Chemical Peels

How it Works

At Aloha Med Spa, we offer a variety of chemical peels. After a thorough skin consultation, medical history review, and discussion of patient expectations and contraindications, we develop a treatment plan based on your needs.

What to Expect

  • The peel procedure will take 20-60mins depending on the time the peel stays on the skin before neutralizing, the number of layers needed, or client comfort level.
  • The peel is formulated to penetrate deeply into the epidermal layers, triggering cell turnover with minimal exfoliation.
  • Individual results vary – you may or may not peel, depending on the quantity of peel used and the time the peel is on the skin.
  • Skin may appear slightly flushed for the first 24-48 hours post procedure with the possibility of light flaking or peeling at approximately days 3 to 5.
  • NOTE: The skin does not need to physically peel in order to experience the benefits of a chemical peel- everyone’s experience will be unique and different.
  • For best results, it is advised to avoid sun exposure and the following products & procedures at least 1 week prior your treatment: 
  • Electrolysis 
  • Waxing 
  • Depilatory creams 
  • Laser hair removal 
  • Any exfoliating products 
  • Any products that may be drying or irritating, including products containing salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy acids, vitamin c, hydroquinone, retinoids, and prescription medications. 
  • Shaving of the area to be treated

For two days post procedure: 

  • Stay cool! Heating internally can cause hyperpigmentation. 
  • Do not put treated area directly into a hot shower spray. 
  • Do not use hot tubs, steam rooms or saunas. 
  • Do not go swimming. 
  • Do not participate in activities that would cause excessive perspiration. 
  • Do not use loofahs or other means of exfoliation. 
  • Do not direct a hair dryer onto the treated area. Do not apply ice or ice water to the treated area. 

General guidelines: 

  • After receiving a chemical peel, the skin may look and feel like a mild windburn for the next 2 or 3 days. After 48 hours, a slight flaking may occur for 3 to 5 days which can easily be controlled with moisturizers. 
  • It is recommended that makeup not be applied the day of treatment, as it is ideal to allow the skin to stabilize and rest overnight. 
  • To minimize side effects and maximize results, use the post procedure solution for 3 to 5 days or until flaking has resolved. 
  • Moisturizer should be applied at least twice a day but can be applied more frequently for hydration and to decrease the appearance of flaking. 
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat. An SPF of at least 30 must be used daily. 
  • Do not go to a tanning bed for at least two weeks post procedure. This practice should be discontinued due to increased risk of skin cancer and signs of aging. 
  • Do not pick or pull on any loosening skin. This could potentially cause hyperpigmentation.
