What Is A Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that resurfaces the skin using a carefully prepared chemical solution. The treatment is often used to improve the appearance of damaged skin, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damaged skin
- Acne-prone skin
- Brown spots and uneven skin tone
Our chemical peel treatments are typically performed in less than an hour and in the comfort of our office, allowing you to return home, resume work or school, or continue your normal day without any downtime.
Every person is different, which means there’s no one-size-fits-all treatment for your skincare needs. During a consultation, we will determine the best type of peel for your personal situation and desired goals.
How Does It Work?
Once the chemical peel solution is applied to the skin, the top layer of skin is removed (along with any dead skin cells) and the next layer of skin is allowed to develop, eventually replacing the previous, damaged layer. This results in glowing, firmer skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and less discoloration.
Depending on your condition and goals, we can either apply a light, medium, or deep chemical peel. We use different combinations of salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and other chemicals that are carefully chosen to treat specific skin types and conditions, all of which are perfectly safe for your skin.
Light chemical peels target the superficial layer of skin and are used to gently improve the appearance of acne scarring, uneven skin tone, and dry skin.
Medium chemical peels remove damaged skin cells from the epidermis and from parts of the dermis. They go deeper than light peels, which can be useful if the condition of your skin requires a more powerful treatment.
Deep chemical peels go even further and are used to treat more extensive wrinkles, skin texture issues, scarring, and more severe skin conditions. Generally, a deep peel doesn’t require repeat treatments to see results.
It’s essential to choose a treatment provider that has plenty of experience in administering chemical peel treatments, otherwise, you may risk adverse side effects and poor results.
Before your chemical peel procedure, we recommend avoiding prolonged sun exposure or shaving. You will also need to give your skin a chance to heal if you’ve had any other recent facial treatments. Depending on your situation, we may advise you to take antiviral medication, and use a retinol cream or bleaching agent, though we will discuss this with you as part of your free consultation.
Recovery And Post-Care
After a chemical peel treatment, you can expect your skin to be red, irritated, and in some cases swollen. This is completely normal and the severity will depend on the type of treatment you have received. Following a consistent post-care routine is crucial, and we will advise you on the best way to protect, cleanse and moisturize your skin.
Make sure you avoid scratching your face or picking at any scabs that form, as this may lead to scarring and prevent optimal results.
The treated areas will develop new skin over the coming weeks, after which time you can resume using your normal makeup and cosmetic products. In some cases, you may experience prolonged redness following a treatment, though this usually subsides after a few weeks.
Do chemical peels hurt?
Chemical peels can cause a slight stinging sensation and sensitivity, though the discomfort is usually tolerable for most patients. You can take painkillers if you wish to ease the discomfort completely.
How often should you get a chemical peel?
This depends on the severity of the peel you are having. Light peels can be done every month; whereas we recommend waiting at least 3-6 months if you’re having a medium or deep chemical peel.
Can I wear makeup after a chemical peel?
Again, this depends on the type of peel you are having. We recommend waiting at least 48-72 hours after your treatment before using any cosmetic makeup, though this could be longer if you are having a deeper treatment that requires a longer recovery.
