What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic service that can improve the appearance of your face, neck, or hands. A chemical solution containing acids or enzymes is applied to remove dead cells, which lift away during treatment or gradually peel off. Once this happens, healthy new skin cells rise to the surface.

Chemical peels are used to speed up the natural skin renewal process and treat conditions such as:

  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Laxity
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Uneven texture

Chemical peels also improve the absorption of skincare products. By removing the barrier of damaged cells, these treatments can increase the effectiveness of your at-home regimen.  Chemical peels may be combined with laser treatments for a more dramatic result.

What to Expect After a Chemical Peel

Depending on the type of chemical peel, you may experience mild skin reactions as your skin goes through the renewal process. Certain formulas may result in some peeling, redness, or swelling. Patches of discoloration may appear more pronounced as they rise to the surface before revealing new skin. These reactions are normal, requiring only manageable aftercare and, in some cases, a small amount of social downtime.

Several days to weeks after your peel, you should notice a visible change in the look of your skin. The texture will likely be smoother. The concerns targeted during treatment may look less pronounced. Results from a chemical peel are relatively long-lasting, though patients tend to enjoy the most significant benefit by scheduling follow-up sessions.
