What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels are unique skincare formulations that exfoliate the uppermost layers of the skin, i.e., the epidermis. The uppermost layers of the skin contain dead skin cells, debris, oil residue, and other impurities that clog the pores, leading to a dull complexion, acne breakouts, and other skin conditions. Chemical peels slough away the dead and damaged skin cells, thereby opening up the skin pores and revealing smoother, softer, and more even-textured skin underneath. Our medical providers offer the most effective chemical peels in Clearwater based on your unique needs.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Your chemical peel experience at Skinology

Skinology performs a highly personalized chemical peel treatment according to your unique skin type and condition. Chemical peels come in numerous forms — different chemical formulations lead to different levels of peeling, ranging from mild to severe. Mild peels involve no downtime, but deep peels involve several days of downtime. Our medical providers examine your facial skin, discuss your goals, and curate the ideal chemical peel formulation. The chosen chemical peel is carefully layered onto your skin over 30 to 60 minutes.


What are the side effects of chemical peels?

You may feel a little burning and tingling sensation when the chemical peels are applied to your skin. The medical provider will apply a cooling gel after your chemical peels in Clearwater to soothe your skin, but you may still experience mild post-treatment redness, swelling, discomfort, tenderness, and irritation. The side effects may last for several days.

When will the peeling start?

The peeling action may start 48 to 72 hours after the application of your chemical peel. The peeling is minimal and can be controlled with moisturizers. Please don’t pick at the peeling skin — allow the skin cells to peel away naturally. If you pick at the peeling skin, you may suffer from hyperpigmentation and other harsh side effects.

Is there any downtime?

Mild chemical peels don’t involve any downtime, but harsh chemical peels involve several days of downtime. When you need to take time off work after your procedure depends on your specific procedure. The medical provider will provide an overview of your aftercare guidelines and activity limitations. Most patients need to avoid direct sunlight for a few days.
