Chemical Peels by Kamila Beauty Studio

Repair & Refresh Your Skin

Chemical Peels help your skin by exfoliating the damages caused to it. They are a fabulous solution for an array of skin concerns, from acne, wrinkles or hyperpigmentation. So, if you are looking into ways to get brighter, clearer, more youthful-looking skin, chemical peels could be the answer. They can help repair and reverse numerous damages caused to your skin on your face, neck or chest area.

In addition to addressing your current skin issues, a chemical peel treatment stimulates the growth of fresh, new skin. It rejuvenates the overall tone and texture of your skin, giving you a healthy, radiant glow. Chemical peels remove the top layer of dead skin. Once that layer is removed, your skin will better absorb your cosmetic products, allowing the smallest amount of that expensive night cream to go a long way.

Reduce The Signs Of Time

Do you want to minimize the signs of age and damages caused by the sun?


Chemical Peels contribute to improving the youthful appearance of your skin. They can significantly reduce fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, and age spots.

They are the most effective, non-invasive treatment to erase the signs of age on your skin.

Do you want a more uniform skin complexion and tone?


Studies have reported that chemical peels can help balance the skin’s natural oil production to reduce acne significantly. They are excellent for correcting issues of pigmentation such as melasma, hyperpigmentation, redness, and discoloration.


Besides, they can help achieve a smoother and more even-looking skin. The treatment improves visibly the appearance of your skin.

Ultimately your skin is smoother and less scarred in appearance.

Chemical Peels FAQ

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment option that involves removing the damaged outer layers of your skin. To perform the procedure, I will apply a specialized acid solution on your face, which depending on the strength of the chosen peel, will cause the damaged surface layer of dead skin to blister and peel off. Once that "wound" has healed, you will have a brand new layer of skin that is brighter, smoother, and more youthful than ever.

How much skin is removed? How deep does the chemical peel go?

A Chemical Peel penetration rate depends on:

  • The type of chemical peel.

  • Its strength.

  • The application time on your skin to trigger the activation process.

The most common chemical peel categories are:

  • Very Superficial – Stratum corneum: Mandelic, glycolic, salicylic, and lactic acids.

  • Superficial – Epidermal layers: Glycolic, pyruvic and salicylic acids, Jessner's Medium Depth – Papillary dermis – glycolic, pyruvic, and salicylic, acid, Jessners, TCA.

  • Deep – Reticular dermis: Carbolic acid (Phenol Peel), high strength TCA.


At Kamila Beauty Studio I only use the very superficial category of peels is used as well as enzyme peels.

How do I prepare my skin for a chemical peel?

  • Six Weeks Before The Peel: Stop any products containing potent vitamin A derivatives. Example: Retin-A, AIrol, Renova, Differin (Adapalene 0.1%), Tazorac.

  • One Week Before Peel: Avoid electrolysis, waxing, hair removal creams, and laser hair removal for an entire week before your chemical peel.

  • 24 Hours Before Your Peel: Stop using any exfoliating products, products that may be drying or irritating, including those containing alpha or beta hydroxy acids or benzoyl peroxide (a treatment for acne).

What to expect after your chemical peel?


After a chemical peel procedure, there may be some redness and skin irritation. The skin area treated should be carefully protected from the sun for several weeks to reduce the risk of discoloration.

What is the recommended chemical peel aftercare?

It is very important to use sunscreen during the course of your treatment (and for 4 weeks after) to prevent uneven skin tone and excess pigmentation.


Do not use any other skin products except those advised.

  • Do not use Alpha Hydroxy Acids or Beta Hydroxy Acids on your skin for 24 hours.

  • Avoid direct sunlight for at least one month.

  • Please avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours.

  • Apply a light moisturizer such as SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 or Post Peel Balm by Circadia as often as needed to relieve dryness and tightness.

  • Do not have any other facial treatment for at least one week after the peel.


After healing from a chemical peel, the skin may appear darker temporarily. This is called hyperpigmentation.


Although it is temporary, it is distressing. To minimize the risk, I recommend pre-treating your skin with hydroquinone, which is a bleaching cream, to turn down the pigment-producing capacity of the skin.

Are there any contraindications for a chemical peel?

Please avoid chemical peels if you have/are:

  • Open wounds, cuts, abrasions, piercings, tattoos

  • Active asthma

  • Cystic acne

  • Pregnant and breastfeeding

  • A family history of keloids or hypertrophic scars

  • Received laser treatments in the last 6 months

  • A family history of developing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

  • Other medical conditions
