What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels improve a skin’s appearance and can be performed on the face, neck or hands. The depth of chemical peel depends on the condition of the patient’s skin, which determines the length of procedure and recovery time.

How it Works

During this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin. This solution causes a chemical exfoliation and lifting of the skin which eventually peels off, revealing smoother, brighter skin. Most patients feel a burning or stinging sensation, which resolves by the time you leave the office. This treatment results in several benefits.

Benefits of a Chemical Peel:

  • Reduces fine lines
  • Improves skin imperfections caused by aging and sun damage
  • Softens the appearance of mild scars
  • Treats certain types of acne
  • Lightens brown spots
  • Helps treat and prevent melasma

What to Expect After Treatment

Depending on the type of chemical peel, a sunburn-like reaction can occur directly after treatment. Patients can expect three to seven days of peeling, redness and scaling of the skin.

It is important for patients to limit their time in the sun after a chemical peel due to the increased sensitivity of their skin. When out in the sun, patients should wear a sunscreen rated SPF 30 or higher.
