Chemical peels refer to a collection of different cosmetic treatments that exfoliate layers of skin away from your face. These treatments can vary in intensity and frequency, but they’re all targeted at helping you get younger, healthier, more vibrant-looking skin by stripping away the surface layer and encouraging newer and better skin growth.
Your skin is constantly changing and shedding, but there are times where this process is slow and inefficient. Chemical peels are a direct way to encourage your skin to regrow and repair itself, and also allow you to influence its improvements by adding specific products or having additional treatments after chemical peels. While it’s not the most gentle of skin rejuvenation or skin tightening treatments, it's a fairly straightforward way of improving the health and appearance of your skin.
Because chemical peels can come in different types, it can be hard for someone to pick out which particular chemical peel will work best for their specific skin concern. Dr. V Medical Aesthetics helps our patients get through this process with intense, deliberate consultations that take into account their medical history, desired results, and overall compatibility with the chemical peel procedure. By personalizing treatments to the patient, we’re able to give them better results.
Dr. V Medical Aesthetics has plenty of experience with administering chemical peels, either as a general way to improve the skin or to address a specific skin concern. We make sure that our patients know that there are options that they can choose for their chemical peel treatment, and work with them to decide on which of these options work best.

While chemical peels vary in intensity, active products, and frequency of application, they fall under three categories that can improve your skin in various ways. Here’s a brief overview of the possible peels that you can get and their effects:
Your provider will work closely with you to ensure that you choose the best treatment for your particular skin condition, though they’ll usually err on the side of caution and select a light peel for you to start with. Remember that the deeper the peel, the more intense the procedure will be and the longer it’ll take you to recover.
A: Light peels or superficial peels can be purchased online or at your local pharmacy, and can be safely used on your skin with enough practice and careful application. Anything above a light peel should always be done in-clinic by a professional since the acidic components of chemical peels can quickly cause you injuries if you aren’t careful. If you’re not confident with your skills even with light peels, it’s all right to have them done in-clinic to ensure that no significant side effects occur.
A: Typically, the side effects of chemical peels increase the stronger your treatments are. Deeper peels require more time and effort to recover from compared to light peels, though both need post-procedure aftercare to accelerate the healing process. Because the top layer of your skin has been removed, you’re prone to developing issues like a skin infection or discoloration if you aren’t careful – which is why you should always follow the aftercare advice of your chemical peel provider.
A: Chemical peels typically have visible results as soon as your treatment is finished, though stronger peels will require the skin to heal before you can see the full results. It’s also why listening to your provider’s instructions about aftercare is so important, since any mishandling of the treated area can cause the effects to be less noticeable once the skin heals. Given that you typically need to wait for a few weeks to a few months before getting another peel, this makes aftercare extremely crucial to the success of your treatment.
A: Most experts encourage you to be conservative with the use of products like beauty serums or makeup after a chemical peel, since the increased sensitivity of your skin may react poorly to the ingredients. However, some products can work well to help your skin recover quickly, like hyaluronic acid serums.
