Be Summer Ready with Chemical Peel Facial Treatment in Downers Grove

By: Jakeyla Reed, DNP, APRN


As summer approaches, it's time to refresh and rejuvenate your skin. At Dr Diva Aesthetics in Downers Grove, we offer transformative chemical peel facial treatments that prepare your skin for the sunny days ahead. Say goodbye to dull, uneven skin and hello to a radiant, youthful complexion.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel  is a skin-resurfacing procedure that removes the outermost layers of the skin using a chemical solution. This treatment reveals new, healthier skin and helps address various skin concerns, such as acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture.

Types of Chemical Peels

At Dr Diva Aesthetics, we offer several types of chemical peels tailored to your specific skin needs:

Superficial Peels: These gentle peels use alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) like glycolic acid to lightly exfoliate the skin. Perfect for improving texture and tone.

Medium Peels: Utilizing trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or Jessner’s solution, these peels penetrate deeper to treat acne scars, fine lines, and moderate pigmentation issues.

Deep Peels: These powerful peels, often containing phenol, address severe wrinkles, sun damage, and deep scars for dramatic results.

Benefits of Chemical Peels

Rejuvenates the Skin

Chemical peels exfoliate the damaged outer layers of skin, promoting cell turnover and boosting collagen production. This process results in smoother, more youthful skin.

Reduces Acne and Scars

Chemical peels help unclog pores and reduce acne breakouts. They also diminish acne scars by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells.

Evens Skin Tone

Chemical peels lighten dark spots  and even out skin tone, addressing hyperpigmentation, sunspots, and age spots effectively.

Minimizes Fine Lines and Wrinkles

By stimulating collagen production, chemical peels help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making the skin look firmer and more youthful.

The Chemical Peel Process at Dr Diva Aesthetics


The first step is a thorough consultation with one of our skincare experts. We assess your skin type, discuss your concerns, and determine the best type of peel for your needs.


Before the treatment, your skin is cleansed to remove any impurities. A pre-peel solution may be applied to ensure even penetration of the peel solution.


The chemical peel solution is carefully applied to your skin. You may feel a mild tingling or warming sensation as the solution works to exfoliate your skin.

Post-Treatment Care

After the peel, your skin is neutralized and cleansed. You will receive detailed post-treatment care instructions, including the use of sunscreen and moisturizers to protect your rejuvenated skin.

Expected Results and Recovery

Recovery time varies depending on the type of peel. Superficial peels have little to no downtime, while medium and deep peels may require a few days to a week of recovery. During this time, expect some redness, peeling, and sensitivity.

Results are visible almost immediately after the initial healing period, with continued improvement over the following weeks. Your skin will appear smoother, clearer, and more radiant.
