About Chemical Peels
Using the highest quality in chemical peel facial treatments, Sheer Beauty Medical Skin Care provides patients with several choices for a customized facial treatment with chemical solutions (such as salicylic, glycolic, trichloroacetic, and lactic acids) that give you more radiant skin. At our Inland Empire offices, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ben Childers offers chemical peel treatments that resolve skin abnormalities like scars, wrinkles, fine lines, rough patches, hyperpigmentation problems, and more. Chemical peels work by removing dead, damaged skin cells with the application of a customized peel on the skin that causes the top layer to slough off. When your skin recovers and starts to repair and rejuvenate itself, you may see a smoother, clearer complexion. A chemical peel facial is a nonsurgical way to make your complexion radiant and is appropriate for the neck and face. Schedule a consultation at our Riverside, Redlands, or Upland, CA locations for more information about our chemical peels.
Variations of Chemical Peels
In our Redlands, Riverside, and Upland, CA office, we perform chemical peels in different levels of strength (light, medium, and deep) to meet our patients' skin needs.
Light peels: You can receive a light peel, such as our Alpha Beta Treatment, during your lunch time and return back to your routine. This level of peel will remove the outer skin layers (the epidermis), giving your face a more radiant appearance and smoother texture. We usually recommend that you receive a light chemical peel about once a month for continued results. Also, our MicroPeel is our lightest peel and requires very little downtime.
Medium-depth peels: This level of peel reaches further into the skin, and patients generally decide to have this strength of facial treatment during an extended weekend. You may also need to ready yourself for increased discomfort during and up to one hour following the peel. Our medium-depth peels (such as the VI Peel, Obagi Blue Peel, Pumpkin Peel, and Vitalize Peel) are designed for patients who have deeper damage to their skin such as deeper lines and darker pigmentation problems. These treatments also have a moderate amount of downtime after the treatment.
Deep peels: The strongest of the three levels of peels is the deep chemical peel, and it does require the lengthiest recovery time. Our deep chemical peel, the Rejuvenize Peel, is an aggressive procedure that can leave your face swollen, itchy, and peeling for 2 – 3 weeks. Patients who get a deep chemical peel usually have age or dark spots, sun damage, prominent acne scars, and deep scars. Since this level of chemical peel is usually not pleasant to receive without a numbing agent, we can provide you with local anesthesia before your peel.
Getting the recommendations of a cosmetic specialist is the first part in the journey to healthy, smooth skin. A team member at Sheer Beauty Medical Skin Care will evaluate your skin during an exam in one of our offices before selecting a chemical peel for best results. Chemical peel patients, both women and men, should have visible concerns on their skin including acne scars, rough patches, flaky skin, discoloration, sun spots, fine lines, and more. We may recommend varying strengths of peels to match your needs.
Chemical Peel Reviews
"Came here for my terrible Cystic acne and met with Glenda who was amazing! She took some pre pictures and recommended a chemical peel and some skin care products. Desperate for some relief I followed everything she said and boy it worked!!! My skin improved after each treatment and I was in shock. She even offered to squeeze me in at short notice if I ever need a touch up which was lovely. I also purchased some of their makeup which wasn't my favorite but it was necessary to give my skin some rest. Would recommend to everyone!"- E.C. / Yelp / Feb 25, 2018

Plan Your Procedure
During your appointment at Sheer Beauty Medical Skin Care, we will have you lying in a comfortable position to administer your peel. A team member will ensure the skin is cleaned prior to applying the personalized solution to the face, neck, or both. We will spread the solution onto the skin and allow it to work for an appropriate length of time that will be determined in your chemical peel consultation. Next, we will clean the peel off your skin and apply a neutralizing agent. Patients should bring sunscreen and/or a hat to wear outside following the peel to protect against UV exposure.
What to Expect
Based on the strength of the chemical peel you receive, you should expect the treated area to peel and itch from several days to two or more weeks. We will explain ways to treat your face during your procedure. Please remember that no matter how badly your skin itches throughout the recovery, it's not good to peel the skin off. You may cause scarring to your skin.
