Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are a treatment that triggers the shedding of your outermost layer of skin. The skin below is undamaged, unlined, and unblemished  — which gives you a healthy, youthful glow! 

Chemical peels include acids that encourage exfoliation. Chemical peels use a range of different acids, including alpha-hydroxy, glycolic, salicylic, and lactic acids. The exact acid for your peel depends on how strong of a peel you need. 

The most popular area for chemical peels is the face, but you can also have chemical peels on your neck or even your hands.

What kind of skin issues can a chemical peel treat?

Chemical peels can treat many different skin problems, including:

  • Hyperpigmentation, such as age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rough, patchy skin texture
  • Uneven skin tone

Before doing a chemical peel, your MiKO Med Spa specialist performs a full skin analysis and discusses your goals with you. This allows them to design a customized plan to give you optimal results.

What is the chemical peel process like?

The medical director of MiKO Med Spa, experienced aesthetic physician Dr. Michael K. Obeng, personally designed all chemical peel protocols. A highly trained specialist performs your peel. 

Your MiKO Med Spa specialist applies the chemical peel solution to your face, neck, or hands, taking care to avoid sensitive areas like your eyes. Your skin might sting slightly, or feel a bit warm, as the peel does its work. This is a good sign because it means the acid is doing its job in breaking down the old skin. 

The peel solution stays on your skin for anywhere from a few seconds up to 20 minutes, depending on the peel strength and your needs. Then, your MiKO Med Spa aesthetics specialist applies a neutralizing solution, and you’re done!

How do I take care of my skin after a chemical peel?

Your MiKO Med Spa specialist gives you specific recovery instructions. Although you won’t generally have to take time off work after a chemical peel, your skin could peel for a week or longer with some peels. Usually, it takes only a few days until your skin layer peels off to reveal the skin below. 

It’s important to be very careful about caring for your skin properly in the days following the peel. Your care provider might prescribe a special ointment or face care regimen after your peel.
