A chemical peel is a safe and effective way of improving and smoothing the texture of skin by removing damaged outer layers.
Resurfacing treatments date back to ancient Egypt, where forms of skin exfoliation were used by Cleopatra to maintain youthful beauty. Fast forward to today, where a Denver chemical peel is a medically proven resurfacing treatment available to enhance the skin’s health and appearance. We can accomplish this by using advanced solutions to peel the skin. Though the term may sound dramatic, chemical peels are actually just a way to trigger a deep exfoliation process. They are very safe and cause minimal discomfort. You might be surprised how effective they are on a variety of skin conditions and how refreshed your skin feels.
For optimal results, 2 series of 4-6 procedures per year are recommended. Combine your Urban Denver chemical peel with a customized home care program for even better results.

What are chemical peels?
Chemical peels produce controlled injury to the skin, which promote growth of new skin and improved appearance. A variety of chemicals can be used as peeling agents and include glycolic, trichloroacetic (TCA), salicylic and resorcinol. The different chemical solutions produce different degrees of injury to the skin.
What are chemical peels used for?
Chemical peels are used for the treatment of photoaging (from sun damage), wrinkles, scarring, acne, precancerous lesions, and discoloration (including melasma, freckles, and age spots).
How are chemical peels performed?
There are numerous chemical peels and each one is performed differently. In general, chemical peels usually begin with vigorous cleansing of the skin, followed by application of the appropriate peel.
How long do chemical peels take?
Most peels are performed in half an hour, depending on size of the area being treated.
Is a chemical peel painful?
No. There is a mild degree of “tingling” or a slightly itchy sensation while the glycolic acid is in contact with the skin. Upon neutralizing the peel, the skin feels fresh and smooth without discomfort.
Can I go out into the sun after having a chemical peel?
You may go outside, but sunscreen must be worn for at least a few days after the peel as your skin will likely be a little more sensitive to sun exposure.
What will my skin feel like after a chemical peel?
The state of your skin after a peel depends on the type of chemical used and your skin type. Superficial peels have limited effects. Medium peels may cause some redness and the deeper peels may require 10-14 days to recover.
How long after a chemical peel before I can return to normal activities?
Light Peels take approximately three to five days to complete the shedding process and require little to no downtime. Medium Peels usually persist for five to seven days. The skin may or may not flake and fall away. AHAs can produce some redness with little or no flaking, depending on the individual.
