Over the years many factors can begin to affect our skin including sun exposure, acne and the normal aging process. The effects can cause the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and brown spots to appear on our bodies. With chemical peels, you can effectively diminish the appearance of these skin concerns and experience a brighter, healthier glow.
At Metamorphosis Med Spa in Orlando, FL we offer chemical peels help you enhance the tone and the texture of your skin, revealing a smoother and more youthful appearing complexion.
What are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel is a procedure that uses an acid solution to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, scarring on your skin and improve common skin conditions. With this treatment, your upper dermal layers are exfoliated to remove dead cells, while a new, fresh layer is exposed. The process promotes new cell growth, resulting in a healthy glow. Chemical peels are effective for treating mild to severe skin conditions including fine lines and wrinkles, acne, acne scarring, and melasma. Areas that can be treated include the face, neck, chest, back, and full body. Since everyone’s skin is different and as such each individual will present with different goals in mind, chemical peels have been formulated in a variation of light, medium and deep in order to meet every individuals’ aesthetic goals.
If you are experiencing acne from high bacteria levels or from hormonal skin, chemical peels are an excellent way to correct these conditions. With over 10 different formulations, our health care providers will customize a peel to effectively treat your skin. Chemical Peels are one of the most effective and affordable ways to turn back the hands of time.

What is the procedure like in Orlando?
At the start of the procedure, one of our highly trained estheticians will begin by first cleansing the skin. A chemical solution will then be applied to the targeted area and left on for a few minutes, depending on the type of peel the individual is receiving. The chemical peel will then be washed off and the skin neutralized. Over the course of the next few days patients will begin to notice the skin peeling, revealing a new healthy and brighter layer underneath. Typically, patients experience peeling approximately 2 days after the procedure, which can last 2-5 days.
Post-treatment, the treated skin tends to be temporarily more sensitive to the sun. For this reason, we recommended for patients to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily and limit the time spent outdoors. In addition, the treated skin may appear red in color. This is a common side effect and should subside naturally as the skin begins to heal itself. These peels can be repeated every 3-6 weeks depending on the peel that is best for you. Chemical peels can be used on all Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV.
