Overtime, sun exposure and the natural aging process can take a toll on the quality of our complexion. A daily skincare regimen of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing is an excellent way of helping our skin healthy. Here at Nourished MedSpa and Wellness Center, we use ZO Skin Health products. A chemical peel is an advanced skin care treatment that renews and nourishes skin for a healthy and radiant complexion, by exfoliating the top layers of skin.
What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are personalized skin care treatments that work to lift and smooth away damage and debris from the surface of skin. Treatments use unique chemical solutions to extract damage and eliminate complexions flaws for a rejuvenated appearance. There are a variety of chemical peel solutions designed to target and correct many common skin concerns that we use:
- Lactic Acid—aging, acneic or keratizined skin
- Glycolic Acid – dry, aging skin
- Salicylic Acid—oily, acneic skin
- Alpha-Beta Peel—salicyclic followed by glycolic acid
- Modified Jessner’s Peel (14% LA, 14% SA, 14% GA)
- Lite Jessner’s (7% LA, 7% SA, 7% Resorcinol)

LACTIC ACID PEEL
An alpha hydroxy acid, lactic acid is generally used to treat skin that is tolerant to glycolic acid, pigmented, uneven, dehydrated or in need of maintenance.
GLYCOLIC ACID PEEL
The glycolic peel will address lines, wrinkles, and mild hyperpigmentation for an overall rejuvenation. This deep strength yet superficial peel is recommended for experienced peelers with combination to dry skin types and is safe for all skin tones.
SALICYCLIC ACID PEEL
The salicylic peel is a deep strength beta hydroxy acid used to clear clogged pores with repeated use. This deep strength peel is appropriate for experienced users only with an oily/acneic skin type and is safe for all skin tones.
The alpha beta peel is a full spectrum peel because it combines an application of Beta Hydroxy Acid (Salicylic Acid) followed with an application of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (Glycolic Acid). Research shows that applying Salicylic Acid before applying Glycolic Acid will cause the Glycolic Acid to penetrate the skin more deeply – resulting in a totally unique and highly superior facial peel. For those suffering with an acneic skin condition, the alpha-beta peel is the ultimate “golden ratio”.
Jessner’s peel is a popular medium depth chemical peel that contains a combination of lactic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol to help improve skin health.
Helps remove rough, scaly skin via its keratolytic action making it useful in targeting skin blemishes, redness, marks, scars and flaky skin while also addressing discoloration and age damage.
A skin-lightening ingredient that treats hyperpigmentation, melasma, dark spots, sun spots, freckles, and age spots.
The TCA peel is perfect for experienced users looking for a deeper peel with heavier peeling and who do not mind up to 2 weeks of downtime. This peel will firm and tighten sagging skin and will address deeper wrinkles and texture issues.
How Does it Work?
During an initial consultation, a personalized treatment plan is created that is tailored to your specific skin needs and aesthetic desires. During treatment, the specialized chemical peel solution is gently applied to the surface of skin. It then works to exfoliate and lift the top layer of damaged skin tissue. The dead and damaged skin cells are wiped away, revealing a fresh new layer of healthy and supple skin. This fresh new layer is more accepting of nourishing botanicals for an enhanced and youthful glow.
