CHEMICAL PEELS

At Aloha Med Spa, we offer a variety of chemical peels. After a thorough skin consultation, medical history review, and discussion of patient expectations and contraindications, we develop a treatment plan based on your needs.

Benefits of a Chemical Peel:

  • Relieves congestion, dullness, and sallowness

  • Increase cell turnover to retexturize and smooth the skin

  • Immediate improvement in skin clarity, texture, and radiance

  • Refined pores

  • Enhances anti-aging and skin disease treatment outcomes

  • Improves skin aging, hyperpigmentation, acne, and rosacea

  • Enhances skin hydration

  • Minimal downtime- minor flaking and redness may occur 3-5 days post-peel

  • Great for ALL skin types

What to expect:

  • The peel procedure will take 20-60mins depending on the time the peel stays on the skin before neutralizing, the number of layers needed, or client comfort level.

  • The peel is formulated to penetrate deeply into the epidermal layers, triggering cell turnover with minimal exfoliation.

  • Individual results vary – you may or may not peel, depending on the quantity of peel used and the time the peel is on the skin.

  • Skin may appear slightly flushed for the first 24-48 hours post procedure with the possibility of light flaking or peeling at approximately days 3 to 5.

  • NOTE: The skin does not need to physically peel in order to experience the benefits of a chemical peel- everyone’s experience will be unique and different.

After treatment care instructions:

  • Treatment area may be washed with a gentle cleanser and cool water.

  • Moisturize and Hydrate the skin.

  • Apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or more.

  • Avoid strenuous exercise, dry saunas, and steam rooms until fully healed.

  • Don’t over exfoliate.

  • Once skin feels “back to normal” it’s ok to resume your normal skin care regimen.

  • Any previous negative reaction to a similar treatment

  • Allergic to aspirin, salicylic acid, onion and/or apple extract
