Reveal Smooth & Healthy Skin

Chemical peels are a type of exfoliation treatment that uses a chemical solution to remove the top layers of dead skin cells. This reveals the smoother, healthier skin underneath. These peels have varying strengths and can address numerous concerns, such as fine lines, acne, age spots, and uneven skin tone. At Soluma Aesthetics, our experienced medical providers will work with you to choose the right peel for your individual needs and desired outcome.

Chemical Peels Treat:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Age spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma and rosacea
  • Mild scarring
  • Freckles
  • Actinic keratosis (pre-cancerous lesion caused by sun exposure)

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

Chemical peels loosen the bonds between the skin tissues on the epidermis to make them slough off, revealing smoother, healthier, and firmer skin underneath. Over time, the accumulation of dead skin cells, excess sebum production, acne damage, and sunlight exposure can make your skin look damaged and dull. Chemical peels remove the damaged layers of skin to reveal the younger skin underneath while stimulating collagen production, which makes your skin look firm, taut, and youthful.

Chemical Peels For Melasma & Rosacea

Melasma and rosacea are common skin conditions that can cause discoloration and redness on the face. Chemical peels can be an effective treatment for both conditions. For melasma, a stronger chemical peel, such as a TCA peel, can penetrate deeper layers of the skin to target the source of unwanted pigmentation. For rosacea, a light chemical peel, such as an AHA peel, can gently exfoliate and reduce redness and inflammation.

  • Completely non-invasive treatment
  • Minimal discomfort during and after the treatment
  • Reveals smoother and healthier skin

  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Customized to target specific skin concerns

Your Chemical Peels Session

When you arrive at Soluma Aesthetics for your chemical peel, your esthetician will cleanse your skin and apply the chemical solution to the treatment area. The solution will be left on the skin for a certain period, depending on the strength of the peel. After removing the solution, a neutralizing solution may be applied, followed by a moisturizer and sun protection.

The strength of the peel will determine the length of the treatment and the recovery time. Light peels may only take a few minutes and require no downtime, while deeper peels can take up to an hour and may require several days of recovery. Your medical provider will discuss the specific details of your treatment before the session begins.

Side Effects & Recovery

Common side effects of chemical peels include redness, stinging, and mild swelling. These side effects are usually temporary and will subside within a few days. In some cases, there may be some flaking or peeling of the skin as it heals. The recovery time will depend on the strength of the peel and your skin type. Light peels require no downtime, while deeper peels may require a few days of recovery. Your medical provider will offer specific aftercare instructions.
