A chemical face peel is a treatment where a practitioner uses chemicals to remove the outer layers of facial skin. It will not stop aging, but it can help with blemished, unevenly colored, or wrinkled skin. Available in Hingham Ma, at Abeo MedSpa, the treatment is calibrated for intensity according to the patient’s individual needs and desired results.
The procedure will be performed in the office by your practitioner at Abeo MedSpa. The treatment differs slightly in time and method depending on which facial chemical peel you have, but in general, it is performed by a cosmetic practitioner, who carefully applies the peel after thoroughly washing the skin to be treated. In the more intense treatments, the doctor may apply petroleum jelly beforehand
In addition to rejuvenating skin, chemical peels can be useful in treating deeper imperfections, such as acne scars. For more information on which treatment would best meet your needs, contact Abeo MedSpa.

Chemical peel aftercare is important. The skin may be red, irritated or flaky for a few days following treatment. A phenol peel may cause swelling that can be surprising, but it will go away; until then, you may need some help to accomplish daily tasks. You may need pain medication, and if tape was used on your face during the procedure, your practitioner will remove it after a couple of days. Recovery can last from a few days to two weeks, depending on the intensity of the treatment performed.
With a chemical peel, sun damage carries a heightened risk. Always use sunblock, as your skin will be more sensitive to the harmful rays of the sun after a medical chemical peel.
The results can be impressive, reducing lines, scars, and discoloration.
