Superficial Chemical Peels for Smoother Skin

Treating a variety of skin conditions, including wrinkles, acne, and minor scarring, a chemical peel can help to reveal the appearance of healthier skin. With three types of chemical peels—superficial, medium and deep—patients can work with their dermatologist to find the treatment that is best for their skin type and needs. In the video below, learn more about a superficial chemical peel and how it could benefit your skin.

Also known as a “lunchtime peel,” a superficial chemical peel can smooth and reveal more radiant skin in one short treatment and without visible side effects. During the treatment, your dermatologist may apply either a fruit, glycolic or salicylic acid to dissolve the top layer of dead skin, the accumulation of which can lead to dull, uneven skin. While patients may experience a tingling sensation during the treatment, most are able to return to work or their daily activities right away.

4 Questions to Ask Your Dermatologist

Medical question

Having healthy skin is beneficial for both your overall health and your appearance. Your skin not only protects your body from external elements but can also affect self-esteem and confidence. By talking with your dermatologist, you can seek treatments for specific skin conditions or guidance on general skin care tips. At your next dermatology appointment, ask your doctor some of the following questions for more information about caring for your unique skin care needs.

  1. “Is my skin aging normally?” Not everyone will age at the same rate, but asking if the appearance of wrinkles is normal for your age can help you identify any lifestyle factors that could be accelerating the aging process. Smoking and tanning, for example, can result in signs of premature aging. Adjusting your habits and asking your dermatologist about treatments like microdermabrasion or injectables can help you restore a youthful facial appearance.
  2. “How can I treat my adult acne?” A fairly common skin condition among adults, adult acne can be a frustrating reminder of your teenage years. Adult acne can be treated with some of the same methods used to treat teenage acne. Using specialty skin care products and monitoring your diet can also help you to manage breakouts and to soothe irritated skin.
  3. “How can I prevent skin cancer?” While some may be at higher risk for developing skin cancer, all patients should take precautions against the sun’s harmful rays. Limit sun exposure and protect your skin by wearing sunscreen and other protective items like sunglasses and hats.
  4. “What treatments would most benefit my skin type?” Whether you are worried about wrinkles or skin diseases, your dermatologist can evaluate your skin and recommend treatments and procedures to help you target your problem areas. Depending on what your skin care concerns and goals are, your dermatologist may recommend a new skin care regimen or an in-office procedure.

Chemical Peel Aftercare Instructions

Young Woman Using Facial Cream - Isolated

Whether you want to reduce the signs of aging or to smooth out skin tone, a chemical peel can be an effective way to achieve clearer, younger skin. Depending on the type of chemical peel performed, patients may need several days or weeks to fully recover, but the following chemical peel aftercare suggestions can be beneficial for a variety of facial peels. Talk to your dermatologist for further instruction on caring for your skin following a chemical peel.

  • Stay Away from Sun: Because of the sensitivity of new and fragile skin, limit sun exposure, particularly in the first few days following the procedure. If you must go outside, wear a wide-brimmed hat, large sunglasses, and a liberal amount of sunscreen to protect exposed skin.
  • Keep Skin Moisturized: Your dermatologist may recommend applying a gentle moisturizer to your face throughout the day or when the skin appears dry. While hydrated skin can heal faster and feel smoother, be careful of over-moisturizing, as this can affect how your skin will naturally peel.
  • Wash Face Gently: While keeping skin clean is an important part of chemical peel recovery, avoid scrubbing too hard or using abrasive cleansers. Use a mild soap in the morning and at night to remove dirt, dead skin and other irritants gently from the skin.
  • Look, but Don’t Touch: It may be tempting to scratch or rub your skin after a peel, but this can slow the healing process. You can monitor your recovery by inspecting your skin in the mirror and taking note of any abnormal side effects, but avoid contact with your face unless absolutely necessary.
