What Are Chemical Peels?


In the quest for radiant, youthful skin, Chemical Peels have emerged as a transformative solution for various skin concerns such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and signs of aging. This post will delve into the science behind chemical peels, the procedure, expectations, and candidate suitability. At our clinic, we offer a range of high-quality peels including Face Reality acne peels, Skinbetter Science AlphaRet 30 or 50 peels, and The Perfect Derma for face and body, tailored to meet individual skin needs.

The Science Behind Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels involve applying a chemical solution to the skin, promoting exfoliation and eventually peeling off the old, damaged layer of skin, revealing a newer, more revitalized layer beneath. This process stimulates the regeneration of skin cells, increases collagen production, and improves skin texture and tone. The types and strengths of acids used determine the peel’s depth and effectiveness, allowing for customization based on individual skin types and concerns.

The Procedure

Prior to the application of a chemical peel, a consultation is essential to assess skin type, concerns, and desired outcomes, ensuring the most suitable peel is selected. The skin is then cleansed thoroughly before the peel solution is applied. Patients might experience a tingling or burning sensation during application, which is normal and temporary. The peel is left on the skin for a predetermined period, after which it is neutralized and removed, or it may be left to self-neutralize, depending on the type of peel used.

What to Expect

Post-peel, patients may experience redness, tightness, and peeling or flaking, typically lasting a few days to a week, depending on the peel’s strength. It’s crucial to follow post-care instructions, avoid sun exposure, and use sunscreen regularly to protect the new layer of skin. The results include improved skin texture, reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and more even skin tone.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Individuals dealing with concerns such as acne, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles are typically good candidates for chemical peels. However, those with sensitive skin, certain skin conditions, or allergies should consult with a skincare professional to determine their suitability and discuss any potential contraindications.
