Here are some frequently asked Questions on Chemical Peels:

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a combination of acids used to remove layers of dead and damage skin to reveal new, softer, fresh looking skin.

Do all chemical peels create severe downtime and peeling?

No, there are varying degrees of chemical peels including mild relaxation time sessions that can be done weekly or medium and strong peels that are more of a one time thing.  This depends on the acid or combination of acids used, the strengths (percentages of each acid) and the length of time the peel is left on the skin.  Light peels are good for beginning peels and typically have no peeling involved.  The medium peels usually involve light flaking for 2-3 days.  Only strong peels such as TCA (trichloracetic acid) require 3-7 days of peeling.

At what age can one have a chemical peel?

Chemical peels can be performed at any age and are especially useful for teens with acne.

Do Chemical Peels thin your skin?

No, chemical peels stimulate collagen and elastyn so they actually plump the skin reducing wrinkles. They only remove layers of dead skin that need to be exfoliated.
