  Chemical Peels Q & A

Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are topical skin treatments that use a combination of natural acids to remove the outermost layers of your skin and reveal a layer of fresh skin cells. Peels come in a wide range of formulations and strengths, but there is a chemical peel to fit virtually every set of skin health needs. 

What issues can a chemical peel address?

Chemical peels accomplish numerous goals, including:

  • Reduction in wrinkles and lines
  • Improved skin tone and color
  • Softening of acne scarring
  • Reduced hyperpigmentation
  • A softened appearance of freckles, sun spots, or age spots
  • Overall textural improvement

One of the biggest advantages of chemical peels is the opportunity to achieve multiple outcomes with one simple procedure. 

What happens during a chemical peel?

The process begins with a thorough skin assessment and discussion about your treatment goals. Your practitioner then cleanses your skin to prepare for the peel application. 

The chemical solution is carefully smoothed over the surface of your skin, taking care to avoid your eyes. You may notice a mild stinging or burning sensation, but there’s no significant pain associated with a chemical peel. If you have especially sensitive skin, a topical numbing cream can help reduce sensation. 

After a set period of time, the peel solution is gently removed from your skin. Some peels include a layer of waterproof ointment or tape to protect the treated skin, while others only require careful protection from sun exposure. 

In the days following your peel, you may notice your skin flaking and peeling, similar to after a sunburn. As this shedding progresses, you’ll begin to see the effects of your peel and your newly radiant complexion.
