The process of chemical peeling involves the application of an agent to the skin, which causes controlled destruction of a part of the skin which is eventually followed by regeneration of new epidermal and dermal tissues or new skin.
Are these chemicals safe to be applied on the skin?
Chemical peels are actually derived from natural sources e.g. glycolic acid (derived from cane sugar), salicylic acid, (extracted from willow tree), TCA (modified from common vinegar) etc. and are one of the most commonly performed aesthetic procedures worldwide, which speaks volumes about their safety. Like all procedures if done under supervision of a qualified dermatologist, chemical peels are relatively safe.
What can go wrong? Will my skin become sensitive?
In Indian skin, typically we use superficial chemical peels, which result in superficial shedding of the skin cells. When we use a medium to deep depth peel that’s when the patient is more prone to side effects such as pigmentation and rarely scarring. Skin sensitivity rarely occurs in individuals wherein repeated peeling for prolonged periods or very frequent sessions have been administered.
Who all can get it done?
After thorough examination, the chemical peel is chosen according to the indication and the skin type of the individual. The right peel can be chosen for the right kind of skin and the right indication as per your dermatologist’s advise. People with extremely sensitive skin, active infections and those on topical or oral retinoids and /or alpha and beta hydroxyl acids topically may practice caution.
- Mild to moderate grades of acne
- Superficial acne scars

What’s the down time? can I go to work the next day?
Barring some peels or medium to deep depth peels with adequate photo protection you can go to work even right after the peel. They are commonly known as “lunch time” peels.
