Chemical Peels

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is an acid-based skin rejuvenating and exfoliating treatment that uses various skin-safe acids to speed up the rate at which the skin naturally exfoliates and sheds. If smoother, more radiant, and healthier skin sits at the top of your skincare goals, then a chemical peel is one treatment you’ll want to add to your current skincare routine. Chemical peels are commonly used on the face but are also favored for improving the skin on the neck, chest, and hands. 

Acids are the critical exfoliating ingredient in chemical peels. Applying one of several different acids (or a combination) to the skin incites an exfoliating effect to gently and safely remove dead skin cells. With less dead skin on the surface, the texture and tone of the skin improve, and fewer breakouts. Chemical peels can also help erase the signs of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars. In addition, some peels contain anti-inflammatory and botanical ingredients to help keep the skin balanced, nourished, and well-hydrated.

 The nice thing about chemical peels is that they are a quick and easy way to dislodge dead skin cells and brighten the skin while stimulating collagen production. Different acids in chemical peels do different things, and before your peel, your aesthetician will examine your skin to determine the acid that will target your current skin needs. It’s also important to know that a professional chemical peel uses a stronger concentration of ingredients and active acids to produce more effective results than an at-home peel. Peels also range in intensity from light to medium and deep. The commonly used acids in these peels include salicylic, lactic, glycolic, mandelic, trichloroacetic acids, resorcinol, Jessners, and the deepest-acting ingredient, phenol. The lighter the peel, the less it penetrates the skin, and the quicker the results can be seen. The stronger the peel, the more downtime but the more dramatic the results. Often, you can do the deepest peels only once in your lifetime.

Most light and medium chemical peels are performed as a series and can be done independently or with another treatment, such as a facial. The more frequently you do a chemical peel, the more exfoliated and refreshed the skin becomes.

Chemical Peel Results

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

Chemical peels, which are often performed by a dermatologist or aesthetician and in a medical office or med-spa, rely on acids to exfoliate the outermost layers of the skin. The treatments involve applying one of several different skin-safe acid solutions directly to the skin and allowing it to remain on the skin so that the acid can go to work and exfoliate the skin. As the acid penetrates the skin, it breaks up the bonds between the dead skin cells and the skin itself, loosening them and lifting away those dead cells. While this process takes place, it also creates a controlled skin injury to help induce collagen production and allow the skin to heal correctly. Once the allotted processing time is up, the peel is neutralized with a unique solution and then washed off the skin. Then, fresh skin comes to the surface. 

Depending on the acid used and the type of chemical peel, the skin may appear somewhat red directly after the treatment. Some acids work deeper than others to produce a faster onset of exfoliation, while others work effectively but with little skin sloughing on the surface. Of course, various factors can influence how a chemical peel works and its end effects, including its pH levels, the concentration, what else it is mixed with, and how long it is left on the skin.

 Like a laser treatment that resurfaces the skin, chemical peels achieve the same end goal. But chemical peels rely on physical exfoliating agents instead of using heat or energy as a laser does. This results in less downtime and recovery, yet still great results. Unlike lasers, most peels are safe for various skin types and tones, but a consultation is always imperative to determine the right course of treatment for you

Chemical peels are a long-standing skin-perfecting treatment that can help improve skin issues, including:


  • Rough and uneven texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Dark spots and hyperpigmentation
  • A dull-looking complexion
  • Active acne breakouts
  • Decreased collagen and elastin levels in the skin


Post-peel, it’s also normal for some minor dryness or patches of skin flaking, which is simply the dead skin shedding itself from the surface. Again, keeping the skin moisturized and well-protected from the sun is essential. After a few days, any side effects from the peel should subside as the new skin emerges to the surface.

Who is a chemical peel best for?

Most skin types and tones—even darker ones—benefit from a chemical peel. Discuss your skin history and other pertinent information with your provider at Kyur Aesthetics to ensure no adverse effects. And, of course, ensure they have a good knowledge of the skin and experience with the chemical peel you are doing.

Specific skin issues tend to respond better to a chemical peel than others. For example, if you are experiencing any of the concerns below, then a chemical peel may be the proper treatment for you:

Dullness, Discoloration and Hyperpigmentation, Breakouts, Acne Scars, Oily Skin, Fine Lines and Wrinkles.

What result can I expect?

With a chemical peel, you can expect to improve skin tone, texture, and specific skin conditions. Removing the skin’s outermost layer helps to erase signs of damage and uneven pigmentation by revealing smoother, fresher skin underneath. The most common results of a chemical peel include the following:

Smoother skin that’s healthier

Fewer lines and wrinkles

Better skin tone and texture

Fewer breakouts and acne scars

Improvement of age spots and hyperpigmentation

 While the results of a chemical peel can be seen on the face, particular features, including around the mouth, eyes, and even the nose, tend to bear most of the improvement. Plus, as the peel works to even out the skin, it appears softer and more radiant, with less discoloration and fewer spots. Those who suffer from acne breakouts and scarring are likely to see fewer clogged pores and improvement in their pimples and scars.

Of course, the results of a chemical peel depend on your skin type and tone, the issues at hand, and the type of peel used. However, any changes seen in the skin are not permanent and require maintenance with repeat peels as needed. In addition, each peel’s results differ in longevity, which on average lasts from a few weeks to a few months to up to one year, depending on your skincare habits.

The acids in a chemical peel work well to lift away dead skin cells, boost collagen, create younger-looking skin, tighten the skin, and speed up cell turnover. Chemical peels are also fantastic for cleaning out the pores so that breakouts are less frequent. Peels remain one of the best skin clarifying and rejuvenating treatments since they clear the skin of these dead skin cells. Just about anyone can benefit from a chemical peel.

The primary benefits of routine chemical peels include improving skin conditions such as the following:


  • Breakouts and acne
  • Acne scars and other scars
  • Hyperpigmentation and discoloration
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • A dull complexion


While chemical peels can be used on the face and body, it’s important to note that the skin benefits will vary depending on the acids and type of peel used. Treatment with a qualified and expertly trained aesthetician and a consultation will help you determine the best chemical peel for your skin needs.
