What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.


Improve the outer layer of the skin or the superficial layers.


Improve both the superficial and mid layers.


Peeling extends into the deeper layers of the skin.

What are chemical peels?

The use of chemical peels to soften and improve the appearance of the skin, dates back to the ancient Egyptians. Little did they know that they were benefiting from the superficial skin peeling effects of hydroxy acids; lactic acid in the milk they were bathing in and tartaric acid in the grape skins they rubbed on their skin. Today, scientists have identified numerous forms of acid which can be used to induce beneficial changes for our skin, including salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol.

The procedure known as chemical peeling (or chemexfoliation to give it its proper name) involves the application of a chemical solution to the surface of the skin to produce the careful removal of its outer layers. The amount of skin removed will depend on the type of chemical used, the strength of this product and how long it is left on the skin.

What skin problems can chemical peels treat?

Chemical peels can be used on most areas of the body, but the commonest use is to improve the appearance of sun damaged skin on the face, or the backs of the hands.

They can also be used to improve certain skin spots, blemishes or lesions such as acne and actinic keratosis. If you are considering having a chemical peel, you must go to an experienced practitioner as the success of the treatment depends on a variety of factors. Your skin type and the problem which requires attention both need to be investigated fully by you and your practitioner.

Below is a list of the treatments and the type of skin problems which they can reduce:


Can help to lessen rough skin texture, dry or flaking skin, fine lines due to sun damage, mild acne marks, “age spots” (brownish patches which can be caused by sun damage) and balancing irregular skin tones (i.e. skin which may be uneven in colour.)


Can reduce small wrinkle lines, some acne scars, and certain pigmentation problems (again, making different coloured skin more even.)


Can help to reduce the appearance of deeper lines, wrinkles and scars.

PLEASE BE AWARE: chemical peels may not change your pore size, or improve loose skin (saggy skin generally needs to be treated by surgery), or deal with deep scarring.

What happens during a chemical peel?

At your first consultation with a practitioner, you should explain what you expect from the treatment and how you would like to look afterwards. He or she should tell you exactly what the treatment will involve and how long it will take for you to recover from it. A medical history should be taken by the practitioner, to ensure that there are no reasons why you shouldn’t have the treatment. Once this is established, you would normally be asked to read some detailed information and sign a consent form indicating that you have understood the potential benefits and risks associated with the peel procedure recommended.

Photographs may also be taken by the practitioner, for use as a “before and after” comparison at a later date.

Depending on the depth of peel and combination of peels used, different treatment procedures are recommended.

You would normally be asked to avoid any changes in your normal skincare routine 1 – 2 weeks prior to peel treatment. Things to avoid include electrolysis (facial hair removal), an exfoliating facial, sunbathing, tanning beds, or the use of any new creams as these could alter your response to the peeling agent. What happens next depends on the type of peel used.

How much does a Chemical Peel cost?
