What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are a versatile treatment type that helps skin to appear healthier, softer, and more supple. It uses a specialized chemical solution to exfoliate the skin and remove dead and damaged skin cells, revealing a new, healthy layer of skin. These treatments range in strength, and different peel types can address different skin concerns.

Am I a Candidate?

Many patients can benefit from chemical peel treatments to address a wide variety of skin concerns like fine lines, acne, pigmentation, and texture. It is important to discuss your goals with our skincare experts who can select the right type of peel based on your goals and skin. Certain skin types and tones might require a specialized peel to avoid the chance of hyperpigmentation.

What Can I Expect During a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels can be performed at our Phoenix office. We offer 3 peels from ZO® Medical:

  • ZO® Stimulator: This light peel brightens and evens the complexion. There is no downtime required, although you may have some slight redness immediately afterward.
  • ZO® 3 Step Peel™: This is a deeper peel aimed at reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne. You may experience significant peeling of the skin afterwards. Patients will need to be pre-conditioned using the ZO® Skin Health/Medical line one month prior to treatment.
  • ZO® Medium Depth Blue Peel: This is a very aggressive peel that will improve the skin’s overall texture, pores, deep lines, and wrinkles. This is only for patients who have received the 3 Step Peel™ in the past and have followed the pre-conditioning skin protocol with the ZO® Skin Health/Medical skincare line.

Chemical Peel Results and Recovery

Your recovery will depend on your unique chemical peel and goals for your skin. You can expect some peeling in the days afterward and may need more or less downtime depending on your peel. You will discuss at length what to expect afterwards during your consultation at our Phoenix office. Most patients benefit from a package of regular chemical peel treatments, depending on your goals and chemical peel choice.
