Peel and reveal beautiful skin
Exfoliate the skin on your face, neck, décolletage, and hands with a chemical peel to reveal a radiant and healthy glow! Chemical Peels near St. Cloud gently remove the superficial layers of the skin. As a result, chemical peels promote the growth of a new healthy top skin layer and can improve problems like hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture and skin impurities.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a Chemical Peel treatment take?
Most treatments take between 30 and 45 minutes, however the length of the treatment can vary depending on the area being treated.
What products or procedures should I avoid before a chemical peel?
- One week before the peel avoid waxing, electrolysis, depilatory creams, and laser hair removal.
- Two to three days before the peel discontinue using any prescription topicals such as Retin-A, Differin or Tazorac, as well as any products containing retinol, alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA), beta hydroxyl acids (BHA) or benzoyl peroxide.
- Patients who have had any medical cosmetic facial treatments or procedures such as laser treatments, cosmetic fillers or other surgical procedures to the treated area should wait until skin sensitivity has completely resolved before receiving a peel.
When can I see the results from my Chemical Peel?
Improvements can be seen five to seven days after the first treatment, however multiple treatments may be recommended for optimal results.
Are there any side effects or downtime associated Chemical Peels?
Slight redness, peeling or flaking of the skin can occur but will subside within a few days, therefore “social downtime” may be recommended.
Will I have any visible peeling after my peel?
The success of the peel should not be judged by the amount of peeling, but by the end results that the peel will produce. The amount of peeling may vary depending on individual skin condition at the time of the peel or the depth of the peel. Regardless of the degree of peeling, the skin is still sloughing off at an accelerated rate, resulting in the improvement of skin tone and texture and an improvement of fine lines and uneven pigmentation.
Are there any restrictions of activities after a chemical peel?
Normal activities may be resumed immediately after the peel. We recommend avoiding strenuous exercise and heavy sweating for the first day or two after the peel. It is advisable to keep sun exposure to a minimum after a chemical peel. SPF is required daily.
