What are body peels?
Body peels are just like chemical peels you use on your face except they are on your body. Body peels can be used on the chest, back, hands, buttocks, legs and feet! Touted as being a total-body do-it-all, body peels exfoliate the skin, which has a number of benefits.

What chemicals are body peels made of?
Skin of Color is more susceptible to acne because it tends to contain more sebaceous glands that are larger and produce more oil. It also typically has more skin shedding, increasing the likelihood of clogged pores. Acne Body peels can use one type of acid or a combination of acids, including alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA), beta hydroxyl acid (BHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), kojic acid and lactic acid derived from naturally occurring compounds found in plants and foods like milk, willow bark and citrus.
How long does it take to see results?
Many factors contribute to how fast your skin improves:
- How severe is the condition you are trying to improve? Example: extreme acne or a few pimples?
- What condition are you trying to improve (acne, sun damage, brow spots, fine lines, scarring)? Some conditions take longer than others to see results.
- What is the climate you live in? Is it dry, humid, hot or cold? Is it summer or winter?
- What is your skin tone (light skin, darker skin tone)?
- Is your skin oily or dry?
- Are you older or younger?
Typically people see and feel an improvement in skin texture and tone within one or two treatments. It will take longer if you have deeper skin concerns (significant sun damage/brown spots/fine lines) or significant acne. Celebrity Skin recommends a series of 6 treatments based 3 to 6 weeks apart, depending on the factors mentioned above.
Body peels are great just to maintain healthy, smooth and vibrant skin you already have. Those can be scheduled on an as-needed basis. It should be noted, on average, body peels tend to take a bit longer to slough off than facial peels do (10 to 14 days).
Just like your face, your body needs tender loving care, too!
