What are Chemical Peels?

A chemical peel is a uniquely customized skincare formula that encourages the uppermost layers of your skin to shed, revealing smoother, softer, and healthier skin underneath. The uppermost layers of the skin (epidermis) reflect months of accumulated damage because of excessive sun exposure, pollutants, acne breakouts, and dead skin cells. Chemical peels slough away the dead skin cells and old skin tissues, making your skin look vibrant. They can be applied to the face, neck, or hands to revitalize the complexion.

Benefits of Chemical Peels:

  • Improve overall skin texture and complexion
  • Make the skin look smooth and youthful
  • Minimize the risk of acne breakouts
  • Address a wide range of cosmetic concerns
  • Personalized according to your specific skin type
  • No harsh side effects or complications
  • No post-treatment downtime or recovery period
  • Concludes within an hour

Your Chemical Peel Options

Epionce Peel

The Epionce Peel is a medical-grade, physician-strength chemical peel formulation that unleashes the true potential of your skin. It’s made entirely from botanical ingredients that reveal healthier skin tissues without causing extensive skin damage. You don’t have to worry about tomato-red skin or severe inflammation to enjoy stunning anti-aging effects. The Epionce Peel includes multifactorial antioxidants, cholesterol, ceramide, and fatty acids that improve the overall health of your skin without causing unnecessary dryness.

VI Peel

The VI Peel is a medium-level chemical peel suitable for all skin types and concerns. Generally speaking, the effectiveness of a chemical peel is directly proportional to the severity of the side effects and downtime. Superficial peels produce mild results and don’t involve any downtime, but deeper peels produce more significant results and involve downtime. The VI Peel is a personalized collection of chemical peels that provide the results of deep peels without days or weeks of downtime — they’re gentle yet effective.

Your Chemical Peel Experience

The chemical peel in Portland process is personalized according to your unique skin type and goals. Our cosmetic providers will analyze your skin type, discuss your goals, and select the ideal chemical peels. The cosmetic provider will apply a layer of numbing cream on your skin to ensure optimal comfort, following which the peel formula is gradually layered onto your skin. You might feel a mild tingling or stinging sensation, but it’s perfectly tolerable. Next, the cosmetic provider will apply a soothing gel to reduce irritation.

What Happens After Chemical Peels?

You can return home immediately after the chemical peel session. You must apply SPF 50+ sunscreen and avoid direct sunlight during the healing process. We will also provide a post-peel kit with moisturizers that expedite the peeling process and minimize discomfort. Your skin will look flushed for a few days, and you may experience mild peeling after a few days, but there are no harsh side effects. You must avoid strenuous workouts until the peeling is complete.
