Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back after a peel is smoother and younger looking. Chemical peels are used to treat acne, wrinkles, pigmentation, and scarring — typically on the face but also on the chest and back. Peels can be done at different depths — light, medium or deep — depending on desired results. Each type of peel uses a different chemical solution and can be used to treat various skin problems.

Depending on the issues you’re addressing, you’ll choose a peel in one of three depths:

  • Light chemical peel
    • A light (superficial) chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis). It can be used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone and dryness.
  • Medium chemical peel
    • This type of chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). A medium chemical peel can treat wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin tone.
  • Deep chemical peelLight chemical peel
    • A deep chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the mid to lower layer of your dermis. Your practitioner might recommend a deep chemical peel if you have deeper wrinkles, scars, or precancerous growths.

You’ll be lying face-up during the procedure, which should last no more than an hour to complete. The practitioner will then gently apply the chemical to your face or other areas that you want.

When the chemical of choice is applied to your skin, you can expect to experience the following sensations:

  • Tingling
    • The chemical applied will probably cause you to feel a little bit of tingling and itching, which are totally normal. Anything that feels painful should be communicated to the practitioner.
  • Heat or Cold
    • After the peel is applied, you might notice the temperature of your skin starts to change slightly, in either direction. Some people say their skin feels a little warmer, while other say their skin feels a little cooler. Either one of these is normal and just depends on the individual.
  • Taut Skin
    • Chemical peels help to extract any impurities in the skin. While that happens, you might feel a sensation of tightness, which is also normal as long as it’s not excessive.

Although most people experience peeling of their facial skin, not every patient notices visibly peeling after a Chemical Peel procedure. Lack of peeling is NOT an indication that the peel was unsuccessful. If you do not notice actual peeling, please know that you are still receiving all the benefits of the peel, such as: unclogging of pores, stimulation of collagen production, increased cell turnover, improvement of skin tone and texture, and diminishment of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

Post treatment care is crucial to safe healing of the skin and achieving the best possible results. It’s relatively simple, but you must take it seriously. It comes down to avoiding sunlight and heat for about 10 days, keeping the skin moisturized and covered with SPF, and resisting the urge to pick at the peeling skin.
