Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are treatments for your skin utilizing combinations of chemicals to smooth away your skin’s rough outer surface. 

While most people think of their face first for a chemical peel, you can also use them on your hands, neck, or chest to combat the damages related to sun exposure and weathering. 

Chemical peels can reduce or completely eliminate many common imperfections that stop you from appreciating your skin, including:

  • Acne
  • Acne scars and other light scars
  • Fine lines
  • Freckles and other dark spots
  • Discoloration
  • Dryness
  • Roughness

Following your chemical peel and the recovery period, you’ll see softer skin that looks more even and clear. 

What types of chemical peels are available?

Your aesthetic nurse works with you to select a chemical peel for the severity of your skin’s flaws. Alazar Medical Group has various peels to choose from that can to minimize dark spots and discoloration. Other chemical peels can be separated into the following categories:

Light peels

A light peel is relatively gentle on your skin and removes only the top of the surface layer. You can get a light peel every two to five weeks if you’re content with the results.

Medium peels

Medium peels reach a bit deeper than light peels. They remove the entire top layer and the top part of the middle layer of skin. You’ll need to return to Alazar Medical Group for at least one check-up as you heal. You can get another medium peel three to nine months after the first.

Deep peels

Deep peels aim for drastic, one-time-only results. They peel away your skin’s surface and most of the middle layer to alleviate wrinkles and even some precancerous growths. You may wish to spend about a two-week healing period at home as you grow a new layer of skin, but this isn’t always a requirement.

Who can get chemical peels?

Chemical peels allow many patients to get a gorgeous new surface layer of skin. They work best for patients with lighter skin tones, as dark tones are more susceptible to discoloration as a result. 

However, you may still be able to get a chemical peel regardless of your skin tone depending on the type of peel you want and what you’re treating. 

To make sure a chemical peel is the right step in your skin treatment plan, you’ll attend a consultation with your aesthetic nurse at Alazar Medical Group before proceeding with the procedure.

If your skin’s surface is looking rough, discolored, or blemished, don’t hesitate to request your chemical peel consultation at Alazar Medical Group by phone or online today.
