All You Need to Know About Facial Exfoliations & the Chemical Peel Process
Chemical peels and facial exfoliations have become highly popular in recent years. By triggering cellular turnover, these fantastic skin rejuvenation methods often result in restored skin and a significant reduction in dullness, discolorations, wrinkles, and fine lines.
Here, the Aria team has outlined what you can expect and what some of your best options are!
How Can Chemical Peels/Facial Exfoliations Help Me?
Young, healthy skin is full of natural complexities that add to a youthful glow. Young skin has fewer flaws, spots, and freckles. As our skin ages, it begins to wrinkle and become dull, which is why proper exfoliation is essential. An excellent skincare regiment includes regular exfoliation by sloughing off the older skin layers to reveal fresher skin underneath. This can:
- Provide even skin tone and texture
- Reduce dullness and fine lines
- Reduce pore size, oil production, and acne breakouts
- Brighten skin complexion
Who Are the Best Candidates?
Most people are excellent candidates for a chemical peel or exfoliation treatment. That said, the best candidates are particularly those who:
- Have dull skin and fine lines
- Have oily skin without active breakouts
- Desire radiant, brighter skin
To add volume beneath the skin surface, you may wish to inquire about our injectables for taut, smooth skin.

Microdermabrasion is a convenient, in-office remedy that lightly resurfaces the top layer of your skin. This treatment is highly tolerable, doesn’t use chemicals, and involves practically no downtime, making it quick and easy for those with a hectic lifestyle. Microdermabrasion can treat a wide range of aesthetic concerns, including textural issues, hyperpigmentation, and clogged pores.
Chemical Peels offer a customized approach to resolve your unique skin issues. These include a superficial peel to gently remove outer skin layers, and moderate to deeper peels for middle layer penetration.
Although thoroughly tested and extremely safe, exfoliation and chemical peels do require some recovery time. Generally, the recovery process includes staying out of the sun, and possibly home from work, until the exterior layers peel off and heal. You may be prescribed special serums or ointments to help the healing process.
The benefits you can expect from exfoliation or chemical peels are a reduction in dullness, fine lines, and discoloration. Age spots diminish, and sun-damaged skin looks brighter and fresh. A youthful glow will radiate from your complexion as well.
