  FAQs Chemical Peels(Pro Peels)
Chemical peels correct a variety of skin imperfections such as blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation. They exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and color. In addition to full facial rejuvenation, certain types of skin peels can also be used for spot treatments and as a way to remove stretch marks or rejuvenate skin elsewhere on the body.
What are chemical skin peels?
In performing chemical peels, physicians apply alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), or phenol to the skin reduce or eliminate fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and other skin imperfections. After a chemical peel, the outer layers of skin in the treated area slough off, revealing a new layer of skin. TCA and phenol skin peels require at-home recovery of two weeks or more. Light skin peels, however, are so mild that there is little recovery time, and improvement in the skin’s appearance is immediately visible.
What are the different types of chemical skin peels?
There are several types of chemical peels, each indicated for different types and degrees of skin problems.
» Light (glycolic acid or salicylic acid) chemical peels can improve rough, dry skin, as well as uneven pigmentation. They can also improve the texture of sun-damaged skin and help control acne. Because a light chemical peel is the mildest type of peel and penetrates the skin the least, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
» Medium (TCA) chemical peels are best for people who want to smooth out fine wrinkles, remove superficial blemishes, and even out skin pigmentation. Medium skin peels can be used on any part of the body, and the peel depth can be adjusted to best suit the needs of the individual client.
» Deep (phenol) chemical peels can remove major blotching, such as that caused by aging, sun exposure, or birth control pills. Deep peels can also be used to smooth deeper wrinkles. Deep skin peels are only used on the face.
» Acne chemical peels help to control acne and smooth acne scars. A mild, medium, or deep chemical peel may be used, depending on the client’s skin condition. As with cosmetic chemical skin peels, an acne chemical peel can also reduce or eliminate wrinkles and improve skin pigmentation.
Can chemical peels be performed on areas other than the face?
Though deep (phenol) peels are only appropriate for the face, the skin on any part of the body can be treated with a special mix of the chemicals used in mild and medium skin peels.
  The chemical solution for body chemical peels is typically comprised of a combination of trichloroacetic acid (the main ingredient in a medium-depth skin peel) and glycolic acid (the main ingredient of a mild peel). The solution for body chemical peels is typically formulated to be slightly stronger than the chemical solution used for light or medium facial skin peels, though it is milder than the phenol solution used for deep skin peels.
  As with facial chemical peels, body peels address the effects of sun damage, even out skin pigmentation, and improve skin texture. Chemical peels can also be used on the body to minimize stretch marks. Read more about treating stretch marks with chemical peels.
Will my skin literally "peel"?
Chemical peels remove the outer layers of skin to reduce or eliminate the appearance of a number of skin imperfections and conditions. After a client undergoes a skin peel, the treated layers of skin gradually flake away, revealing a fresh new layer of skin.
How long is the recovery period after a skin peel?
The recovery time after a chemical peel depends on the type of peel administered, because each type of peel affects the skin to a different degree.
» Light chemical peels: These mild peels require virtually no recovery time. Though the skin may be mildly irritated after the peel, clients can return to their daily activities immediately after treatment.
» Medium chemical peels: The new layer of skin appears three to seven days after treatment. About two weeks after treatment, the skin will be fully healed.
» Deep chemical peels: The new layer of skin begins to appear seven to ten days after treatment, though complete healing can take two months or longer. Clients typically take a week off from work after undergoing a deep chemical peel.
