What are Chemical Peels?
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.
Variations of Chemical Peels
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.

Chemical Peel Ideal Candidates
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.
Chemical Peel Procedure Technique
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.
What to Expect with 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.
