Chemical peels are one of the most widely known non-surgical procedures for improving the look and feel of facial skin. Depending on each patient’s needs, Chemical Peel treatments are completely adaptable and can effectively address a variety of conditions.
Chemexfoliation, which is another term for Chemical Peel, uses a combination of chemicals, including a type of acid, to remove dead skin. The chemical solution is applied topically to the treatment area and left for a set period of time.
The skin will blister and peel away to reveal smoother, brighter, rejuvenated-looking skin underneath. There are a variety of chemical solutions which are used in Chemical Peels. Your doctor will choose the specific agent that is right for your skin during the consultation. Chemical peels have also been successfully used on the neck and hands.
Once you and your doctor have identified the Chemical Peel treatment that is right for you, you may be asked to prepare for your treatment by avoiding exfoliants or temporarily stopping medications which may affect the condition of the skin.
At your appointment, your Chemical Peel solution will be applied. Treatment lasts 60 to 90 minutes, and the method with which the chemical solution is applied varies. Depending on the chemical solution used, peeling may last anywhere from 3 to 10 days following treatment. Patients will want to use gentle products and sunblock following treatment to avoid irritation or damage to the new skin.
Superficial peels use milder acids to treat the surface of the skin only.
Medium peels penetrate deeper, reaching the middle as well as the outermost layer of skin.
Deep peels penetrate the deepest into the skin and offer the most dramatic results of all three Chemical Peel types.

Results from Chemical Peels may last anywhere from 1 month to years depending on the depth of the solution used. Superficial peels offer results which may last up to a couple of months. Medium peel results typically last anywhere from 2 to 6 months. And deep peels can offer results which may improve the condition of the skin for years.
Once the treated skin has peeled away, the bright new skin will have taken its place.
Chemical Peels can cause side effects such as discoloration, redness, swelling, small bumps, scabbing, scarring, or infection.
Chemical Peels are safe and effective for most patients, but some may be unable to receive this treatment depending on skin condition, medical history, medication, or pregnancy.
While over-the-counter chemical peels are widely available, there is no way to ensure the safe use of these products for everyone. In order to receive the safest treatment and best results, it is best to receive Chemical Peel treatment from a professional.
