Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

A chemical peel is a nonsurgical treatment that uses medical-grade solutions to carefully remove the surface layer of your skin. Once the top layer of your skin sloughs off, it reveals the fresh tissue underneath. The new skin — untouched by cosmetics, environmental exposures, and sun damage — appears tighter, smoother, brighter, and more even than before.

What can chemical peels treat?

Chemical peels treat a wide range of common skin concerns, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Acne
  • Oily or dry skin
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Melasma
  • Mild scarring

A chemical peel rejuvenates the skin to improve its feel and appearance. Even if you’re satisfied with the overall appearance of your skin, a chemical peel may help you look younger and fresher.

What are the different types of chemical peels?

Dr. Rudnick performs many different types of chemical peels at Dazzling Dermatology, including:

Light

A light peel removes the surface layer of your skin. It minimizes the appearance of fine lines, uneven skin tone, dry skin, and certain types of acne. Light chemical peels once every month or two is ideal if you’re starting to show early signs of aging.

Medium

Medium peels exfoliate the top layer of your skin and part of the middle layer (dermis) to eliminate tone and texture abnormalities, fine lines and wrinkles, and acne scars.

What happens after a chemical peel? 

Protecting your skin is essential after a chemical peel to prevent complications, such as scabbing, scarring, or infection. After your chemical peel, you should avoid sun exposure and protect your skin with sunscreen whenever you’re outside. Your skin may look red and inflamed, similar to when you have a sunburn.

Depending on the type of chemical peel you choose, your skin should heal within 3-14 days. Deeper peels typically take longer to heal than lighter solutions.
