What Is a Chemical Peel

What Is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that employs a chemical solution to enhance the appearance of your skin. By carefully applying administered chemicals to your skin, it helps to rejuvenate and revitalize your complexion. Chemical peels are available in a range of depths and strengths, including:

  • Light Peels (Targets Thinnest Skin Cells):
    For overall rejuvenation and early signs of aging.
  • Medium Peels (Targets the Outer and Middle Layers):
    For uneven skin tone, moderate wrinkles, shallow scarring, and age spots.
  • Deep Peels (Targets Deep Dermal Layers):
    For scarring, deep age spots, facial creases, and precancerous growths.
How Does It Work?

How Does It Work?

Chemical peels include carefully selected acids to enhance your skin's pH (acidity) to approximately 3.8 (while skin normally has a pH of around 5.5). This effectively disrupts the bonds between dead and healthy skin cells, loosening the stubborn "glue" that holds dead skin in place. As a result, a gentle exfoliation of the dull outer layer occurs, revealing fresh and vibrant skin underneath. Moreover, this remarkable process stimulates the regeneration of new and healthier skin cells, rejuvenating your complexion from within while smoothing out fine lines.

What Conditions Does a Chemical Peel Treat?

With chemical peel, you can get rid of the following cosmetic concerns:

  • Mild to moderate acne
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sun damage
  • Mild scarring
  • Age spots and freckles
  • Melasma (brown patches)
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull complexion
  • Precancerous scaly spots (actinic keratosis)
  • Rough skin and scaly patches

Your aesthetician will work with you to determine the type and depth of the peel you need based on your skin conditions and desired goals. Nevertheless, remember chemical peels are not intended for sagging skin, deep wrinkles, or severe scarring.

Chemical peel effectively exfoliates the skin and removes the damaged outer layers, revealing new skin that is smoother, softer, and brighter.

The lasting duration varies depending on the depth of the peel. While the effects of lighter and medium peels last for 1-2 months and 2-4 months, respectively, deep peels are likely to last for decades and sometimes even a lifetime.

Though you may experience tightness, slight tingling, and changes in your skin’s temperature, chemical peels do not cause pain.

After a chemical peel treatment, it will take 7-14 days for your skin to heal.

We will begin your procedure by cleaning the treatment area thoroughly and applying the selected chemical solution using a brush or cotton-tipped applicator. After a while, we will remove the peels and apply a cool compress/lotion to soothe the skin.

While chemical peels cost $519 on average, the cost varies depending on the type and depth of chemical peels you are recommended.

  • Cleanse your skin with cool water, as hot water may cause inflammation.
  • Moisturize your skin regularly to promote healing while preventing irritation, bacterial infection, and redness.
  • Protect your skin from excess heat and sun exposure to prevent inflammation.

While chemical peels often cause common and temporary side effects, such as swelling, dryness, stinging sensation, and redness, sometimes, they may cause severe yet permanent side effects, including:

  • Lightening or darkening of the skin color
  • Kidney, heart, or liver damage
  • Scarring
  • Fungal or bacterial infections
