Exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause premature skin aging like wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots, dryness and discoloration. Because the skin dries out from the heat of the sun, the skin may lose natural oils that keep the skin smooth and supple.
Acne is a skin disease that develops when the hair follicles become clogged with dead skin cells and excessive oil from the skin. The condition is noticeable from the appearance of pimples, blackheads and whiteheads on the face and chest.
Skin that has developed wrinkles, dryness sagging due to overexposure to UVA-UVB radiation. Because these emissions produce free radicals, the skin experiences significant damage over time.
Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin becomes darker from overexposure to the sun, sun damage, disease or injury. The skin has overproduced melanin in the skin, which causes it to become darker overall or produce brown spots and freckles.
Any treatment or procedure that improves the skin by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sagging and age spots. The skin will look younger, healthier and more radiant.
Overtime the skin develops wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration, clogged pores and dryness. These types of skin damage are often the inevitable results of aging, sun exposure, acne, hyperpigmentation and other conditions that effect the texture of the skin. Despite the differences in the causes, the skin can become dull, lose volume, lack smoothness and generally decline in overall appearance. At Advanced Skin Fitness, we recommend getting a chemical peel to remove dead skin cells through encouraged foliation, hydrate the skin, combat sun damage and stimulate the production of collagen for new cell growth. This process is fast, painless and once completed, the skin will heal to eventually reveal smooth healthy new firm skin.
We use Skinceuticals Peels to give you radiant, smooth and glowing skin. Our technicians are skilled at skin rejuvenating procedures, so we will thoroughly evaluate the patient to determine the best chemical peel treatment for their skin.
Once the chemical peel treatment has been completed, the skin will be smoother and rejuvenated. Chemical peels are highly effective at significantly reducing acne, lightening freckles and diminishing discolorations caused by melasma. In addition, skin that is uneven in tone from hyperpigmentation will become more even and vibrant.

A chemical peel is a process that removes dead cells to encourage new cell growth and reveal rejuvenated smooth skin.
Chemical peel procedures can be performed relatively quickly by applying a solution mostly composed of Glycolic, Lactic and/or Salicylic Acid to the skin. This chemical solution improves the texture of the skin by removing its dead skin cells on the outer layers. The damaged skin will eventually exfoliate and peel off. Once this happens, new skin will regenerate through collagen production, which has been triggered by the chemical solution application. The results are healthy, radiant skin that has been hydrated with vitamins to maximize the revitalization of the skin.
The procedure is non-invasive and accelerates the skin’s natural healing process, when collagen production occurs. The skin will be firmer, more elastic and youthful. It’s a fast way to resurface and produce healthier skin.
A chemical peel treatment can take a few minutes or longer, depending on the depth of the penetration and the size of the area being treated.
Chemical peels will normally take about 10-15 minutes for the chemical solution that is applied to begin the exfoliation process.
Patients should wait at least 2 weeks to receive another chemical peel, but it will depend on the patient and how sensitive their skin is, if they should wait longer.
Most patients should return every 3-4 weeks until they see their desired results. Most patients need to have between 4 to 6 treatments before their skin is as smooth and firm as they’d like. To maintain the results, it’s recommended that patients have clinical maintenance once every 4 to 8 weeks.
Chemical peels are not generally painful for superficial procedures.
Most patients don’t experience pain during the procedure, but for sensitive patients a numbing agent can be applied to the skin to block the nerve.
After having a chemical peel, how long do the results lasts?
Superficial peels can last for weeks. Deeper peels can last for months, even years.
With good sun protection, results can last months, even years. This is dependent upon the depth of the peel. The deeper peels generally provide a longer-lasting effect.
Patients may experience mild irritation and redness.
Chemical peels don’t involve much discomfort. Patients may experience some irritation after the procedure, but it’s temporary and shouldn’t interfere with the patients regular schedule. For patients with sensitive skin, a numbing cream can be applied to the skin before the treatment begins.
Depending on the strength of the solution that is used, each patient’s recovery time can vary. Some patients may take a few days to recover and complete the shedding process and others who have had a stronger solution applied may take a couple of weeks to complete the shedding process.
Once the chemical peel procedure has been completed, patients should use sunscreen and antioxidant serums to maintain healthy skin and protect it from further damage.
Because the skin may be a little irritated from the procedure, mild cleansers are recommended for a few days after the procedure, along with sunblock.
