Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are an exfoliant treatment that removes the outermost layers of dead skin cells and impurities using a carefully balanced chemical solution. They’re a great option for people who want to achieve dramatic skin improvements but who aren’t good candidates for light-based therapies. 

Your practitioner has access to professional strength chemical peels in a wide range of formulations. You can choose to have a light peel to address minor surface imperfections and achieve a healthy glow or a deeper peel that delivers more impressive results. 

What kinds of skin issues can chemical peels improve?

Chemical peels are a versatile treatment that can correct multiple skin issues at once. Some of the areas where chemical peels offer improvement include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores 
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Discoloration
  • Sun damage
  • Dull skin

Chemical peels are most often done on the face, but you can also have chemical peels on your back, hands or other areas of your body. 

What can I expect after a chemical peel?

Your skin will likely feel tight and slightly irritated, and pink in the first few hours after a chemical peel. It’s important to protect your skin from sun exposure as it recovers from treatment. 

Your practitioner advises you on how to care for your skin after a chemical peel. Avoid harsh scrubbing or any products that might irritate your skin. Keeping skin moisturized is also important. 

Some people notice changes in the color of their skin, which can last a few weeks after a deeper peel. You might not notice any skin flaking or peeling away with mild peels, but medium strength or deep peels will usually trigger visible shedding of dead skin. You might see tiny flakes or larger sheets of skin. 

Take care to avoid picking or pulling at peeling skin or trying to “help” the process along. This can damage your skin and mar your results. 

While you might see immediate improvements, it takes several weeks to see the full results. Most people need a series of peels to achieve optimal results.
