Chemical Peels Beverly Hills

Chemical Peels exfoliate the skin using a chemical solution of varying strengths to improve texture, tone, and signs of aging. They remove the outermost layers of the skin to reveal new, smooth, more-youthful skin underneath. Peels can reduce acne, scarring, wrinkles, and various forms of skin discoloration.

Treatments are entirely customizable, with three distinct depths (light-deep) to cater to each patient’s cosmetic goals and concerns. Chemical Peels are an excellent option for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance without surgical intervention or significant downtime.


What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical Peels involve applying a chemical solution to the skin, which removes and exfoliates the top layers, resulting in improved skin appearance. Patients can choose from three different types of Chemical Peels, based on their goals. The number of sessions necessary for optimal results varies depending on the selected peel.

  • Light Chemical Peel: This superficial chemical peel removes the outermost layer of skin to improve acne, fine wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. Results initially last 1-2 months and up to 6 months with consistent treatment.
  • Medium Chemical Peel: This chemical peel removes the outermost skin layers and the middle layer’s upper portion. Ideal for reducing acne scars, deeper wrinkles, and uneven skin tones. Results can last 2-4 months at the beginning and up to 6 months after repeated treatments.
  • Deep Chemical Peel: The deep chemical peel yields the most drastic results, penetrating deeper skin cells and improving the appearance of deeper wrinkles, scars, freckles, and age spots. A single treatment can produce results that endure for up to ten years.

The PowerPeel combats the signs of aging, acne, scars, spots, fine lines, and wrinkles while restoring luminosity and hydration. These peels can enhance overall skin health. Active ingredients include hydroquinone 8%, retinoic acid, azelaic acid, kojic acid, arbutin, phytic acid, and ascorbic acid.

Chemical Peel Treatment Options

At Spa26, we offer three specific peel treatments:

  • Purity Peel: This medium complexion peel clears breakouts and discoloration associated with acne. The peel formula features skin-clearing boosters of benzoyl peroxide, kojic acid, and hydrocortisone.
  • Pure Peel Plus: A transformative medium peel that combats the signs of aging and discoloration, including melasma. Boosters of hydroquinone and kojic acid produce a more even skin tone. Patients may combine the Purity Peel and the Pure Peel Plus with dermal fillers and neuromodulators to enhance results.
  • PowerPeel: The PowerPeel is considered the grand slam of all medical-grade peels and does not require any anesthesia. It prevents and eliminates discoloration, such as post-inflammatory pigmentation, freckles, age spots, and melasma. 

Chemical Peel Benefits

Chemical Peels diminish the signs of aging and minor imperfections by removing damaged layers of skin to reveal a smoother, glowing appearance. Peels are highly customizable to serve each patient’s specific skin concerns. Light and medium peels are long-lasting and make a great addition to any skincare routine.

How Long Will Results Last?

How Chemical Peel Works

A chemical peel treatment is relatively simple and takes place in-office. Preparation and aftercare may differ slightly depending on the strength of the peel. Before treatment, your provider will clean the area and provide proper eye protection to ensure optimal safety and effectiveness. 

There are a few conditions the practitioner may request the patient follow before the procedure to aid with the healing process and reduce side effects.

Before & Preparation

  • Consult a provider to determine which peel works best for you and what to expect during the procedure.
  • Your provider may instruct you to use a retinoid cream or bleaching agent the weeks before treatment to assist with healing and reduce side effects.
  • You may need to take antiviral medication before treatment.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure to reduce the risk of abnormal pigmentation.
  • Avoid certain types of hair removal (waxing, laser) and cosmetic treatments a week before treatment.
  • Avoid exfoliating the treatment area for at least a week before treatment.
  • Stop the use of anti-aging or anti-acne medications.

  • Your practitioner will use a wash or neutralizing solution to remove the peel from the treatment area.

  • A neutralizing solution is not required.
  • A stinging, burning sensation is expected following the session and may last up to 20 minutes.

    • A medium peel can result in swelling and stinging in the treatment area.
    • A deep peel will be accompanied by burning and throbbing. The patient can expect to see new skin develop about two weeks post-op, with redness lasting up to a few months.

    Chemical Peel Reviews

    “I’ve had great experiences with Dr. Nazarian. About 2 years ago, she recommended a TCA chemical peel and I got tremendous results. I recently had Botox and fillers and they look amazing. I also recommend the skincare line that she sells in her office (I’ve tried them all). I totally trust her and will be back!!!”

    Chemical Peel FAQs

    Is a chemical peel good for your skin?

    A chemical peel exfoliates and improves the texture and uniformity of your skin tone and fights fine lines and acne. This procedure treats a range of skin afflictions and reveals glowing, healed skin underneath.

    How long does a chemical peel last?

    A light chemical peel can last 1-2 months, while the medium peel lasts up to 2-4 months. A deep peel can last up to 10 years, especially if the client takes care to protect their skin from sun damage.

    Can you see results after 1 peel?

    Improvement in skin texture and tone are noticeable after one treatment. It takes about two weeks for the skin to heal completely after a deep peel, whereas it will take approximately five days for a medium peel to heal.

    What are the side effects of chemical peeling?

    Side effects can include irritation, redness, skin pigmentation, and scarring. The more severe side effects include infection, heart, liver, and kidney damage.

    Will a chemical peel remove blackheads?

    A chemical peel can combat skin imperfections, including fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, acne, and scarring. It is an effective tool to rid the face of blackheads and other forms of acne.

    Can I wear makeup after a chemical peel?

    Yes, but the timeline depends on which peel you receive. You can wear makeup as soon as the next day with a light peel, while medium peels require a clean face for five days during the healing process. Wait two weeks before applying makeup after a deep peel.
