    Chemical Peel: A Complete Guide

    Chemical peeling is a specific exfoliation treatment that deeply clears clogged pores without damaging the epidermis. When applied with care, chemical peels can rejuvenate the skin, improving the complexion and giving it a smoother, brighter, more youthful appearance.

    Chemical peels are generally suitable for all skin types. However, they should be avoided by people with open wounds or those who have had cosmetic procedures such as laser resurfacing or dermabrasion within the past six months. 

    It is also advisable to avoid chemical peels if you are currently taking certain medications, especially isotretinoin or oral corticosteroids.

    A consultation with a dermatologist is essential before undergoing a chemical peel. This will allow you to determine the type of peel and concentration best suited for your skin. Our dermatologists in Türkiye are specially trained to assess your skin type, understand your concerns, and discuss your desired results. With this approach, they can design a customized treatment plan that will perfectly meet your expectations.

    Chemical Peel Process

    Before a chemical peel, it's important to prepare the skin by following a dermatologist-recommended skincare routine. This may include using a gentle cleanser, exfoliant, or moisturizer. It's also important to avoid sun exposure and always wear sunscreen to protect the skin from further damage. 

    During the chemical peel process, the skin is carefully cleansed to remove any excess sebum or impurities. A chemical solution is then applied to the face or specific areas to be treated. This solution is left to work for a certain amount of time, depending on the desired depth of peel and individual tolerance. During this phase, individuals may feel a slight tingling sensation. 

    After the chemical peel, the skin is usually soothed with a neutralizing solution or cool compress. A moisturizing cream or ointment may be applied to promote healing and prevent dryness.

    It is important to follow post-treatment instructions carefully, including avoiding excessive sun exposure and using gentle skin care products. 

    Over time, chemical peels can help improve skin tone, texture, and firmness.

    Side Effects of Chemical Peels

    In addition to its many benefits, chemical peels can cause a few side effects, including:

    • Redness.
    • Swelling.
    • Temporary tingling immediately after the procedure.
    • Drying of the skin.
    • Increased sensitivity to the sun.

    These side effects are often mild and disappear within a few hours or days. Depending on the depth of the peel, some individuals may experience some discomfort or burning during application.

    In some cases, however, chemical peels can cause more serious side effects. Deep peels, especially those using TCA or phenol, are more likely to cause complications. These stronger peels may require more downtime. During this time, the skin will be raw and may require the application of ointments to aid in healing. It is important to follow the aftercare instructions carefully to avoid infection or scarring

    For example, people with darker skin are more susceptible to irregular changes in skin color after a peel. In fact, they may be at greater risk of developing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.
