What are Chemical Peels?
We have medical-grade chemical peels available to men and women in Provo, UT at Xage Medical Spa. Our chemical peels, such as a SkinCeuticals Peel and The Perfect Peel, may provide you with numerous options. As an exfoliant, a chemical peel can clear away that damaged layer of skin causing your complexion to look dull and aged. Once your skin peels from this treatment, your skin will reveal a fresher, luminous layer on your face, neck, and décollatage (if applied).
Your skin can look healthier and more radiant after a chemical peel by our master aestheticians at Xage Medical Spa. You can consult with our board-certified physician, Dr. Stuart B. Porter, about your skin issues to see if a chemical peel is right for you. We offer chemical peel treatments to assist in resolving skin irregularities like scars, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven patches, hyperpigmentation issues, and more.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Can I have a Chemical Peel?
Receiving the advice of a cosmetic professional is the first part in the journey to smooth, healthy skin. A team member at Xage Medical Spa can evaluate your skin during an exam in our Provo, UT office before choosing a chemical peel treatment for the best results. Chemical peel patients, of both genders, typically have visible problems on their skin such as scars, rough patches, flaky skin, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, sun spots, and more. We will recommend different types of peels to fit your needs and concerns.
OUr Chemical Peel Technique
On the day of your appointment at Xage Medical Spa, we will have you lie down in a comfortable position to administer your peel. Your chemical peel can be administered by an aesthetician in 30 minutes. We will ensure your skin is cleaned before applying the personalized solution to your face, neck, and/or décollatage. We will brush the solution onto your face and let it soak in for an appropriate amount of time, which will be determined during your treatment planning. Next, we will clean the peel off your face and put on a neutralizing agent (if necessary). You are encouraged to bring sunscreen and/or a hat to wear outside after the treatment to avoid sun exposure because your face will be sensitive to sunlight.
After Your Peel appointment
Depending on the type of chemical peel you receive, you can expect your skin to itch and peel for several days to a couple of weeks. If you had a light, superficial peel, then your recovery time will be minimal. When medium-to-deep chemical peels are applied to your skin, it may take weeks to recover. Dr. Porter or a member of his team will go over how to care for your face during your consultation. Make sure to:
- Moisturize your facial skin
- Apply sunscreen as needed
- Avoid going out into direct sunlight
Please keep in mind that no matter how much your skin itches throughout the healing process, it's not a good idea to pick the skin off because doing so could cause scarring.
