Types of Chemical Peels

A Mild Peel

A mild peel uses alpha-hydroxy acids to gently exfoliate and only targets the surface layers of the skin. This option is suitable for addressing wrinkles, acne, and dryness. Recovery time for a mild chemical peel typically varies from four to seven days.

A Medium Chemical Peel – Moderate Peel

For more profound effects on both the middle and outer layers of the skin – including treating wrinkles, acne scars, or uneven tones – a medium chemical peel with trichloroacetic or glycolic acid can be highly effective. a moderate peel usually requires five to seven days for recovery.

Deep Chemical Peel – Intense Chemical Peel

On the other hand, a deep chemical peel fully penetrates through the middle layer using phenol or trichloroacetic acid; it may be ideal for addressing more severe wrinkle lines and scarring. An intensive chemical peel may necessitate a minimum of two weeks for recovery.

Getting Ready for Chemical Peels

To prepare for a chemical peel, it is crucial to refrain from using products containing retinol at least 48 hours before the treatment. Instead, consider using a glycolic acid lotion as an alternative and avoid any exfoliation, waxing, or hair bleaching procedures.

If you want to improve your overall look and have minor flaws, chemical peels can be a suitable option for you. However, if you have a history of abnormal scarring, sensitive skin, or naturally dark pigmentation, this procedure may not be recommended for you. It is also advisable to postpone the treatment if you have recently taken Accutane within the last six months. Our team will assess your skin during the consultation and recommend the most appropriate type of chemical peel for your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do Chemical Peels Work

Chemical peels help patients achieve smooth and even skin by removing the top layer of skin, stimulating collagen production and renewing skin cells. Composed of acidic solutions, they react with dead skin cells to promote exfoliation and peel away the outer layer.

Do Chemical Peels Hurt?

Except for some temporary skin redness and a mild tingling sensation during application, pain is not commonly reported.

Are Chemical Peels Safe?

Chemical peel procedures are highly secure. During our complimentary consultation, we will have a thorough conversation about your present well-being and any prescription drugs you may be using to determine the most suitable peels for your needs.

When will I see the results?

The outcome may differ based on the number of sessions attended. Typically, after the treatment, your skin will flake and peel for approximately one week, resembling a sunburned and dry appearance. Once the old skin has shed off completely, you’ll reveal revitalized and radiant skin. The extent of peeling does not reflect how effective the treatment is. To achieve optimal results, it is recommended to undergo multiple treatments – usually at least three sessions.

How long will the results last?

This depends on how effective your medical-grade skin care regimen.
