How Do Chemical Peels Work?

Chemical peels work by using a chemical solution to exfoliate and remove the top layers of the skin. The chemical solution raises the acidity of the skin and loosens the connections between dead skin cells. This causes the top layers of the skin to peel away, revealing new, smoother skin underneath.

The depth and strength of the chemical peel determines how many layers of skin are removed.

  • Superficial peels only affect the outermost layer of the epidermis and are the mildest type. They use mild acids or retinoids and can treat conditions like acne scarring or age spots. 
  • Medium peels penetrate deeper into the epidermis and can improve wrinkles, dark spots, and fine lines
  • Deep peels penetrate into the dermis and can improve deep wrinkles, acne scarring, and skin texture issues.

By removing damaged skin cells, a chemical peel allows the skin to regenerate itself and grow back smoother and brighter. Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve desired results, depending on the individual and condition being treated. 

Chemical peels are a relatively inexpensive and generally safe procedure to rejuvenate and refresh the appearance of skin.

What are Chemical Peels Good For?

Professional chemical peels can benefit a wide range of skin concerns through their ability to remove damaged outer layers of skin and promote regeneration of new, healthy skin cells. Some of the top uses and benefits of chemical peels include:

Reducing Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Chemical peels can be very effective at decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, especially those caused by sun damage or natural aging. By exfoliating the damaged upper layers of skin, peels allow fresher skin underneath to become visible. They also stimulate collagen production which plumps up wrinkled skin.

Improving Skin Texture and Tone

The exfoliating actions of chemical peels smooth away rough, dry skin patches to unveil smoother, more even-toned skin. They help clear up issues like enlarged pores, blotchiness, and a dull complexion.

Fading Hyperpigmentation

Chemical peels inhibit excess melanin production to reduce brown spots and discoloration like melasma, acne marks, sun spots, and age spots. They work especially well on pigmentation caused by sun damage.

Reducing Acne Scars

By removing scarred, damaged skin cells and promoting regeneration of new collagen and elastin fibers, peels can minimize the appearance of acne scarring. They are often used to reduce pitted scarring.

Evening Out Skin Tone

The exfoliating and skin renewal properties of peels make them effective at evening out uneven skin tone caused by issues like acne scars, melasma, sun damage, and aging.

Rejuvenating Dull Skin

Chemical exfoliation peels away dull, lifeless surface skin cells to unveil fresher, glowing skin underneath. This makes them useful for restoring a healthy, radiant complexion.

Smoothing Skin Texture

Chemical peels refine skin texture by clearing away rough, dry patches and reducing the look of enlarged pores. This makes the skin’s surface appear smoother and softer.

What Types of Chemical Peels Are Suitable for the Face?

Dr. Macha offers medical-grade peels personalized for each patient. Some of the most common include:

Peel TypeDescription
Glycolic acid peelsAn alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that penetrates the surface layers to exfoliate and renew the skin. Helpful for acne, fine lines, and uneven pigmentation.
Salicylic acid peelsA beta hydroxy acid (BHA) peel ideal for oily, acne-prone skin. It penetrates pores to remove debris, dirt, and oils.
Mandelic acid peelsAn AHA derived from bitter almonds. It provides gentle exfoliation best suited for dry or sensitive skin types.
TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peelsA medium-depth peel that reaches the epidermis and upper dermis to improve pigmentation, acne scarring, fine lines, and large pores.
Phenol peelsThe deepest chemical peel option. Phenol solutions can reach the mid-dermis to dramatically improve sun-damaged and aging skin.

Dr. Macha will evaluate your skin and recommend the best chemical solutions and treatment plan to address your particular concerns. With professional-grade peels, you’ll achieve optimal results safely.

Are Chemical Peels Performed by Dermatologists?

It’s highly recommended to have chemical peels performed by an experienced dermatologist like Dr. Macha rather than at a medi-spa or salon. 

As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Macha understands how different chemical solutions interact with skin at varying depths. She takes precautions to ensure peels are administered safely and at concentrations that will produce optimal, even results.

In a comfortable, spa-like setting, Dr. Macha will conduct a thorough consultation to devise a customized treatment plan. She’ll consider your medical history, skin type, level of sun damage, and what you hope to achieve. 

After the peel, she provides careful follow-up to monitor your progress and healing. With Dr. Macha’s medical expertise, you’ll enjoy natural-looking outcomes and glowing skin.

How Is a Dermatologist Chemical Peel Done?

During your treatment at CosMedic LaserMD, Dr. Macha follows meticulous protocols to ensure your safety, comfort, and satisfaction. Here is the general process:

  1. Cleansing and preparation: The area to be treated is thoroughly cleansed and prepped. All makeup, oils and debris are removed.
  2. Application of chemical solution: Dr. Macha applies the medical-grade peel formula – often an AHA, BHA, TCA, or phenol. The solution matches your goals and tolerance.
  3. Timed exposure: The peel solution remains on the skin for a specified amount of time based on the peel’s strength and depth. This allows proper exfoliation at the right level.
  4. Neutralization: The area is rinsed with water or a neutralizing agent to stop the peeling action. Cool compresses may be applied for comfort.
  5. Healing and aftercare: Immediately after the peel, skin may be red, tight, swollen or sensitive. Dr. Macha will provide instructions to aid healing and avoid complications. In 5-14 days fresh skin emerges.
  6. Repeat sessions: Multiple treatments may be needed for desired changes, spaced 2-4 weeks apart. Maintenance peels every 6-12 months help sustain results.

With Dr. Macha’s discerning care and medical-grade peels, you’ll be delighted by your revitalized, glowing skin.
