Basics of Chemical Peels

During a chemical peel process, a solution is applied to the face. This material removes the outer layers of skin that may be damaged or rough. As each client’s skin condition is different, the exact nature of the treatment may be different. Chemical peels are used to reduce fine lines, sun damage, and large pores. The number of treatments needed will depend on the goals set by the client and the clinician.

Conditions that Chemical Peels Can Correct

Chemical peels are commonly used to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections. They are also used to lessen acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and even rosacea. The treatment process can be targeted to specific areas where more correction is needed. There are several types of chemical peels that are recommended based on the level of correction that is needed. Light peels are used for light discoloration, fine wrinkles, and minor acne scars. Medium peels are more intensive and go beyond the upper layers of the skin. Deep chemical peels go even further to remove additional layers of skin when there are deep scars or heavy wrinkling. Clients need to discuss whether injectables or chemical peels are the best treatments for their skin.

The Process

When a client and an aesthetician decide the best treatment plan, they will plan a date or begin the treatment on the spot. During treatment, many clients report that they experience some tingling or warming during the treatment process. As each client has a different treatment plan, the time involved and follow-up care will vary. The goal is to work closely with professionals to achieve the desired results safely.


Following treatment, clients often feel some sensitivity in their skin and a slight rosiness. These are temporary side effects that will quickly subside. As the skin recovers, some flakiness will occur. This is a normal part of the process. It will begin exposing the fresh skin underneath. Soon, glowing, youthful skin will be apparent.
