What to Expect with a Chemical Peel


We have 6 different peel options at North Medical, and the strength of the peel used will depend on your skin and your desired outcome. During this treatment, we carefully assess your key concerns, then cleanse and tone before applying the peel. Afterward, we apply a moisturizer before finishing with SPF. As with all treatments, an SPF must be worn after treatment (and always!).


The Glow Peel is a multipurpose resurfacing treatment that combines the powers of salicylic acid (7%), lactic acid (7%), resorcinol (7%), soy amino acids, and yeast-derived oligopeptide for a deeper peel. To get straight to it, our Glow Peels target the signs of aging and hyperpigmentation with some manageable downtime. We typically suggest this treatment to people who want to address issues like hyperpigmentation, fine lines, exfoliation, and overall rejuvenation.

Treatment Options

We have combination treatments and pricing available for face, neck, and décolleté. Our Client Care team can happily assist with requests.

Your Questions

Does a Chemical Peel Hurt?

Chemical Peels can provide a little bit of spice to the skin, but rest assured your skin care professional will check in on you at every step of the treatment to ensure you are more than comfortable.

How long is the treatment?

Both our Classic and Glow Peels are 60 minutes in total. This includes 45 minutes of treatment and 15 minutes built-in for a post-treatment review. 

Is there any downtime after a Chemical Peel?

Our Classic Peels generally do not require social downtime.  If you are working on acne management, there may be some purging, but we are here to guide you through the process.

Our Glow Peels start to activate 3-5 days post-treatment, where you will see shedding of the skin. You will be provided with a post-care kit to keep the skin hydrated and nourished, and following the instructions of your skincare professional will lead to incredible results.

When will I see the results?

Our Classic Peels deliver immediate, glowing results. Award-winning results are best delivered with a series of peels, which is why our package is a great option. 

Our Glow Peels will deliver immediate glow and clarity, however best results come 7-10 days post-treatment and you will see even better results with 2-3 consistent treatments.

What can I add onto this treatment?

We love pairing our Chemical Peels with our Dermaplaning Treatment Booster to accelerate even more cell turnover, and to leave you with dewy, smooth skin!

Our Celluma Treatment Booster is another great option to add-on to your Chemical Peel, either during or post-treatment!

How can I maintain my results at home?

We always recommend having a solid home-care routine to support all the results we achieve in-spa and to maintain your glow until we can see you again! 

Can I modify or cancel my package?

Please be advised that all our service packages are non-transferable and non-refundable. Each package holds an expiration date of one year from the date of purchase. This ensures that you have ample time to enjoy the included services and experience the full benefits of our offerings. Should you have any questions or require further information, our team is always available to assist you.
