Chemical Peels Q & A

What can a chemical peel treat?

Chemical peels can resurface your skin with the application of safe and effective skin care solutions. These clinical-grade peels gently remove the top layers of your skin, instantly targeting dead skin and blemishes. You should consider a chemical peel if you have:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Excess oil buildup
  • Acne and blackheads
  • Scars, including acne scars

Not only do chemical peels get rid of problem areas on your skin, they also help stimulate collagen production. By incorporating regular chemical peels into your beauty and skin care regimen, your skin naturally starts becoming firmer and tighter.

What happens during a chemical peel?

A chemical peel can be done as a lone treatment or as part of a facial, depending on your needs. After sitting down with you and discussing your skin care goals and concerns, your aesthetic specialist gives you options for various peels that can help you.

During the chemical peel portion of your service, your aesthetic specialist cleanses your skin, then applies a small amount of the peel solution to your skin to ensure you don’t have a reaction.

Next, they gently apply your peel. The chemical peel solution has to set on your skin for a certain time frame — usually about 10-20 minutes. After rinsing off the chemical peel and applying moisturizer, your peel is complete. Before you go, your dedicated provider counsels you on how to care for your skin after your peel.

How do I care for my skin after a chemical peel?

Your skin is probably going to be a little red after your chemical peel, which is entirely normal. For the following few days, you might experience some flaking or shedding, which lets you know the damaged layer of your skin is starting to come off and fresh new skin is surfacing.

For the first 1-2 weeks after a chemical peel, it’s critical to avoid direct sun exposure and to wear broad-spectrum sunscreen regularly — your skin is going to be overly sensitive during this healing period. Dr. Iluore and the aesthetic team can counsel you on which Obagi® skin care products can help your skin heal while boosting the benefits of your peel.
