Chemical Peel Facial

Chemical peels can improve the skin’s appearance. From active acne and its scars to age spots, wrinkles, and sun damage, chemical peels can solve a lot of facial issues by causing your outer skin layers to lift off and flake away. Your chemical peel may contain one or more of a variety of acids, depending on your specific complaints, how long you’ve had them, and how deep within your skin layers they reside. 

In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it “blister” and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck, or hands. They can be used to:

  • Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth.
  • Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging.
  • Improve the appearance of mild scars.
  • Treat certain types of acne
  • Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills.
  • Improve the look and feel of skin.
  • Areas of sun damage may improve after chemical peeling.

Immediately following your chemical peel, you can expect your face to be red, tender, and somewhat swollen. We give you specific aftercare instructions according to the type of chemical peel you received, but in all cases you should avoid scratching, rubbing, and picking at your skin. 

It gets worse before it gets better.

During the first few days, you may notice some or all of the following effects:

  • Dryness
  • Flakiness
  • Discoloration
  • Breakouts

Of course, peeling is the signature characteristic of this effective skin treatment, so do expect to see some flaking. As your skin layers slough off, though, they take with them the age spots, wrinkles, and sun damage they contain.

The peel typically occurs between days three and four after your treatment. It’s best to let the peeling take place naturally, allowing it to flake away on its own without pulling at it.

After a light peel, skin typically heals completely in about a week, but medium and deep peels can take two weeks or more. While your skin is healing, make sure to protect it with a good broad-spectrum sunscreen and skip the makeup until we give you the green light.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Chemical peels can make a dramatic difference in the surface of your skin. They can smooth texture, improve fine lines, lighten pigment such as melasma, fade sun spots, and treat acne.

A superficial chemical peel will produce a slight burning, tingling sensation on the skin for 3-5 minutes. The mild discomfort subsides once the peel is neutralized. We provide a fan that patients can hold close to their face during the peel which helps reduce any discomfort.

A superficial peel can produce some redness but it usually lasts less than 12 hours. Some superficial peels in patients with sensitive skin can produce mild redness for 3-4 days. After the redness, the skin may flake and exfoliate more than usual. Some superficial peels used for acne don’t exfoliate much at all, but rather leave the skin feeling tight for several days while oil glands and pores are shrinking.

A medium depth chemical peel requires downtime. The skin is very red like a sunburn and sensitive for 2-4 days. After the redness fades, the skin turns darker tan color and crusts. The peeling is similar to after a sunburn, but heavier. These type of peels require special lots of special moisturizer applied multiple times a day for 1-10 days. No makeup is recommended for a week. For the best results, a week of downtime should be expected.

After a chemical peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so wear sunscreen every day. It should say “broad-spectrum” on the label, meaning it protects against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. Also, it should be a physical sunscreen and be above SPF 30. Limit your time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and wear a wide-brimmed hat.

Chemical peel results vary from person to person and depend on several variables, including your age, the condition of your skin, the severity of the blemishes and discoloration, and the solution used. Most of our patients love their results and schedule a few follow-up sessions to achieve their ultimate goals.
