A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred.

A chemical peel can help improve:

  • Acne or acne scars
  • Age and liver spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Irregular skin pigmentation
  • Rough skin and scaly patches
  • Scars
  • Sun-damaged skin

Are you a candidate?

You may not be a good candidate for chemical peeling if you have:

  • A history of abnormal skin scarring
  • Abnormal pigmentation
  • Afro-Caribbean or Asian skin
  • Facial warts
  • Red hair and pale freckled skin
  • Used certain acne treatments within the last year

How a chemical peel works

Chemical solutions are carefully applied to your skin to improve the texture by removing damaged outer layers.

The chemicals used are phenol, trichloroacetic acid, and alphahydroxy acids. The formula used by your doctor will be adjusted to meet your particular needs.

There are three types of chemical peels:

  • Light chemical peel - Subtle improvements at first, but that healthy glow will increase with more treatments
  • Medium chemical peel - Your skin will be noticeably smoother and fresher looking
  • Deep chemical peel - Results are dramatic, but recovery takes the longest
