What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are a type of skin resurfacing treatment that can address various skin concerns. By applying a chemical solution to the skin, old skin peels away, and collagen is refreshed, allowing new and more refined skin to surface. Peels are categorized based on their depth of skin penetration:

Superficial Peels

  • Use mild acids like alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA)
  • Exfoliate only the outermost layer of skin to improve the appearance of mild skin discoloration and refresh the face, neck, chest, or hands
  • Frequent treatment may be necessary to maintain results
  • Require minimal downtime

Medium Peels

  • Contain glycolic or trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or a combination of acids
  • Reach the middle and upper layers of the skin
  • Help reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone such as age spots
  • Require more recovery time than superficial peels

Deep Peels

  • Consist of higher concentrations of TCA or phenol
  • Penetrate down to the lower dermal layer of the skin
  • Can achieve more dramatic results for deeper wrinkles and scars
  • Involve a longer recovery period and have a higher risk of side effects

Chemical Peel Benefits

  • Improvement in Texture: Your skin will feel softer and smoother as the peel helps to remove dead skin cells.
  • Reduction of Fine Lines: Areas around the eyes and mouth that show signs of aging can be improved.
  • Acne and Scar Treatment: Regular peels can help reduce the severity of acne and post-acne scars.
  • Melanin Management: By tackling hyperpigmentation, including melasma, freckles, and age spots, peels can even out your skin tone.
  • Anti-Aging Benefits: You’ll experience firmer, more supple skin. Removing the outermost layers can diminish signs of aging, and your skin's texture will look refreshed and rejuvenated.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

You might be a good candidate for a chemical peel if you have fair to light brown skin and are dealing with issues like acne scars, age spots, wrinkles, or uneven skin tone. Here are some other things to consider when determining if you're a good candidate:

  • If you have a dark complexion, you should be cautious as you may notice more significant changes in skin pigmentation
  • If you have sensitive skin or have had unfavorable reactions to skin treatments in the past, you may need a lighter peel or might not be a suitable candidate
  • Typically, good candidates are in good overall health without active skin infections, cuts, or severe skin disorders
  • Conditions like psoriasis, eczema, or rosacea may worsen with a chemical peel

Pre-Treatment Care

Your custom chemical peel journey starts with an initial consultation at Elite Plastic Surgery. During this meeting, we'll discuss your specific goals and expectations, and you'll receive a detailed explanation of the chemical peel process tailored to your needs. It's essential for you to share any past procedures, current medications, and overall health concerns.

We'll conduct a thorough skin assessment to determine your skin type and condition and detect any underlying issues that could affect the treatment. Based on this assessment, we'll choose a custom chemical peel formulation for you. You may be asked to avoid direct sunlight, use broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher, and stop using products containing retinoids, AHA/BHA, or benzoyl peroxide 5-7 days before the peel. Properly preparing your skin can significantly influence the success of your chemical peel.

Here are our favorite tips for getting your skin ready:

  • Drink plenty of water to ensure that your skin is well-hydrated
  • Use a gentle, non-irritating moisturizer to keep the skin's barrier intact
  • Consistently apply a high-SPF sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage
  • Inform your Elite specialist of any skin changes or irritation that arises before the peel

What to Expect During Your Custom Chemical Peel

After understanding your skin type and concerns, we’ll create a personalized chemical solution to address exfoliation and acne control, aging symptoms and texture improvement, and brightening and antioxidant benefits. Next, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any impurities or makeup. We may apply a prepping agent to ensure even penetration of the peel. The custom peel solution is carefully applied using brushes or gauze. Your Elite specialist will monitor your skin's response to determine when the peel should be neutralized. The duration of the peel on your skin ranges from several minutes to over an hour, depending on the peel's intensity and your skin's response. Here's what to expect:

Mild Peels

  • Duration: 3-5 minutes
  • Frequency: Every 4-6 weeks

Medium Peels

  • Duration: 5-15 minutes
  • Frequency: Every 6-12 months

Deep Peels

  • Duration: Up to 90 minutes
  • Frequency: Once every 2-3 years, as they are more intensive

Post-Treatment Care

Proper aftercare is essential to ensure the best results and minimize the potential side effects of a chemical peel. Your skin requires special attention following treatment.

Immediate Aftercare

After getting a personalized chemical peel, your skin may appear red and feel sensitive. Here's what to do right after the treatment:

  • Keep Your Skin Cool: Avoid hot showers, saunas, and strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours.
  • Hydration: Apply a gentle, unscented moisturizer to soothe and hydrate the skin. Reapply as recommended by your skin care professional.
  • Note: Do not pick or peel flaking skin; allow it to shed naturally.

Long-Term Skin Maintenance

Once your skin starts to heal, you can set up a maintenance routine to keep the results of your chemical peel long-term:

  • Sun Protection: Always use broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher. Reapply every two hours when you're out in the sun.
  • Gentle Skincare Routine: Use a mild, non-abrasive cleanser and moisturize daily.
  • Follow-up Treatments: Schedule follow-up peels as recommended to maintain the peel's benefits.
