Chemical Peels: Pre and Post Treatment Instructions

Seaport Medspa offers a variety of chemical peels for different skin types and goals. A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate and remove the outermost layers. The goal of a chemical peel is to improve the appearance and texture of the skin by promoting cell turnover and revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath.

During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is carefully applied to the skin, usually on the face, neck or hands. The solution causes controlled damage to the outer layers of the skin, which subsequently peel off over the following days or weeks. This process stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen, resulting in a rejuvenated and more youthful-looking complexion.

It's important to note because of the variety of chemical peels offered by Seaport Medspa we only provide generic pre-care instructions on our website. The specific chemical peel treatment post-care instructions will be provided during your appointment to ensure you have the best results possible.
