Chemical peels are becoming a big trend in aesthetic care. From treating specific skin concerns to promoting overall skin health and rejuvenation, these facial treatments are highly sought after and are here to stay. In this post, we will explore how chemical peels work and uncover the transformative benefits they offer for a radiant, youthful complexion.

What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are skin care procedures that involve applying chemical solutions to the skin to induce controlled exfoliation and subsequent regeneration. At La Belle Vie, chemical peels are some of our most popular spa services. And they play a multifaceted role in skincare, offering various benefits.

Chemical peels are categorized based on their depth of penetration into the skin, which includes superficial, medium, and deep peels.

Superficial peels primarily target the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis), while medium and deep peels penetrate deeper into the dermis. The choice of peel depth is based on factors such as individual skin type, concerns, and desired outcomes, which can be discussed during your initial consultation at La Belle Vie Medical Spa in Draper, Utah.


What do Chemical Peels Do?

One of the primary roles of chemical peels in skincare is the targeted treatment of various skin concerns. Superficial peels often address uneven skin tone and mild acne or scarring. Medium and deep peels, on the other hand, are effective for treating more advanced concerns like deep wrinkles, sun damage, and pigmentation irregularities.

By promoting exfoliation and stimulating collagen production, chemical peels can improve the appearance of the skin and diminish the signs of aging and environmental damage.

Chemical peels also play a crucial role in promoting overall skin health and rejuvenation by enhancing cellular turnover and stimulating collagen synthesis. By removing dead skin cells and encouraging the growth of new, healthy cells, chemical peels can improve skin texture, tone, and clarity. Additionally, the exfoliating action of chemical peels can help unclog pores, reduce acne breakouts, and minimize the appearance of pores, resulting in a smoother and more radiant complexion.

What About Customization?

One key advantage of undergoing chemical peels at a medical spa is the ability to customize your treatments according to your individual needs and goals. Our practitioners can tailor the type and strength of the chemical peel based on factors such as skin type, sensitivity, and specific concerns. This personalized approach ensures that you receive optimal results with minimal risk of adverse effects, making chemical peels a safe and effective option for improving skin health and appearance.

Chemical peels can also be combined with other skincare treatments to enhance their efficacy and address multiple concerns simultaneously. For example, chemical peels may be complemented by laser therapies, microneedling, or injectable treatments (more on that shortly) to achieve comprehensive rejuvenation results. By incorporating multiple modalities into a customized treatment plan, we can give our clients comprehensive skincare solutions tailored to their unique needs and preferences.

What is the Downtime after a Chemical Peel Procedure?

The recovery period following a chemical peel can fluctuate. It’s all based on the type of peel you choose and your individual skin characteristics.

  • Superficial peels usually entail minimal downtime, characterized by mild redness and peeling lasting a few days.
  • Medium peels may result in moderate redness, swelling, and peeling for about a week.
  • Deep peel often have the most extended downtime, with redness, swelling, and peeling that can last around two weeks.

It’s essential to follow post-peel care instructions provided by our professionals at La Belle Vie to minimize downtime and promote optimal healing.

What distinguishes it is its unique blend of ingredients tailored to combat acne, leading to a clearer complexion with reduced redness and improved texture.

Vitamin A Peel: Rich in retinol, this peel stimulates cell turnover, effectively reducing the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. The vitamin A peel’s key differentiator lies in its potent use of Vitamin A, which promotes collagen production and reveals a brighter, more radiant complexion with improved texture.

Acne Power Peel: Designed to combat acne and breakouts, this peel exfoliates dead skin cells, reduces oil production, and eliminates acne-causing bacteria. What makes it stand out from other peels is its targeted approach to addressing acne concerns, including minimizing pore size and preventing new blemishes, resulting in clearer, healthier skin.

TCA Peel: This medium to deep peel addresses a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, sun damage, and uneven pigmentation.

Chocolate Power Peel: Infused with cocoa extract and antioxidants, this peel nourishes the skin while promoting cell renewal and collagen synthesis. The chocolate power peel’s distinction lies in its luxurious ingredients, offering a pampering experience alongside skin benefits such as improved elasticity, reduced fine lines, and a healthy, radiant glow.

PQ Age Evolution Peel: Combining the benefits of pyruvic acid and Q10 coenzyme, this peel targets multiple signs of aging, including wrinkles, loss of firmness, and dullness. What makes it unique is its innovative formulation. It provides comprehensive anti-aging effects with long-lasting results that help revitalize tired skin for a youthful appearance.

Adding To Your Chemical Peel

One of the procedures our clients routinely combine with a chemical peel is microneedling. This is a dynamic duo for skin rejuvenation!

Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, enhancing texture and minimizing fine lines. Paired with a chemical peel, microneedling allows deeper penetration of active ingredients, refining the skin’s surface and addressing concerns like acne scars and hyperpigmentation. This combo accelerates cellular turnover and boosts the skin’s healing process for smoother, brighter skin.

You can also enhance your skin’s transformation by complementing chemical peels with dermal fillers. While chemical peels rejuvenate the skin’s surface, dermal fillers add volume, plumping areas affected by wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of elasticity. This combination addresses multiple signs of aging simultaneously, providing comprehensive results.

Dermal fillers can also complement the exfoliation effects of chemical peels by hydrating and smoothing the skin, enhancing its texture and radiance.

Together, they offer a complete facial rejuvenation, restoring youthfulness and vitality to your appearance!
