Chemical peels are a popular and effective treatment for acne because they provide several benefits, including:

Removing dead skin cells: A chemical peel removes the top layer of dead skin cells, unclogging pores and promoting new cell growth. This can help to reduce the number of acne breakouts and improve the overall appearance of the skin.

Reducing inflammation: Many chemical peels contain ingredients that can reduce inflammation and swelling, which can help to improve the appearance of inflamed acne.

Improving skin texture and tone: Chemical peels can improve skin texture and tone, giving the skin a brighter, more youthful-looking appearance.

Reducing the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation: Some chemical peels can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation, which can improve the overall appearance of the skin.

Tailored to your specific needs: Chemical peels come in a variety of strengths and can be tailored to your specific needs and skin type. A professional esthetician can help you determine the best peel for your skin.

How We Treat & Approach Acne

The first steps when addressing and developing an acne treatment plan is to first identify the root cause and your skin type. These two things will set the foundation for how we decide to approach treatment.

Common Causes of Acne:

  • Acne may also be caused by an aggravating factor such as dairy, gluten or refined sugar in your diet, sensitivity to certain shampoos or hair care products, using old or expired makeup, and pregnancy
  • Acne may also be from your lifestyle, such as working in a greasy kitchen or the night shift, not washing your face, stress or a change in climate due to vacation or a move may all be to blame
  • If your acne is from genetic predisposition, meaning that the acne gene was passed on from mom or dad, this disease may continually present itself for years to come. If this is the cause of your acne, please talk with a dermatologist about Accutane as it is the only “cure” for genetic acne.

Discerning your skin type is the easy part. The amount of surface area covered with large pores will tell us if you are a dry, combination or oily skin type. Dry skin presenting acne is treated much more gently than an oily skin type.

Level One & Two Chemical Peels

Due to the varying strengths and different active ingredients in chemical peel solutions, we are able to utilize them for a more customized and aggressive treatment of acne. Level One Chemical Peels containing salicylic and glycolic acids are used to treat all acne skin types. Salicylic acid helps control the amount of surface oils that contribute to clogged pores whereas glycolic acid helps those exfoliate clogged skin pores.

Level Two Chemical Peels are utilized when level one peels are not enough and on excessively oily skin. These peels may also contain Retinol and be layered for precision depth. Additionally, other tools such as a high-frequency device, and certain essential oils are used to control bacteria.

Regardless of what kind of acne we are treating the same theory will always apply. Exfoliate the pores, control oil production and kill acne-causing bacteria.

frequently asked questions
  • What Is A Chemical Peel?

    A chemical peel is a treatment that uses naturally derived substances to peel away the top layers of the skin. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing process which creates new healthy, young skin cells. Chemical peels can help with sun damage, acne, melasma (pregnancy mask), acne scarring, pore size, and fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Are Chemical Peels Safe?

    Some people see the word “chemical” and imagine something unnatural or harsh, but all of the acids that we use are from a natural origin. The word “chemical” is used to denote that it is not a mechanical form of exfoliation like a scrub or microdermabrasion but that there is a “chemical” reaction taking place within the skin cells.

    Chemical peels are completely safe substances when used properly and for the appropriate skin type. However it is very important that you protect your skin from our Denver sun to void unnecessary risk of sunburn post treatment.

  • What Is The Difference Between A Level I, Il, And TCA Peel?

    There are lots of variables that come into play to determine the strength of a chemical peel. The ingredient, PH level, how long the chemical peel is left on the skin, how many layers are applied, and weather the peel is lightly applied or vigorously rubbed in all play a role in determining the level of peeling and downtime.

    Level I peels have no downtime with zero to minimal flaking, also known as a “lunchtime” peel. These chemical peels are usually alpha hydroxy acid based witch give a lovely glow to the skin and are a great form of exfoliation for skin that feels rough and lackluster.

    Level II peels have a higher percentage active ingredient with mild to moderate skin peeling that usually lasts 2-3 days. These peels are typically Jessner’s solutions which contain a blend of resorcinol, lactic acid, and salicylic acid. Best for more corrective and lightening effects compared to a level I peel.

    TCA or trichloracetic acid (level III) peel is a medical-strength peel that has the longest peeling time (usually 3-5 days) but also provides the most correction in one treatment. TCA peels are perfect for someone trying to correct acne scarring, severe sun damage, or more advanced signs of aging.

  • How Many Chemical Peels Will I Need?

    Number and frequency of peels are all dependent on your skin care concerns- whether you are trying to correct years of sun damage, fine lines, acne, or even skin that looks dull and lackluster. Normally we like to use a variety of treatments and modalities, so we highly recommend coming in initially for a facial or consultation so that we can create a customized treatment plan, tailor-fit to your own individual needs.

  • Do Chemical Peels Hurt?

    You should expect a slight tingling sensation and warmth during the treatment. The higher level of the peel the more activity you will feel. Your esthetician will be checking in on your comfort level throughout the treatment by using a scale from 1-10 to gauge the level of activity you feel.

  • How Should I Prep For My Chemical Peel?

    An at home skin care regime containing the same type of active ingredients found in the chemical peel solution will better prepare your skin for accepting the chemical peel and post treatment healing. We do however recommend discontinuing prescription topical exfoliators like Retin-A for three days prior to treatment.

  • What Should I Expect After A Chemical Peel Treatment?

    Immediately after treatment your skin may feel flushed or warm, this sensation dissipates within a few hours but we recommend avoiding any aerobic exercise, hot showers, saunas and pools with chemicals for 72 hours. Typically by day two your skin starts to feel rather dry and tight, which is a sign you will start the peeling process. The peeling process can be mild or more significant depending on the level of the peel and last 2-5 days. Throughout the healing process you will want to be diligent about sunscreen and avoid excessive exfoliation of the area. By day 7 your skin is fully healed and you can enjoy the benefits of the service!

I go to Denver Laser Solutions for Botox and laser hair removal and all the girls are amazing. I usually see Mara, she is so thorough and welcoming and makes me feel so comfortable. The last time I went, she did my Botox and it’s literally the BEST job I’ve ever had. I’m very picky with my face, and this is the only place I trust for my injectables. I recommend to all my friends and family.
