What are Chemical Peels?
For the best results from chemical peel treatments, JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL provides you with several different options. Your individualized facial treatment with chemical solutions will reveal healthier, more radiant skin. We proudly offer different chemical peel solutions, including glycolic, salicylic, Jessner’s and Mandelic peels, Glytone Lip and Eye Peel, and JEM Melanage Peel Systems. Chemical peel treatments reduce the appearance of skin flaws, such as wrinkles, fine lines, scars, rough patches, and hyperpigmentation issues. Causing the oldest skin layer to peel off, personalized chemical peels clear away damaged, dead skin cells. As your skin heals and starts to repair and rejuvenate itself, you will see a clearer, smoother complexion. A chemical peel is a great noninvasive treatment option that works well on the face and neck.
Variations of Chemical Peels
At our Orland Park and Elmhurst, IL offices, we offer chemical peels in several strengths (light, medium, and deep) to fit our patients' skin care concerns and goals.
Light peels: You can receive a light chemical peel on your lunch hour and get back to your daily routine. This type of peel will remove the top layer of your skin, giving your complexion a more radiant appearance and softer texture. We typically suggest that you schedule a light treatment at least once a month for the best glowing results.
Medium-depth peels: This type of chemical peel reaches further into the skin, and generally, you'll prefer to have this level of facial rejuvenation treatment during a long weekend. You may also need to prepare yourself for additional discomfort during and about an hour following the treatment. Medium-depth peels are best for patients who have significant damage to their skin, including deeper lines and darker pigmentation issues.
Deep peels: The most advanced of the three types of peels is the deep peel, and it does require the most recovery time. This more aggressive treatment can leave your face swollen, itchy, and peeling for a few weeks. Typically, patients who receive a deep chemical peel have age or dark spots, sun-damaged skin, prominent acne scars, or deep-seated scars. Because this type of chemical peel is usually uncomfortable for most patients, we may provide you with mild anesthesia before your peel.

Seeking the advice of a skin specialist is the first step in the journey to healthy, smooth skin. A team member at JEM Medspa will evaluate your skin during an examination in our Orland Park or Elmhurst, IL office before selecting a chemical peel treatment for optimal results. Usually, chemical peel candidates have visible issues, like scaly patches, hyperpigmentation, flaky skin, sun spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. To match your cosmetic concerns and goals, we may recommend varying levels of chemical peels.
During your chemical peel, we will ask you to lie in a comfortable position while administering your treatment. Before applying the personalized solution to your face, neck, or both, we will ensure your skin is cleaned. Next, we will brush the solution onto your face and allow it to sit for a short amount of time. At your consultation, we will determine how long the solution stays on. A team member will clean the peel off your face and apply a neutralizing agent. To protect your delicate skin from UV exposure, we recommend bringing sunscreen or a hat to wear outside.
What to Expect
Depending on the strength of your chemical peel, you can expect the treatment area to peel and itch for a few days to two or more weeks. Following the procedure, a member of our team will discuss and provide detailed aftercare instructions for your skin. We recommend always applying sunscreen anytime you go outside, avoiding exfoliants, and using a moisturizing facial cream. Please keep in mind that no matter how badly your skin itches during the healing process, you should never pull the skin off. You may cause scarring to your delicate skin!
