The Basics of Chemical Peels

Now more than ever, men and women alike are enjoying the benefits of making chemical peels and Facials the new staples of their skincare routines. Chemical peels are effective treatments to reduce fine lines, fade away mild scars and certain types of acne; correct skin discoloration and imperfections; and refresh skin texture and color in areas such as your face.

During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied, which causes the top layers of skin to shed painlesslyA Consultation is Best to determine which treatment would best suit you. We will tailor a regimen that will help achieve your concern. Treatments are adjusted based off personal, and environmental lifestyle. *No Extractions during Treatment*

Types of Peeling agents we offer:

  • Glycolic acid

  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)

  • Salicylic acid

  • Lactic acid

Depending on the depth of the peel (superficial, medium or deep), the newly-revealed skin appears smoother, less wrinkled, and more even in tone.

During a chemical peel, most patients feel warmth or heat that may last about five to 10 minutes. You also may require more than one treatment to achieve desired results.

 

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is an acid solution that is applied to the skin. It dissolves the outermost layer of skin cells, which then peels off over the following days to reveal the fresher, younger layer below. Peels are very effective in treating a large range of skin concerns such as aging, sun damage, acne, scarring, improving skin brightness, texture and evening out skin tone.

Peels can be light, moderate or deep. Light peels require no down time from work and your normal activities. Moderate peels may require a day or two, and deep peels can require a week or more of down time to allow the skin to fully heal. Estheticians who are not working in a medical setting perform light to moderate peels only. Deep peels can only be performed by a physician, or under a physician’s supervision, for your safety.

 

Preparing for treatment

Most skin colors and types can benefit from chemical peels, though it is best to check with your esthetician about which peel is right for you. If you’re taking acne medication, Retin-A or Accutane, talk to your esthetician and/or doctor about stopping the medication before and during treatment to avoid complications. Your esthetician can review any other contraindications with you prior to your treatment to determine if a chemical peel is right for you. The appropriate skincare products for pre/post Home-care will be giving to you at the skin consultation or mailed to you. Be sure to answer all questions honestly and completely on your consultation form prior to your peel.

 

What to expect during a chemical peel

The skin is cleansed and a prep solution will be applied to remove surface oils and allow the peel to penetrate the skin evenly. Any sensitive areas that cannot be treated will be protected with a thin film of jelly. One or more chemical mixtures will be applied, such as glycolic acid (from sugar cane, good for exfoliation), TCA (trichloroacetic acid, good for discoloration), salicylic acid (good for acne), lactic acid (from milk, good for discoloration and hydration). The peel will be applied in 1–8 layers, depending on the depth of penetration intended. The acids react with the skin to produce a “controlled wound,” allowing fresh skin to regenerate and emerge. A tingling, prickly or hot sensation is normal. Most peels remain on the skin only a few minutes and are closely watched by the esthetician. A fan may help you stay more comfortable. After some peels, a neutralizing solution is applied to stop the peel. Other peels are self-timed and stop on their own.

 

After the peel

Depending on the type of peel, your skin may begin to feel dry and look shiny and tight or it may be a mild to severe sunburn-like reactions that may last a few days after your treatment. Your peeling maybe as minimal as some lite flaking a full face shed depending on the chemical peel. Flaking or Peeling usually lasts from 3-7 days and can be longer , depending 

Medium-depth and deep peels may cause swelling and blisters. These blisters may break, crust and turn brown, and then cause the skin to peel off. Deeper peels take seven to 14 days or longer to heal completely.

It is vital to only use the products you are sent home with and to apply sunscreen - no matter what. Adhere to all aftercare instructions and do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. 

 

Home care after a chemical peel

I will supply you with products to use before and after your peel. These will soothe and nourish your skin, and aid in its recovery. Usually it is best to avoid makeup during this time, to allow the skin to heal and function without interference. However, if you must wear makeup, I recommend tinted minerals. 

For maximum results, a series of peels is usually recommended, and may be necessary for treating challenging issues such as hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and deeper wrinkles.
