The Blush Aesthetics chemical peel facials use safe, medical-grade solutions to clean, soothe, and rejuvenate your skin. Our specialists use the leading techniques, technology, and practices to ensure we offer the best chemical peels in Ottawa Hills. We’ve got the formulas to reveal bright, healthy skin that glows.
What is a chemical peel?
Sometimes when people hear the word chemical, they picture the vat of green goo the Joker fell into. Chemicals are just substances with a defined composition, like water! For a chemical peel, we use customized formulas with chemical exfoliants to improve skin’s appearance by “peeling” away the top layer or layers of skin, revealing the undamaged fresh skin beneath.
Chemical peels are designed for light, medium, or deep exfoliation.
You can have a light chemical peel, such as a glycolic acid peel, on your lunch break and get back to your day. This strength of peel removes the very top layer of skin for a brighter complexion and a smoother, softer texture without the need for downtime.
This strength of chemical peel penetrates deeper into your skin, and typically we recommend our patients seek this level of treatment before a long weekend to accommodate some redness and peeling. As expected, medium-depth chemical peels also come with a higher level of discomfort than light peels. Any pain should dissipate within an hour of your treatment. Medium-depth peels are best for patients who have significant damage to their skin, such as deeper wrinkles and darker pigmentation issues.
The most advanced of the three types of chemical peels is the deep peel treatment, and it will require the most recovery time. This is an aggressive cosmetic treatment that could leave your face peeling, itchy, and swollen for several weeks.
Deep chemical peels are only recommended for patients who have dark age spots, sun-damaged skin, significant acne scars, or other deep and pigmented scars. As this strength of peel is typically uncomfortable for most patients, we provide you with mild anesthesia prior to your procedure.
Common chemical peel ingredients
We combine the highest quality medical-grade ingredients in our chemical peels. Some common ingredients include:
- Salicylic acid
- Vitamin C
- Glycolic acid
Like all other aesthetic skin treatments offered at our med spa, chemical peels require a skin consultation so one of our experts can thoroughly assess the condition of your skin. Armed with this knowledge, we can work with you to make the best possible decisions regarding what ingredients we use for your chemical peels in Ottawa Hills.
What to expect during your chemical peel
Once you are comfortable in your treatment room, your provider will cleanse your skin before applying the customized solution to the treatment areas. They massage the solution into your skin and let it penetrate for a specified amount of time. Once that time has elapsed, the provider washes the solution and applies a neutralizing agent.

Frequently asked questions about chemical peels
Are chemical peels dangerous?
No! Our trained specialists at Blush Aesthetics utilize the latest techniques, procedures, and technology to provide the safest, most effective treatment possible.
Do chemical peels hurt?
No! Facials should be a relaxing, pampering experience; however, if you feel any pain or discomfort, let your specialist know right away.
When will I see results?
You’ll feel the difference immediately. You should see a difference in your skin’s appearance within days of your treatment.
How long will the procedure take?
Your procedure time can vary based on your desired results, skin type, etc.
How much does a chemical peel cost?
We will talk about your costs in your consultation after we have formulated your chemical peel treatment plan. The cost of a chemical peel can vary based on the level you get.
What level should I choose for my chemical peel?
The best chemical peel for you will depend on your unique skin needs and cosmetic goals. During your consultation, we will help you select which peel is right for your skin. Some factors you may consider are your overall health, your skin type, how deep you want the peel to work, how long you can spend in recovery, and what concerns you have about the appearance of your skin. For first time patients, it may be better to start with a lighter peel and see how you like the results. From there, we might tweak your plan to discover the best chemical peel level for your needs.
Can I combine a chemical peel with other treatments?
For even greater improvements to your skin, you may combine a chemical peel with another skin treatment. During your consultation, be honest with your aesthetician about your skin and cosmetic concerns so they can create a personalized treatment plan to best address your goals. This may include injectable treatments along with your chemical peel to rejuvenate your whole appearance.
