Frequently Asked Questions

How do chemical peels work?

A specialized chemical solution is applied to the skin for a designated period of time. The chemicals help to improve skin appearance and texture by gently removing the outer, damaged layers of skin. Chemical agents also stimulate the generation of new skin cells during the healing process. Chemical peels are available in different formulations and strengths to achieve specific results, depending on the patient’s individual needs.

What should I expect during the chemical peel procedure?
Medical grade chemical peels are performed on an outpatient basis at Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa in Phoenix. The length of the procedure will vary, depending on the depth of the peel. For most light to medium chemical peels, the solution is applied for 5 minutes or less, and anesthesia is not necessary. Most patients tolerate the procedure easily, reporting a mild stinging sensation. Advanced cooling methods are used to ensure maximum patient comfort.

What should I expect after the chemical peel procedure?
After the prescribed time, the chemicals will be neutralized, and a therapeutic moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied. With light chemical peels, your skin glows and appears beautiful right away. For medium peels, your skin may appear sunburned in the days following the procedure. Results may be maintained with at-home products, or monthly or yearly follow-up procedures, depending on the depth of your peel. You may experience swelling, redness, and peeling in the weeks after treatment. The results from deep chemical peels may last for many years.

What can a glycolic peel treat?

A glycolic peel is a light to medium chemical peel made from glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). AHAs are naturally occurring acids derived from certain plants and fruits. Glycolic peels can be used on a monthly basis to maintain beautiful, healthy-looking skin by removing damaged surface skin cells. For certain conditions, weekly or biweekly peels are advised. Light glycolic peels are simple and quick, with no lasting skin redness after treatment.

A stronger glycolic peel can also be used to treat specific skin conditions, such as facial wrinkles, age spots, and acne inflammation. In order to achieve the best results, a series of chemical peel treatments maybe recommended that gradually increase in strength. By building up the strength of the peel with each application, one can achieve the desired results without visible peeling and downtime. Suddenly Slimmer’s licensed estheticians will assess your condition and goals to design a personalized protocol best suited to your specific needs.

What can a salicylic peel treat?

A salicylic peel is made from salicylic acid, a beta hydroxyl acid (BHA), and is used to help treat acne. In addition to removing surface skin cells, salicylic acid helps decrease sebaceous oil secretions. Hence, salicylic acid peels cleanse clogged pores that contribute to acne breakouts. The pore-cleansing nature of salicylic acid peels make them an ideal choice for treating pimples, blackheads, and oily skin.

What can a TCA peel treat?

Made from trichloroacetic acid, TCA peels are stronger chemical peels designed to address a variety of skin conditions. With the ability to improve skin color, texture, and tone, TCA peels are commonly used to treat sun damage, facial wrinkling, skin lesions, acne, age spots, and uneven skin pigmentation. At PSD of NYC, we offer TCA peels in varying strengths, depending on your specific condition and goals. As an alternative, we offer sophisticated laser peels, which can address the same conditions treated by TCA peels, but in a very controlled and consistent manner. Suddenly Slimmer’s licensed medical estheticians will meet with you to design a personalize protocol best suited to your specific needs.

What can specialty peels treat?

Suddenly Slimmer’s medical esthetician uses certain specialty peels which combine various ingredients such as AHAs, resorcinol, and retinoic acids. There are several varieties of these peels intended to stimulate collagen production, reduce age spots and other pigmentation issues, treat inflammatory acne, and leave the skin looking more youthful and refreshed. They will choose the peel that is best for you.
