Preparing for your chemical peel

Depending on your needs, Retin-A—a prescription medication derived from Vitamin A—may be used to pre-treat the skin. This thins out the skin’s surface layer, allowing the solution to penetrate more deeply and evenly. Hydroquinone, a lightening agent, is sometimes used as well if you have blotchy skin areas or pigmentation problems. You may need to spend several weeks in the pre-treatment phase before your actual peel.

What to expect during treatment

Most chemical peels are performed in-office at our medical spa, with our experienced licensed medical aesthetician. Anesthesia is not required for most of our peels, which only cause only a slight stinging sensation during application.

First, the skin is thoroughly cleansed. Next, we will apply the selected peel formula to your cleansed facial skin; this process  usually takes no more than 10 to 15 minutes. Any stinging sensation you feel as the peel solution is applied will quickly pass. Depending on the strength of the peel, periodic treatments may be necessary until the desired effects are achieved.

After your chemical peel

After a peel, it is common to experience some temporary flaking or scaling, redness and dryness of the skin. Stronger or deeper peels may also cause some swelling. You may need to arrange for someone to drive you home and help you out for a day or two if you are having a deeper peel.

Downtime varies depending on the type and depth of the peel. Lighter peels (i.e., lactic acid or glycolic acid) may require no downtime at all, while patients may need several days of downtime following a medium peel, such as a Ultra Jessner’s or stronger TCA peel.

It is essential that you follow post-treatment instructions. Protecting your skin from the sun is essential following any peel. Our skincare team can recommend a broad-spectrum sunscreen that will protect your skin without irritation or a greasy feel.

When will I see results?

Improvements from light peels may be very subtle at first. You may detect a healthier glow to your skin. With continued treatments, you will notice a general improvement in the texture of your skin. After a stronger peel, your skin will be noticeably smoother and your complexion will be improved, with fewer fine wrinkles, fewer blemishes and more even-toned skin. Your results will be long lasting, although not immune to the effects of aging and sun exposure.

What are the risks of chemical peels?

Chemical peels are a normally safe and popular way to treat facial wrinkling and fine scarring. While complications are uncommon, you can help ensure a successful outcome by choosing a provider well-trained in chemical peeling techniques, and closely following pre- and post-treatment instructions. Patients with liver, kidney or heart ailments, need to make their cosmetic surgeon aware of them. You should also tell us about any food or substance allergies you have, as certain peels may contain similar ingredients.

Although there are peels of varying strength levels to fit almost anyone, it is still important to consider your skin type. The best candidates are usually those with fair, thin skin. Deeper chemical peels are usually not recommended for highly pigmented skin, such as Asian, black and Mediterranean, or oily complexions.
