Chemical Peels Aren't Just for Your Face

Chemical peels stimulate skin exfoliation and address lines and wrinkles, scarring, acne, and more. The benefits of chemical peels can be seen on many areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, back, and hands.

The benefits of chemical peels

Chemical peels use chemical solutions to create controlled wounds on your skin that cause it to shed the top layer. Exfoliation stimulates new skin to grow in its place, and the new skin is tighter, smoother, and more toned.

Chemical peels address many cosmetic concerns, including:

Chemical peels are a customizable cosmetic treatment. The types of peels include superficial, medium, and deep peels. Superficial peels are the lightest type of peel and use mild acid. They gently exfoliate the surface layer of skin and are often used on the chest or the backs of hands.

Medium peels penetrate deeper into the skin to address lines and wrinkles and age spots. Deep peels are intense treatments that can treat scars and more serious imperfections. In most cases, deep peels are used only on the face.

Although chemical peels are popular for the face, they are gaining popularity as a treatment for other areas of the body. The skin on your neck, chest, back, shoulders, and hands can see the same benefits from chemical peel treatment as the skin on your face.

Many people suffer from acne or acne scars on their backs or chests. Chemical peels exfoliate your skin and are an effective treatment for acne breakouts and scarring across the body. Chemical peels can be used to tighten and tone the décolleté area for a more youthful look.

Getting a body chemical peel

At Professional Aesthetics & Wellness Center, we offer customized chemical peels based on your skin type and skin concerns. Each consultation includes an exam and discussion about your aesthetic goals and medical history.

We offer a variety of medical-grade chemical peels to treat everything from fine lines and wrinkles to acne scarring and more. Our aesthetic team will recommend a chemical peel based on your treatment area, skin type, and needs.

When you come in for a chemical peel, our team cleanses your skin and prepares it for treatment. We apply a chemical solution to your skin, along with cool compresses, numbing cream, or pain medication to help you remain comfortable.

Chemical peels are affordable and effective, improving the tone, texture, and clarity of your skin. Depending on the type of peel you receive, your skin will exfoliate and heal over the upcoming days and weeks. The new skin is smooth, clear, and toned.

Many patients experience redness during the healing process. It’s important to follow our guidelines for recovery, including caring for your skin and protecting yourself from sun damage. With light chemical peels, you can have multiple treatment sessions over a series of months for best results.
