Chemical Peel Q & A

What are the most common types of chemical peels?

Chemical peels are non-invasive cosmetic procedures that involve applying a chemical to the surface of the skin that exfoliates the uppermost layer, causing it to deteriorate so that it eventually peels away. When Nurse Practitioner Adeniran targets the old skin, leaving a new, fresher layer of skin is exposed. There are several different types of chemical peels, including:

  • VI peel
  • Salicylic acid peel
  • Glycolic acid peel
  • Jessner peel

Each type of peel can produce varying degrees of satisfaction depending on the results you desire. In many cases, you can receive monthly chemical peels to make corrections to the skin that go deeper than initially expected. After that, peels can be used every few months to maintain results.

How does a chemical peel work?

A particular compound, in some cases salicylic or glycolic acid, is applied to the surface of the skin and allowed to be absorbed. Nurse Practitioner Adeniran removes the excess and gives you proper instructions on how to care for your skin for the first few days after the procedure. Your skin will begin to feel very tight, and you may feel a slight burning sensation.

Over the next few days, the skin will begin to peel away gradually. It may peel away in large sections, or as small pieces of skin start to lift. The entire peeling process can take several days to complete, leaving behind younger, fresher looking skin.

How long do the results of a chemical peel last?

The results of a chemical don't last forever. Because the peel only treats the surface of the skin, the chemicals don't penetrate deep enough to reduce certain scars or blemishes. Chemical peels can be performed on a monthly basis to help increase the length of time the results will last.

Deep chemical peels can take up to a month to heal and provide longer lasting results. Milder chemical peels take much less time to heal, but the results may only last for a few months. If you receive chemical peels on a regular basis, the results may begin to last longer with each procedure, as long as you take proper care of your skin between sessions.
