Chemical Peels Q & A

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are a cosmetic treatment that cause the outer layer of your skin to peel away, revealing the younger skin underneath. 

During a chemical peel, your team at Limmer Dermatology applies an acidic solution that evenly exfoliates your skin. The strength of the chemical peel determines the depth of the exfoliation. 

Limmer Dermatology uses chemical peels on the face, neck, chest, or hands. 

What are the types of chemical peels?

Limmer Dermatology offers many types of chemical peels to meet a wide range of beauty concerns and goals. The types of peels available include:

Glycolic peel

The glycolic chemical peel is a light chemical peel that acts as a low-grade exfoliator. The team at Limmer Dermatology uses this peel to remove dead skin cells that cause blackheads and acne.

They also use the glycolic peel for skin rejuvenation. As you get older, your rate of skin cell turnover slows down. The glycolic peel speeds up this process, improving your skin’s tone and texture. 

Limmer Dermatology recommends monthly glycolic peels to accelerate skin cell turnover.

Perfect 10 Peels

Replenix® MD Perfect 10 Peels are stronger than glycolic peels, providing a deeper exfoliation. This peel contains a proprietary blend of acids and antioxidants to improve skin tone and texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and remove areas of hyperpigmentation.

Perfect 10 Peels are medical-grade chemical peels recommended for people who want to “peel” away their skin imperfections.

Trichloroacetic (TCA) peel

TCA peels treat many skin concerns, including skin aging, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and scarring. Most TCA peels use a medium-strength acid and require downtime after treatment. 

When can I expect to see results from chemical peels?

You can expect to see results from your chemical peel after your skin heals. The length of the healing process depends on the strength of the peel.

For lighter chemical peels, like the glycolic peel or Perfect 10 Peels, you may see improvements in your skin within a few days. Healing time following a TCA peel may take one to two weeks. 

Your dermatologist at Limmer Dermatology gives you specific instructions on caring for your skin following your chemical peel to support the healing process.
