How Onyx Aesthetics Handles Chemical Peels

Chemical peels refer to a collection of different cosmetic treatments that exfoliate layers of skin away from your face. These treatments can vary in intensity and frequency, but they’re all targeted at helping you get younger, healthier, more vibrant-looking skin by stripping away the surface layer and encouraging newer and better skin growth.

Your skin is constantly changing and shedding, but there are times where this process is slow and inefficient. Chemical peels are a direct way to encourage your skin to regrow and repair itself, and also allow you to influence its improvements by adding specific products or having additional treatments after chemical peels. While it’s not the most gentle of skin rejuvenation or skin tightening treatments, it's a fairly straightforward way of improving the health and appearance of your skin.

Because chemical peels can come in different types, it can be hard for someone to pick out which particular chemical peel will work best for their specific skin concern. We help our patients get through this process with intense, deliberate consultations that take into account their medical history, desired results, and overall compatibility with the chemical peel procedure. By personalizing treatments to the patient, we’re able to provide them with better results.

FAQs About Chemical Peel Treatments

Q: Can I Get Chemical Peels At Home?

A: Light peels or superficial peels can be purchased online or at your local pharmacy, and can be safely used on your skin with enough practice and careful application. Anything above a light peel should always be done in-office by a professional since the acidic components of chemical peels can quickly cause you injuries if you aren’t careful. If you’re not confident with your skills even with light peels, it is recommended to have them done in-office to ensure that no significant side effects occur.

Q: What Are The Side Effects Of Chemical Peels?

A: Side effects of a chemical peel can increase depending on the strength of the chemical peel. Deeper peels require more time and effort to recover compared to light peels, though both need post-procedure aftercare to accelerate the healing process. Because the top layer of your skin has been removed, you’re prone to developing issues like a skin infection or discoloration if you aren’t careful – which is why you should always follow the aftercare instructions provided by your doctor.

Q: When Can I See The Results Of Chemical Peels?

A: Chemical peels typically have visible results as soon as your treatment is finished, though stronger peels will require the skin to heal before you can see the full results. It’s also why listening to your provider’s instructions about aftercare is so important, since any mishandling of the treated area can cause the effects to be less noticeable once the skin heals. Given that you typically need to wait for a few weeks to a few months before getting another peel, this makes aftercare extremely crucial to the success of your treatment.

Q: Can I Use Other Skincare Products After A Chemical Peel?

A: Discuss any use of products with your doctor before application. Remember, your skin will be peeling for the next 7-14 days after treatment, which results in increased sensitivity, and could make your skin react negatively to certain ingredients. However, some products can work well with your skin recovery, like hyaluronic acid serums, but remember to ask first before application. Please note, you will be given a after-treatment kit, including products and instructions, that addresses your post-treatment affairs before you leave the office.

Chemical peels are a great way to unveil your younger, healthier skin – but it’s important to find a provider that understands the different types of peels and how to use them effectively for your specific skin concern.
