Procedure Chemical Peels

Are age-related changes and skin imperfections standing in the way of you having a smooth complexion? Concerns like fine lines, sun spots, acne scars, and dead skin can all be treated with a chemical peel procedure.

Chemical peels use a unique blend of chemicals to break down the outermost layer of the skin and reveal new and healthy skin underneath. Visit The Heights Plastic Surgery Med Spa in San Antonio for your next chemical peel treatment and experience luxury treatment.

What Is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that use a range of nutrients and acids to break down the skin. The variety of ingredients in our chemical peel solution act as safe exfoliating agents for the skin but also effectively remove the outermost layer.

The removal process gets rid of dead skin cells and debris buildup, along with minor skin imperfections. This reveals new skin cells underneath, providing you with a healthier-looking complexion.

The Process

The first step of your chemical peel is a thorough cleansing. Your specialist will prep the skin and remove any surface debris or bacteria. Your peel solution is then applied and remains on the skin for five to fifteen minutes.

The depth of your peel will depend on the severity of your concerns. Those with dark pigmentation, pronounced scarring, or serious sun damage will often require deeper peels. You may only need a mild peel if you have slightly enlarged pores or light sunspots.


When your chemical peel is completed, your specialist will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your skin in the days that follow. This will involve applying specific topical products that soothe the skin and promote optimal healing, but your aesthetic specialist will offer further information on proper at-home aftercare.

What Can I Expect After a Chemical Peel?

What you can expect after a chemical peel will depend on the depth of the peel. Moderate-to-deep peels can produce dramatic shedding of the skin in the hours and days following treatment, while mild peels may only create minor skin shedding after your procedure.

Even without significant shedding, you can expect to see an improvement in your skin after a chemical peel. This is because the solutions used during treatment enhance skin tone and texture regardless of peeling.
