seven to twelve days, and extra redness and flaking might linger for up to three months.

After receiving the Chemical Peel pain control after deeper peels will be individualized, but usually tylenol or nsaids are sufficient. To lower the chance of infection or scarring, don't pick at any peeling or flaking skin and follow Dr. Luerssen’s aftercare recommendations. These recommendations will include wearing sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, avoiding makeup and exercise until peeling stops, and always communicating any questions or concerns to help keep you as safe as possible.

Improve Tone and Texture

Chemical Peel Results

As the post-peel symptoms fade, you should start to see changes in your skin's tone and texture. Once new collagen grows, your complexion will continue to get better over time. The full benefits—more dramatic improvements to the visual quality of your skin—should become apparent in three months or less.

Length of results from this therapy can vary wildly based on several factors. The most lightweight Chemical Peels can last up to two months, and medium peels tend to range from two to four months, but the strongest peels have been reported to last decades, and sometimes even a lifetime.
