Rejuvenation of the upper and/or lower eyelids using chemical peels quite simple and quick procedure. It is also referred to as ‘chemical blepharoplasty. The chemical peel uses a chemical solution i.e. acids of different types, which is applied to the skin to break down the top layer. The application of acid on the skin produces "blisters" and sometimes the skin gets peeled off. This will help diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone making the skin look smoother than earlier.
The techniques exist since the mid-1800s, however, it has got actual popularity in late ’90s.
As per the report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, approximately 1.4 million chemical peels were applied in the United States in 2017.
Chemical peel is used to treat the following conditions:
It uses different types of products with varying impacts on the skin. Accordingly, there are three types of chemical peels available: superficial, medium-depth, and deep-depth.
Working of chemical peel
In the chemical peels process, the skin is reacted with acid used and causes a chemical reaction. This leads to dissolving the outer layers of dead skin and reveals spotless, flawless, lineless skin which is just under the topmost layer of skin. Hence, this results in even skin tone and texture and promotes the building of collagen.
For peeling the eye area various peelers are available. The choice of eyelid peeler depends on the safety and lifting effect on the skin of the eyelid. The alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels are ineffective as they are unable to reach the reticular dermis and modify. For treating small areas with less quantity, phenol peeler is an effective and very low risk of toxicity.

Generally, a chemical peel can be used to treat all types of patients. However, it will show a great result to fair-skinned and light-haired patients. For dark skin, it may show a good result depending upon the problem being treated.
The chemical peels can treat wrinkles, fine lines, dyschromia, keratoses and sag of eyelids successfully. However, in case of a large amount of excess skin on the lower eyelid the results may be inadequate. In these cases, surgical blepharoplasty is indicated. Further, it’s good to get expert advice from a dermatologist or plastic surgeon before going for any chemical peel treatment.
After the treatment, one needs to avoid the sun for several days and use sunglasses.
