In-office Chemical Peels for Acne

If you’re like most people, just hearing the words “chemical peel” can cause you to conjure up images of a red-faced Samantha Jones from Sex and the City. But we’re here to set the record straight: a chemical peel does not mean your entire face will peel off leaving raw, burnt skin. In fact, if you’ve ever used a product at home containing a chemical exfoliant like glycolic acid or retinol—then you’ve used a peel! We sat down with Jennifer Buchtien, a licensed aesthetician in our Pearland location to learn more about this popular in-office treatment.


Who is a candidate for a chemical peel?

This treatment is ideal for patients who have their breakouts under control and are ready to address any scarring and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. Once your acne is under control, we can come up with a customized plan to address your specific needs and skincare goals.

What results can they expect?

Patients can expect smoother skin texture, more even skin tone and less breakouts.

How do chemical peels work?

There are several types of chemical peels available both in the office and over the counter, but they all work in the same way. Essentially, the exfoliating ingredients in the peel work to breakdown and remove the top layer of of dead skin cells, allowing fresh, new skin to regenerate or surface. Other benefits of peels include minimized appearance of pores, reduction in the appearance of fine lines and a more even skin tone.

How many treatments?

At Advanced Dermatology, we customize treatment plans for each patient depending on their skin color, tone, texture and concerns. I typically recommend a series of peels based for optimal results.

What is involved in the recovery?

The downtime for an in-office peel varies between five to seven days. Some patients may experience side effects ranging from slight flaking to a more noticeable sloughing of the skin. As the skin continues to peel it is important to avoid excess sun exposure and picking at the skin to achieve best results.

How can I my maintain results?

Anytime I am working with a patient who has discoloration I recommend starting an at-home skincare regimen with professional grade products so they can maintain the results from their investment.
