What We Know About Chemical Peels

Chemical peels improve the tone and texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers with a chemical solution. When you put custom peels on your skin, the acids and vitamins break down your skin’s top layer, revealing the smoother, younger skin underneath.

Depending on how you want your skin to look, you can make these solutions in different strengths to treat various skin problems. A chemical peel, on the other side, also known as chemexfoliation or derma peeling, employs a chemical solution to enhance the appearance of the skin. 

In this procedure, a chemical solution is given to the skin, causing trauma or harm to the layers of the skin. The skin layers eventually peel away to reveal younger skin. Typically, the regenerated skin is smoother, has fewer creases and wrinkles, a more uniform hue, and a brighter complexion.

What Can This Treatment Cure?

Chemical peels cure or improve the look of certain skin disorders by enhancing the tone and texture of the skin. This method is most frequently applied to the face, neck, and hands. 

They can aid in reducing or enhancing sun damage, aging, wrinkling, and other forms of acne. You and your dermatologist will select the depth of your peel. This selection can vary based on the condition of your skin and the desired treatment outcomes.

Chemical peels do not effectively treat sags, bulges, deep scars, deep facial lines, or wrinkles. If these are your worries, you should consider additional cosmetic surgery procedures like laser resurfacing, a facelift, brow lift, eye lift, or fillers. 

Let’s dig in more profound about the treatment Chemical Peels can cure. 


A chemical peel might make a small scar on your face look and feel less noticeable. The professionals at our clinic look at the size and depth of your spot and make a mixture of chemicals just for you based on what they find.


Chemical peels can make fine lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet less noticeable by removing the top layer of skin to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin underneath. The process helps cells grow back and makes more collagen, which may keep wrinkles at bay.

Sun Damage

You may have spent too much time in the sun or skipped sunscreen to get a golden tan this summer. If the sun damage from those tans is starting to show, a chemical peel could fix some of the damage.

Age spots, Freckles, and Melasma

Chemical peels are great for getting rid of small spots on your skin. It can help get rid of freckles and age spots.

Melasma, those brown spots that can show up on your face over time, can also be treated with chemical peels. The chemical peel process works well on this hyperpigmentation, the mask of pregnancy by women expecting.

Kinds of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are made to help with a variety of skin problems. They get rid of dead and damaged skin cells to get healthy new cells to grow. This makes your skin look clearer, softer, and younger.

There are chemical peels that are mild, medium, and deep. The results of these peels range from mild to more dramatic. Each has a different mix of chemicals to treat things like acne or damage from the sun.

You’ve probably heard of some or most of the chemicals in each type of peel. Some of the skincare products you use at home to clean and moisturize your skin usually have one or more of these chemicals in smaller amounts.

In different types of peels, the main chemicals used are:

  • Glycolic acid/alpha-hydroxy acid
  • Trichloroacetic acid
  • Phenol (carbolic) (carbolic)
  • Retinoids
  • Salicylic acid/beta-hydroxy acid

So what kind of chemical peel do you want? It depends on the skin problem or condition you want to fix, your skin type, and how strong a chemical peel you need. 

The best thing to remember is that chemical peels should always be done by a licensed and experienced master aesthetician, just like all other beauty treatments and procedures. 

Also, depending on the chemical peel you get, your skin may be red, irritated, and blister for several days to a week after the procedure. 

Most of the time, you won’t need to wear a bandage after a mild chemical peel, but you should still give your skin enough time to heal and recover.

If you want the best results from a chemical peel before a big event like a wedding, vacation, or job interview, schedule it at least a few weeks in advance. 

For a superficial peel, alpha-hydroxy acids are used in mild chemical peels to target the top layer of your skin. Soft and deep peels use glycolic acid and trichloroacetic acid to reach the middle layer of your skin and remove dead skin cells.
