What are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are topical facial treatments much like the facials you would expect from a traditional spa setting. The main difference is chemical peels are directed by medical professionals, and because of that, it is possible to use stronger and more effective topical solutions. Chemical peels use a controlled blend of chemicals and skincare products to exfoliate the skin. By exfoliating the skin, chemical peels can reduce damaged, aged, discolored and otherwise imperfect qualities of the skin. After the skin is exfoliated, smooth, youthful and vibrant skin is revealed. With a variety of chemical peel treatments to choose from, this is a versatile procedure, and is used for cosmetic concerns that include:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage
- And more

How long does it take to recover from a chemical peel?
The recovery process following a chemical peel will depend on the strength of the treatment received. Milder treatments will allow patients to fully recover in a few days, while patients who receive more aggressive treatments may not be fully recovered for multiple weeks.
Is a chemical peel safe?
A chemical peel is perfectly safe when administered by a licensed professional. At Art of Balance Wellness Spa, our team is well-equipped and qualified to provide safe chemical peel treatments.
At what age can you get a chemical peel?
Chemical peels are highly customizable and suitable for all ages. That said, patients in their 20s and 30s may not require peels as aggressive as patients in their 50s and 60s. By developing a healthy chemical peel routine early, you can ensure the long-term health and beauty of your skin.
Does chemical peel remove dark circles?
Dark circles commonly develop around the eyes, where the skin is thinner than on other areas of the face. Because of this, chemical peels are not a recommended solution. Chemical peels can damage the eyeballs when applied on or around the eyelids. However, if there are dark circles caused by hyperpigmentation elsewhere on the face, then chemical peels can be an effective solution.
Are chemical peel results permanent?
Chemical peels can create long-lasting results, but they cannot prevent the skin from aging or experiencing sun damage in the future. Although the results are not permanent, they can be easily maintained by taking good care of the skin and receiving regular chemical peel treatments.
