Introduction to Chemical Peels

As part of the natural aging process, the skin will eventually lose its glow and elasticity. For patients looking to give their skin a fresh start, Chemical Peels can help rejuvenate facial skin (and other areas of the body), offering a more youthful appearance with the deep, healthy glow that you deserve. At Renu Medispa in Eagle, ID, just outside of Boise, we help our patients refresh and rejuvenate their skin while improving color, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring with our chemical peel treatments.

What are Chemical Peels?

At Renu Medispa, we love helping clients with a fast, easy way to regenerate healthy layers of skin. While lasers and light treatments work on tissue beneath the skin’s surface, chemical peels treat the upper layers, providing immediate, visible results. When used in conjunction with light therapies like LED or IPL Photorejuvenation, chemical peels play a vital role in skin care protocol.

Don’t trust your face to just anyone. At Renu, our team of highly trained skincare experts will provide you with the safest chemical peel options based on your specific skin type. We understand that no two faces are the same, and not all chemical peels are right for everyone.

Exfoliating Peels Tackle Surface Problems

Exfoliating peels are mild chemical peels that tackle problems on the skin’s surface. These are great for patients who want to:

  • Smooth rough, dry skin
  • Control acne
  • Improve skin texture

An exfoliating peel is a great first step in achieving your skincare goals. Followed up by a custom facial a few weeks after treatment, you can achieve soft, glowing skin that you’ll be proud to show off!

Metabolic Peels Target The Deep Layers of Skin

Metabolic Peels contain retinol, fruit acids, growth factors, peptides, and antioxidants in addition to more traditional ingredients like salicylic or glycolic acids. These advanced peels produce amazing transformations on the skin’s surface and can be used to help manage:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rough texture
  • Pigmentation
  • Acne
  • Sun damage

Renu Medispa carries one of the only chirally corrective chemical peel lines that work to reduce inflammation and boost recovery time while providing the same medical results as stronger chemical peels.

Alpha Hydroxy Acid products stimulate the skin’s natural renewal process. These peels reach the cellular level for intense cell healing and are often combined with serum therapy, making them a favorite among our clients.

What’s the first Step?

If you are looking into Chemical Peels in the Boise area, the first step is to contact Renu Medispa and schedule a consultation. During this appointment, you will meet with a member of our aesthetics team who will examine the area of your skin that you are looking to improve and discuss what your goals are from the treatment. They will also ask you about your medical history, during which time you should be completely honest to prevent any unnecessary risks or side effects. 

The different outcomes of each level of chemical peel will be explained and your provider will recommend which option would be best for your situation. If you agree with the treatment plan that they create for you, you will be able to have your first Chemical Peel session after your consultation. If you need to come in another day for any reason, our Guest Relations Specialist will help set up that appointment.

What to Expect on the Day of Chemical Peels

When you come into our Med Spa for your Chemical Peel, your skin will first be thoroughly cleaned and your technician will apply one or more chemical solutions to small areas of your skin, creating a controlled wound and letting new skin take its place. 

Most patients will feel a mild burning sensation that lasts about five to ten minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. When the process is complete, the technician will apply cool compresses to your skin to help ease the stinging.

The ingredients in the peel work to gently blister the very top layers of skin which then peel off over a number of days. By doing this, new skin is revealed which tends to be smoother, brighter, and more even.

Chemical peels, when performed by a skin specialist like those at our Medical Spa, are completely safe and an excellent solution for people who want to rejuvenate their skin and smooth out mild skin laxity without the invasion or expense of surgery.

Chemical Peels Recovery

Our Boise Chemical Peel patients must be careful about post-care instruction and timing to avoid exposing the skin to the harmful effects of sun rays. Consult with our team before directly exposing yourself to the sun, before or after a chemical peel procedure.

Avoid direct sunlight where possible and keep your skin properly moisturized. If you need to be in the sun after getting a chemical peel, be sure to use a high-SPF sunblock (SPF 25 or above). 

How Much Do Chemical Peels Cost in Boise, ID?

The cost of Chemical Peels in Boise and Eagle, ID is determined by multiple factors, such as which Chemical Peel you are getting, the surface area being treated, and the degree of the peel. During your consultation, the provider will be able to discuss pricing for everything and once your plan is made, our Guest Relations Specialist will be able to provide you with a cost breakdown.
