Medical Peels (Chemical Peels)

Proven, Scientific, Versatile

What are
Chemical Peels?

The fundamental principle of skin peeling has been employed since ancient times. It is said that Cleopatra used to bathe in sour milk, which made her skin very beautiful. Of course, we now know that it was the lactic acid in the milk which helped the process of beautification.

The idea behind skin peeling is to carry out a controlled injury to the skin such that when the skin heals, it becomes a lot more supple and clear. This process of controlled injury to the skin by use of medical solutions is called skin peeling and the solutions themselves are called Chemical or Medical Peels.

The name Peels are used to denote that the skin peels after a treatment but this not entirely true. In reality most peels are very gentle and cause at maximum gentle exfoliation.

Who is Chemical Peels
suitable for?

If you are concerned about the texture of your skin or its elasticity and have any of the below conditions, Chemical Peels Treatment may be suitable for you.

If you are concerned about skin pigmentation and darkening and have any of the below conditions, Chemical Peels Treatment may be suitable for you.

If you are concerned about signs of ageing showing on your face and have any of the below conditions, Chemical Peels Treatment may be suitable for you.

There are chemical peels which act more on the superficial levels which can help clear up dead skin cells and undlog the pores of the skin, which in turn reduces bacterial growth. Also there are chemical peels available which are deep acting and can help improve cellular turnover and cause a peeling action. After healing of the skin there is seen to be a marked reduction in acne scars. However multiple sessions are needed to see such substantial results.

The most common reasons why patients seek full body skin rejuvenation are:

  1. Chronic Generalized (wide spread) dry and dull skin
  2. Generalized spread of marks and spots on large parts of the body like back etc. because of acne and other conditions.
  3. Generalized darkening of skin or tanning because of sun exposure
  4. Need for improving the overall texture and elasticity of the skin.
What are the Types of
Chemical Peels?

The peels are largely classified by how deep they can penetrate the layers of the skin. The loose classification is:
Superficial Peels, Medium Deep Peels, Deep Peels
Obviously, the deeper a peel penetrates, the greater the effect. However, please note that not all peels are suitable for all patients and all conditions. Hence, it is recommended that any form of skin peeling is done only under the close supervision of an experienced dermatologist.

But, for quick reference, here are some of the common and not-so-common peels that are used, and the advantages one can expect from each of them:

  1. Alpha Hydroxy Peels – These are the mildest form of peels. These work towards making the skin tone even and generating a ‘glow’.
  2. Beta Hydroxy Peels – These are largely used for acne.
  3. Retinoid Peels – These are used for clearing up the skin and achieving an even skin tone.

  1. Combination Peels – These include medium deep peels, and their usage is best determined by a dermatologist on a case to case basis.
  2. TCA Peels – For deep pigmentation patches, a dermatologist may choose these types of peels. These are also medium deep peels and should be handled carefully.
  3. Phenolic Peels – These are very deep peels and not commonly used.

Warning: Never use any form of peels by yourself, or without the supervision of a trained dermatologist.

Medical Peels

The procedure itself is quite simple and relaxing. The aesthetician will carry out a deep cleaning of the treatment area and then apply the peel solution, which will be left on for the specified time (generally a few minutes, as directed by the dermatologist), and then clean the same. The patient feels a mild stinging sensation when the peel is applied. The procedure is generally ended with a cleansing and hydration process.

All creams should be stopped for a few days before and after the procedure.
Pre and post-procedure, there should be no prolonged sun exposure.
Avoid any beauty procedures for a few days before and after the procedure.
Scrubbing and rubbing of treated area should be avoided.
Avoid using makeup and other beauty products on the treated area for up to 2 days after the procedure.
Waxing and threading should be avoided for up to a week after the procedure

Over the next few days, based on the peel used, there may be a visible residual redness of the skin, or even actual peeling of the skin in some cases. But this is to be expected, as it is a part of the rejuvenation process.

The best results of a peel are seen from the next day (for milder peels) to the next week (for stronger peels). The end result is an improvement of skin health where the skin feels fresh and more supple with a reduction in the condition being treated, be it pigmentation, scars, acne or any of the others mentioned.

