What Is A Chemical Peel?

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are used to remove the superficial layer of the skin. One or more peeling chemicals are applied to the skin resulting in destruction of the superficial part of the skin which allows a new layer of skin lining to develop. It may help to remove black/white heads of pimples, superficial scars and superficial benign skin growths.

If your skin has been damaged by the sun or acne, or if you would like to reduce the appearance of fine lines or uneven pigmentation, you may benefit from chemical peels. Chemical peels are a safe and effective way to visibly improve the quality, texture and tone of your skin.

What can I expect during and after a chemical peel?

When the chemical peel agent is applied to the skin you may feel a warm sensation for a few minutes. Occasionally very slight to medium flaking in a few localized areas is seen for 1 to 3 days.
For deeper peels, the skin may turn brown, feel dry, flake and peel for a few days. For light lactic and glycolic peels you can return to work after the procedure without having to miss any time from work.

What must I do after a peel?

  1. Wash your face as usual but use a gentler cleanser.
  2. You may be asked to use a moisturizing cream prescribed to you by your clinician.
  3. Do not apply any skin medication or glycolic acid product during the entire time of healing or the skin will become irritated.
  4. Avoid sun exposure. Use a sun block every 3 hours beginning on the day after you have done the peel.
  5. Do not peel, prick, scrape or scratch the skin at any time.

How many treatments do I need?

To get best results peels have to be repeated. Most patients require 2-4 peels at 2 to 4 week intervals depending on the strength of the peel (light to aggressive) and it depends on the sun damage or results wanted. During your consultation your clinician will best decide which one is the right one for you.
