What is a Chemical
Face Peel?

Chemical peels are skin care treatments that improve the skin’s tone and texture. They treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and dark spots by gently or aggressively exfoliating the skin, depending on your needs. This chemical exfoliation causes the outer layers of skin to peel and flake away, revealing new, healthy skin beneath.

Our bodies’ natural cell turnover process allows the skin to shed dead cells and bring new, fresh skin to the surface, free of signs of aging, sun damage, dirt, and debris. Chemical peels simply cause this process to happen faster, and the result is glowing skin.

I’m very impressed with Dr. Sudy and his team. I’ve had some bad experiences with other Wilmington doctors but Dr. Sudy is amazing! I was extremely impressed by his results, even after telling him this he insisted that I come in for a follow up to ensure that his work was perfect. He made a slight adjustment on our follow up for something I hadn’t even noticed. I will definitely be returning and will be encouraging my family and friends to make the switch to him and his team.

I don’t typically give reviews but can’t say enough good things about Dr Sudi and his staff. I’ve seen him a handful of times for fillers and Botox and I’m always more than pleased. He takes his time and listens to my concerns and always gives a natural and improved look. I’ve been to 3 other well known practices before him and he is definitely the best.

I have been using this medspa for more than a dozen years and I've never experienced anything but wonderful service from Dr. Sudy and his front desk staff. Today I had a relatively new employee inject my neurotoxin (Benjamin Epstein) and he was careful and thorough. I would gladly use him again.

After doing research on coolsculpting and med spas, I found Evolve medical Associates. I scheduled a consultation with ease. The whole staff is awesome and very helpful. We scheduled the procedures and Isabella, who does the coolsculpting is so much fun, very straightforward about everything so there were no surprises. She made the experience very pleasant and I enjoyed coming in just to talk to her. It’s been a few months since the procedures and I was able to wear a bikini at the pool/beach with confidence for the first time since I’ve had my children. I even feel more confident in my clothes and I’m so thankful for her skills and her attention to detail.

Evolve is Amazing! Professional, the absolute best. And sooo fun! I have been to a couple of other medical spas for some work and this was by far my favorite and most enjoyable experience. Isabella is an artist! She is thorough, and has exquisite attention to detail. I walked out feeling like my best self. Can’t wait to come back.

Isabella is absolutely amazing! I got coolsculpting with her and the results are incredible. She knew exactly what she was doing and I am so happy i chose to do my treatment with her! She goes above and beyond for her patients. I couldn’t go during the day because of work and she stayed after hours for me plus gave me her number to answer all my questions!! If you are looking to do coolsculpting you must go to Isabella - trust me!

Cool sculpting treatment was as comfortable as it possibly could have been. Everything was explained very clearly, including how to prepare for it. Isabella Ayescue is excellent at what she does. Very effective after my first treatment so came back for another.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do Chemical Peels Hurt?

Most patients who decide to have chemical peels experience only slight irritation, but the more aggressive the peel, the more discomfort you may feel. You may experience mild burning or stinging during the treatment itself, but this sensation is only temporary.

Is There Downtime Associated with Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are easy to work into a busy lifestyle; you can undergo a chemical peel on your lunch hour and return to work right after! There is really no downtime with chemical peels — you’ll leave Evolve with a healthy glow and be able to carry on with your day.

However, you should avoid any activities that cause sweating for at leaves 48 hours after treatment. Your skin may also be shiny and show signs of redness at first, but these effects wear off within the first twelve hours after your chemical peel.

When Will I Start “Peeling”?

Every person’s experience will be different, but on average, you will begin to see flaking two to three days after treatment. It is possible to see flaking for as many as five or six days.

What if My Skin Doesn’t Peel?

You won’t necessarily experience visible peeling, but that doesn’t mean your treatment was ineffective. Everyone experiences different levels of peeling, dependent on your skin type, resilience, type of peel, and number of layers applied. Some people experience “sheeting” or “flaking,” where large or small pieces of the skin peel off, but it’s similar to dry winter skin or peeling after a sunburn.

If your skin doesn’t peel, that means you’re still exfoliating. In this case, the exfoliation is happening on a cellular level that can’t be seen by the naked eye. Typically, the deeper peel you receive, the more extensive peeling you will experience.

Do Chemical Peels Require Aftercare?

After your chemical peel, there are steps you should take to ensure that your results are maximized. We’ll send you home with your personalized post-procedure regimen designed to keep redness and peeling to a minimum.

In addition, for two days after your procedure, we ask that you void:

  • Applying ice or water to the treated areas
  • Direct hot shower sprays, Jacuzzis, steam rooms, and saunas
  • Swimming and excessive sweating
  • Any kind of mechanical exfoliation devices
  • Direct heat from a hair dryer

We also ask that you discontinue the use of Retin-A®/Renova® or Differin® for seven days after treatment. If you are pregnant, nursing, or using a separate treatment like Accurane®, we do not recommend chemical peel, but we have other treatments available to meet your needs.

When Can I Wear Makeup/Sunscreen/Moisturizer?

After receiving your chemical peel, we ask that you do not apply any medications to your face besides any recommended by our Evolve experts in your treatment plan. It is ideal to let your skin stabilize overnight, but mineral makeup can be applied the following day if absolutely necessary.

We also ask that you avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat directly following treatment, but after that, always wear sunscreen, and be sure not to pick or pull at any loosening or exfoliating skin — this could potentially cause side effects like hyperpigmentation.

When Will I See Results?

Depending on the depth of your peel, it may take a few weeks for you to see results, and several treatments until you’ll achieve your optimal outcome. When you come to Evolve for your consultation, we’ll be able to determine how many treatments you will need, the type and depth of each peel, and how often you’ll need treatment to reach your skin care goals.
