What Can a Chemical Peel Do for Me?

If you’re tired of the daily battle to try to hide your blemishes and uneven skin, a chemical peel may be the perfect solution. Chemical peels help you heal and rejuvenate your skin to restore an even, consistent, and youthful glow. Some of the key advantages of chemical peels are:

  • Visible results after a single treatment
  • Increased collagen production and growth of new, healthy skin cells
  • Reduced discoloration from sun damage
  • A reduced appearance of scars and visible blemishes
  • Fewer breakouts
  • Smoothed fine lines and slight wrinkles
  • An even, beautiful glow restored to your skin

How Does a Chemical Peel Work?

The procedures for a light chemical peel can be completed in about 15 minutes, and Annie will work with you to choose a solution appropriate for your skin type prior to treatment. Light chemical peels are typically composed of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), such as glycolic, lactic or fruit acid.

Annie will apply the solution to the treatment area using a sponge, swab or brush, and these peels can be applied weekly for optimal results.

Medium and deep chemical peels may take up to an hour to complete and typically require topical, but occasionally a local or general anesthesia, to minimize discomfort. The solutions are composed of much “heavier” chemicals such as phenol, acetone and trichloroacetic acid that are capable of penetrating several layers of skin and generally creates a greater benefit for you. Annie will thoroughly cleanse your skin prior to the peel, and cool compresses or fans may be used to cool your skin during and after your chemical peel at our Newport Beach office.

What to Expect During Your Chemical Peel

Depending on the condition of your skin, you may benefit more from a mild, moderate, or deep chemical peel. During your consultation, Annie will advise you which would be best for you. Chemical peels typically involve the following steps:

Cleansing

First, your skin will undergo a deep cleansing to prepare for the treatment, which will be tailored to your skin’s unique qualities.

Application

Once your skin is ready, we will apply the chemical peel solution to your skin. Depending on the peel, this takes between 15 minutes and one hour.

Final Cleansing

Once the peel is complete, we will remove the solution from your skin and perform a final cleanse.

Cream

Once your skin is clean, we will apply an anti-inflammatory cream to help with the healing process.

Am I a Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

The different types of chemical peels come in varying strengths and provide different levels of treatment. Following an evaluation with Annie, she will be able to determine the appropriate chemical peel treatment for your skin type.

You may be a potential candidate for a chemical peel if you are in good physical health and you wish to improve the appearance of your:

  • Skin texture
  • Acne
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Skin color irregularities

What Happens After a Chemical Peel?

Recovery time following your chemical peel typically depends on the strength of the peel that was done and how deep it was. Annie will provide you with specific aftercare and hygiene instructions to prevent infection and aid in the healing process, so you’ll know exactly what to expect after your peel.

You may be required to cleanse your skin frequently following your chemical peel, as well as apply a specialized ointment to your skin. There is no downtime required after a light chemical peel. You may experience slight discomfort, but you should be able to resume normal activities immediately. Your skin may be slightly pink and only minimal peeling will occur.

Medium and deep chemical peels are also performed on an outpatient basis, but you will need to take four to six days of active peeling into consideration of your schedule. The skin will be tight and itchy for several days, followed by a period of flaking and peeling. Complete healing of the skin may take several months, but returned to skin health protocol starts in one week.
