How it works

In this treatment, an acid solution is applied to the face in order to safely and effectively remove the first, “damaged” layer of the skin. The chemical solution is intended to slough off the outermost layer of the skin to reveal fresher, brighter, more even-toned skin. A chemical peel targets pigmentation, blemishes, acne scars and more.

What it treats

Chemical peels are safe and effective to be applied to the face and certain areas of the body such as the back. Chemical peels treat acne, dark spots and other skin irregularities.


Chemical peels aid the body’s natural exfoliation process by using beneficial chemicals such as lactic, salicylic, glycolic, and retinoic acids to slough off dead matter. This reveals young, smooth, and vibrant skin underneath.

Treatment Concerns

Acne is a skin condition that affects people of all ages and backgrounds. It is one of the most common skin issues and it can have a major impact on a person’s appearance. It causes redness, swelling, and inflammation of the skin, which can be embarrassing to many people.

Acne scars are the last result of those who struggle with acne. They commonly visibly create textural concerns and an uneven complexion. Minimally invasive treatments can help smooth and heal the skin tone and texture.

Aging can be a difficult process and can cause us to feel embarrassed or unconfident in our own skin. There are many solutions available today to help reduce the visible signs of aging for a more youthful-looking appearance.

Backne is acne found on the back. This skin condition is hard to see and treat by yourself because of the placement. Backne appears as redness, swelling, and inflammation of the skin, which can be embarrassing especially when wearing a bikini.

Dark spots and pigmentation can be the result of scarring, genetics or can form from other causes. Restore and revitalize your complexion with non-invasive treatments at Aesthetica Medspa.

Sun damage and pigmentation can adversely affect the appearance of the skin, leading to premature aging, wrinkles, and discoloration. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments that can help reduce the signs of sun damage and restore a more even and healthy-looking complexion.

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, but they can have a significant impact on someone’s self-confidence. They also make it difficult to apply makeup since some products may settle into the creases of the skin. We provide the perfect alternatives to smooth out wrinkles without the expense and hassle of surgery.

About Chemical Peels

Chemical peels should only be administered under the care of a highly trained professional given the varying strengths of the peels available. At Aesthetica, after a thorough consultation, our professionals will recommend which chemical peel is appropriate for you based on your skin type and aesthetic goals. We offer gentle peels for individuals seeking skin rejuvenation with little downtime and more aggressive peels for those seeking dramatic results. Chemical peels are typically performed in a series; however results can be seen after only one treatment.

1. The Basics

If you’re new to chemical peels, here’s the basic concept: after cleansing your skin, an aesthetician or other medical professional will apply a specialized, acidic formula. After letting it work on your skin for a few minutes, it will be washed away. Over the following several days, your skin will look and feel like it’s sunburned before the damaged surface skin peels away. This reveals brighter, smoother, younger-looking skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and other surface imperfections.

2. Three Depths of Peels

Chemical peels can have any number of strength levels, but there are three basic categories: light, medium, and deep. Within these types are different approaches to chemical peels, and at Aesthetica MedSpa, we offer a variety that can be customized for your skin and goals.

3. Light Peels

Light Peels (or superficial chemical peels) can treat a number of skin issues including lines and wrinkles, acne, and scarring, and can improve skin texture. All chemical peels lighten the signs of sun damage and melasma by reducing pigmentation.
Light peels produce a minimal amount of peeling – in some cases, no visible peeling at all. They typically use alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) like citric, glycolic, lactic, malic, or tartaric acids. Other light peels use beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) like salicylic acids. Any light peel will reduce fine lines, dryness, acne, and minor pigment irregularities. They’re particularly effective when patients receive a series of several peels and are often paired with microdermabrasion to optimize the results of radiant, younger-looking skin.

4. Medium Peels

Medium peels penetrate deeper into the skin for more significant peeling and more dramatic results. They usually use trichloracetic acid (or TCA), although they can use different concentrations of TCA.
On top of the issues light peels can treat, medium peels address acne scars, advanced sun damage and pigment imperfections, and deeper wrinkles.

5. Deep Peels

Finally, deep peels are much more extensive procedures and deliver great results that are comparable to a facelift. They need to be performed by an experienced medical esthetician and require 1-2 weeks recovery time. When you come in for your consultation, your medical esthetician will work with you to determine the strength of peel needed to achieve your desired outcome.
