Chemical Peels Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

During a chemical peel, a mixture of substances is applied to your face. This causes old, dead skin to slough off, revealing fresh new cells and glowing skin.

A variety of peel intensities are available, and your provider determines which one is best for you depending on your aesthetic goals and complexion complaints.

What are the different types of chemical peels?

At Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology, chemical peels are customized for you. They range in intensity and include:

  • Superficial peels, which are relatively mild and require little downtime
  • Medium peels, which are more intense and call for a week or two of recovery
  • Deep peels, which are most intense and require up to a month of recovery

Chemical peels are effective in improving the texture and tone of your skin. The degree of improvement you need dictates the intensity of the peel you choose.

Who is a good candidate for a chemical peel?

When you’re young, your skin cells regenerate every few weeks, but as you get older, this process slows down – a lot. Your complexion dulls as a result, and the older cells build up to cause breakouts, discoloration, and uneven texture. Anyone who needs accelerated skin renewal to achieve brighter, smoother skin could benefit from a chemical peel.

Chemical peels help men and women address a number of skin issues, including:

  • Rough skin
  • Rosacea
  • Melasma
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Your provider does a thorough evaluation of your skin so they provide the best recommendation on the type of peel and intensity that best meets your goals.

You’ll find that you experience continued healing after the initial chemical peel. The procedure triggers your body to heal naturally and continue to renew cells for improved skin long afterward.

What are PCA Skin® peels?

One product offered at Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology is PCA Skin® and their line of skin peels. This professional-grade product exfoliates dead skin cells and offers multiple treatment combinations depending on your skin’s health and needs. The peels are only moderately deep, so you have a relatively quick recovery.
