In Defense of the Chemical Peel

We know, “chemical peel” sounds harsh, but trust us, this is one treatment you need to book!  Truth + Beauty offers a variety of chemical peels which range from light to intense.  Today we’re arguing in defense of the chemical peel; you can thank us later.

What is a Chemical Peel?


A chemical peel is a skincare treatment where a topical solution of Alpha/Beta Hydroxy Acid is applied to skin to dissolve dead skin cells and encourage cell turnover.  Chemical peels come in a variety of strengths; some chemical peels are very abrasive while others are more gentle for sensitive skin.  Chemical peels are a great way to amp up your skin’s glow before a special occasion such as a wedding or for the holidays.  Before your chemical peel, we recommend a Moment of Truth skincare analysis; this will allow us to take a closer look at your skin’s current state so we can determine your specific needs.  A chemical peel is ideal for those looking for a bright, even complexion.

Benefits of a Chemical Peel

We love our Truth + Beauty chemical peels for so many reasons!  Do you have sensitive skin?  Dry skin?  We have a chemical peel for every skin type.  Chemical peels are a great way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten large pores, and even out skin tone.  Chemical peels are also a great way to eliminate acne scars, hyperpigmentation, melasma, scars and signs of sun damage.  We encourage you to take a before and after photo at our NEW selfie station to document your results; you’re definitely going to notice the difference.

Pre and Post Treatment Care


Before you arrive at Truth + Beauty for your chemical peel service, we recommend that you abstain from using any retinols and waxing procedures three days prior.  After your chemical peel, we encourage you to use gentle cleansers and a hydrating moisturizer for one week.  Pick up our Truth + Beauty Gentle Foaming Cleanser in-store; it’s the perfect face wash.  We also recommend that you avoid sun exposure for two weeks and protect your skin with an SPF 25 at the minimum.
