What are Chemical Peels?

Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics is pleased to offer multiple skin rejuvenation options for men and women in Cedarburg, WI. Triple board-certified physician Dr. Janice Alexander performs personalized chemical peel treatments (using salicylic, glycolic, lactic, or trichloroacetic acids) that will reveal smoother, healthier skin. Chemical peels slough away damaged, dead skin cells with a customized solution on the skin that causes the top layer to peel off. Our advanced chemical peel treatments can resolve skin irregularities, including wrinkles, scars, fine lines, rough patches, and hyperpigmentation. Patients can choose to further enhance their results with a skin booster, such as a hyaluronic acid filler, which adds volume and softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

What are the Benefits of Getting Chemical Peels?

Patients who get chemical peels at Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics Center love a variety of benefits that they get from this treatment, including:

  • Deep exfoliation that addresses acne, imbalances, and scarring
  • Smoothing out of wrinkles, fine lines, and other age- or damage-related skin concerns
  • Reduction of melasma, age spots, and other hyperpigmentation
  • Overall, a fresher- and smoother-feeling skin that boosts how you look and feel

What to Expect During Your Treatment

When you come to Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics, we will perform a skin consultation before we begin your chemical peel treatment. We will brush the solution onto the skin and allow it to set for a specific length of time. Then, we will clean the solution off your skin and apply a neutralizing agent. Your skin will peel and itch, from a few days to two or more weeks. As your skin recovers and starts to rejuvenate and repair itself, you should see a smoother, clearer complexion. It is important to protect your delicate skin from the sun as it heals, and be sure not to pick at the flaking skin. During your consultation, we will talk with you about adding a booster to further refresh your results, which may be done on the same day as your treatment or during a follow-up visit.

Chemical Peel FAQ

What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
The best chemical peel for you will depend on your unique skin issues and cosmetic goals. During your initial consultation with Dr. Alexander, she will help you choose which chemical peel is right for your skin. A few factors you might consider are your general health, your skin type, the depth of your skin concerns, how long you can spend in recovery, and what concerns you have about the appearance of your skin. For your first peel, it may be better to try a light chemical peel and see what you think of the results. After this, you and Dr. Alexander can adjust your plan to decide the best type of peel for you.

Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
For even greater improvements to your skin, you may combine a chemical peel with another skin treatment at Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics Center. In your consultation, be open with Dr. Alexander about your skin concerns so she can develop a comprehensive treatment plan that delivers your best results. This may include adding injectable wrinkle treatments (such as JUVÉDERM® or BOTOX®) along with your chemical peel to refresh your whole appearance.

Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Depending on the peel used, you might feel some discomfort during and shortly after your peel. If you get a lighter peel, you may notice a little discomfort, but it goes away quickly with the use of a small fan. Medium and deep peels are good for deeper damage and longer-lasting results; however, they usually cause greater discomfort. Numbing cream, skin medications, and soothing ointments can be used to minimize your discomfort during your chemical peel. Dr. Alexander or a team member will explain post-treatment skin care to extend your results.
