What is a Chemical Peel?
To provide the highest quality results from chemical peel treatments, Nirvana Med Spa provides you with multiple choices. Your individualized chemical peel with exfoliating solutions, such as glycolic, salicylic, trichloroacetic, and lactic acids, will reveal healthier, smoother skin. At our Little Rock, AR office, we offer chemical peel treatments that help improve skin issues, such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, dry patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more. While using an individualized chemical peel on your skin, it can dissolve dead and damaged skin cells, which causes the surface layer to peel off. When your skin heals and begins to repair and rejuvenate itself, you should notice a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel is a nonsurgical treatment that makes your complexion look luminous, and we can use it on the neck and face.
what kinds of Chemical Peels are available?
To address our patients' skin concerns, we perform chemical peels in various levels, such as light, medium, and deep.
Light peels: You can receive a light chemical peel during your lunch and go right back to your routine. This strength of peel will remove the top skin layer (the epidermis), giving your complexion a more radiant appearance and smoother texture. We usually recommend that you schedule a light chemical peel around once a month for the best glowing results.
Medium-depth peels: This type of chemical peel goes further into the skin, and you'll generally prefer to have this level of facial rejuvenation treatment during a long weekend. You may also want to prepare yourself for more discomfort during the appointment and for about an hour afterward. Medium-depth peels work best for patients who have significant damage to their skin, such as deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues.
Deep peels: The strongest of the three levels is a deep peel treatment, and it will require the lengthiest recovery time. This is an aggressive procedure that may leave your face swollen, itchy, and peeling for a few weeks. Patients who receive a deep peel usually have age or dark spots, sun damage, significant acne scars, or deep-seated scars. Since this strength of peel is typically uncomfortable for most patients, we can provide you with mild anesthesia before your procedure.
What are the Benefits of a Chemical Peel?
Over-the-counter scrubs and at-home treatments can only do so much for your skin. A chemical peel can provide a deeper exfoliation to achieve a refreshed and youthful-looking complexion. Nirvana Med Spa understands that not every patient is the same, which is why we offer different kinds of chemical peels to target specific concerns. Appointments with our team are always conducted in a safe, relaxing environment, and we work hard to ensure your comfort throughout your entire experience.

what is a chemical peel good for?
Seeking the recommendations of a cosmetic professional is the first step in the journey to smooth, healthy skin. Before selecting a chemical peel that works best for you, a team member at Nirvana Med Spa will evaluate your skin during a consultation at our Little Rock, AR office. Chemical peel candidates, both women and men, will have visible concerns on their skin, such as rough patches, acne scars, discoloration, flaky skin, sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and much more. We will suggest varying types of peels to match your needs.
What to expect during a chemical peel
During your appointment at Nirvana Med Spa, we will ask you to lie in a relaxed position while we administer your treatment. We will make sure your skin is cleansed before applying the customized peel to your face and/or neck. Next, the solution is massaged onto your skin and allowed to sit for a specific amount. At your consultation, we will discuss your goals and determine how long the solution should remain on your skin. Then, we will wash the peel off your skin and put on a neutralizing agent. You may want to bring sunscreen and a hat to wear outside after the peel to avoid excess sun exposure.
how long is recovery after a chemical peel?
Depending on the type of the chemical peel you receive, you can expect your skin to peel and itch from a few days to a couple of weeks. A member of our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions for your skin. Please remember that no matter how much your skin itches throughout the recovery, you should refrain from pulling the skin off. You could create scarring to your delicate skin! While your skin is peeling, you should try to avoid sun exposure because it could also hurt your new skin.
Chemical Peel FAqs
How much does a chemical peel cost?
Dr. Hashmi will discuss your costs during your consultation after he has made your personalized treatment plan. Costs for a chemical peel can vary depending on the formula you get. Nirvana Med Spa takes several payments methods, and there are often specials on skin treatments like chemical peels. Buying a package with several chemical peel treatments can also help you save money.
What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
The best chemical peel for you will depend on your unique skin issues and aesthetic goals. In your initial consultation with Dr. Hashmi, he will help you select which peel is right for your skin. Some factors you might want to consider are your overall health, your skin type, the depth of your skin concerns, the time you can commit to recovery, and what you want the peel to accomplish. Initially, it is better to select a lighter peel and see how you like the results. From there, you and Dr. Hashmi can alter your plan to decide the best type of peel for your skin.
Should I get a chemical peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Dermabrasion and chemical peels are both facial treatments that treat surface irregularities to make your skin a rejuvenated appearance. The main difference is that dermabrasion uses surgical tools (a shaving instrument or rotating brush ) to clear away the top layer of skin through a careful exfoliating process. A chemical peel uses a caustic solution that is applied to your skin to dissolve damaged skin cells. During your consultation, Dr. Hashmi will discuss the pros and cons of each treatment and help you decide whether a chemical peel or dermabrasion is better to achieve your needs and goals.
Will my face hurt after a chemical peel?
Depending on the chemicals used, you might have some discomfort when it is on your skin. If you get a lighter peel, you will probably feel a little discomfort; however, it can be alleviated with the use of a small fan. Deep or medium peels are good for deeper skin problems and offer results that last a long time, but they can be more uncomfortable. Topical anesthetics, medications, and soothing ointments can be applied to minimize your discomfort during the treatment. Dr. Hashmi or a member of his team will discuss skin care after your chemical peel to help your skin heal.
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 Nirvana Med Spa. During your initial consultation, be open with Dr. Hashmi about your skin problems so he can create a unique treatment plan to best address your goals. This may include adding an injectable treatment for wrinkles (such as BOTOX® or JUVÉDERM® ) plus a chemical peel to refresh your entire appearance.
