Chemical Peels Q & A

Become MedSpa

What skin conditions can be treated with a chemical peel?

When you get a chemical peel, one or more layers of your skin are removed. This process eliminates old and damaged skin and promotes the growth of new skin that’s strong and vibrant.

The peels offered by the team at Become MedSpa treat skin problems such as:

  • Dry, dull skin
  • Skin redness
  • Clogged pores
  • Rosacea
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Brown spots (age spots) and sun damage


Every chemical peel doesn’t correct all the problems in the list. The skin conditions treated depend on the depth of your peel.

What are the different types of peels?

There are three general types of chemical peels that are defined by the depth of skin removed by the peel:

Light peel

A light chemical peel exfoliates the outer layer of your skin and is usually gentle enough to repeat on a regular schedule to maintain glowing skin. Light peels treat dry skin, help even out a blotchy complexion, and diminish the appearance of fine lines.

Medium peel

Medium-strength chemical peels remove the outer layer as well as the middle layer of your skin. They improve skin texture, diminish age spots, and soften moderate wrinkles.

Deep peel

Deep chemical peels can produce dramatic results by reaching the lower layer of your skin. In addition to offering all the same benefits as a medium peel, a deep chemical peel treats hyperpigmentation (brown spots, rosacea, and sun damage) and deep wrinkles.

How much downtime will I need to take after a chemical peel?

You won’t need to plan any downtime when you get a light chemical peel. Following a medium peel, you should expect your skin to be red and slightly swollen for a few days, then it starts to peel and flake. The estimated downtime for a medium peel is a week.

A deep peel requires about two weeks of downtime. However, each client heals at a different rate, so you may only need a week to recover.

The signature chemical peels available at Become MedSpa may be complemented by other facial procedures, such as dermaplaning or an oxygen detox.
