Chemical peels effectively remove the damaged outer layer of cells from your face allowing a fresh layer of skin cells to emerge naturally. This process of renewal offers a therapeutic experience and effective treatment.
A chemical peel at Reclaim Medspa has the dual benefits of offering both cosmetic and medical benefits. A chemical peel improves pore size, fine lines and targets hyperpigmentation, while medical benefits include improving acne, actinic keratoses, and benign keratoses.
The name “chemical peel” can be worrying if you are not familiar with the procedure and the benefits. But in essence, a chemical peel is an exfoliation. It is minimally invasive and is essential for facial rejuvenation.
We recommend chemical peels for optimizing skin health, and they are effective for all skin colors, types, and ages. After your chemical peel, you can expect to see an improvement in your skin’s condition, including a reduction in fine lines as well as improved smoothness and clarity.
A chemical peel is a twenty-minute treatment that is safe for all skin types. It can be combined with a facial or other treatments, which will result in a longer appointment time.
The two most common chemical peels are glycolic, and lactic acid peels and AHAs are the mildest option for chemical peels. They work for the treatment of fine lines, pigment concerns, and acne.
A light glycolic peel will last for between one and two months. Regular monthly chemical peels over a six-month period work well to target fine lines, skin tone, discoloration, and sun damage. After the series is completed, maintenance peels can be scheduled as required.
A light peel has little to no downtime and can be scheduled during a regular day as you will be able to return to work or your daily activities immediately after. There may be some redness and photosensitivity, so it is recommended to avoid the sun and wear a high factor sunblock for a few days after the treatment.
There may be some tingling or tightness, but chemical peels are not painful. After the appointment, your skin may be sensitive, so avoid direct sunlight and do not exfoliate for forty-eight hours.

Reclaim MedSpa is my favorite place to unwind. Elena the founder of Reclaim MedSpa has worked absolute magic on my skin. I came to her with broken out/congested, red, rough, irritated skin and my skin today (only a few months later) is clear, soothed, smooth and glowing. I’m forever grateful to Reclaim MedSpa for giving me the skin I’ve always dreamed of.— Melissa Formeister
Elena from Reclaim medSpa is very knowledgeable about a large variety of beauty treatments and works with each client to customize a plan that’s right just for them. I’ve been especially happy about my results with Cool Sculpting. Elena took wonderful care of me during my treatments and went above and beyond to ensure I have a good experience at the Spa, as well as fantastic results. I’ve since gone back for multiple other services and will continue to look to Elena for advice and guidance on all my skin care and fast loss needs.— Maggie
Dr. Shapiro and his team at Reclaim MedSpa have given me my youth back. I’ve had PRP and used their Korean shampoo to help give me back my hair. It’s been thinning for the last few years. The combination of suggestions and treatment from Dr. Shapiro is helping my hair grow back and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’ve also had the CO2 laser treatment and at 70 years old It took at least ten years off my skin. Amazing!— Peggy Formeister
