Chemical Peels Q&A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are resurfacing skin treatments that use acidic solutions to strip the top layers of dead skin from your face, neck, and other areas. At Aesthetic Envy and Wellness, Kim helps you decide on a peel equipped to meet the needs of your skin no matter how much improvement it needs. She performs:

Superficial peels

Superficial peels are the gentlest of the three options and typically use mild acids, like alpha-hydroxy acid. 

Medium peels

Medium-depth peels are a little stronger than superficial peels and offer longer-lasting results. They remove upper layers of skin cells using trichloroacetic or glycolic acid. 

Deep peels

Deep peels are strong enough that you can only get them once in a lifetime. For intense results, deep peels use phenol or trichloroacetic acid. 

Bio-stimulating peels

Aesthetic Envy is proud to be one of the first in Las Vegas to offer the PRX-T33 bio-stimulatory facial peel. This peel uses hydrogen peroxide to penetrate deep into the dermis and help fade discoloration, scarring, and loose skin. Unlike traditional chemical peels, there is little to no peeling associated. 

What are the benefits of chemical peels?

Chemical peels of any depth offer skin smoothing effects and renewal. Kim makes suggestions for chemical peels based on the needs of your skin and the features you want to minimize. A chemical peel at Aesthetic Envy and Wellness can reduce or erase:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation and spots
  • Melasma
  • Sun damage
  • Redness

A deep peel eliminates features like these in one go. If you opt for gentler options like superficial or medium peels, you can talk to Kim about getting them regularly for skin maintenance. You can safely get medium peels every once in a while according to your skin’s needs, or you can get superficial peels as often as every two to five weeks. 

Am I a good candidate for a chemical peel?

Just like all other treatments available at Aesthetic Envy and Wellness, chemical peels may or may not be the best option for you. You should visit for a consultation initially to discuss the treatment with Kim and compare it to other available procedures. 

Kim reviews your medical history and examines your skin before recommending a chemical peel. You might be a candidate for the chemical peel of your choice at Aesthetic Envy and Wellness if you:

  • Have mild-to-moderate skin concerns
  • Don’t scar easily
  • Don’t get cold sores
  • Have a realistic idea of the results
  • Have not used exfoliants for at least a week
  • Haven’t taken isotretinoin in at least six months

Kim teaches you how you can care for your skin after a peel or between peels to calm any irritation and keep your skin looking its best.
