Types of Chemical Peels

They are categorized into three categories based on the level of penetration.

  • Skin-surface peels

  • Thick peels

Usually mild or superficial peels require anesthetic. The doctor will apply the chemical solution containing glycolic acid or salicylic acid using a cotton ball or brush. These peels simply need 2 to 3 days to heal because they don’t go deeper into the skin.

During medium peels, a cotton-tipped applicator is used to apply a trichloroacetic acid solution; occasionally, glycolic acid is also used. Up to 15 minutes of stinging is possible.

Deeper peels can be unpleasant and sometimes require substantial local anesthetic. Phenol will be applied using a cotton-tipped applicator to the treated region.
