What Is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels have existed since the age of antiquity, more precisely in Egypt. It is used to peel the skin by removing the dead layers on the surface to make room for new healthier layers.
What is skin peeling? The surface of our body is indeed made up of dead cells; this allows it to better protect us against the external environment. For this reason, it is possible to eliminate the old cells which give a dull, uneven and even spotted complexion. Imagine the skin in the following way, the skin surface is divided into 3 layers: old cornflakes on the surface, then there are raisins and fresh grapes in-depth.
The peelings remove the old cornflakes to allow the grape veal to come to the surface which creates radiance on the face. There are penetration peels on the surface, medium peels and deep peels. On the surface, they will be used to correct skin irregularities. In-depth peels helps to renew collagen, with a higher recovery period, because it penetrates the deep levels of the skin.
In Canada, some laws govern the maximum levels that can be used so that they are ideal for treating the appearance of the surface of the skin. As for wrinkles, very dilated pores, sagging skin and scars, we must turn to other treatments much more effective than chemical peels.
Chemical Peels - Treatable Areas
Types of Chemical Peels and Their Different Uses
The peel is mainly used on the face, neck and collar area. What makes a peel aesthetic or medical grade is the depth of penetration into the skin. When it’s aesthetic, the peel reaches only the first layer of skin that is the epidermis. In the case of deeper peels, it reaches the surface of the dermis. Here are some examples of the usefulness of the chemical peel:
• Decreases fine lines and wrinkles
• Reduces dilated pores
• Helps to create more collagen and elastin
• Helps tighten and firm the skin
• Reduces (and in some cases eliminate) hyperpigmentation or melasma
• Reduces acne
• Improves acne scars

After Your Chemical Peel
Your skin may turn red, brown or bleached in certain areas which is a normal reaction after receiving a chemical peel. The effects will be greater with the use of Jessner and TCA because they are of medical-grade meaning they will penetrate much deeper than glycolic or salicylic acid. You may also feel a warm sensation on your face and feel that the skin is dry. It will be necessary to wait 24 hours before being able to wash the face.
The Day After Your Chemical Peel
The next day, you can wash your face with the products provided by the clinic. The skin will be dry and you will need to apply moisturizing creams and sunscreen for 5 to 7 days following treatment.
The skin will begin to stretch and you will begin to feel that the skin wants to start peeling. Under no circumstances should you scrape or remove the skin, this could cause lesions that may leave scars.
Day 3 to 5
The skin will begin to peel, for some people who have very resistant skin, the exfoliation may be minimal with glycolic and salicylic acids. You will need to continue to apply the moisturizer until the skin is fully healed. Afterwards, it will be important to use sunscreen daily. You can start using your usual products again later.