However, like most beauty procedures, peels are an additive process. If applied regularly, then with every session there is an incremental improvement. And yes, before too long, you will see a visible transformation.

Based on the expected results and the condition being treated, Dr. Sejal recommends a frequency varying from twice a month to once in three months.

Modern dermatology has made the process of skin peeling a lot more efficient and safer. The solutions used now have been rigorously tested by the companies that produce them, for both efficacy and safety.

Although the procedure is generally very safe, I recommend that peels be done by trained aestheticians only and under the watchful eye of a qualified dermatologist.

Also, a common myth with peels is that once you stop using them, the treated area turns darker. This is absolutely untrue and any darkening observed is generally because of prolonged sun exposure.

Rest assured, skin peeling is among the most widely used procedures by dermatologists for the purpose of skin rejuvenation.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are practically no side effects of this treatment. There may be a mild redness or tenderness in the treated area which will automatically subside in 48 hours.

Like all skin rejuvenation procedures, the longevity of the results depends on how one takes care of their skin. In case of non protected exposure to sunlight and pollution the results of chemical peels tends to go away. It is best to protect your skin from environmental factors such that there is a control in pigmentation and oxidative stress on the skin.

This is an absolute myth. There is no degradation in the condition of your skin in case one stops any skin rejuvenation treatment.

The recommended period between two chemical peel treatments in 30 days at minimum. However in some cases where combination peels are used, the recommended time frame can be dropped to 15 days by your dermatologist.

This is a simple procedure in which case the only care needed is adequate protection from sun and to avoid any other treatments to skin. One can go back to their regular activity immediately after the treatment.

The chemical peels in question are medical grade peels applied under the supervision of a trained dermatologist. These also work on the superficial layers of the skin and hence do not bring about any constitutional change in your skin.

Most people experience a mild stinging or burning sensation during the procedure. However, the sensation is usually tolerable and subsides quickly. Your dermatologist may apply a cooling gel or fan to help alleviate any discomfort.

The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes, but the duration can vary depending on the type of chemical peel you are undergoing. Your dermatologist will inform you about the expected duration before starting the procedure.

Chemical peels can be done on most skin types, but it is important to consult with a dermatologist to determine if the procedure is right for you. People with certain skin conditions, such as eczema or rosacea, may not be good candidates for chemical peels.

Your dermatologist will provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare for the procedure. Generally, you will need to avoid waxing, shaving, or using any exfoliating products on the treated area for a few days before the procedure. You should also avoid exposure to the sun and use sunscreen regularly.

Associated Procedures
That Can Help
Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser Skin Rejuvenation uses the ability of laser to target and treat blemishes in the skin that are caused by environmental factors and lifestyle choices. At InUrSkn we use Nd Yag Lasers to treat a variety of conditions ranging from simple overall tanning to concentrated pigmentation marks and birthmarks.

Vampire Facial (PRP Facial)

PRP treatment uses platelet-rich plasma, which is taken from your own blood in order to produce results. Dermatologists use different names for this procedure like Vampire Facial, Blood Facial, Sanguine Facial, PRP Facial and so on, but don’t let that scare you. Beyond the scary name lies a natural proven mechanism which is extremely effective.

Skin Polishing (Microdermabrasion)

Skin polishing or microdermabrasion is a procedure that involves removing superficial dead layers of the skin to reveal the underlying ‘fresh’ layer of skin and help stimulate fresh cell growth. This is among the most popular, proven and tested procedures.

Iontophoresis (Ionization)

Iontophoresis Therapy (often referred to as ionization) is a procedure which involves delivery of medication, serum or peel into the deeper layers of skin by means of stimulating the skin with low intensity galvanic current.

Medical Skin Cleanup

The process of getting rid of any whiteheads, blackheads and comedones along with removal of deep embedded dirt, grime and sebum is called a skin clean-up. This procedure is done with instruments designed to pick on your skin and exfoliate your skin, and hence it is best done in the sterilized environment of skin clinic and not a spa or salon to prevent any infections.

