What Are Skin Peels?

Skin peels help your complexion look beautiful and refreshed. If you experience wrinkles, fine lines, smile lines, or acne scars, JPO Aesthetics offers different types of skin peels to deeply exfoliate the skin and remove damaged skin layers. They typically come in three different variations, including light, medium, and deep. At your consultation, we can select the best skin peel based on your concerns and your skin's condition. Please schedule an appointment at JPO Aesthetics in Palm Springs, CA with Dr. Jeff Olson.

What to expect with skin peels

During your appointment at JPO Aesthetics, we will ask you to relax in a comfortable treatment chair. Next, we gently cleanse the skin and apply the personalized solution to your face and/or neck. We will brush the solution onto the skin and let it sit for a specific amount of time, which Dr. Olson will discuss during your consultation. Finally, we clean the peel off your face and use a neutralizing agent. Following the procedure, patients should wear sun protection, avoid excess sun exposure, and expect the top layer of skin to slough off. Peeling will occur, but you should do your best to avoid picking at it because you may damage your delicate new skin.

Skin Peels FAQ

How much does a skin peel cost?
Dr. Olson or a member of his team will talk about your costs during your consultation once they have come up with your custom treatment plan. Costs for a skin peel can vary based on the level you choose. JPO Aesthetics accepts several payment methods, and there are often specials on treatments like skin peels. You may also consider buying a package of several skin peel treatments.

What level should I choose for my skin peel?
Which level of skin peel is best for you will depend on your specific skin needs and cosmetic goals. During your consultation with Dr. Olson, he will help you choose which skin peel is best for your skin. A few factors you may want to consider are your general health, your skin type, the depth of your skin concerns, the time you can commit to recovery, and what concerns you have about the appearance of your skin. For your first peel, it's better to select a light skin peel and decide how you like the results. From there, you and Dr. Olson can alter your plan to decide the best type of peel for your skin.

Should I get a skin peel or dermabrasion treatment?
Skin peels and dermabrasion are both facial treatments that correct surface irregularities to give your skin a smoother appearance. The major difference is that dermabrasion requires surgical tools (a shaving instrument or rotating brush ) to clear away the surface skin layer through a careful exfoliating process. A skin peel applies a caustic solution to your skin to dissolve dead and damaged skin cells. During your initial consultation, Dr. Olson will explain the pros and cons of both options and help you choose whether a skin peel or dermabrasion best fits your needs and goals.

Will my face hurt after a skin peel?
Depending on the chemicals used, you might feel some discomfort while it is actively treating your skin. If you have a light peel, you will probably notice some discomfort, but this can be alleviated with a small fan. Medium and deep peels are good for deeper damage and longer-lasting results; however, they usually cause greater discomfort. Numbing cream, medications, and soothing ointments may be used to minimize your discomfort during the treatment. Dr. Olson or a member of his team will give you tips on skin care after your skin peel to help your skin heal.

Can I combine a skin peel with other treatments?
For even greater improvements to your skin, you may combine a skin peel with another skin treatment at JPO Aesthetics. In your consultation, be open with Dr. Olson when describing your skin and cosmetic problems so he can create a personalized treatment plan to best address your goals. Your plan might include adding injectable wrinkle treatments (like BOTOX® or JUVÉDERM®) along with your skin peel to refresh your entire face.
