Frequently Asked Questions About Chemical Peel

A chemical solution is applied to the skin of the face in a skin resurfacing procedure which is known as chemical peeling. This aims to remove the top layers of the skin so that the skin grows back right after a chemical peel and reveals a much more smooth and young-looking skin.

Chemical peels are especially helpful in tackling skin discoloration, scars and wrinkles develop on the skin as a result of age and stress. The procedure can be performed alone, or it can be done in combination with any other kind of cosmetic procedure.

Chemical peels are conducted at different levels of the skin or depth and depending on that the categorization moves from light to medium to deep. This is also dependent on the expectations of the patient.

A different chemical peel uses different kinds of chemical solutions. The deeper chemical peels show dramatic improvements but then the recovery period is also quite long.

There are many types of acid peels that have been offered on a routine basis by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons like, glycolic peel, salicylic acid peel, mandelic acid peel which are perfect solutions for the treatment of uneven tone, dullness, and fine lines.

Most of these peels are quite gentle on the skin. When using a glycolic peel the first two times of its application very low percentage will be added (as low as 20%) so that the skin gets enough time to habituate or build a resistance against the acid. Gradually it is increased to 35 percent and in the final seating, it is increased to 50% for the desired results.

The glycolic peel acts in two ways: firstly, it removes or exfoliates the tough outer dead cells and then rejuvenates the inner young cells to make it grow in a healthy way. Many people go for the glycolic peel with the aim to just look better and may not necessarily be to improve skin conditions.

A chemical peel is a remedy used to treat various types of skin-related disorders. Depending on the skin conditions, different treatment levels are recommended by dermatologists for each patient.

When the recipient is suffering from acne, fine wrinkles and uneven skin tone accompanied by general dryness in the skin then a light or superficial chemical peel is the answer for the troubles. The patient may be recommended a seating of light chemical peel once every 2 or 5 weeks depending on the results that are expected.

When the patient needs the removal of skin cells from both the epidermis (the skin's upper layer) and the upper part of the skin's middle layer called the dermis, then a medium chemical peel can be the solution to their uneven skin tone, acne breakouts, and wrinkles. In this case, if medium chemical peel sessions are given after three to nine months, the results can be expected.

Deep mid-to-low layers of the dermis and epidermis may require removal of skin cells when the patient's skin has deep wrinkles and scars. In such situations, a deep chemical peel is a solution as it can also extract cells from the middle and lower dermis layers. If precancerous growths are detected in the skin, this procedure may also be recommended. This kind of peeling, though, can only be achieved once.

A patient must also consider risks associated with chemical peeling or the side effects like:

Redness: This kind of problem lasts for several months when a patient has undergone a deep or medium chemical peeling session.

Scarring: Chemical peel is not believed to be causing scarring troubles especially on the lower parts of the face. In order to soften the appearance of these scars antibiotics and steroid medications are used.

Changes in skin color: After a chemical peeling procedure, hyperpigmentation is a common side effect which makes the treated area darker than the normal or actual color when using deeper chemical peeling. If light peeling is used, sometimes hypopigmentation can occur where the regions are pale or lighter. Increases in skin color with hyperpigmentation can be a lasting influence for people on the darker tone.

Infection: Herpes virus flaring can occur as a side effect to chemical peeling and cold sores can be caused by the virus. In very rare cases, bacterial or fungal infection can result from a chemical peel.

Heart, kidney or damage to the liver: use of phenol or carbolic acid in the procedure of deep chemical peeling can damage the muscles of the heart and make it beat irregularly. The kidneys and liver can also get harmed with phenol. In order to reduce these risks, a deep chemical peeling is done at an interval of 10 to 20 minutes.


Pore size or complete removal of deep scars and wrinkles through chemical peels is not possible. The form of treatment may not be appropriate for anybody. Some of the things a doctor considers unsuitable to give a chemical peeling procedure are:

  • Patients who have taken isotretinoin for the treatment of acne in the last six months
  • Have a very dark complexion
  • Have a personal history of ridged areas which can cause the overgrowth of scar tissues or keloids.
  • Suffers from abnormal skin pigmentation
  • History of suffering outbreaks of cold sores that are severe.

