Chemical Peel Chicago
What if you could peel away signs of aging, sun damage, acne, scarring, and uneven skin tone? Well, now you can! At ElleHomme Med Spa in Chicago, IL we offer a treatment that can work for you: Chemical Peels. Chemical Peels can reduce the appearance of blemishes on you face; removing the surface layer and revealing a smoother, fresh new layer underneath.
What are Chemical Peels in Chicago?
Chemical Peels are a technique that uses a variety of chemical solutions to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin, causing it to eventually peel off and reveal a brighter, toned complexion. A Chemical Peel is effective in improving the tone and texture of the skin by treating an array of skin concerns including blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Benefits include stimulating collagen production and an improved look and feel of the skin. Although commonly used on the face, chemical peels may also be applied to the neck as well as the hands.
Due to the chemicals that are used in the procedure, a Chemical Peel is not recommended for individuals who exhibit cuts or broken skin, sunburns, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis or rosacea. We recommend women who are nursing or pregnant to postpone treatment. Individuals who take Accutane should suspend medication six months prior to treatment. It is also recommended for patients to refrain from using acid-based products, skin lightening agents or products that contain ascorbic acid at least 48 hours prior to treatment.

What are the benefits?

- Due to the removal of dead skin cells from the outer surface of the skin, the skin becomes more receptive to skin care products allowing the products to deliver maximum effectiveness
How do chemical peels work in Chicago?
Our patients receive a Chemical Peel treatment by one of our licensed medical professionals. The treatment begins by first cleansing the face of any oils or makeup. Once the skin is prepped, the chemicals will then be applied. The chemicals that are used include: glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or carbolic acid, depending on the type of Chemical Peel received. The length of time the chemical stays on the skin will also depend on the type of peel. These chemicals will begin to penetrate the surface layer; while also, being abrasive enough to slough away the outer layer.
After the chemicals are removed, a neutralizing agent will then be applied to the skin, which will halt the process and cool the face. Over the course of a few days, the surface layer begins to peel as the tone and texture improve and production of collagen is stimulated. The results reveal a new healthy, glowing layer underneath.
What is recovery like in Chicago?
As the outer layer of the skin peels off, patients may experience:
- Mild Irritation
These symptoms should subside, revealing the new skin, within a few weeks, depending on the type of Chemical Peel received. Post-treatment, the new skin will be temporarily sensitive to sun exposure. For this reason, we recommend that our patients limit the time spent under the sun and protect their skin with a broad-spectrum sun block.
What are the results?
When the skin is well taken care of post-treatment, for example daily applications of sun block, the results are long-lasting. Depending on the type of peel received, results can last ranging from a couple months to years. Multiple treatments, with ample healing time in between, may be recommended to achieve optimal results.
At ElleHomme Med Spa, our staff will make sure that our clients get the proper treatments that they require. We offer Chemical Peels for our clients who want a natural, nonsurgical alternative to reduce the appearance of blemishes.
