Benefits of Chemical Peels

Acne Treatment

Chemical peels not only kill bacteria and reduce inflammation, they also help diminish acne scarring.

Improved Texture

A chemical peel can improve skin texture while lessening the appearance of fine lines.

Even Tone

Your chemical peel promotes the growth of new, healthy, glowing skin for a more even skin tone.

The Chemical Peel Process

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique provider. During this relaxing and energizing one-on-one, they’ll discuss your concerns, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. If your provider determines that chemical peels in Los Angeles are the best treatment for your concerns and goals, your sessions can be scheduled.



Chemical peels can be superficial to exfoliate the uppermost layer of skin or deeper to improve pigmentation and skin texture. Your Younique provider will thoroughly cleanse your treatment area, then they’ll apply the solution for your specific chemical peel. During your 15-minute session, you may feel a burning sensation (similar to a sunburn) for 1 to 2 minutes during the peel. After a layer of skin peels off, it reveals fresher, tighter cells that are not as damaged for younger-looking skin.



Chemical peel recovery time varies slightly for each patient. After chemical peels in Los Angeles, patients should:

  • Stay out of the sun for about 7 days.
  • Avoid activities that cause heavy sweating for a few days.
  • For 7 days use soap-free, gentle, hydrating cleansers, applied by hand only. No scrubbing.
  • Apply moisturizer twice each day for 7 to 14 days, until your skin is no longer dry and tight.
  • Put on sunscreen that is SPF 30 or higher each day for the future protection of your younger skin.

Patients will see improved skin tone and texture with each treatment.
