What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are one of the best and fastest ways to rejuvenate the skin and brighten it up. The chemical peel is used to improve the appearance of the skin. In the chemical peel treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes the skin to react and eventually peel off. Glycolic acid focuses on hyperpigmentation, aging, tone, and texture. Salicylic acid works to treat acne and oily skin and improve skin tone. Lactic acid targets pore size, looseness of the skin, and discoloration. Stronger TCA peels reduce discoloration, hyperpigmentation, and scarring texture. Retinol based peels help with aging, discoloration, superficial scarring, tone, and texture. Chemical peels can be a great rejuvenating treatment for the skin.

Chemical peel options

In the process of exfoliation, chemical peel replaces old skin with fresh, new, and healthy skin. This new skin is smoother, clearer, brighter, tighter, and with fewer lines and wrinkles. Usually, chemical Peels are done on the face, neck, and the hands, but the chest, the forearms, and the back can also benefit greatly from chemical peels. The chemical peel options are basically alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, lactic acids, retinoid acids, glycolic, and salicylic. Basically, they are all able to be customized to create benefits for correcting acne, sun damage, and oily or aging skin.

Chemical peel preparations

Before a chemical peel, your doctor goes through a series of steps to prepare the skin, including dermaplaning. It is the process of removing hair and the first layer of skin cells to allow the ingredients to penetrate the skin for the most effective results. The chemical peel that works best for one person may not be the best option for all clients. Your doctor will determine if your skin is dry or sensitive, and then based on those factors, they will determine a chemical peel.

Best way to start chemical peel treatments

Use a consultation to help determine the right peel for your skin type and for your lifestyle. If you have never had a chemical peel, the best way to introduce yourself to it is to do a superficial or light chemical peel, sometimes called the lunchtime peel. The reason why they call it the lunchtime peel is that you can go back to work or you could go out that evening, and nobody is going to suspect that you had anything done.

Light or lunchtime chemical peel

Sensitive skin can easily tolerate a light peel, which can immediately give it a nice, fresh, and healthy look. Light peels do not hurt. You may only feel a slight tingling, and there will be no downtime whatsoever. You might be a little pink afterwards, and you may get a mild flaking to the skin. But it can be covered up with makeup. For light chemical peel, usually 6 to 8 treatments at about four weeks apart are recommended to really see the difference and to benefit from that layer of peel. After a few light peels, you can switch it up to a stronger peel as long as your skin is not compromised, and it fits into your social calendar.

Medium chemical peels

The next level of chemical peels are the medium peels, which give more dramatic results. Medium chemical peels are derived from the trichloroacetic acid, commonly known as TCA, and they go much deeper into the skin. This peel improves the skin texture and tone; but it is going to take up both to the next level. It can remove sun damage, melasma commonly caused by hormone fluctuations, and fine lines, and wrinkles. The downside to a medium peel is that you have longer recovery time, and you might feel a little more discomfort during the treatment.

Chemical peel recovery

The burning and the stinging can last for about 30 minutes up to an hour after the medium peel treatment. You may want to hide for a few days because you are going to be a little red. Put ice on the area because you are going to be a little swollen. So try to keep your head elevated. You will be pink and itchy after the chemical peel. The skin is very reacted to the chemical peel sometimes, but you will get more peeling with this chemical peel. You must keep up with the daily regimen that your doctor provides for you, and apply and reapply the sunscreen every 2 to 3 hours.

What to expect after chemical peel treatment

After the medium peel, you can get patches of dark brown skin like you have tanned, or a little bit of leathery texture to the skin right before it starts the releasing and peeling of dead skin. You may have some breakouts in your skin after a chemical peel, and that is because peels will cause the skin to purge. Some complain about getting bumps, white spots, and milia. Those are the signs of the skin purging and the skin layers starting cellular turn over. In this stage, all the gunk stuck down in the deeper layers of the skin are brought up to the surface faster, and the chemical peel is purging the bacteria and the sebum out.

The cost of chemical peels

The cost of chemical peels depending on the layer of the peel and the type of chemical solution that is used. In India, each session of light chemical peel costs around $40, and medium peels cost about $75. In European countries, the prices of chemical peels range from $100 to $450 for one session. In South Africa, chemical peel prices start from $60 and go up to $180.
