Chemical Peels Q&A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels use special solutions to carefully remove the top layer of your skin. Over time, sun damage, stress, and environmental pollutants can manifest on your skin as fine lines, brown spots and other common aging concerns. The surface of your skin, the epidermis, endures more damage than the dermis or subcutaneous layers underneath.

By removing the surface layer, a chemical peel reveals the fresh, untouched skin underneath. The treatment is available in various depths to help you achieve the level of skin rejuvenation you desire.

At Radiance Wellness & Aesthetics, Zayda is a certified provider of PCA Skin chemical peels. This high-quality brand only partners with licensed skin care professionals to give men and women safe, effective care. 

How do chemical peels work?

Chemical peels use solutions that raise the skin’s acidity to remove dead skin cells. The solution loosens the surface layer of the skin, causing it to slough off. The effects of a chemical peel aren’t instant. After your visit, you may experience light peeling over the next few days. The fresh, new skin appears brighter, clearer, and firmer.

Which skin concerns can chemical peels address?

Chemical peels can address a wide range of skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brown spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars
  • Dull skin
  • Uneven tone or texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Melasma
  • Freckles

Chemical peels can also help improve the appearance of certain types of acne and precancerous lesions called actinic keratosis.

What are the different types of chemical peels?

Chemical peels come in varying levels to target different skin concerns. Depending on your needs, Zayda may recommend:


A light peel removes the outermost layer of the skin. Light peels typically don’t require downtime, so you can resume your normal activities right away. Zayda may recommend returning for regular treatments until you see your desired results.


A medium peel removes the surface layer of your skin and the top of the dermis. Medium peels require only minimal downtime and often produce visible results after one treatment.


A deep peel penetrates the deeper levels of the dermis for dramatic results. Most deep peels require extensive downtime, but you don’t have to return for another treatment.
