Three Signs You Need a Chemical Peel


Men and women looking for a highly customizable skin rejuvenation treatment that can address a wide variety of concerns simultaneously may be excited to learn more about chemical peels. At Beautiful Skin Denver, our expert aesthetic team offers a full range of professional and medical-grade chemical peels to help our clients achieve or restore the smooth, radiant, youthful complexion they desire. Curious to know if a chemical peel may be right for you? Below are three questions that can help you find the answer.

All about chemical peels

Before deciding if a chemical peel may be beneficial for you, it’s important to understand what the treatment is and how it works. A chemical peel is a nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatment that works to improve the health and appearance of a person’s complexion by damaging the outer layers of skin using a specialized chemical agent. After the damaged skin sloughs off and the face heals, clients will enjoy a fresher, healthier-looking complexion. Based on the nature and severity of the client’s concerns, our team will recommend the most appropriate strength and solution for treatment. Chemical peels can be performed as light, medium, or deep peels and are offered with the following agents:

  • Mandelic acid
  • Glycolic acid
  • Salicylic acid
  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)
  • Lactic acid
  • Retinol
  • Jessners

We also offer medical-grade VI peels, which are a fantastic option for first-time chemical peel clients.

Should I get a chemical peel?

Because chemical peels are highly customizable, they are considered safe, appropriate, and effective for most people. However, there are a few exceptions, such as women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, those with a history of certain skin conditions, and others. During your initial consultation for skin treatments in Denver, CO, one of our knowledgeable skincare experts will thoroughly evaluate your skin, review your health history, and determine if you may be a good candidate for a chemical peel. In the meantime, the three questions below can give you a better idea of what signs and symptoms may mean a chemical peel could be beneficial for your skin:

1. Do you have mild to moderate signs of aging?

Fine lines, wrinkles, and other common signs of early facial aging can be visibly improved with a chemical peel.

2. Do you have discoloration on your face?

With a chemical peel, clients can help to fade many forms of hyperpigmentation, including:

  • Age spots
  • Sun spots/sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Blotchy skin

3. Do you have acne?

Whether you have recurrent acne flare-ups or old acne scars, a chemical peel can help you get smoother, clearer skin.

How often should I get a chemical peel?

The frequency of chemical peels will vary from person to person based on their skin type, the strength of the peel, the type of chemical peel performed, and other factors. It is important to allow the skin to fully heal between treatments and to avoid direct sun exposure during this time. Following your chemical peel, our team will discuss an appropriate schedule for your treatment and suggest additional treatments and procedures that can help to further boost your results in the meantime. With a dedicated at-home and professional in-office skincare regimen, you can keep your complexion looking vibrant and healthy.
