Safer Chemical Peels Q & A

What are safer chemical peels?

Chemical peels are designed to lighten pigmentation, improve skin texture and tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Chemical peels use an acidic solution to remove one or more layers of your skin. These peels can be harsh and leave your skin red and exposed for two or more weeks while your facial cells regenerate. But the good news is that you don’t have to undergo painful treatments and prolonged healing times to reach your beauty goals.

At KSW Medical Aesthetics, Kim Suvak Warden, NP, offers safer chemical peels made with fruit acid enzymes, malic & glycolic acids, nourishing vitamins and restorative plant-based ingredients to smooth and soften fine lines, improve tone and texture, and prevent breakouts. 

The peels offered at KSW Medical Aesthetics are proven effective, while supporting health, and avoiding detrimental, unregulated ingredients commonly found in other spa-grade peels. Peels can be offered with or without a regenerative dermaplaning procedure.

Unlike some other chemical peels, a regenerative dermaplaning and safer peel do not require downtime and can be repeated as often as monthly to reveal the younger, fresher skin underneath. 

What types of peels are offered?

What can I expect during a safer chemical peel?

Your Nurse Practitioner conducts your safer peel at the office or comfort of your own home by appointment. After cleansing and prepping your skin, she may use a special tool to gently and methodically remove the very top layer of your skin. This painless procedure takes 30 minutes. Next, she’ll apply the enzyme peel in a mask. Some tingling and minor redness are expected initially. 

After your peel, your Nurse Practitioner applies a soothing lotion and mineral-based sun protection. Your skin may be a bit pink following your peel, but these side effects should disappear well within a few days. 

Generally, there’s no downtime needed after your treatment. However, you should take some extra caution in the sun for the next week or so to protect your newly exfoliated glowing skin.

Despite some mild redness, you should see an immediate improvement in the look of your skin after your peel.


What are the benefits of a safer chemical peel?

The safer peel at KSW Medical Aesthetics is a simple and safe treatment that can immediately improve the look and health of your skin. By gently removing the top layer of your skin, your Nurse Practitioner reveals the fresh, glowing, more youthful skin underneath. 

And because it’s gentle and ingredients are tested for both safety AND efficacy, it’s great for most skin types and beauty concerns.

You may want to consider the safer peel to help:

  • Smooth out lines and wrinkles, improving texture
  • Reduce the appearance of sunspots, freckles, and discoloration
  • Improve acne scars
  • Remove dry, dull skin 
  • Brighten and tighten complexion

The peel may also improve the effectiveness of your skin-care products and cosmetics by allowing better penetration and a smoother application to your skin. KSW Medical Aesthetics specializes in clean, safer beauty and can provide you with a skin-care regimen that’s safe and effective, meeting your specific needs and goals.