Chemical peeling procedures vary for different levels. We will look briefly at each of the three chemical peeling procedures in this segment. The operation is usually performed on a visit to the doctor or on outpatient surgery. The doctor is going to thoroughly clean the patient's face and mask the eyes with ointment, tape or goggles. The hair of the patient is also secured to prevent it from being contaminated by any chemical.


Pain relief is something that may not be required if the patient undergoes a light chemical peeling. But if the patient is undergoing a medium chemical peel then the surgeon may consider the option of both sedative and a pain killer.


In the case of a deep chemical peel, the surgeon or doctor will numb the skin with the help of local anesthesia which will numb only a certain part of the body as desired by the doctor and can use a sedative.


Light chemical peel: The doctor will use a cotton ball, gauze or sponge and will use a brush for applying a chemical solution which shall make use of glycolic or salicylic acid. The skin that is treated will begin to whiten. The patient can feel some mild stinging while the chemical solution is still on the skin. The doctor will apply a neutralizing solution or clean it to get the chemical solution removed from the treated skin.


Medium chemical peel: An applicator will be used by the doctor which has cotton at its tip for applying a chemical solution that contains trichloroacetic acid, this can be also used in combination with glycolic acid. The skin that is treated will begin to whiten. Cool compress will be applied by the doctor after a few minutes to bring about soothing of the treated skin. The patient can be given a hand help fan to bring down the temperature of the skin and a neutralizing the solution is not needed. The patient can feel a burning and stinging sensation for a period of 20 minutes.

Deep chemical peel: In a deep chemical peel treatment the patient is given intravenous fluid and the heart rate is closely checked all the while. Again, a cotton-tipped applicator is used for applying phenol or carbolic acid to the skin. After that, the skin will turn white or turn gray. The doctor will control the exposure to phenol will do the treatment intermittently at a gap of 10 to 15 minutes. The whole procedure will last for about 90 minutes or so.

If a patient is troubled by chemical peeling, they should seek a natural concoction to treat their skin like lemon or pineapple juice or apple cider vinegar. Depending on the problems, numerous mixtures can be made, yogurt, lemon and honey mixture is particularly useful in the treatment of black spots and skin pigmentation.

Before undergoing a chemical peel, it is important to have a hearty talk with the doctor revealing past and present medical conditions. The health of the heart, liver, and kidney must be clearly discussed especially if the patient is considering deep chemical peeling. If the patient has undergone a cosmetic procedure before, that should also be revealed. If the patient had been using any retinoid cream, then that must be revealed since tretinoin and likes can enhance the penetration of certain chemicals.


The doctor will anyway conduct a physical examination to check for the skin tone, thickness and texture before deciding on the chemical peel treatment. The patient must also use the opportunity to discuss the outcome expectation of the surgery team.


Some of the precautionary medications that must be considered are:


  • Taking antiviral medication if the patient had a history of  herpes infection near the mouth
  • Usage of a retinoid cream to enhance chemical penetration when undergoing light or medium peel.
  • Usage of a bleaching agent for the prevention of skin darkening
  • Stay away from the sun or use a proper sunscreen
  • Some cosmetic treatment and some types of hair removal should be avoided before the treatment
A mild amount of redness is expected with any form of chemical peeling that will disappear with further sessions. But in the case of light and medium chemical peeling, the doctor will advise the patient to go with petroleum jelly and ice packs to take care of the scalp. The redness will stay longer in case of deep chemical peeling, Any pigmentation of the skin can occur causing permanent darkening or lightening. It is best to stay indoors for some time, the new skin replenishes the old and damaged skin completely, and redness can be counteracted by using some cosmetics on it.

Skin peeling treatment costs can vary from $40 to $60 each seating in India and the variation can also be affected depending on where the surgery is conducted.
