How Chemical Peels By Innova Wellness Spa Work
Chemical peels are designed remove the outermost layers of the skin, via is what we call, “controlled injuries.” It’s a great way to jumpstart your skin’s natural collagen production process. First, we’ll clean the skin with a special dermatologist-grade cleanser, followed by a scrub application which will remove outer layers of the dermis (also called stratum corneum). This chemical works to break down dead skin cell bonds, which makes dead skin peel and flake off. Chemical peels are available at various depths, which we’ll explain below.
Chemical Peels Treat the Following Skin Conditions:
- Fine lines
- Skin wrinkles
- Minor scarring
- Blotchy skin patches
- Sun damage
- Acne lesions / Acne scarring
Types of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels can be performed at various depths for different results.
Light chemical peels — This is the most gentle type of chemical peel and can be done multiple times; some patients have the procedure done every 6-8 weeks to stimulate new collagen production. We’ll only remove the top-most layer of the skin. With this treatment, your skin will look brighter and more radiant instantly, minimizing fine lines and minor wrinkles, as well as mild acne scarring and abrasions.
Medium chemical peels — This type of chemical peel offers a more dramatic result using trichloroacetic acid (TCA), which soaks deeper into the skin, treating issues such as more intense sun damage, hyperpigmentation, skin discoloration, and some forms of deeper wrinkles. Medium chemical peels come with some amount of recovery time attached. The face might swell, become itchy, and experience redness. Skin will go back to normal in about a week, at which point you’ll enjoy desirable results.
Deep chemical peels — These are obviously the strongest, deepest peels offered. Also called phenol peels, they can only be done once, because they penetrate to the deep dermal layers of the skin. Deep peels can provide amazing skin resurfacing results, addressing even the most advanced skin conditions. Recovery time can often be weeks and you may experience redness for longer. Consult with a specialist if you have a darker complexion or have experienced heart problems in the past, because you may not be the best candidate for a deep chemical peel.

Dr. Phillips is a sculpture! I met with him for a consultation for Y-Lift. He analyzed my face carefully and discussed what I should expect during and after the procedure. I was fearful of the pain factor but it was pain free thanks to his expertise. I cannot believe the transformation in my face. My jowels are no longer. As a Canadian resident I was very surprised the procedure would be conducted by a Dr. Unless you are having plastic surgery you do not see a Dr. for cosmetic procedures. An incredible experience and I could not be happier with my results. Thanks Dr. Phillips.
Had a wonderful experience at the Winter Park location yesterday. The business is beautifully decorated, very clean, modern, and refreshing... everything you want in a spa. The staff was friendly and professional. I am looking forward to returning next month!

It was my first time ever receiving Botox and I came here to remove my forehead wrinkles. The results turned out amazing! Within 3 days, the wrinkles were completely gone. I was a little nervous, but Dr. Phillips Nagsuk made me feel extremely comfortable. Not only were the services, staff, and prices great, but the place it self was extremely clean. I will definitely be coming back here for any other fillers I desire in the future!
