What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is an excellent way to refresh and rejuvenate the appearance of wrinkled, spotted, or otherwise aged skin. This treatment is perfect for those seeking a healthy skin glow or who want to eliminate unwanted pigments.

A chemical solution such as alpha-hydroxy acid, glycolic acid, or trichloroacetic acid is applied to the face or to specific areas in order to deeply exfoliate the skin. During the procedure, most patients experience a slight tingling or stinging sensation that lasts for about 5-10 minutes. The length of time that the chemical solution is left to work on the skin depends on the patient’s condition. The chemical solution is then removed, and a moisturizer or ointment is applied to the skin. After approximately 3-7 days, the exfoliated layer of skin will “peel” off, revealing the new layer of skin underneath that is brighter, smoother, and less wrinkled.
