Acne scars, blemishes, and lines can ruin the aesthetics of the face and impact the mental health of the person. It is not just the skin that suffers. In fact, all aspects of physical and mental health can be affected by these changes in the skin. 

A chemical peeling treatment, performed by a chemical peel dermatologist can help get rid of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and textured skin. 

What Does A Chemical Peel Do?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that involves a chemical solution being applied to the skin to exfoliate and remove damaged outer layers, revealing smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin. The chemical solution used for the peel can be made up of various types of acids, including alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and phenol. 

Who Can Have Chemical Peel Facial? 

Chemical peels can be a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the skin, but they are not suitable for everyone. People with sensitive skin, certain medical conditions, or a history of keloid scarring should consult with a healthcare professional before undergoing a chemical peel. 

Face Chemical Peel Treatment Duration  

The duration of the chemical peel is dependent on the type of peel and the skin type and condition. This is because the chemical peel benefits may be compromised if naive skin is exposed to strong chemicals, resulting in redness and irritation. 

Chemical Peeling Side Effects

  • Redness and irritation
  • Dryness and flaking
  • Sensitivity to sun
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Scarring
  • Infection

In rare cases, chemical peel for hyperpigmentation can cause hyperpigmentation which is why it is important to have a talk with your dermatologist to assess your skin before the chemical peel. Also, as the side effects of chemical peel depend on the severity of the peel, it is highly recommended to state with a light chemical peel. 

Chemical Peeling Treatment Recovery Time

The recovery time for a chemical peel depends on the type of peel and its strength. Here are some general guidelines:

  • Superficial peels: These are the mildest type of chemical peel and generally only require a few days to heal, you can get back to your daily life the same day.
  • Medium peels: These are stronger than superficial peels and may cause redness, swelling, and peeling for several days to a week. 
  • Deep peels: These are the strongest type of chemical peel and can cause significant peeling, redness, and swelling for up to two weeks. 

Chemical Peel Success Rate

Superficial chemical peels, which penetrate only the outermost layer of skin, typically have a success rate of around 70-80% Medium-depth peels, which penetrate deeper into the skin, have a success rate of around 50-70%. Deep chemical peels, which penetrate the deepest layers of skin, are the strongest and have a success rate of around 40-50%. 

Most people notice the successful results of the treatment by simply looking at their chemical peels before and after pictures, the latter of which will show replenished skin.

How Is Chemical Peel Procedure Performed?

Chemical peels are typically performed by a licensed skincare professional, such as a dermatologist or esthetician. Before the procedure, the skin is thoroughly cleaned and prepped. During the procedure, the chemical solution is applied to the skin using a brush or cotton swab. 

The solution is left on the skin for a specific amount of time, and then it is neutralized or removed with water. And in some cases, you might need more than one session to achieve the desired results. After the procedure, the skin may appear red and sensitive, and it may take several days to a few weeks for the skin to fully heal and reveal the final results.

Chemical Peel Aftercare

  • Avoid sun exposure
  • Keep your skin hydrated
  • Avoid picking or scratching your skin
  • Avoid using harsh skincare products
  • Avoid strenuous exercise that leads to sweating
  • Follow your doctor's instructions

Chemical Peeling Advantages And Disadvantages

Chemical peels can be an effective way to improve the appearance of the skin, but like any cosmetic procedure, they come with advantages and disadvantages. Even the best chemical peel has pros and cons and here are some of the main advantages and disadvantages of chemical peels:


  1. Improved skin texture: Chemical peels can exfoliate the outer layer of skin, revealing smoother and more even-toned skin.
  2. Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines: Peels can stimulate collagen production, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  3. Reduced appearance of sun damage and age spots: Chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of sun damage and age spots.
  4. Chemical peel for acne scars: Peels can help unclog pores and reduce the appearance of acne and acne scars.
  5. Minimal downtime: Superficial peels typically require little to no downtime, while deeper peels may require several days to a few weeks of downtime.


  1. Risk of complications: Chemical peels can cause side effects such as redness, swelling, itching, and scarring. 
  2. Sensitivity to sun exposure: After a chemical peel, the skin may be more sensitive to sun exposure, which can increase the risk of sunburn and other types of skin damage.
  3. Multiple treatments may be needed: Depending on the type of peel and the individual's skin condition, multiple treatments may be needed.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended flymedi.com. Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
