Chemical peels are a fascinating way to cheat aging and turn back the clock, but the string of words themselves and a quick glance at google images might make those unfamiliar with these liquid beauty-boosters a little apprehensive. Fear not—chemical peels are a safe, non-invasive way to shed away unwanted aging, revealing fresh, youthful skin.
There’s a lot to unpack in the world of chemical peels—let’s take a dive into ageless beauty.
What are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel occurs are when a specialized solution is applied to the surface of your skin. After a certified professional applies the solution, depending on the intensity, skin is meant to sluff off, blister, or completely peel to give the patient an all-around better complexion. The number of layers removed depends on the intensity of the peel, as there are light, medium, and maximum concentration treatments.
Formulas vary from peel to peel. Common ingredients are alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), trichloroacetic acids (TCA), and phenol. AHA and BHA are the gentlest acids, often used in mild peels. TCA peels can be used in varying formulas, and phenol is the toughest on aging, best used for deep, potent peels.
The best chemical peels on the market are SkinMedica Peels, developed with a range of beauty-enhancing benefits. SkinMedica Peels are available in three different levels:

SkinMedica Rejuvenize Peel
If you want to kick anti-aging into mach speed, the Rejuvenize Peel dissolves wrinkles, improves clarity, smooths out discoloration, and calms skin texture for baby-soft skin. The deep peel comes with moderate peeling, but the results are worth a few days of downtime
What are the Benefits of a Chemical Peel?
With the removal of dead skin comes a gold mine of collagen-boosting benefits. After a chemical peel, you can expect a reduction in your fine lines, wrinkles, and overall texture, as well as improvements to photodamage that comes with too much sun exposure. Say goodbye to acne, age spots, and dull appearances, and a deep enough peel can eliminate pre-cancerous growths.
Are Chemical Peels Right for Me?
If you’re worried about acne, wrinkles, sun spots, texture, pore size, or are seeking a more youthful appearance, chemical peels are safe and effective for any skin type, including patients with darker complexions. Peels can be done nearly anywhere on the body and are common on the face, but can be applied on the back, chest, and even hands. Chemical peels should always be performed by licensed Estheticians. No matter how much you think you know, there are always dangers of slip-ups and skin damage when trying a peel at home.
