What is Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a name given to an aesthetic skincare service wherein an acid solution is applied to the skin to peel off its top layers and reveal underlying fresh, clear, smooth, youthful skin.

How Does Chemical Peel Work?

In a chemical peel treatment in Delhi provided by Dr. Sarita Sanke, an acid solution is applied to the skin. The acid induces controlled skin damage and works to exfoliate the skin- removing the outermost damaged/affected skin layers. It promotes the body’s natural healing response which leads to the production of new skin cells and collagen and elastin structural protein fibres, ultimately improving the overall health and looks of the treated skin.

Types of Chemical Peel

DermaRita Skin Clinic offers three kinds of chemical peels to address different skin concerns. These are:

  • Superficial peels- This is the mildest form of chemical peels, recommended for anyone with minor skin issues such as uneven skin texture, dullness, mild hyperpigmentation, acne, and mild dyschromia.  Examples include alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic acid and lactic acid. Such peels contain mild acid that acts to remove only the skin epidermis. Treatment with these peels needs to be repeated many times in week intervals to get the desired results.
  • Medium-depth peels- This type of peel is more intense than superficial peels and is commonly recommended for anyone having multiple keratoses, pigmentary disorders, solar lentigines, and superficial scars. Examples include beta hydroxy acids like salicylic acid. Such peels act only to remove epidermal and upper dermal skin layers. Treatment with these peels needs repetition but not much as superficial peels.
  • Deep peels- This kind of chemical peel is the most intensive and typically recommended for severe photoaging, deep or coarse wrinkles, precancerous skin lesions, and deep scars. Examples include a high concentration of trichloroacetic acid and phenol. Such peels act to remove skin up to the middle of the dermis. A single deep peel treatment session is usually enough to get the desired results.

Before Chemical peel

Chemical peel treatment needs some skin preparation beforehand to ensure optimal results and to have minimal risk of serious reactions or complications. Dermatologist, Dr. Dr. Sarita Sanke recommends following pre-treatment instructions before going with a chemical peel session:

  • Avoid excessive direct sun exposure and use of tanning beds. Diligently apply sunscreens and wear sun-protective clothing in the days leading up to the chemical peel treatment to prevent sun damage.
  • Stop using any skin product that irritates the skin or certain medications as advised by a dermatologist.
  • Properly cleanse the skin to be treated.

Chemical Peel Procedure

Chemical peel treatment can be undergone as an outpatient procedure at a dermatologist’s office. The professional starts with the procedure by first thoroughly cleansing the skin. Next, petroleum jelly is applied to the corners of the eyes, nose, and lips to protect those sites from acid injury. In the case of deep peel treatment for a large area, general anesthesia may be given beforehand to ensure comfort throughout the treatment.

Once the skin is prepped for the treatment, the chosen strength of the acid solution is evenly applied over the treatment area to create a controlled injury and reveal new skin from underneath. The acid solution is applied with the help of a gauze piece. Different candidates have different coatings of acid solution and the skin is left undisturbed for a time as per the type of peel used and the severity of the skin concern being addressed.

As the acid solution is applied to the skin, the candidates may feel a burning sensation lasting for about 5-10 minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. The skin is soothed at this time by neutralising the area with a cold paper mask. For candidates who are provided with medium peels, cold compresses are used to soothe the skin while those who receive deep peels would have to get surgical dressing on their wounded skin and may need painkillers. The procedure ends with the application of moisturisers and skin-brightening masks.   

Recovery and Aftercare

Following the chemical peel treatment, it's normal to expect some redness, peeling, or flaking of the skin as the old, damaged skin gets replaced with fresh, rejuvenated skin.

To ensure a smooth and quick recovery, Dr. Sarita Sanke, skin doctor in Delhi recommends to follow these aftercare instructions:

  • Do not pick or scratch peeling skin as it could leave a scar or cause infection.
  • Keep the treated area clean and well-moisturised to promote healing and help maintain the desired results of the treatment.
  • Avoid sunlight exposure and apply sunscreen of high SPF daily to protect freshly peeled skin from further damage and reduce the risk of discoloration.  
  • Do not indulge in any activities that cause excessive sweating or excessive heating and irritation of the treated area.
  • Avoid hot baths, hot showers, saunas, and steam rooms as they can make newly peeled skin more sensitive and delay its healing.
  • Go ahead with the dermatologist-recommended post-peel skincare regimen.
