What are chemical peels?
Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, hands, and neck. They’re used to improve the appearance or feel of the skin. During this procedure, chemical solutions will be applied to the area being treated, which causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Once this happens, the new skin underneath is often smoother, appears less wrinkled, and may have less damage.
There are several reasons people may get chemical peels. They may be trying to treat a variety of things, including:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone or redness
How do you prepare for a chemical peel?
Before your procedure, you’ll first have a consultation with the skin care specialist. During this visit, they’ll help you determine what the best treatment option is for you. They’ll let you know the details about the specific peel you’ll be getting, and they’ll ask about anything that could interfere with the peel. This may include whether you’ve taken acne medication, and information about whether you scar easily.
Before a chemical peel, you must:
- Not use any type of retinol or retin-A topical medication for at least 48 hours
- Inform your skin care specialist about any medications you take
- Not have been on Accutane for at least six months
- Your doctor may also recommend that you:
- Take an antiviral medication if you have a history of fever blisters or cold sores to prevent a breakout around the mouth
- Use special lotions to improve treatment, like glycolic acid lotion
- Use a retinoid cream to prevent skin darkening
- Stop waxing, epilating, or using depilatory hair removal products the week before the peel. You should also avoid hair bleaching.
- Stop using facial scrubs and exfoliants the week before the peel.
What is an acne facial?
If you are struggling with acne, your typical acne facial cleanser might not be cutting it. The acne facial is an alternative treatment designed to treat the root cause of acne with minimal side effects.
Acne facials focus primarily on extractions for blocked pores. The extraction process releases any excess build-up of oil and cleans out dirt that might be clogging up your pores. This can reduce the look and feel of acne and calm inflammation in your skin. For mild cases of acne, an esthetician at a salon can perform your acne facial. However, if you have severe acne, you may consider having this type of facial performed by a dermatologist.
What should I expect from an acne facial appointment?
An acne facial starts with a thorough facial cleansing and exfoliation. The esthetician or dermatologist will then do an extraction process for your clogged pores, which can be done with finger-applied pressure and a cotton ball on either side of the pore, or with tools. This is often followed by a mask or facial massage to calm the skin. Often, products such as salicylic and glycolic acids may be used to remove dead skin cells as part of the facial treatment. At the end of the facial, you may be offered product to use at home to treat acne between facials. There’s no expectation to make a purchase, of course – it’s totally up to you.

Radiofrequency consists of the application of high frequency electromagnetic waves on the skin that causes the controlled heating of the different layers of the dermis, which favors:
- The formation of new collagen.
- The lymphatic drainage.
- Circulation of the skin and subcutaneous tissue.
- Fibroblast migration
Depending on the frequency used, different layers of the dermis can be heated. It is a painless procedure used to treat cellulite and sagging skin anywhere in the body.
The immediate effect of radiofrequency application is collagen retraction, to, after successive sessions, achieve the restructuring of deep collagen and the formation of new fibers that replace those already aged, providing greater elasticity to tissues and obtain smoother skin and, as a consequence, reduce wrinkles and epithelial sagging. The effects are usually achieved from the month of treatment.
