Why you'll love it

The naturally-derived acids, antioxidants, and moisturizers in this peel do more than treat lines on the surface — they go deep into the layers of your skin to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin and remove damaged skin cells. After a few days, the dead skin dissolves to reveal new, smooth texture, more even tone, and an overall rejuvenated appearance.

  • Fine lines

    After cleansing the skin, your clinician will apply the peel. While your treatment will take about 45 minutes, you’ll need to leave the peel on for 4-6 hours after you leave. Then, skin turnover will begin about 3 days later. You should schedule your treatment when you’ll be able to take several hours to yourself and won’t have any major events for the next few days.

Common Questions

What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a solution of naturally-derived acids, antioxidants, and moisturizers, including trichloroacetic acid (TCA), phenol, salicylic acid, vitamin C, and tretinoin. These penetrate to varying skin depths to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, remove damaged skin cells, and treat wrinkles, dark spots, and more. After a few days, the dead skin dissolves to reveal new, smooth skin and a more even skin tone. 

What should I expect after treatment?
Your clinician will give you specific instructions following your peel, but here is a breakdown of what to expect.

Immediately after treatment: You will leave your appointment with the peel still on for the next 4-6 hours. You should keep this in mind when scheduling your treatment — choose a time when you’ll be able to take plenty of time for yourself. 

4-6 hours after treatment: You’ll wash off the peel using a mild cleanser and water. Be sure to do this at least an hour before you go to bed. 

2-5 days after treatment: Skin turnover begins. As the peel works to boost the production of new, rejuvenated skin, the dead skin will begin to gradually break down and peel away. Be sure to use moisturizer and SPF frequently throughout the recovery process.

6-7 days after treatment: The peeling will gradually ease. Once it stops, you’ll notice a fresh, glowing appearance that may continue to improve over the next few weeks.
Please note: You'll need to stay out of direct sun exposure for 7-10 days after the treatment.
How long do results last?
Results begin to appear within 7 days, and improvements will continue over the following 4-6 weeks. After that, the results can last 2-4 months after one peel, or they’ll last for 6 months or more with repeated treatments.

What are possible side effects?
Chemical peels are generally well tolerated. You could experience changes in pigmentation, with patches of skin turning darker or lighter. While chemical peels are suitable for all skin types and skin colors, people with darker skin tones are at a higher risk of seeing these changes. To help reduce this risk, you could avoid exercising or sweating for 3-4 days after treatment. Your Modern Age clinician can also help advise how to best avoid complications.

Other possible side effects include redness, swelling, blistering, itchiness, burning, dryness, allergic reaction, or infection. A rare side effect is scarring. Be sure to avoid picking at the skin to prevent this from happening.
