Everyone wants to have smooth, youthful-looking skin. But how can you get that fresh, dewy look without years of strict skincare routines or extensive surgery?

Chemical peels! Chemical peels are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that can give you a positively glowing face.

This holiday season, a chemical peel from Revive Med Spa is also a great gift idea. You can give your beauty treatment-obsessed friend or family member the best present with lasting results—or treat yourself!

Keep reading to learn why chemical peels make a perfect holiday present!

What Are Chemical Peels?

A chemical peel is an exfoliating skin treatment for the face. It’s performed by a medical aesthetician, as it’s more intensive than the kind of facial you may get at a spa from a regular aesthetician.

Our medical aestheticians have extensive medical training, so they can ensure that the whole chemical peel treatment is as safe as possible! The treatment involves applying a chemical solution to the face that dissolves the cells that bond layers of skin to each other.

The solution causes layers of skin to peel off from the face, revealing the fresh layers underneath and removing blemishes from the removed layers of skin in the process.

What Are the Different Chemical Peel Options?

There are different options for chemical peels. These different options peel off more or fewer layers of skin, depending on what kind of chemical compound is used.

The stronger the compound, the deeper the treatment. Deeper treatments are more intensive and require a longer recovery, but they can also treat more extensive skin unevenness from wrinkles and scarring.

The chemical peels that we use at Revive Med Spa are:


The Skinceuticals chemical peels use a blend of acids, including salicylic acid and lactic acid, to exfoliate the skin. They offer light to medium depth peels suitable for basic resurfacing on many skin types.

ZO Stimulator Peel

This peel from ZO Medical combines salicylic acid, lactic acid and resorcinol to stimulate skin renewal and reduce signs of damage. It provides a deeper treatment compared to lighter peels.

ZO 3 Step Peel

A more intensive “three step” peel system from ZO Medical that produces longer lasting results. It uses a potent combination of ingredients for advanced resurfacing.

VI Peels

The VI Peels are our newest peels. The VI Peel contains a powerful mix of acids, including TCA, retinoic acid and phenol for dramatic improvement in skin tone and the appearance of melasma. Safe for using on both the face and body.

Results that Speak for Themselves

Chemical peels can make your face appear significantly smoother and more youthful. After the peel, your skin will initially be a little reddened while the new skin is still growing.

For TCS treatments, you may also experience swelling along with other temporary side effects. But once your skin has fully healed, you’ll look like you have a fresh new face.

By removing skin that’s uneven in texture or color, wrinkled, or scarred, chemical peels allow your true face to shine through. Removing the skin also promotes new collagen growth, as the new skin isn’t fully developed yet and is still growing.

This is why it’ll be red for a while after getting the chemical peel. This new growth means healthier skin and better skin elasticity!

Poor skin elasticity is what causes facial wrinkles in the first place, so by getting a chemical peel, you can reduce your existing wrinkles and make it harder for new ones to form. More collagen also gives you a fresher, dewier overall appearance!

Facial blemishes are a normal part of life, especially when it comes to wrinkles. But when these features make you feel self-conscious, a chemical peel can help you regain your confidence by revealing your ideal look without adding anything. Chemical peels just allow your real self to come to the surface!

A Perfect Gift

Cosmetic treatments can make great gifts. If you know anyone who’s wanted to try a chemical peel or has tried them in the past and wants a similar treatment or a more intensive, deeper chemical peel, a chemical peel from Revive Med Spa is the perfect present!

But don’t forget about yourself! You can drop a hint with your loved ones or go ahead and give yourself your own holiday present.

Spoil yourself a little this holiday season with some self-care and reveal a whole new you.

New Year, New Face

The holiday season is the perfect time for a chemical peel. You can start the new year fresh-faced.
