What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels at Appiah's Signature MedSpa use safe, FDA-approved solutions to exfoliate outer skin cell layers and stimulate new cell growth. The treatment is highly effective for reducing common signs of aging and promoting younger-looking skin and a healthy glow.

What are the benefits of chemical peels?

Chemical peels offer the following benefits:

  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Younger-looking appearance
  • Smoother, tighter, lifted skin 
  • Even-toned skin
  • Fewer imperfections
  • Reduced acne
  • Less scarring
  • Self-confidence

Chemical peels are simple, quick, painless procedures that promote exceptional anti-aging results. These treatments come in various strengths based on your skin type, treatment preferences, and desired outcome. 

Am I a candidate for chemical peels?

An Appiah's Signature MedSpa provider determines which type of chemical peel, if any, best meets your needs. They examine your skin, discuss your medical history, and ask about your cosmetic goals. Your aesthetic specialist reviews treatment options with you and lets you know what to expect.

In addition to chemical peels, Appiah's Signature MedSpa also provides Botox®, dermal fillers, microneedling, facials, laser treatments, medical weight loss, intravenous (IV) therapy, and many other cosmetic and wellness solutions.

What happens during chemical peels?

During treatment, a specialist cleans your skin and numbs it if necessary. They apply a chemical solution to your skin for a period of time while you relax. After treatment, a specialist washes off or neutralizes the solution. You can then resume typical daily activities.

What can I expect after a chemical peel?

After you have a chemical peel, treated tissues may be swollen, red, or tender — similar to a sunburn. They may begin to flake off. It’s vital to protect treated skin from the sun and tanning beds. Apply healing serums to your skin as advised. 

During the healing period, new cells grow and treated tissues appear younger, flawless, and healthier. 

Periodically repeating chemical peels at Appiah's Signature MedSpa provides exceptional anti-aging results. Your provider determines when to schedule your next visit based on your skin type and the strength of your chemical peel.
