What are chemical peels

Chemical peels are treatments for the face, hand, and neck which address various skin problems. Using a topical chemical solution, this method sheds off damaged skin cells and reveals healthier skin underneath.

How do chemical peels work

The cosmetic procedure uses a chemical solution applied on the skin’s surface to peel off its top layers. After exfoliation, the skin reveals a smoother surface with lesser skin imperfections.

Depending on your chosen procedure, you may need to undergo a series of chemical peels to achieve the desired result.

Different types of chemical peels

There are various types of peels that address different skin issues.

Gentle chemical peels are available for people with mild conditions. There are also more intensive types of peels that perform deeper exfoliation for severe skin conditions.

Light chemical peels

A mild procedure that sheds off the outer layer of the skin. It can remove fine wrinkles and acne and address dryness and uneven skin tone.

Alpha Hydroxy acid (glycolic acid) Peels

A glycolic acid peel used an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) chemical for exfoliation. This method improves the skin’s health and appearance by addressing skin tone, complexion, and texture issues.

Beta Hydroxy acid (salicylic acid) Peels

Salicylic acid peels, commonly known as dermal peeling, are mainly used for acne treatment. When applied, it breaks down damaged cells that cause acne and pimples.

Jessner's Peels

Jessner’s peel breaks down the layer of the skin to make way for even skin tone and texture. This mild procedure is typical for melasma treatment and to lessen large pores.

Medium chemical peels

Medium chemical peels take off skin cells from the outer layer of the skin (epidermis) and the upper part of the middle layer of skin (dermis).

Trichloroacetic Acid Peels

This type of peel uses Trichloroacetic Acid that clears away dead skin cells. Upon application of the solution, your skin may have portions with blue color for several days after the peel. TCA peels treat skin discoloration, wrinkles, and scarring.

Deep chemical peels

Medium chemical peels take off skin cells from the outer layer of the skin (epidermis) and the upper part of the middle layer of skin (dermis).

Phenol Peels

A phenol peel penetrates the deeper level of the skin to extract dead cells and facilitate exfoliation. This procedure is standard for people with sun damage, skin discoloration, and acne scarring.
