What Is a Chemical Peel?
Things with the word “chemical” in them can sound intimidating, but a chemical peel is far from frightening. In fact, this non-surgical treatment is a safe and effective way to treat a wide range of cosmetic skin concerns. When performed under a professional double board-certified dermatologist, this treatment can help you achieve clearer, healthier skin with a younger, more vibrant look.
The treatment works by applying the peel solution to a target area of the skin. While you can treat almost any body area with this, the most common areas include the face, neck, and hands as they are highly visible. The peel solution safely removes the damaged or problematic upper layers of skin. During this time, patients may feel a minor burning sensation for about 5-10 minutes as the solution does its work.
With the damaged skill removed, your body can replace it with newer, healthier skin cells. The result: skin that looks and feels fresher, clearer, and younger.

Is a Chemical Peel Right for Me?
As chemical peels are non-surgical, they are open to a wide range of patients of all ages. During your consultation with Dr. Lombardi, you can discuss your goals and he can work with you to build a personalized treatment plan that will help you reach them. As a double board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Lombardi can fully evaluate your situation and see if a chemical peel will help you achieve your goals. While it can treat a range of concerns, a chemical peel is ideal for patients who want to address concerns such as:
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Spots on the skin
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Damaged skin
- And more
A chemical peel is a powerful rejuvenating treatment, but it is still best for patients with mild to moderate concerns. For more significant wrinkling or cosmetic concerns, you may better achieve your results through one of our surgical procedures.
Is There a Recovery Period?
While a chemical peel is non-surgical, there can be a short recovery period, depending on the type of peel you had. For lighter peels, you can resume your daily routine within a couple days. However, medium or deep peels may require a more extended recovery time. Still, this recovery period is easier than surgery, and while patients may take a week or so off from work, they can still go about their daily routine at home.
There will still be some post-treatment instructions to follow that ensure your recovery goes well and your results turn out excellent. Dr. Lombardi will provide you with complete information on how to have an optimal recovery period.
When Can I See Results?
A chemical peel can take some time before you see your final results. As there can be some redness and swelling after the treatment, you might not see your improvements right away. However, as your body fully sheds the targeted skin, you can see the fresh skin beneath begin to replace it.
The number of sessions you will need will also vary, with most patients requiring 2-4 sessions. Once you complete your individual treatment plan, you should see your final results. But, you will also see significant improvements after each of your chemical peel sessions as you work toward your ultimate goals.
