Chemical Peels Q & A

Rochester Laser Center

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel involves the application of a chemical solution to your skin. This solution causes your skin to exfoliate and peel off, revealing smooth, rejuvenated skin. Chemical peels are particularly helpful in reducing the appearance of:

  • Acne or acne scars
  • Age and liver spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles and other irregular skin pigmentation
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Rough skin with scaly patches

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

SkinCeuticals chemical peels help you maintain optimal skin health and appearance. The primary benefits of these peels, especially when used in conjunction with SkinCeuticals home skincare products, include:

  • Reduced signs of photoaging, including fine lines and wrinkles
  • Softer and smoother skin texture
  • Decreased acne breakouts
  • Reduced appearance of acne scars and discoloration
  • More even skin tone

Who is a good candidate for a chemical peel?

People with light hair and fair skin usually experience the greatest results from chemical peels. If you have an infection, broken skin, or a sunburn, you’re not a good candidate for a chemical peel.

Patients with darker skin may also have positive results, but are more likely to experience an uneven skin tone following the procedure. Schedule a free consultation with the staff at Rochester Laser Center to find out if a chemical peel matches your aesthetic goals.

Do chemical peels hurt?

You may experience some stinging during a chemical peel, but the procedure isn't very painful. The skin revealed following a peel is temporarily more sensitive, especially to sunlight, so you’ll need to be careful to wear ample sunscreen for several days after the procedure.

What should I expect after a peel?

You will have some peeling and redness following a chemical peel, similar to how you feel after a sunburn. This peeling lasts anywhere from three to seven days.

The staff at Rochester Laser Center give you specific aftercare instructions, so you can maximize the benefits of the procedure. You may choose to repeat mild peels every few weeks until you achieve your desired look.
