Advantages of Chemical Peels

 Chemical Peels help treat and address skin conditions that affect the superficial layer of the skin. They provide a chemical exfoliation of the skin and can be customized to any skin type and many different skin concerns. The results are fresher, glowing skin.

Chemical Peels may be used to treat acne, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and superficial melasma. 

Chemical Peels are also effective for “anti-aging” and maintenance of healthy skin and the peels can be modified to suit all skin types and most skin conditions .


A chemical peel can be used to treat various skin problems. 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 can be used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone and dryness. You might have a light chemical peel as often as every two to five weeks — depending on your desired results.
  • Medium chemical peel. This type of chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). A medium chemical peel can treat wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin tone. You might repeat a medium chemical peel after two  months to maintain results.
  • Deep chemical peel. A deep chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the mid to lower layer of your dermis. Your doctor might recommend a deep chemical peel if you have deeper wrinkles, scars or precancerous growths. A deep chemical peel can only be performed once.



Usually what I refer to as a series. For instance, if I am trying to treat acne scarring, I  might recommend somewhere between four and six peels done at about a month apart. If  I am treating someone who just has some very light sun damage, the treatment may consist of  two or three peels a month apart. If  doing a light superficial peel, you are going to have awesome-looking skin right away. You won’t have any visible peeling or flaking. After the first couple days the microscopic skin sheds, you’ll notice a brighter complexion and better texture. It’s going to help with fine lines, but it’s a gradual period. For a deeper peel, you should expect a little bit of redness and sometimes you can get a tiny bit of swelling, but it’s usually not aggressive. Usually in about three to four days the skin starts flaking and that can last up to a week. In both instances, the skin looks great and continues to improve week after week for about three or four weeks. When you’re dealing with deep wrinkles and acne scars, collagen stimulation isn’t something that happens overnight, which is why we have to wait until your skin slowly heals and see the results before we administer another peel. 


CHEMICAL PEELS  aren’t going to remove or reduce blood vessels or capillaries on the skin. They’re not going to affect any type of raised scarring, so if someone has keloid scarring, they’re not going to remove it. They also don’t work as a face lift, but they will make your skin smoother, they will fade brown spots, it could help uneven skin tone from sun damage, it could make your skin look fresher and younger, and it’s something you can do on a regular basis.
