Each peel is custom-tailored to the specific individual and can dramatically improve the complexion, taking years off of the appearance.

Glycolic Acid Peel
Glycolic acid is part of the alpha hydroxyl family of ingredients. This all natural peel is derived from fruit acids and can be customized in different strengths, meeting a variety of needs. The glycolic acid peel works by softening the old, rough skin caked on the surface of the tissue. As this top layer is eliminated, fresh, youthful tissue is exposed. The glycolic acid peel can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as reduce acne and superficial scarring. There is little to no downtime required after a glycolic acid peel, and most patients are back to work the same afternoon. However, slight irritation or redness is not uncommon. These side effects should quickly fade.

Chemical Peel FAQ
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is the process of placing a specific chemical product on the face for a temporary amount of time before removing. The peel will remove the top layer of damaged tissue, with dirt and dry skin sloughing away. Soft, fresh, new tissue will then take its place. A properly applied chemical peel will reduce wrinkles, eliminate discoloration, and improve acne. While chemical peels can be performed at home with over-the-counter products, the most effective peels are only available from a cosmetic surgeon or trusted MedSpa.
What are my chemical peel options from Allegro MedSpa?
Allegro MedSpa brings clients the widest variety of safe and effective peels. The right chemical peel will depend on your skin’s needs. Our peels include gentle options, such as the glycolic acid peels, as well as stronger chemical peels, like the TCA peels, designed for maximum results for more serious needs. A professional clinical at Allegro MedSpa will create a treatment plan around your individual needs.
How long will a chemical peel take?
The length of each chemical peel process will depend on the specific product and the extent of correction desired. In many cases, the peel will take an hour or less.
When can I return to work after getting a facial peel?
The recovery time from your chemical peel will depend on the specific product used. A light, superficial peel may require little to no downtime, such as the glycolic peel or the Jessner peel. Stronger peels, like the TCA peel, will require one to two weeks for full healing.
What are the risks of chemical peels?
Today’s chemical peels are safer and more easily tolerated than ever before. However, they should only be applied by an experienced aesthetic professional. Side effects can include mild swelling, redness, irritation, and discomfort. Pateints must remember to avoid sun exposure after their peel, as the healing skin is extremely sensitive. More serious complications are rare, but the professionals at Allegro MedSpa will carefully explain the potential for chemical peel side-effects during your consultation.
