Chemical Peel Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic dermatology treatment that applies certain acids to the skin to remove its top layers. The outermost layers of skin are older and often damaged from environmental exposure. A chemical peel speeds up your body’s natural skin regeneration processes to give you clearer, brighter, and smoother skin more quickly. 

What skin problems can chemical peels treat?

Chemical peels treat numerous skin problems, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Age spots, melasma, and other unwanted pigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rough texture
  • Dull tone
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Some precancerous lesions

Skin peels can combine with other cosmetic dermatology treatments, like fillers and Botox®, to help you achieve your desired results. 

What kind of acids are in chemical peels?

Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center offers the Vitality Institute (VI) Peel, which contains a blend of different acids for maximum effects. Ingredients include:

  • Trichloroacetic acid
  • Phenol
  • Salicylic acid
  • Vitamin C
  • Tretinoin

The unique blend of ingredients is safe for all skin types and tones and works on the face, chest, hands, and back. 

How does the chemical peel process work?

VI Peel starts with skin cleansing. Your provider applies the peel in two layers. Your skin turns white in the areas with the VI Peel solution, but it’s not painful. You can return home after that, but you’ll wear the peel for at least four hours. 

After the recommended time, you can wash the peel off. Your skin starts shedding in a few days. The peeling process lasts up to a week. After that, you’ll have clearer, brighter, and more beautiful skin. 

How often will I need chemical peels?

The frequency of your chemical peels depends on your skin issue and personal appearance goals. You can get VI Peels as often as once a month. 

How do I take care of my skin after a chemical peel?

Your Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center provider gives you complete aftercare instructions following your peel. You’ll typically need to apply a post-peel protectant and moisturizer frequently as your skin heals. Be sure to wear sunscreen whenever you’re outside.
