At Elite Image Studio, we offer chemical peels to our clients who want bright, vibrant, youthful looking skin. However, many people are hesitant to get chemical peels because they do not know much about them.

Who should get a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are most effective for people with fair skin and light hair. Though it is possible for someone with darker skin to have good results, uneven skin tone is more likely after the procedure.

What are the benefits of chemical peels?

Chemical peels can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin. The peel blisters off the rough outer layer of your skin to reveal a new layer of skin underneath. Chemical peels can reduce fine lines, smooth wrinkles, erase sun damage, improve the appearance of scars, treat certain types of acne, reduce freckles or age spots, and smooth the skin.

What can I expect after a chemical peel?

After your chemical peel, a reaction similar to a sunburn occurs. Generally, the skin peels, revealing redness and then scaling. This should end after a week. You will have to wear bandages for several days. Additionally, your new skin will be very delicate, so you should take extra precautions to avoid the sun for several months afterwards.

What are the possible complications?

People with certain skin types may develop temporary or permanent skin color change. Discoloration is more likely if you take birth control, have had subsequent pregnancies, or you have a family history of skin discoloration. There is also a low risk of scarring.
