A chemical peel is a non-invasive cosmetic technique that improves and smooths skin texture. It works by removing the outermost layers of the skin, inducing a controlled ‘injury’ to it. The body’s wound healing processes begin to work, resulting in new, regenerated skin.
Chemical peels use gentle solutions that are effective at removing the outer dermis. The process doesn’t take very long as the chemicals only stay on your face for a few minutes. Patients will often notice immediate results from a chemical peel.
It’s possible to have chemical peels that impact shallow or more profound facial skin layers, depending on your individual needs. The Refinery Medspa & Wellness, based in West Melbourne, FL, offers tailored chemical peel solutions to address all cosmetic concerns.

A person will typically have a chemical peel if their face shows signs of the aging process, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture. They’re also useful for treating scarring, such as acne scars, and remedying discoloration caused by sun damage.
Chemical peels safely exfoliate the skin by reducing blemishes and smoothing skin texture, resulting in a radiant appearance. What’s more, chemical peels restore skin health thanks to the skin regeneration process triggered by the chemicals used.
Some patients may also benefit from dermaplaning treatments. They are often combined with chemical peel treatments. Dermaplaning is accomplished by one of our skincare specialists who uses a unique scalpel tool to scrape away the skin’s top layer.
Another advantage of chemical peels is patients have little downtime associated with the treatments. Each chemical peel session is only around 30 to 60 minutes long, and The Refinery Medspa & Wellness recommends patients have minimal to no sun exposure.
The Refinery Medspa & Wellness offers a selection of chemical peel treatments designed to meet each patient’s individual needs.

An advantage of chemical peels is they are versatile. Most patients are candidates for chemical peels if they wish to address facial skin concerns, such as sun damage, acne scarring, and the effects of aging.
Ideal candidates for chemical peels include patients that have hyperpigmentation, rough skin, and a non-radiant complexion. You should avoid chemical peels if you wish to spend a lot of time in the sun soon after treatment.
