  • Peeling Agent
  • The peeling agent and its concentration is the most important factor in determining the peel depth. However peeling agents can be combined at lower concentrations, to achieve greater depths, reducing side effects associated with higher concentrations.

  • Availability of free Acid
  • It is important to check the pH of the peeling agent before doing the procedure. If a product eg. Glycolic acid 50% of a company with lower pH will have greater depth than Glycolic acid 50% with higher pH of another company.

  • Duration of contract
  • For AHA peels such as glycolic acid, prolonging the duration of the contact increases the depth of the peel. Hence timing of the peel is as important as the concentration. This is not required for agents such as TCA and salicylic acid, where concentration is important.
    The application of low concentrations of glycolic acid, tretinoin or salicylic acid during the period pre-peel priming thins stratum corneum, causing a uniform, even and greater penetration of the chemical agent.

  • Method of priming the patiant
  • In thick oily skin, penetration is less as compared to thin dry skin. The level of photodamage, actinic damage and presence of irregular superficial lesions such as seborrheic keratosis, dermatoses papulosa nigra, lentigo, etc can cause irregular penetration of peeling agent.

  • Characteristics of patiant's skin
  • A facial peel will show greater depth as compared to a nonfacial peel, where skin is thicker.


  • Advantages of peeling
  • 1. It is a simple office procedure, and does not require any elaborate OT setup
    2. The procedure is easy to learn and practice, with a short learning curve, particularly for beginners.
    3. It is safe and effective with minimal complications.

    5. No significant postoperative care is required, except for deep peels.
    6. There is no risk of systemic toxicity except for phenol peels
    7. Chemical agents are easy to procure and are stable
    8. There is a wide array of chemical agents that can be used for peeling, hence treatment can be individualized , according to skin type.
    9. Procedure and chemicals are inexpensive and easily affordable to most patients.
    10. Chemical peeling has been well studied and there is vast long-term experience with peeling agents.
