FAQs about Chemical Peels
How does it work?
Chemical peels exfoliate the uppermost damaged layers of your skin. A chemical solution is applied to your face to cause the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel. There are a variety of chemical peels available to treat your specific skin concerns.
What can I expect during the treatment?
During a chemical peel, you may feel a slight burning sensation that lasts 5-10 minutes. Depending upon the type of peel, a reaction similar to a sunburn occurs following the procedure. Peeling usually involves redness followed by scaling that ends within 3-7 days. Results continue to improve over 4-6 weeks. While noticeably vibrant and rejuvenated skin will appear following your first treatment, a series of 3-6 peels may be required to achieve your ultimate skin-resurfacing goals.
What are the results?
Chemical peels effectively erase imperfections and improve skin’s tone and texture. Within 7-10 days, this quick and easy in-office treatment will reveal dramatically brand new skin. Your complexion will be firmer, clearer, healthier, and more youthful.
Is a chemical peel safe?
Yes, a chemical peel is very safe for your skin. You may experience mildly dry, red, or flaking skin for several or more days after your peel.
