Chemical Peels Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels use special solutions of chemicals to target upper layers of damaged skin, reducing or eliminating the appearance of wrinkles, lines, scars, sun damage and other cosmetic defects. Peel solutions can vary in strength depending on the skin condition being treated. Peels can be used on the face, back, chest and other areas.

 

What kinds of issues can be treated with chemical peels?

Chemical peels can be used to treat an array of issues depending on the strength of the chemical solution and how long the solution remains on the skin.

  • lines, wrinkles and creases
  • freckling, age spots, melasma and other types of uneven skin discoloration
  • scars, including acne scars
  • sun damage and other environmental damage
  • textural issues including rough patches of skin

 

How is a chemical peel performed?

Chemical peels begin with a gentle cleansing of the skin, followed by application of the chemical peel solution. The solution is left on the skin for a specific period of time, then a neutralizer is applied or the solution is washed from the skin. During treatment, it's normal to feel some stinging or burning sensations as the solution works to loosen the upper layers of skin. Most chemical peel treatments take from 15 minutes to a half hour. Mild chemical peels can be performed during a lunch hour, leaving skin with a slightly pink, mildly sunburned appearance. Multiple mild peels performed over a period of several weeks are often recommended to achieve maximum benefits.

Deeper peels will need a longer recovery time and may cause some discomfort after treatment. During the days and weeks that follow, upper layers of damaged skin will slough off, revealing smoother skin beneath. Using moisturizers, sunscreen, and following other aftercare guidelines will ensure skin looks its best.
