Chemical peels are simple, short, and effective procedures to help remove old, aged skin and replace it with newer, more youthful skin. It is an outpatient procedure, meaning you do not have to stay in our office overnight. Chemical peels require specific training, and they can only be performed by doctors who are authorized exclusively through SkinCeuticals skincare professionals. Dr. Stosich will perform your chemical peel by:

  • Thoroughly washing and cleaning your skin
  • Applying one or more chemical solutions to small areas. Some of these solutions may include glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid, or carbolic acid.
  • Creating a controlled wound that will “blister” and peel off. New, smoother, and less-wrinkled skin will replace the old skin.

During a chemical peel treatment, some patients experience a slight burning sensation for 5-10 minutes; some patients also experience a stinging feeling. To help ease any discomfort, you can apply cold compresses to your skin. We will also provide additional recommendations if your discomfort persists.

Following your treatment, your new skin will be hypersensitive to the sun. It is important to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least 30 SPF on a daily basis until our doctors say otherwise. It is also a good idea to limit the time you spend in the sun, particularly between 10am and 2pm, when the sun is at its strongest. For best results after your treatment, we recommend using the SkinCeuticals homecare regimen. Our team will provide any additional post-operation instructions to care for your new and delicate skin, based on your condition. We invite you to contact us with any questions, and to learn more about how chemical peels can rejuvenate your skin!
