What Are Chemical Peels and How Do They Work?

A lot of people are put off by the word “chemical” when it comes to chemical peels. It’s an intimidating word especially when it has to do with a face treatment. However, chemical peels are extremely safe and have actually been around for quite some time. If you’re interested in knowing exactly what a chemical peel is and how they work, continue reading! 

What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are a skin treatment that can be done to your face, neck, chest, or hands, however, they are most commonly done on faces. Chemical peels use acid to break down the top layer or layers of your skin. The chemical solution used will make these layers of skin blister and peel off. By peeling off the top layers you are revealing the other layers of your skin which are smoother and less wrinkled. 

How Do Chemical Peels Improve Skin?

Chemical peels improve your skin’s appearance because as mentioned above, they get rid of the dead skin layers and reveal the beautiful smoother layers. They minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and they even help even out your skin tone. Chemical peels also work to improve the appearance of scars, treat acne, reduce aging spots, and reduce dark patches and freckles. Chemical peels are great for treating sun damage too! 

What Can I Expect After a Chemical Peel Treatment?

After your chemical peel treatment, your skin will peel for about 3-7 days. However, it won’t start peeling right away, it may take 2-3 days to start. So make sure you schedule your appointment during a week you don’t have anything going on! 

After your chemical peel, make sure to show your skin some extra love! Use a gentle cleanser and be sure to keep your skin extremely hydrated with lotion or gel. We recommend these SkinCuetical products: Phloretin CF, Advanced Pigment Corrector, or Discoloration Defense. These products will help strengthen the barrier of your skin so that you can get the full benefits of your chemical peel. 

Don’t forget SPF too! While you should be using SPF lotion every day, be sure to not forget it after a chemical peel. You want to protect your skin from the sun as much as possible, especially after this treatment.
