A Chemical Peel is an anti-aging treatment with a host of benefits that include exfoliation, but it also builds collagen, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, boosts radiance, shrinks pore size, diminishes dark spots, clears the complexion, and can even help with rosacea. A chemical peel is a form of exfoliation that uses a chemical solution to remove dead skin cells from the top layer of skin. Treatment time for a chemical peel can take up to 30 minutes and the peeling process can last anywhere from three to five days after. During the peeling process, the dead skin cells shed or flake off, eventually revealing fresh, new skin underneath.

Benefits of Chemical Peel:

  • Improving the skin’s color, clarity, tone and texture

  • Stimulating new collagen and healthy skin cell growth, resulting in a radiant complexion

  • Reducing discoloration caused by sun damage

  • Helping to clear up breakouts

  • Smoothing away the look of fine lines and wrinkles

  • Increasing hydration of the skin

  • Addressing visible skin imperfections and superficial scars

  • Enabling skincare products used at home to be more effective because a peel can remove several layers of skin build-up and congestion, allowing products to penetrate deeper into the skin

 

How is the Chemical Peel Performed?

The skin is thoroughly cleansed with an agent that removes excess oils, and the eyes and hair are protected. One or more chemical solutions, such as glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or carbolic acid (phenol), are applied to the skin.

Before the procedure:

  • Avoid tanning and direct sun exposure for 2 weeks before each treatment.

  • Apply topical products (such as hydroquinone) as instructed before treatment to prepare the skin.

  • Do not use any products containing retinoids (such as tretinoin) 1 to 2 weeks before treatment, unless your physician tells you differently.

  • If you have been prescribed oral antibiotics or an oral antiviral medicine, you should begin taking those at least 24 hours before the procedure.

  • Peel areas must be free of any open sores, lesions, or skin infections.
