What is

Chemical Peel?

Chemical peel is an aesthetic treatment that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the exfoliation of the outermost layers of the skin, revealing fresh, new skin underneath. This process helps improve the appearance and texture of the skin by removing dead skin cells, stimulating cell turnover and promoting the growth of new, healthier skin.

Benefits of Chemical Peel

Improve the overall tone and texture of your skin

Types of Chemical Peel

There are 3 most common types of chemical peels


Superficial peels are the mildest type of chemical peel and removes the outer epidermal layer of skin to produce a brighter/fresher appearance, reduce fine lines and improve the appearance of pigmentation and acne scarring. Examples of these are glycolic acid and salicylic acid.


Medium depth peels (Trichloroacetic acid peels) target both the epidermis and the middle layer of skin, known as the dermis. Peels are often created with trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Recovery from a TCA peel typically takes a week to ten days. They can be used to treat severe acne, deep wrinkles, and moderate hyperpigmentation.


Deep peels target the epidermis, dermis, and even the lower layers of skin. These peels are the most aggressive type of chemical peel. Deep peels can be used to treat severe hyperpigmentation, deep wrinkles, and even precancerous growths but are associated with an increased risk of complications as well as a much longer recovery time


The treatments take no more than 30 minutes.
There may be minimal stinging that may last from 24-48 hours
There may be minimal redness and peeling for 5-7 days

Avoid waxing or laser for 48 hours prior to treatment.

If you are using any product/s containing vitamin A, glycolic (or any resurfacing ingredient) as a part of your skin care regime, you are advised to stop using these for three days prior to treatment.

  • Do not go swimming for at least 24 hours post-treatment.
  • No exercise that causes sweating, Jacuzzi, sauna, or steam baths until the skin is healed.
  • Do not use makeup for 24 hours post- treatment.
  • It is important that you avoid direct sunlight for at least 1 week, and make using a sunscreen with at least SPF50 a long term part of your daily routine.
  • Patients with sensitivity to the sun should take extra precautions to guard against sun exposure following the procedure as they may be more sensitive following the peel.
  • Your skin may be more red than usual for 2-3 days.
  • Approximately 24-48 hours after the treatment, your skin may start to peel. This peeling will generally last 2 to 7 days. DO NOT PICK OR PULL THE SKIN.
  • Apply a light moisturizer with sunscreen as often as needed to relieve dryness and tightness.
  • Do not have any other facial treatments for at least two weeks after your peel.
