At Haevum, we know that everyone’s skincare journey is different. That’s why we offer an array of chemical peel services tailored to your skin’s needs. Whether you want to revive dull, aging skin, treat acne scars or fade discoloration, our Medical-grade services are here to help.

During the procedure, chemical agents are used to resurface and, at times, remove the top layers of the skin. Chemical peels can be done at different depths (ranging from superficial to deep) to achieve specific results, depending on your individual needs.

What it treats

A chemical peel can be an ideal procedure for addressing hyperpigmentation because it actually removes the top, damaged layers of your skin. The key is matching the right peel to your individual - that's where we come in!
A light chemical peel improves skin texture and tone and lessens the appearance of fine wrinkles. Results are subtle but increase with repeated treatments. If you have a medium chemical peel, treated skin will be noticeably smoother.
Dry skin? A chemical peel can fix that. During the procedure, acid removes the top dull layers of the skin. This process supports the production of collagen which helps repair damaged cells and eliminates dry texture.
Whether you have discoloration or pock marks from past acne, chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of of acne scarring. The peel works beneath the surface of the skin to promote new skin cell growth, which can help lessen the appearance of acne scars over time.
The peel acts by loosening the upper layers of skin, which will start to peel off over time. Once the top layer of skin has fully peeled away, the new skin cells are revealed. This new skin layer is even, smooth, and blemish-free. Results will depend on each individual case


After recovery, the skin’s texture and appearance improves, replacing a dull or tired look with a bright and glowing one. Sun damage and scarring is also reduced, revealing improved skin texture and stimulated collagen production.

Frequently Asked Questions

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun. There are three basic types of chemical peels:

  • Superficial or lunchtime peel: Alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid is used to penetrate only the outer layer of skin to gently exfoliate it. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and rough skin as well as to refresh the face, neck, chest or hands.
  • Medium peel: Glycolic or trichloroacetic acid is applied to penetrate the out and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration. It also can be used to smooth rough skin and treat some precancerous skin growths, i.e. actinic keratosis.
  • Deep peel: Trichloroacetic acid or phenol is applied to deeply penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged skin cells. The treatment removes moderate lines, age spots, freckles and shallow scars. Patients will see a dramatic improvement in skin appearance. 

Why would you use a chemical peel anyway? There are hundreds, if not thousands of skincare products on the market to deal with almost every skincare concern. So is a peel really necessary? Most skincare products send ingredients to the surface level of your skin. These can work over a long period, but the results may not be as expected. That said, chemical peels treat several conditions, which include:

  • Acne and Acne Scars: Some skin care products can clear our acne but is powerless to stop some of the scars left behind. A chemical peel can help break up and remove acne scarring.
  • Wrinkles and fine lines: Over time, our skin stops producing collagen, which helps with elasticity. That lack of elasticity creates wrinkles and fine lines on the top layer of our skin when we frown. Chemical peels can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, by stimulating new collagen formation.
  • Uneven skin tones, also called Hyperpigmentation: Our skin is exposed to external and internal stressors like pollution, sun damage, hormones, or a skin injury. These changes can impact different parts of our face, giving the appearance of an uneven skin tone. A chemical peel can produce smooth, even skin.
  • Melasma: Melasma is a skin condition that causes dark patches on the cheeks, forehead, or chin. People with dark skin tones are more likely to have melasma. It is also sometimes a result of pregnancy, stress, or thyroid conditions. Chemical peels can even skin tones while you work on the underlying cause of melasma.

A chemical peel gives your skin a reset by removing the outermost layer of your skin. Think of a snake shedding its skin, revealing a new, beautiful layer.

While stronger peels do result in more downtime, they also produce more improvement. The main side effects of any chemical peel are redness and skin peeling. A more intense peel such as our TCA peel penetrates deeper, affecting more layers of skin which must then slough off. But this also removes more damage. When it comes to severe hyperpigmentation and sun damage, this stronger peel is often the treatment of choice. It can reduce your brown spots and redness while also smoothing out uneven, crepe texture and even giving your skin a bit of lift and/or plumpness. But if this is something that doesn’t work for you because you can’t afford to hide out for a couple of weeks, we can always recommend a series of lighter chemical peels. Our goal is to find the procedure or combination of procedures that will best deliver on your goals while also working within the constraints of your lifestyle.
