Chemical Peels

Chemical Peel Details

Chemical peels work by using a chemical solution applied directly to the skin to promote peeling. The new skin that is revealed is smoother, less wrinkled, and more even in tone and color. These peels can be used with other cosmetic dermatological procedures and are often used to pre-treat areas prior to other treatments.

Patients with a variety of skin conditions can benefit from chemical peels. Patients with fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the nose and mouth, notice significant improvement after peels. Skin discolorations from sunspots, freckles, liver spots, age spots, uneven tone and blotchiness also diminish after treatment. In addition to improving skin tone and wrinkles, mild scarring (such as acne scarring) can be improved with peels.

Chemical Peel Procedure

  • Prior to treatment we instruct our patients to pre-condition their skin with topical agents, such as Retin-A.

  • On the day of the peel, the skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove all makeup, oil, and dirt.

  • The eyes and hair are then covered so they are protected from the chemicals.

  • The peel is then applied. Depending on the condition of the skin and the desired result, your aesthetician will determine whether a superficial or medium depth peel is required.

During the peel, the skin may feel slightly warm for about five to ten minutes. Daily use of sunscreen is recommended following the treatment to minimize the risk of complications, such as hyperpigmentation of the skin.

Chemical Peel Results and what to expect

The gentlest peel, the superficial peel, produces redness and peeling which lasts about three to five days. Medium depth peels can cause swelling, scaling, crusting, and mild discomfort can last seven to fourteen days before complete recovery.

The staff at the Knight Dermatology Institute will help you pick which peel is right for you before beginning any cosmetic treatment.
