What is Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that uses a chemical solution to remove the top layers of skin, improving its appearance. This process helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, acne, scars, uneven skin coloring, and skin imperfections, enhancing the skin’s texture. The applied solution causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel away. The new skin is typically smoother, less wrinkled, and more even in color.

What is Chemical Peel Effective For?

Chemical peels help treat a variety of skin issues. Here are some issues that chemical peels can address:

Acne and Acne Scars

Chemical peels help reduce acne breakouts and minimise the appearance of acne scars. The treatment exfoliates the skin, removes dead skin cells, and unclogs pores, reducing the formation of new acne.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Chemical peels can diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyes and mouth. By removing the outer layers of damaged skin, the treatment stimulates the growth of smoother skin.


Chemical peels are effective in treating pigmentation, such as age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma). The peel helps to lighten these dark areas, resulting in a more even complexion.

Uneven Skin Tone and Texture

Chemical peels can improve the overall texture and tone of the skin, smoothing rough patches, reducing the appearance of large pores, and giving the skin a brighter, more youthful appearance.

Enlarged Pores

Chemical peels exfoliate the skin and promote a smoother surface, minimising the appearance of enlarged pores.

Areas Suitable for Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are primarily used on the face but can also be applied to other parts of the body. Here are some common areas suitable for chemical peel treatment:

Chemical Peel Treatment Options

Chemical peels offer various treatment options for different skin types and concerns. The main treatment options are as follows:

Jessner Peel

The Jessner Peel, developed by Dr. Max Jessner, contains a blend of resorcinol, salicylic acid, and lactic acid. This medium-depth peel penetrates deep into the skin layers, offering several benefits. It effectively unclogs pores, reduces inflammation, and improves the appearance of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and melasma. Additionally, the Jessner Peel stimulates collagen production, which promotes skin renewal and enhances overall skin texture and tone.


BioRePeel is a powerful chemical peel composed of trichloroacetic acid (TCA), alpha hydroxy acid, beta hydroxy acid, polyhydroxy acid, vitamins, amino acids, and Gamma. This peel provides comprehensive skin rejuvenation by removing dead skin cells and stimulating skin cell renewal. It offers hydration and nourishment, combats acne, and brightens the skin. It also helps reduce the signs of premature ageing, such as wrinkles and fine lines, resulting in a more youthful and radiant complexion.

Choosing the Right Chemical Peel Treatment

The patient’s features, skin type, and any underlying medical concerns should be taken into consideration when choosing the right chemical peel therapy. A consultation with Dr. Sam Pradeep is recommended to determine the most suitable treatment.

Why Chemical Peel?

Here are some reasons why people opt for chemical peels:

Skin Rejuvenation

After a chemical peel, the skin often appears brighter and more radiant due to the removal of dead skin cells and stimulation of new cell growth.

Improvement of Skin Hydration

Chemical peels help retain moisture in the skin, improving overall hydration and reducing dryness.
