Chemical Peel

A chemical peel, also known as chemical exfoliation or derma peeling uses a chemical solution to remove layers of skin, revealing the more youthful skin underneath. Chemical peels can reduce or improve fine lines and wrinkles, acne, scars, uneven skin colouring and other skin imperfections. Different chemicals determine the depth of your peel and type of skin condition treated.

 

A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure.

Depending on the issues you’re addressing
with the procedure, you’ll choose a chemical
peel in one of three depths:

Light chemical peel

A light (superficial) chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis). It’s used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone and dryness. You might have a light peel every two to five weeks.

Medium chemical peel

A medium chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). It’s used to treat wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin tone. You might need to repeat the procedure to achieve or maintain the desired result.

deep chemical peel

A deep chemical peel removes skin cells even deeper. Your doctor might recommend one for deeper wrinkles, scars or precancerous growths. You won’t need repeat procedures to get the full effect.

Chemical peels are most commonly performed on your face, neck or hands.

They can help reduce or improve:

Fine lines under your eyes or around your mouth and wrinkling caused by sun damage, aging and hereditary factors.

Certain types of acne.

Mild scarring.

Sun spots, age spots, liver spots, freckles, uneven skin coloring.

Precancerous scaly spots called actinic keratosis.

Rough skin, scaly patches, dull complexion.

Dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills.

Frequently Asked  Questions

What is a chemical peel, and how does it work?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin to remove the top layer of damaged skin, revealing a smoother, more youthful complexion.

Chemical peels are effective for treating a range of skin issues, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and hyperpigmentation.

When administered by a qualified medical professional, chemical peels are generally safe. However, potential risks and side effects exist, so a proper consultation is crucial.

Chemical peels come in varying strengths, including superficial, medium, and deep peels, each targeting different skin concerns and requiring different recovery times.

Most patients describe the injections as mildly uncomfortable but not painful. Topical anaesthesia or ice may be used to minimise any discomfort.

Most patients experience a sensation similar to a mild sunburn during the procedure. Pain is typically minimal and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Chemical peels can be adapted to different skin types, but individuals with darker skin may be more prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and should seek an experienced practitioner.

The number of sessions required and the longevity of results vary depending on the type of peel and individual skin factors. Superficial peels may require multiple sessions, while deep peels often provide longer-lasting results.

Possible side effects include redness, peeling, scabbing, and in some cases, infection or scarring. These risks are typically minimized when performed by a qualified provider.

Ideal candidates are individuals with specific skin concerns, good overall health, and realistic expectations. Consultation with a qualified dermatologist or skincare professional is crucial to determine candidacy.
