What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels at Shira Laser use innovative, medical-grade PCA Skin products to smooth and enhance the look of treated tissues. Chemical peels consist of FDA-approved, safe chemical solutions that exfoliate skin cells and stimulate new cell growth without pain, invasive treatments, or downtime. 

How does a chemical peel improve skin health?

Chemical peels offer the following anti-aging benefits:

  • Smoother skin
  • Tighter tissues
  • Even-toned skin
  • Younger-looking appearance
  • Healthy glow
  • Reduced acne
  • Diminished scarring
  • Reduced lines, wrinkles, and age spots
  • Fewer imperfections
  • Reductions in pigmentation abnormalities
  • Less skin damage
  • Greater self-confidence

There aren’t any invasive treatments, risks, downtime, or pain associated with chemical peels, yet they provide exceptional, long-lasting anti-aging results. 

Which chemical peels are right for me?

Chemical peels at Shira Laser are available in varying strengths. Some are milder with fewer side effects, but stronger peels often produce longer-lasting results.

To determine which chemical peels are best suited for you, a Shira Laser expert discusses your medical history and desired results. They also examine your skin and customize a treatment plan that maximizes your results. 

What happens during a chemical peel?

During a chemical peel at Shira Laser, your specialist thoroughly cleanses your skin. They apply a peel solution to the treatment areas using gauze. Your provider may use multiple layers of the peel to achieve adequate penetration.

You might feel a slight warming sensation during treatment, which often lasts 10-20 minutes, but Shira Laser offers a Zimmer cooling device to blow cold air onto the treatment area to help eliminate any discomfort.

What can I expect after chemical peels?

After chemical peels, the treated skin may be tender, red, and sensitive to sunlight during the healing process. Your provider can explain how long to expect these occurrences depending on the type of peel you receive. It’s vital to protect your skin from the sun and tanning beds, but there’s no downtime after undergoing chemical peels. 

To achieve the best results, your provider might recommend you undergo several peels spaced apart over time. However, you’ll begin to notice improvements in your skin’s appearance after just one peel. During the weeks following your peel, new cells generate, and you’ll achieve continued improvements. Your provider can let you know when to schedule your next treatment session.
