What are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are topical treatments that remove the top layer of the skin to shed off dead skin cells, debris, oil, and other substances. These solutions may be used as part of your skincare regimen or serve as an acne treatment depending on the potency.
- Natural-looking results
- Minimal risks
- Non-invasive treatment
A chemical peel is a treatment that uses a solution containing chemicals to peel away the top layers of your skin. Skin renewal occurs as it rapidly replaces new, fresh cells. The chemical solution can smoothen and improve your skin texture, allowing the treatment to incorporate several corrective strategies.
Typically, chemical peels are used to treat skin concerns on the face and neck. However, chemical peels can also safely and effectively improve the appearance and texture of skin on many other body areas.
How Do Chemical Peels Work?
During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and peel off old, rough skin. New skin regenerates and is usually smoother and less wrinkled than old skin. The procedure may cause some stinging, redness, irritation, and crusting. These signs and symptoms lessen as the new skin begins to take form.
What Chemical Peels Can Do
As chemical peels shed off the top layer of the skin, it also removes damaged skin and other skin concerns you may have. Our SkinCeuticals peel may improve your skin texture, help to maintain firm skin, and revitalize sensitive skin while unclogging your pores. We customize peels for each client using SkinCeuticals.
Chemical peel treatment may diminish the appearance of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne scars
- Damaged skin
- Sun damage
- Aging skin
- Age spots
- Freckles, and other skin concerns
Removing these skin concerns, along with dead skin cells, reveals a smoother and more vibrant skin appearance. Medical-grade chemical peels may even remove lesions or growth from skin cancer with their potency.
Skin Health Medi-Spa offers mild to moderate chemical peels suitable for any skin type. These treatment options may serve as part of your skincare regimen or just acne treatment. We offer SkinCeuticals or customized treatments to cater to every customer’s unique idea of beauty. You may schedule a consultation for your chemical peel treatment today.

ZO Peel: Reveal Younger, Healthier Skin
At Skin Health Medi-Spa, we offer the innovative ZO Peel to go beyond surface exfoliation and truly transform your skin from within.
The ZO 3-Step Peel addresses multiple signs of aging – fine lines, blotches, dullness – through a combination of exfoliating acids and advanced ingredients like retinol and antioxidants.
- More even skin tone and texture
- Fewer age spots and discoloration
- A notable smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles
- An overall youthful glow and radiance
The ZO Peel is suitable for all skin types and tones. You may experience some mild peeling and discomfort after step 1, but steps 2 and 3 help mitigate this.
Other peels fade with time. But over multiple ZO Peel treatments, you’ll see long-lasting benefits as retinol continually boosts collagen and your skin’s ability to repair itself and stay healthy.
The ZO 3-Step Peel from Skin Health Medi-Spa harnesses the power of precisely formulated acids and potent retinol to gently exfoliate dead surface skin, stimulate collagen production and even out irregular pigmentation – giving you smoother, firmer, deeply replenished skin in just one hour treatment.
Here’s how it works:
Stage 1: A blend of 5% lactic acid, 17% salicylic acid and 10% TCA is applied to dissolve the bonds that hold dead skin cells together. As these worn, dull surface layers are lifted away, they reveal fresher, healthier skin cells underneath – primed and ready for renewal.
Stage 2: A 6% retinol cream – containing two powerful antioxidants and beta-glycan – is absorbed deeply. Retinol stimulates collagen regeneration within the dermis, firms the appearance of skin, minimizes the look of fine lines and pores, and helps even out age spots and hyperpigmentation issues.
Stage 3: Finally, a special calming cream rich in ceramides, amino acids and antioxidants is applied. It soothes any irritation from the peel, locks in moisture, speeds healing and protects your newly revealed, freshened complexion.
Most patients see results for acne scarring, sun damage, dullness and enlarged pores after just one treatment. But for the very best outcome, a series of 3 peels spaced 4-6 weeks apart works wonders. After 3 treatments, patients often report their skin looks 5 to 10 years younger!
If you’re ready to bid farewell to that tired, drawn complexion you’ve become all too familiar with and finally reveal your inner radiance, book a ZO 3-Step Peel consultation today with our experienced skin therapists at Skin Health Medi Spa.
We’ll recommend the perfect peel strength for you and guide you through the process – helping you achieve beautifully refreshed, renewed skin you love to show the world.
What are you waiting for? It’s time to revel in your natural glow.