Skin Resurfacing – Microneedling

Skin Resurfacing or Micro Needling is a process in which controlled micro-wounds are created on the skin. These micro wounds tend to help in boosting the process of collagen and elastin synthesis in the skin leading to a smooth and supple skin.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser Skin resurfacing is the process in which an ablative laser is used for the purpose of improving the texture of your skin. At InUrSkn we use the gold standard of ablative lasers for this purpose, namely CO2 Laser. Dr. Sejal expertly uses this laser with fine controls in a fractionated mode to help patients with a variety of conditions like scars, stretch marks, open pores and so on.

Oxygen Facial

An Oxygen facial (also called CO2 facial) works towards improving the metabolism of skin cells and increasing the collagen levels in your skin by a phenomenon called Bohr’s effect. This is the phenomenon in which by generating CO2 on the outer layer of skin, there is an increase in the O2 levels in the deeper layers of the skin. The increase in oxygen improves cell growth and cell biosynthesis leading to a better, younger looking skin.


A hydrafacial is an extensive all in one facial which uses a variety of techniques to achieve fresher, healthier and younger looking skin. The facial starts with techniques that cleanse and exfoliate and then moves on to revitalizing the skin with hydrating and brightening serums. This is then followed by steps which help in activation of collagen generation and tightening the skin. The final steps aim at soothing the skin while locking the serums in the deeper layers of the skin.

Carbon Laser Peel

A Carbon Laser Peel is called by different names like China Doll Peel or Hollywood Facial, but at its core is a Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment. In this procedure the carbon ‘peel’ or ‘mask’ is used to enhance the efficacy of the laser to achieve an gentle yet thorough exfoliation of the skin. In addition to this exfoliation the procedure retains the advantages of conventional laser skin rejuvenation towards reducing skin pigmentation.

Laser Spot Reduction

Laser spot reduction is the process in which we use Nd Yag Lasers in a focused mode to treat distinct marks and spots on your skin. These lasers are suitable to treat a wide variety of spots and marks on your skin including but not limited to birthmarks, Age Spots, PIH marks etc. The wavelength of the ND Yag Laser is such that it is able to target and treat the excess melanin in these spots which leaving the surrounding area unharmed.

HA Injectable Treatment

The occurrence of Hyaluronic Acid in deeper layers of our skin is the reason why our skin remains taut, supple and fresh. But with ageing and other lifestyle choices there is a reduction in the HA levels in the skin.

To help restore the HA levels, a Hyaluronic product called Volite is injected into the middle layers of the skin. This helps hydrate the skin from within, improves the elasticity of the skin and promotes collagen synthesis.

Meso Skin Therapy

Mesotherapy is the mechanism by which a serum consisting of growth factor proteins is delivered into the middle layers (mesoderm) of the skin using either injections or ionization.

These growth factors help towards resolving issues like lower cellular metabolism or poor blood circulation and hence help in overall improvement of skin quality.

Scar Treatment with Fillers & Threads

Dermal Fillers and Medical Threads are generally used for helping reduce signs of ageing like wrinkles, sagging skin and volume loss. But because of their property of being able to help stimulate collagen and elastin, they are also used as effective treatments for depressed scars like boxcar scars and rolling scars.

Medical Facials

A medical facial is generally a combination of skin rejuvenation procedures designed to suit your skin type and also to help you achieve your skin health goals.

The procedure involved in these customer medical facials are all medically proven to be safe and effective and are all done under the supervision of a qualified dermatologist.

Full Body Skin Rejuvenation

Full Body Skin Rejuvenation is the extension of skin rejuvenation techniques to the entire body or larger areas of the body like back, arms, legs etc. These procedures maybe sought for reasons ranging from purely aesthetic to medical issues. A variety of skin rejuvenation techniques ranging from lasers to peels and ionization can be extended to larger body parts based on the desired outcome.

Microneedling Radio Frequency (MNRF)

Microneedling Radio Frequency, also known as RF microneedling or Morpheus8, is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to rejuvenate the skin. This treatment involves the use of a device that delivers radio frequency energy through tiny needles that puncture the skin, creating microchannels. The process helps to promote collagen production, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin.

Plasma Fibroblast

Plasma fibroblast is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure that helps to lift, tighten, and regenerate skin. At InUrSkn, we use state-of-the-art plasma fibroblast technology that creates microtrauma to the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This treatment helps to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and pigmentation.
