What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a non-invasive procedure that we use to treat the outer layer of skin. A chemical solution (commonly glycolic acid) will be applied to your skin, and this solution will help remove dead skin cells and other impurities. Chemical peels can improve the texture of your skin as well as reduce acne scars. You may experience some redness after the procedure, but it should go away quickly.

How chemical peels work
Chemical peels use an acidic solution to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells from the face or other part of the body. This outer layer is called the stratum corneum. Some chemical peels are mild enough to be used at home, but most should be administered by a dermatologist or other health professional.
Chemical peels can treat acne scars, brown spots, sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, and melasma (dark patches on the face). The treatment can also even out skin tone and texture and make areas of darkening lighter over time.

Psoriasis is a skin condition that causes red, scaly patches to appear on the skin. The patches are usually on the elbows, knees and scalp, although they can occur anywhere on the body. The condition is caused by an overproduction of keratin which causes the skin cells to grow much faster than normal.
The most common type of Psoriasis is called Plaque Psoriasis which causes raised, red patches that are covered with silvery scales. These patches may be itchy or painful and can crack and bleed. There are other types of psoriasis including Guttate Psoriasis which causes small, water-drop shaped sores on the trunk, arms, legs and scalp; Inverse Psoriasis which appears as very red lesions in body folds such as behind the knee, under the arm or in the groin area; Pustular Psoriasis which is characterized by white blisters filled with noninfectious pus surrounded by red skin;

The patches can vary in size, severity, and location, but they often appear on the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back.
Psoriasis is not contagious. It’s most commonly seen in adults between the ages of 15 and 35. It affects men and women equally. According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, about 7.5 million people in the United States have psoriasis. It’s estimated that 125 million people worldwide have psoriasis.
Chemical peels are one of the many non-pharmaceutical treatments for psoriasis. The treatment uses an acid solution to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. According to a report from Dermatology in Practice, chemical peels have been used for more than 100 years as a treatment for psoriasis lesions on the face and scalp.
In addition to treating psoriasis, chemical peels may be used to treat acne scars and wrinkles or to lighten dark patches on your skin. Chemical peels can be done on your face or other areas of your body where you notice roughness or discoloration.

Chemical peels use a solution to remove dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin and stimulate the production of new cells. Chemical peels are also used to treat wrinkles, age spots, acne scars and other skin conditions. Your dermatologist may perform a chemical peel during an office visit or at a cosmetic surgery center.
There are three types of chemical peels:
* light peel
* medium peel
* deep peel
A light chemical peel is often performed in a doctor’s office using a mild acid such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid. A medium chemical peel uses trichloroacetic acid or a combination of trichloroacetic acid and glycolic acid. A deep chemical peel is rarely used today and is performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility using phenol, also known as carbolic acid. Phenol can cause serious side effects, including scarring and changes in skin pigmentation. Because of these risks, many doctors won’t perform deep peels anymore. Talk to your doctor about what type of chemical peel is right for you.
