Chemical Peels Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a common cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance of aging skin on your face, neck, chest, or hands to help you look years younger.

During a chemical peel, your provider applies a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate it and remove the top skin layer. Over time new, smoother, regenerated skin develops in its place.

Providers at the office of Edward Tangchitnob, MD, use revolutionary GlyDerm skin care products during and after the procedure. These products are free from added fragrances and known allergens, and are noncomedogenic.  

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a minimally invasive procedure your provider uses to correct the following skin conditions:

  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Skin discoloration
  • Crow’s feet and other fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and other shallow scars
  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Sagging skin
  • Rough skin


Your body’s reaction to a chemical peel is increased collagen and elastin production associated with a more youthful appearance.

What are the types of chemical peels?

Prior to treatment, your doctor discusses your medical history, examines your skin, and reviews your options to find a chemical peel that’s right for you. Examples include:

Superficial chemical peels

During a superficial chemical peel, your doctor uses alpha-hydroxy acid or another mild acid to gently exfoliate the outer layers of your skin.

Medium chemical peels

Your doctor uses GlyDerm glycolic acid applications for medium chemical peels to penetrate outer and middle skin layers.

Deep chemical peels

Deep chemical peels may involve phenol or trichloroacetic acid applications that deeply penetrate middle skin layers to remove damaged cells.

The providers at the office of Edward Tangchitnob, MD, use top-of-the-line GlyDerm chemical peels and other rejuvenation products so you can achieve the best possible results. The GlyDerm line is gentle, highly effective, and safe for all skin colors and types. You can purchase these products directly from Dr. Tangchitnob and the team.

What happens after a chemical peel?

You might experience temporary changes in skin color, redness, swelling, and skin tenderness after a chemical peel. The amount of time it takes for your skin to heal is:

  • 1-7 days for superficial peels
  • 7-14 days for medium peels
  • 14-21 days for deep peels


Apply cream, lotion, or ointment to your skin or take antiviral medications as directed. You may have to soak your skin periodically while it heals. Avoid sun exposure or wearing makeup until your provider gives you the OK, and use sunscreen to protect your skin after that.

Your doctor lets you know which at-home GlyDerm skin care products are right for you and how often to schedule repeat treatments.

Don’t settle for old, tired-looking skin that makes you self-conscious. Schedule a chemical peel at the office of Edward Tangchitnob, MD, by phone or online today.
