The Truth: Do Chemical Peels Hurt? | Cleveland Experts

We get it, we know the name “chemical peel” seems a bit intense at first glance. If you’re a first-timer considering a chemical peel in Cleveland, you might have some questions. A big one we get from new patients is: do chemical peels hurt? So we here at Radiant Divine Medical Spa decided to give it to you straight.

Chemical peels don’t hurt!

Chemical peels aren’t considered a painful treatment. The most you will experience is a feeling akin to a light sunburn, so your skin might feel a little warm and have a little redness after.

The biggest misconception that patients have about chemical peels is that there’s a lot of downtime after, but that’s not always true! Chemical peels vary in their intensity, some don’t require any downtime at all, while others might be up to two weeks.

Our skincare experts can customize your chemical peel experience based on your skin’s needs and your tolerance for downtime.

Even with a deeper peel, the benefits of chemical peels outweigh the downtime.

How do chemical peels work?

Simply put: A chemical peel is a medical-grade skincare solution that’s applied to the skin and then cleansed away after a set amount of time.

When you visit Radiant Divine Medical Spa for a chemical peel in Cleveland, you’ll sit down for an in-depth consultation with one of our skincare experts. We’ll ask about your concerns and examine your skin before choosing the perfect chemical peel for you.

Hands down, the best part of a chemical peel is that you get to sit back and relax while it does the work! You’re free to listen to music, chat with your aesthetician, or just zen out.

After your peel, we’ll give you our go-to tips for taking care of your skin before you’re free to go about your day!
