Chemical Peel Process
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure. Depending on the issues you’re addressing, you’ll choose the chemical peel that is right for you in one of three depths:
- Light chemical peel. A light (superficial) chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis). It’s used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone, and dryness. To increase it’s effectiveness, you might have a light peel every two to five weeks.
- Medium chemical peel. A medium chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of the skin (dermis). It’s used to treat wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. You might need to repeat the procedure to achieve or maintain the desired result.
- Deep chemical peel. A deep chemical peel removes skin cells even deeper. Your doctor might recommend one for deeper wrinkles, scars, or precancerous growths. You won’t need to repeat this procedure to get the full effect.
- Please note your esthetician may recommend a patch test for some peels.
- This treatment may cause increased sensitivity to the skin depending on the skin type and home care regimen. Side effects may include but are not limited to stinging, itching or irritation, redness, swelling, tightness, peeling, and scabbing of the skin.
- Avoid the sun, tanning beds, sweating, exercising, hot baths or showers, scrubbing, picking, and rubbing, all of which can lead to scarring.
- Avoid waxing or depilatories 48 hours before and seven days after treatment.
- Discontinue the use of exfoliating scrubs, glycolic acid, or benzoyl peroxide products for at least 24 hours before and after treatment.
- Discontinue the use of prescription Vitamin A Keratolytic drugs seven days before and after treatment.
- A broad-spectrum sunscreen is recommended daily before and after treatment.
- A Post-treatment Kit is mandatory following every peeling treatment.
