Chemical peels, also referred to as derma-peeling & chemexfoliation, is a technique that is used for improving the appearance of the skin.During this procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, consequently causing it to blister and then eventually peel off. Following treatment, the new, regenerated skin is much smoother as well as less wrinkled in comparison to the old skin. However, the new skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun.

Chemical peels represent accelerated exfoliation or the skin damage induced by caustic agents, which cause controlled damage that is followed by the release of inflammatory mediators and cytokines, resulting in the thickening of the epidermis, the deposition of collagen, re-organization of structural elements, as well as increase in dermal volume. The process decreases the solar elastosis and replaces as well as reorients new dermal connective tissues. The result from the procedure is a clinically improved appearance of the skin, fewer rhytides as well as decreased pigmentary dyschromia.
One of the key difference in the Aellas peels as compared to other chemical peel formulations is the thixotropic gel formulation. This exceptional and unique gel formulation holds the product in its gel or solid form until it is shaken by the clinician, following which the product becomes a little more liquid-like, but not completely liquid. An obvious advantage of this thixotropic behavior is a mess-free chemical peel procedure, which eliminates the need to use dams during an application of the peel.The nano article molecular structure of the Aellas products allow a precise application of the chemical peels as well as provides an effective exfoliation and cleansing of the skin, which consequently provides high-quality results. The thixotropic neutralizing gel, which is used to stop the peeling activity is another innovative product from Aellas. This unique neutralizing gel changes its color from yellow to red after the neutrality point is reached, thus making it extremely easy for the clinician to visually determine how far the neutralization process has progressed.
How It Works
First, the skin is thoroughly cleansed using an agent that removes the excess oils while making sure that the eyes and hair remain protected. One or more chemical solutions like glycolic acid, salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid, carbolic acid, or lactic acid are applied onto small areas of the skin. These applications generate a controlled wound, and consequently enable new and regenerated skin to appear. It is very important to avoid too much exposure to sun after the chemical peel treatment because the new skin is very fragile and a lot more susceptible to complications.
Chemical peels are applied on the face, neck and hands. These peels can be used for:
- Treating wrinkles caused due to sun damage
- Reducing fine lines under the eyes as well as around the mouth
- Ageing and hereditary factors
- Improving the appearance of mild scarring
- Improving the appearance and feel of dull skin
- Treating certain types of acne
Reducing freckles, age spots, and dark patches caused due to pregnancy or birth control pills (melasma)
Areas of sun damage skin that might have pre-cancerous keratoses, which appears as scaly spots, can also improve after chemical peel treatment. After treatment, any new pre-cancerous lesion is less likely to appear.
Will a chemical peel treatment help my skin?
Chemical peel is a treatment that rejuvenates the skin. Most people benefit from the application of glycolic acid. In nearly all cases, patients would notice an improvement in their skin.
Is the chemical peel treatment painful?
Generally, patients only experience a mild stinging sensation during a light or medium chemical peel treatment. Following the procedure, the doctor might prescribe mild pain relievers in order to relieve any pain or discomfort.
Does the skin literally peel off?
A chemical peel removes the outer layers of the skin in order to lower or eliminate the appearance of various skin imperfections as well as disorders. After a patient has undergone a chemical peel treatment, the treated layer of skin slowly flakes away and reveals a new layer of skin.
How long does it take to recover after a chemical peel treatment?
The recovery time required after a chemical peel treatment depends upon the type of peel that is used, since different type of peels affect the skin to a different degree. A light chemical peel is mild and requires virtually no recovery time. Although the skin might have mild irritation after the treatment, patients can return to work and resume their daily activities almost immediately after treatment. In case of medium chemical peel, the new layer of skin appears 3 to 7 days after the treatment. The skin will completely heal around 2 weeks after the treatment. In case of deep chemical peels, the new layer of skin starts to appear 7 to 10 days after the treatment. Although complete healing could take 2 months or even longer, patients generally require a week off from work after they have undergone a deep chemical peel treatment.
When can a Chemical Peel treatment be performed?
Chemical peel treatment can be performed whenever there is damage to the skin, which needs to be removed. This treatment is best performed in the winter months when the exposure to sun is at a minimum. The age limit for this treatment is usually the early teens.
When will I get to see the results?
Patients will start noticing pink, new skin emerging from under the damaged skin which is peeling. However, it is important to remember not to peel along by pulling the old skin off. Within a couple of weeks the pinkness would start to fade for most light peel treatments. Depending on the depth of the peel, patients could have lingering pinkness which might appear similar to a mild sunburn or perhaps a flushed appearance. The physician will discuss what to expect for the depth of the peel you are undergoing.
