A Chemical Peels treatment, also known as Facial Peels treatment, is one of the oldest cosmetic treatments in the world that can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians. The treatment helps in maintaining smoother, more beautiful skin.
Three Treatment Types
There are three types of peels that are broadly classified based on strength: light, medium and deep. Each produced a different result. Chemical peels are designed to create an even and controlled shedding of skin exposing younger and healthier skin. Individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation can greatly benefit from chemical peels treatments.
New skin with improved texture, tone, color
Simply put, the chemical peel treatment involves using medical grade substances, such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), or phenol, to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin. By exfoliating the outer layers of dead skin, this treatment helps revealing a new skin layer with improved texture, tone, and color. The treatment is designed to peel away many visible signs of aging on the face, hands, neck, and chest. The treatment may also help acne sufferers keep their skin clear.
Chemical peels are becoming one of the most essential aesthetics and cosmetics treatments because they offer nearly immediate results and can be administered as an outpatient procedure. On average, the procedure takes about 45 minutes from start to finish. You should expect little on no downtime depending on the type of peel applied. Remember, this treatment is meant to remove the outer dead layer of your skin. So, you will experience peeling depending on the strength of the peel.
One of the easiest, most efficient and most affordable ways to enjoy immediate gratification of a fresh and healthier look is chemical peels. Peels are great at revitalizing and rejuvenating the face, neck, and hands. The treatment exfoliates the dead skin cells and, gently removes them from the top skin layer.
Chemical peels are called so because different kinds of acids and other chemicals are used to perform exfoliation. Not all chemical peels are alike; they are classified based on how deep they go in the skin.
The most gentile is the surface peel which doesn’t go deep in your skin and only affects the top layer. Surface peels are good for younger skin and rarely result in any downtime. For more mature skin, medium and deep chemical peels are recommended. They affect all thick dermis layer right down to the basal membrane. They require some downtime and can only be performed by a licensed, experienced medical provider. .
Chemical peels are highly recommended for those who want a healthier-looking and brighter skin with a smoother complexion. If you want to get rid of post-acne marks, pigmentation, or stretch marks, and also gain an overall rejuvenated look, then a chemical peels treatment is for you. A chemical peels treatment can also smoothen fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin firmness and elasticity.

What is the difference between Chemical Peels and Microdermabrasion treatments?
- Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical procedure that uses a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand the skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer.
- Microdermabrasion and mild chemical peels are considered similar treatments
- Aggressive deep chemical peels such as the phenol peel require much more recovery time than microdermabrasion
- Aggressive deep chemical peels use bleach, which changes the skin pigmentation, whereas microdermabrasion does not.
Recommendations after a chemical peels treatment:
- Not to pull or peel shedding skin to avoid scarring or rashes.
- Use a gentle cleanser to wash your face. Avoid scrubbing.
- Limit sun exposure for at least one week after the treatment and apply SPF 20 or higher facial sun protection.
- Avoid irritating your skin with sweat or with foundation during the days when the skin is peeling.
- Apply a light moisturizer to control flaking.
- Not to apply any other facial treatments for at least one week after the treatment.
- Not to use Retin-A, alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) products, or bleaching creams until the peeling process is complete and your face has fully recovered.
