Professional chemical peel solutions exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface and help reveal deeper layers of fresh, healthy skin cells. The result is a more even skin tone, acne clearance, improvement in fine lines, and a glowing complexion. Monthly chemical peels can maximize your skin’s potential.
Individual results may vary depending on each patient.
The following information does not take precedence over formal pre-post instructions given by your healthcare provider.
Procedures may vary dependent on the type of chemical peel chosen. Skin is prepped using a medical degreaser to ensure the treated area is free of any oils left on the skin. The chemical agent is then applied and typically remains on the skin for 3 to 5 minutes. Most patients feel a mild stinging which is temporary and usually subsides after a few minutes.
Recovery times will vary based on the type and strength of the peel. Immediately after the peel, your skin will feel tight and may be red. Peeling usually lasts a week or so, depending on the actual peel treatment with maximal peeling typically occurring on days 3-5. Use of gentle cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen is important, as it will enhance the healing process and results. Normal activity may be resumed after the peel, however strenuous exercise and heavy sweating should be avoided for 2-3 days. Sun exposure should be avoided while skin is peeling. Exposure of treated skin to heat should also be avoided as it may induce swelling, redness and other complications under your skin. Peeling skin should be allowed to slough off naturally; picking or peeling of flaking skin is prohibited, as it may lead to scarring. Use of prescription topicals should be avoided for 3-5 days post peel.
