Understanding Chemical Peeling

Chemical peeling is a cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance and texture of the skin by applying a chemical solution to exfoliate the outermost layers of the skin. This process stimulates cell turnover, revealing smoother, more even-toned skin underneath. Chemical peels can be customized to target various skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. They are a popular non-invasive treatment option for achieving brighter, rejuvenated skin with minimal downtime.

Preparation and Procedure

At Neo TrueNorth, we prioritize patient safety and satisfaction throughout the chemical peeling process. The procedure typically involves the following steps:

  • Initial Consultation: During the initial consultation, the skincare specialist will evaluate the patient’s skin type, concerns, and goals, and recommend the most appropriate type and strength of chemical peel. The specialist will also review the risks and benefits of chemical peeling and provide pre-treatment instructions.
  • Skin Preparation: Before the peel, the patient may be instructed to discontinue certain skincare products and medications that could increase skin sensitivity. A gentle cleanser may be recommended to cleanse the skin and remove any makeup or impurities.

  • Chemical Peel Application: The chemical peel solution is carefully applied to the cleansed skin using a brush or applicator. The type and strength of the peel will depend on the patient’s skin type, concerns, and desired outcome. Common types of chemical peels include:

    • Superficial Peels: These peels use mild acids (such as alpha hydroxy acids or AHAs) to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin, resulting in a gentle, refreshing treatment with minimal downtime.
    • Medium Peels: Medium-depth peels penetrate deeper into the skin, using stronger acids (such as trichloroacetic acid or TCA) to target more advanced skin concerns, such as fine lines, acne scars, and pigmentation issues.
    • Deep Peels: Deep peels are the strongest type of chemical peel, using powerful acids (such as phenol) to deeply exfoliate the skin and address severe skin damage and signs of aging. These peels require longer recovery times and may be performed under sedation or anesthesia.
  • Post-Treatment Care: After the peel, patients may experience temporary redness, irritation, and peeling as the skin undergoes the exfoliation process. It’s important to follow post-treatment instructions provided by the skincare specialist, including applying soothing creams or ointments, avoiding sun exposure, and using gentle skincare products.

  • Results: The results of a chemical peel are typically gradual and cumulative, with noticeable improvements in skin texture, tone, and clarity over time. Patients may require multiple treatments spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results, depending on their skin concerns and treatment goals.
