Chemical Peels

Chemical peels may sound like a distressing treatment, while they are usually the opposite! Our clients find our peels to be quite relaxing, while providing them with a more youthful appearance.

The purpose of a chemical peel is to remove the layer of dead skin on your face or neck and provide you with refreshed, younger looking skin. Chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, fade mild scars, smooth some wrinkles, treat acne, and reduce age spots.

During a chemical peel, our Aesthetician will apply a very thin coating of a chemical solution to your face. You may feel a slight tingling sensation while the chemicals are working. Depending on the type of peel you received, you will notice some redness and peeling on your skin while the peel is working its magic. If you received a stronger chemical peel, you may have some blisters and peeling for 1 – 2 weeks after the treatment. Do not ever pull the peeling skin off of your face, as you may cause scarring. Allow the peeling skin to come off naturally and never use a rough exfoliate on your skin (especially after a chemical peel).

Chemical peels can be repeated every week to once a month, dependent on the type of peel you have received. Our Aesthetician will determine what type of chemical peel will work best for your skin and help you achieve the results you are wanting. We also provide organic peels for those who have sensitive skin.

At The Dermatology Center of Indiana, we use IMAGE SKINCARE (or name of line here) which allow us to create a customized peel based on your skin type. Even those with sensitive skin can take advantage of the benefits of a chemical peel by receiving an organic peel.
