What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are a type of skin treatment that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin to improve the appearance of scarring, sun damage, fine lines, age spots, enlarged pores, and acne. Depending on the severity of your concerns, there are levels of peels you can receive, and the skin layers will eventually peel off to reveal youthful, glowing skin.
Dead skin cells, impurities, and dirt are removed from the epidermis, revealing new skin.

How to Prepare for Your Chemical Peel
To prepare for your chemical peel, you should not:
Exfoliate your face for a week beforehand.
Remove hair from the treatment area a week beforehand.
Stand in direct sunlight for prolonged periods.
- Wear makeup to your appointment.
It is recommended you arrive with a clean face that is in its natural state for optimal peel results.
During Your Chemical Peel Treatment
During your chemical peel, one of the talented doctors at DLK on Avenue will apply a chemical solution to your face, often containing a form of glycolic or salicylic acid. The treated area(s) will begin to light, and you will feel a mild stinging, similar to a sunburn. A neutralizing solution will then be used to remove the chemical peel, and a cold compress may be applied to the skin.
Chemical Peel Aftercare & Recovery
After a chemical peel, your face might be flaking or peeling for 4-6 days. A sunblock will be applied to the skin before leaving the clinic. You do not need peeling to experience results. Most patients notice an improvement in skin tone, texture and pigment. Instructions on how to use your post-procedure at-home products will be provided. DLK peels combine in-clinic treatments and at-home prescribed products.
