Chemical Peels

by Healthylooks MedSpa


A quick way to address several skin concerns.
Exfoliate your skin on a deeper level for a bright,  even-toned complexion.

Why It’s Special

  • Hit the reset button on your skin — ideal for texture, pores, and pigment, too! – Address visible signs of sun damage, rough texture, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, and acne.
  • If you’ve got a little downtime, this might be the option for you — your skin will be bright and smooth after a few days of shedding.

What to Expect

During your appointment we will cleanse and remove any excess oils, allowing the peel to penetrate deeper. Then, we will apply The Perfect Peel which will have a slight sting for about 30 seconds. The patient will leave with the peel on and sleep with it overnight. We will send the patient home with a post-peel kit and detailed instructions. Patients will begin to significantly peel day 3 through 6 and will be completely finished with the peeling process by day 7.

Chemical Peels


Chemical Peel pre and post-treatment care

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun. 

Following treatment, AVOID: 

  • Sun tanning or any exposure to direct sunlight for 2 weeks – USE SUNSCREEN 
  • No exercise while inflammation exists – usually 24 to 48 hours 
  • No jacuzzi, saunas or steam baths for 24 to 48 hours
