What is Chemical Peels?

Frequently Asked Questions

A Chemical Peel is a procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to your skin to remove the top layers, with smoother skin growing back. Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, discolored skin, and scars, and can be done at different depths, from light to deep. With a light or medium peel, you may need to undergo the procedure more than once to get the desired results. Deeper chemical peels offer more-dramatic results but also take longer to recover from.

What are the benefits of Chemical Peel?

In addition to treating fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and pigmentation, our patients in The Woodlands have seen the following benefits from their Chemical Peel procedure:

  • Balances Texture
  • Erases Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Fades Discoloration
  • Lifts Skin
  • Minimizes Pores
  • Smooths Skin
  • Soothes Scarring
  • Treats Acne

The Best Candidates

Who Is a Chemical Peel For?

Most men and women living in or around The Woodlands are great candidates for Chemical Peels. Unfortunately, we can not recommend a Chemical Peel if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Have taken the oral acne medication isotretinoin (Myorisan, Claravis, others) for the past six months
  • Have a personal or family history of ridged areas caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue (keloids)
  • Are pregnant
  • Have frequent or severe outbreaks of cold sores

What’s the first step?

The first step in getting a Chemical Peel in The Woodlands is to contact our practice and schedule your free consultation. During this appointment with a certified Technician, you can address your aesthetic goals, ask questions about Chemical Peels, and be given suggestions on which Chemical Peel treatment is best for you. When you decide on which one you would prefer, we will be able to perform the treatment right then or we can reschedule to a time that’s better for you. Our patient coordinator will also provide you with a pricing sheet that will break down the costs of your treatment.

What to Expect on the Day of a Chemical Peel

When you come into our MedSpa for your Chemical Peel, your skin will first be thoroughly cleaned. Then your technician will apply one or more chemical solutions to small areas of your skin, creating a controlled wound and letting new skin take its place. Most patients will feel a burning sensation that lasts about five to ten minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. When the process is complete, the technician will apply cool compresses to your skin to help ease the stinging. If you get a deeper peel, then you may also be offered some pain medication to ease you through the first stage of your recovery.

Meant for mild to moderate skin imperfections, this peel helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while addressing skin tone unevenness.

Chemical Peel Recovery

What is the downtime?

Depending upon the type of chemical peel you received, you may experience a reaction similar to a sunburn. There is typically some redness and peeling involved, followed by scaling that ends within three to seven days. Mild peels may be repeated at one to four-week intervals until you get the look you’re after. Medium-depth and deep peeling may result in swelling as well as blisters that may break, crust, turn brown, and peel off over a period of seven to 14 days. Medium-depth peels may be repeated in six to 12 months, if necessary.

After your treatment, you might need to wear bandages for several days on part or all of the skin that was treated. You’ll also need to avoid the sun for several months after a chemical peel since your new skin will be fragile. We highly recommend that you wear sunscreen every day, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. as this is when the sun is usually the brightest. We also recommend wearing a wide-brimmed hat to offer you shaded protection.
