Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

A chemical peel is a treatment to remove the top layer of your skin, which takes the brunt of damage from the sun, pollution, makeup, and lifestyle and environmental factors. 

Years of built-up damage can result in a wide range of skin care problems, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and hyperpigmentation.

What can chemical peels treat?

Several different types of chemical peels can transform the tone and texture of your skin. Depending on the type of chemical peel you choose, Marti can treat:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Light scarring
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage
  • Dull skin
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dry or oily skin

By removing the surface layer of your skin, a chemical peel can reveal the fresh, untouched skin underneath.

What are the different types of chemical peels?

There are several different types of chemical peels, but the three main treatments are:

Light chemical peel

A light chemical peel removes the outermost surface layer of your skin to eliminate fine lines, uneven skin tone, dyness, and even acne.

Medium chemical peel

A medium chemical peel reaches deeper than a light chemical peel. By reaching the deeper layers of your skin, the peel can treat more severe skin tone imbalances, acne, and pigmentation issues.

Deep chemical peel

A deep chemical peel removes deep skin cells to eliminate fine lines and creases, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and more.

What happens during chemical peels?

Depending on the type of chemical peel you choose, Marti cleanses your skin and applies a special solution of glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or other topical acids. This solution may turn your skin white, causing it to dry. Next, Marti uses a neutralizing solution to remove the acid from your skin.

A peel ultimately dries the top layer of your skin, causing it to slough off, which reveals the new skin underneath. Over the next few days, your skin can start to peel. Peeling depends on the type of peel that was used.

Chemical peels are safe and effective at improving your skin tone and texture. Depending on the type of peel you enjoy, you can return to Elevate Medical Spa monthly or a few times a year to reap the benefits of these minimally invasive treatments.
