How Does a Chemical Peel Work?

What Can a Chemical Peel Treat?

Chemical peels have been shown to help improve several minor skin concerns caused by ultraviolet radiation exposure and natural aging, including age spots or dark spots, irregular areas of skin pigmentation, rough skin and scaly patches, freckles, the appearance of scars, acne and acne scars, minor wrinkles and fine lines, and more.

Some skin problems—such as loose or sagging skin, deep lines or wrinkles, broken capillaries, deep scars, and visible overly large pores—are best addressed with something other than chemical peels.

What Chemical Peel Results Can Be Expected?

Patients who get chemical peels at Naperville’s John Bull Center most commonly report mild and temporary itching, redness, and burning sensations after their treatment. These side effects typically resolve within a few days.

Because chemical peels leave skin temporarily more vulnerable to damage from the sun, you need to take extra care in the days after your treatment: Minimize sun exposure as much as possible—especially during hours of direct sunlight—and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen and wide-brimmed hat if you must go out.
