What is… a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a professional skin treatment that’s performed by a dermatologist or licensed esthetician in their office or treatment studio.

Chemical peels use alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) to remove dead cells from the skin’s surface, typically on the face but also on the neck and hands. These exfoliating acids work to resurface the complexion by causing the skin to shed its layers. This process minimizes the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, uneven tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and some types of acne.

Because a chemical peel works by encouraging the body to shed layers of skin cells, the procedure will require downtime and causes sensitivity to sunlight. The amount of downtime, however, can vary greatly depending on the intensity of the treatment.
