What are Chemical Peels?

Dermatologists have been using chemical peels for decades to achieve improvement in skin tone, reduce lines and wrinkles, unclog the pores and remedy skin discoloration.

Our Bay Area chemical peels come in light, medium and intense formulations to achieve different levels of exfoliation, and each can be customized to your aesthetic goals as well as your comfort level. At Total Glow, we offer Cool Peel®; a new and different kind of chemical peel that is far superior to the others.

What is a Cool Peel®?

The Cool Peel technology was developed by the Environ skincare line to bring a revolutionary new non-invasive approach to market, replacing the traditional chemical peel. Most chemical peels are formulated with Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid or Trichloroacetic Acid, and work by untethering the outermost layer of damaged skin from the face so that when it is peeled away, it reveals a more youthful, pristine complexion. Old skin cells are discarded, and a healthier glow emerges. Superficial chemical peels generally have little downtime and are used for treating sun damage and fine lines, while deeper chemical peels are often used for acne.

Unlike traditional peels, which destroy and strip the skin, Cool Peel uses a special low pH formulation, preserving the epidermis as much as possible, and making the Cool Peel comfortable and cool when applied. Cool Peel is extraordinarily gentle yet extremely effective and is the only peel that does not destroy the skin’s natural protective barrier. In addition, the Cool Peel technology stimulates the skin’s collagen cells helping to repair damage due to aging and sun exposure. Our Palo Alto chemical peel is completely customizable to your needs and our Total Glow team will determine the perfect peel for your skin type after an in-depth consultation at our Palo Alto offices.

Who is a good candidate for a Cool Peel®?

Most healthy clients who are looking to shed damaged, blemish-prone skin can qualify for a personalized chemical peel at Total Glow.

Those who have recently taken Accutane, or who have a history of abnormal scarring may be referred to a different treatment. This treatment is also great for those with photodamaged skin or those with problem skin or excessive redness.

What will my recovery entail?

Do not apply makeup or pick at your skin after your session, and be sure to use sunblock when outdoors. We will follow up with you to ensure your recovery remains on track. Cool peel technology reveals more youthful-looking skin, and is a pain-free treatment with no downtime.

Chemical Peels
Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

The Cool Peel chemical peel gently exfoliates the uppermost damaged layers of your skin, leaving the protective barrier in place. A chemical solution is applied to your face to cause the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel. There are a variety of chemical peels available to treat your specific skin concerns.

What can I expect during the treatment?

Cool Peel is very gentle and safe for your skin—much less harsh than other chemical peels you will find elsewhere. You may experience mildly dry, red, or flaking skin for several or more days after your peel. The peel strength can be varied, allowing for a tailored approach. If you wish to learn more, schedule a consultation today for arguably the best chemical peels Bay Area has to offer.
