What Can Chemical Peels Do?
Because of the aging process and environmental stressors, our skin cells tend to slow down and become “sluggish” over time. This leads to dullness, dryness, and visible signs of breakdown and damage.
Regular chemical peels can help to rejuvenate your look by revitalizing your skin and giving its cells a “push” back toward being productive. This makes peels ideal for addressing a range of concerns, such as dryness, uneven skin tone, skin texture, congested pores, dullness, acne, and more!
Specifically, chemical peels offer numerous benefits, including lightening pigmentation irregularities, reducing fine lines, increasing skin hydration, strengthening the epidermis (outermost layer of skin), and restoring a healthy glow.

What Types of Chemical Peels Are Available?
There are different levels of peels, each with a different intensity and intended outcome. At Radiance Skin Therapy & Laser Center, the two main levels of peels we offer are superficial chemical peels (also known as “exfoliations”) and medium-depth chemical peels. At Radiance, we offer:
- PCA SKIN® Chemical Peel Solutions
- Our very own, specially formulated Radiance Peels
- VI Peel Original
- VI Peel Precision Plus
- VI Peel Purify with Precision Plus
Exfoliations are beneficial for many different skin concerns. Patients with acne can achieve a more clear complexion. Patients with textural concerns achieve smoother, more vibrant skin. Clients with uneven skin tone see those irregularities fade. No matter what the reason, exfoliations done on a regular basis can help a multitude of skin troubles.
When you choose to do an exfoliation vs a deeper peel you should plan on a treatment every four to six weeks to get the results you and help maintain the youthful appearance that we all love to see.
If you desire an accelerated result, than you might opt for one of our medium depth peels. Accompanied with a few days of downtime, results are quicker and don’t require as many treatments in a year.
Chemical peels aren’t just for the face and neck! They are great for most areas of the body. Some of our popular options include back acne (bacne), arms for both texture and pigment irregularities, as well as underarms for hyperpigmentation known as “acanthosis nigricans”.
What Happens Before and After Chemical Peel Sessions?
Using medical-grade skincare products prior to an exfoliation is not necessary, but it can be helpful in maximizing results. Think of it like brushing your teeth between dental visits! Not only can medial grade skin care products maximize results, they can reduce unnecessary side effects.
For best results with any depth peel, we recommend that you use medical-grade skincare products for six to eight weeks before a treatment. In fact, all Radiance’s peels can be incredibly effective when combined with medical-grade products to help aging skin conditions or bothersome acne.
What Other Skin Treatments Are Available?
Chemical peels are great for rejuvenating the skin, but they are not the only option at Radiance Skin Therapy & Laser Center. Microdermabrasion, microneedling, HydraFacial® MD, and more are also available. It’s best to speak with your aesthetician to decide the best treatment plan for your skin and to help you reach your goals.
