Peels Q&A

What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are treatments that use specially formulated chemical solutions to remove the outermost layers of your skin, revealing a layer of fresh, healthy cells. This process is also known as dermapeeling or chemexfoliation.

Chemical peels are a wonderful treatment option for a wide range of issues. Some of the skin conditions chemical peels can improve include:

  • Mild scarring
  • Melasma, dark patches caused by hormonal changes
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Acne
  • Freckles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Roughly textured skin

There are many different types of chemical peels to choose from. The team at Northshore Dermatology offers peels from Obagi®, VI® Peel, and GlyDerm® and a solution to virtually every set of needs. 

What happens during chemical peel treatments?

The process begins with cleansing your skin. Next, your practitioner applies the chemical solution using a brush, gauze pads, or a sponge. The process may cause you to feel a slight burning or stinging sensation. 

Some peels rely on a neutralizing solution to stop the chemicals from further altering your skin. Others stop working after a period of time without the need for an additional application. 

After your peel, you need to protect your skin from exposure to ultraviolet rays. Avoid spending time in the sun for a few days, and wear high-quality sunscreen for further protection.

Your practitioner explains how to best care for your skin after your peel. Adhere to these instructions to get the most out of your chemical peel experience. 

How often should I come in for chemical peels?

You can see improvement after just one chemical peel. Depending on your treatment goals, you may need additional chemical peels spaced out over time to achieve optimal results. Your practitioner advises you on when to return for additional treatment. 

After your chemical peels, do everything you can to maintain your results. Northshore Dermatology offers top quality skin care products from some of the leading companies in the industry. Just ask for guidance on which products are best suited for your unique skin needs.
