What Is a Chemical Peel Best for?

A chemical peel can help transform your skin. At our Radiant Divine Medical Spa locations conveniently located in Avon, Brecksville, Medina, and Chagrin Falls, OH, we offer this effective chemical exfoliating treatment to help perfect your skin, regardless of your skin type or your age. Whether you struggle with acne or other skin imperfections that detract from your appearance, this exfoliating treatment can help improve your skin.

What Is a Chemical Peel Best for?

The right chemical peel can target some of the most stubborn skin conditions. They can help improve melasma, hyperpigmentation, acne-prone skin and help reverse the signs of aging, among other things. Once you add this treatment to your monthly routine, you’ll notice a gradual improvement in your skin. With time, you may even experience your best skin to date.


There are different forms of hyperpigmentation, and they affect everyone a little differently. For some, hyperpigmentation shows up as melasma. Melasma can appear as dark pigment around the mouth, cheeks, or other areas of the face.

For others, hyperpigmentation shows up in the form of age spots, sunspots, or freckles. Whatever the case, chemical peels can help improve hyperpigmentation by removing the top layer of skin and any discoloration in the epidermis along with it.

Dull Skin Tone

If your skin doesn’t look nearly as bright and vibrant as it used to, an accumulation of dead skin cells on the surface may be the problem. Unexfoliated skin can appear dull and lifeless due to the buildup of dead skin cells covering the entire surface of your face. A peel will dissolve that top layer of dead skin so that you can see a younger and brighter layer beneath. If you want a more vibrant complexion, this treatment will help you achieve it.

Acne-Prone Skin

A dead skin cell barrier and excess buildup in the pores are both contributing factors that can cause acne. If you suffer from acne-prone skin, a chemical exfoliating treatment like this one can change everything. It can help treat and heal your existing acne and help prevent future breakouts. It can also help balance your skin’s sebum production and oil content to clear your pores so that you can finally experience a clear, bright, and radiant complexion.

Fine Line and Wrinkles

If you suffer from some of the most common signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, a chemical exfoliating treatment can help reduce the signs of aging and restore youth to your face. Chemical peels contain a combination of acids that help promote collagen and elastin production.

They can initiate a reaction within the deeper layers of your skin that will help lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles so that you can feel confident about your skin. There are different peels specifically designed to target the signs of aging and even reverse some of those signs.

Large Pores

Different factors contribute to the appearance of large pores, including genetics, lifestyle choices, and skin type. If you have large pores, they can keep you from tight, toned-looking skin and a uniform skin texture. Large pores can also be more prone to becoming clogged. This treatment can help tighten and shrink your pores to create a more uniform skin texture that looks smooth and glows with health, youth, and vibrancy.

Overall Skin Health

If you’ve always had good skin but want to make it even better, this treatment can take your skin to a different level of perfection. It can give you a healthy and radiant glow that rivals some of your favorite cosmetic highlighters and can help improve your skin health. For those with good skin, chemical peels will not only make it better but act as a preventative treatment that can help protect your skin from damage, hyperpigmentation, and premature aging.

Adding this treatment to your normal skincare routine will also make your products apply better and give you the confidence that you’re taking the right steps to protect your skin, fight against aging, and keep it as healthy as possible.

Damaged Skin

Sun damage and other forms of skin damage are difficult to treat with topical products. If you feel as though there’s no hope for your skin, a series of chemical peels can make a significant difference in your complexion. If you suffer from any form of skin damage or sun damage, we can help you choose the right peel to help reverse that damage, give you a glowing complexion, and improve your skin’s overall health.

Our Peels

At Radiant Divine Medical Spa, we offer different peels to help improve all different skin types. These peels come from ZO Skin Health and SkinMedica, two professional and highly esteemed skincare lines that contain different strength ingredients to help improve skin conditions of various kinds.

The Illuminize Peel

The Illuminize Peel is the lightest SkinMedica peel that we offer. It is a good option for those who have never experienced a chemical peel before or have sensitive skin.

It contains salicylic acid and resorcinol to help rejuvenate the skin and mandelic and malic acid, two alpha-hydroxy acids that work to improve the skin without causing irritation. It will give your skin a glow, improve the complexion, address skin texture, color, and clarity. This particular peel is very light, so it results in little to no peeling.

The Vitalize Peel

The Vitalize Peel is a medium strength peel that contains some powerful ingredients, including retinoic acid, resorcinol, lactic, and salicylic acid. This peel is an effective choice for those who want to target more problematic skin conditions, including pigmentation, melasma, and acne-prone skin.

It also can help increase collagen production in the deeper layers. We typically recommend that patients schedule a series of Vitalize peels to achieve the best and most dramatic results.

The Rejuvenize Peel

The Rejuvenize Peel is the deepest and strongest SkinMedica peel treatment and is recommended for patients who have already experienced a Vitalize peel and need to take their skin to the next level to help combat more significant signs of aging or skin concerns. This peel contains a combination of strong ingredients, including salicylic, lactic acid, resorcinol, panthenol, and isoceteth-20.

ZO Skin Health Peels

We also offer a three-step peel from ZO Skin Health. This three-step peel is a unique way to improve the skin and achieve long-lasting results. It uses a blend of acids to exfoliate the skin, a 6% retinol solution, and other high-strength ingredients that help increase collagen production, improve skin texture, and tighten the pores.

It can be used on all different skin types and colors. It will strengthen the skin cell barrier, help reduce inflammation, and renew the epidermis and the dermis. We typically recommend that patients schedule a three-step peel every three to four weeks to achieve the best results.
