What To Expect From a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a treatment where a medical grade solution is used to help remove dead skin and improve smoothness and skin texture. Having a chemical peel also helps decrease clogged pores, reduce acne scarring, generate new collagen and smooth fine lines.  Receiving a chemical peel can help reduce wrinkles and help rejuvenate cells not only on your face, but other areas of your body.

  • Fine Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Pigment Irregularities
  • Acne Scarring

Types of Chemical Peels

  • Micropeel: A mild peel that includes dermaplaning for softer, fresh skin.
  • SkinMedica Vitalize Peel: Suitable for skin types with mild to moderate skin imperfections. Produces noticeable results with minimal downtime.
  • SkinMedica Rejuvenize Peel: Deeper than the Vitalize Peel, it is for patients with more severe skin imperfections. Produces compelling results with moderate irritation after the treatment.
  • Advanced Acne Peel: Gives the skin a clean fresh surface to allow acne to heal.

The Chemical Peel Treatment

Having an acid chemical peel may sound scary because of the name itself. However, these chemical peels are only mildly sensitizing while the peel is being applied. There are very few side effects and they will fade quickly.

  • Depending on peel type, you may experience slight stinging, mild redness tightness or dryness in the area immediately after the peel and for 24 hours.
  • Side effects may vary from one peel to another, but are mild and temporary. You can return to work the same day but avoid strenuous exercise that day.

What Does a Chemical Peel Actually Do?

Chemical peels treat areas of dryness, reduce uneven pigmentation, help control acne, reduce rough skin, improve sun-damaged skin, remove unsightly blemishes, and help remove facial freckles.

As with any type of skin boosting procedure, you may need to repeat the procedure several times over the course of a few months to reach the desired affect. With each chemical peel you will continue to improve the condition of your skin by ‘turning over’ new glowing skin to the surface and sloughing off old and damaged skin. Using medical grade SkinMedica or Skinceutical skin care products between peels can enhance your result even further.

How Many Peels Can You Have?

There is no limit to the number of peels a person can receive as long as improvement continues. Vitalize Peels can be repeated every 3-4 weeks and Rejuvenize Peels every 4-6 weeks. The effect is cumulative with time and can be enhanced with SkinMedica daily regimen products.

Candidates for a Chemical Peel

Most people are candidates for a chemical peel if you want fresh, healthy, glowing skin. However, if you are a patient with conditions like rosacea, lupus or other autoimmune disorders, you should not have chemical peels.

Schedule a consultation with Susan Meers Wells, RN, MS, CANS – our Skin Care Specialist – who will customize a skin care program to meet your individual needs and determine which chemical peel is right for you.



"Before Voluma everyone was always asking me if I was sick or sad – and that’s enough to make you sad. After Voluma I get “Hello” and “How are you”, no more sick and sad, just a lot of smiles. I never smiled before Voluma, now I can’t stop smiling."

"Susan does all my skin care and this is the best my face has ever looked. I wish I had come to her years ago. She is honest, not pushy, gives you options and is very concerned. She wants to make you feel good."

"My experience with Dr. Wells and his team was amazing. I was always treated like family, yet professional at the same time. I appreciate Dr. Wells and his surgical team boosting my self-confidence, especially the moment I walked through the surgery center door. Thank you Dr. Wells for helping me love my body again."

"Dr. Wells and his staff surpassed any expectations I had. They were with me with each step of the process. The kindness and compassion shown went above and beyond. They are truly the best and the results are fantastic. I am so thankful for my experience."

"Wonderful Doctor & staff…great experience and amazing results. Thank you for everything."

"I love the results of my surgery. I would tell any mother that is thinking of having Mommy Makeover surgery to do this for herself. I also LOVE Dr. Wells and his staff – they were all great."

"I had great big bags under my eyes that had become permanent after a sad period in my life.  Rejuvapen literally swept the bags away and made my under eyes smooth again.  I couldn't believe it!"

"For my chronic acne Susan began treatments on my face including chemical peels that put my skin in the freshest, best shape possible to allow my skin to heal.  After a month and a half my skin was completely clear."

"Building on Dr. Wells' reconstruction work, Susan Wells accentuated my chin by using Juvederm to give it additional contours and a very natural look. I am beyond thrilled and honestly amazed at how good I look now."

"I was always embarrassed to go to the pool or the beach because of all the hair on my back. I was constantly shaving where I could before I went out. Having Laser Hair Reduction on my back has been life changing. I literally feel like a new man."

"I had my brows done back in December, Bailey Rae Hancock is awesome. I have had tons of compliments, wish I had done it sooner!"

"I'll start by saying I'm a 39 year old male and slowly over time I have lost a lot of volume in my face. I'm very happy with the results and Rachel is top notch. Very kind and personable and has treated me with honesty and care. Also very recently I have had flare ups of cystic acne and have been seeing Lisa Combs for that. The first time I saw her I had a chemical peel and a couple weeks ago I had an IPL Acne treatment. My face has not been this clear in a long time. "

"Dr. Wells was wonderful doing my breast reduction/lift surgery. I am so pleased with my results and wish I would have done it sooner! His staff are all so sweet and welcoming. He has great bedside manner as well.   "

"The service at Wells is A1. I'm 'Jumping with Joy' over my surgery (gynecomasty). After having my surgery I have a better outlook on life. I feel amazing! The receptionist has treated me kindly and offered water and coffee every single trip!"
