How do chemical peels work?

Chemical peels deeply exfoliate your skin, removing outer layers of damaged and dead skin cells. They use high-quality, medical-grade solutions with chemical ingredients like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, or trichloroacetic acid to do so. 

When performed by an expert dermatologist, these treatments are safe for your skin. 

When you visit Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic for a chemical peel, the team gently applies the peel to your skin with a brush. They leave it on for a set amount of time based on the peel type and strength before washing it off and applying a neutralizing agent. 

The team helps you choose the right chemical peel based on your skin type, sensitivity, and goals. They often recommend starting with a light chemical peel to decide how you like the results and how well you tolerate the process. 

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

Chemical peels offer many benefits to consider. They make your skin look more youthful by eliminating the dead cells that emphasize age-related features. A chemical peel rejuvenates your skin by:

  • Brightening your complexion
  • Reducing wrinkles and fine lines
  • Balancing the tone and texture of your skin
  • Softening and smoothing your skin
  • Minimizing spots and discoloration
  • Minimizing pores and acne scars

During your consultation, discuss features you want to target with a chemical peel, such as dry patches, scars, and spots. The team helps you choose the best peel for your goals. 

What should I expect after my chemical peel?

Depending on the strength of your chemical peel, you can anticipate some healing time. You can expect some itching and peeling in the days after your procedure. 

Tempting as it may be, you should never pick at your skin or peel off the flakes as your skin heals. Doing so can lead to scarring that outlasts the healing process. 

The team at Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic provides specific aftercare instructions based on the type of peel you receive. 

How can I enhance the results of a chemical peel? 

One benefit of chemical peels is the ability to combine them with other treatments to enhance their results. For example, you might be interested in getting cosmetic injectables like fillers or Botox® alongside a chemical peel for further skin enhancement.
