What are the benefits of a chemical peel?
Chemical peels can help with skin discoloration, acne breakouts, reduce the look of fine lines & wrinkles, improve skin texture, reverse skin damage, and stimulate collagen production!
What should I expect at my chemical peel appointment?
First you will consult with your provider to determine which peel works best for your skin goals. The first step is to degrease any oils on the skin to make sure the active ingredients of the chemical peel are able to penetrate deep into the skin. Your provider will then apply the peel solution to your skin and let it sit on your skin for a minute or longer depending on how your skin reacts to the solution. You may notice a little stinging, warmth, or discomfort depending on the chemical peel. This sensation is normal & is tolerable. Lastly, the provider with neutralize the peel with water if the peel requires it. Your provider will be with you throughout the process to ensure that you are comfortable during the treatment. Once you’re all done with the treatment, we will provide you with aftercare instructions to make sure that your healing process is smooth & quick.
What should I expect after my chemical peel?
You should expect some flaking on day 2, and peeling on days 3-5. You should notice the peeling stop & be replaced by gorgeous, glowing skin on day 7!
If you don’t notice heavy peeling, don’t worry! This usually means that you are already well exfoliated on the surface therefore, the exfoliation is happening at a cellular level which does not cause heavy peeling.
Don’t forget to wear sunscreen as your skin is extremely sensitive for a few weeks after a chemical peel!
