Personalized Chemical Peel Solutions Tailored to Your Skin's Needs

Other than facials, chemical peel is one of the popular rejuvenation treatments. This skin resurfacing treatment is done to improve skin quality. A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to the skin that encourages the new skin to grow. Chemical peel is one of the favorite treatments to brighten the skin, get healthier and glowing skin, remove the signs of aging, and treat other skin impurities. It can be done as a single treatment or combined with other treatments. 

What does a chemical peel do?

The purpose of chemical peel treatment is to improve skin quality by removing the top layer of the skin and stimulating new cell growth so the youthful and healthier skin underneath will appear. There are three types of medical grade chemical peel: light peel, medium peel, and deep peel. These types of peel will address different types of skin concerns. This skin resurfacing treatment is commonly used to treat fine wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone, often caused by sun spots, melasma, and other hyperpigmentation conditions.

Preparing for a chemical peel

The chemical peel procedures begin with cleansing the facial area or other treated areas such as the neck, underarms, and other body areas. The main step of this peeling procedure is applying a chemical solution to the skin for a few minutes. You might feel a stinging sensation once the solution is applied. After a few minutes, the chemical solution will be cleansed from the skin with a neutralizing solution. Moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied after the procedure.

What to expect from a chemical peel

Chemical peel is a quick procedure that can be done during your lunch break. The process takes only 10 minutes. However, you must wait about two weeks for your skin to heal completely. After the treatment, your skin might be red, swollen, tight, and irritated. These are common side effects of chemical peel. Chemical peel recovery takes 7-14 days. After seven days, your skin will start to peel off. When completely peeled off, healthier, brighter, and younger skin will appear. You may also notice fine lines and wrinkles become softer.

Post-chemical peel care

During recovery, it is crucial to keep your skin hydrated by using a moisturizer. You must also protect the skin from sun exposure by applying SPF 30 or above after moisturizer. Applying makeup, exfoliating, and facial treatments such as microdermabrasion and laser treatments are not recommended during this healing time. It is essential to let the skin peel naturally. Do not scratch, rub, or pick the peeling skin to avoid infection, scarring, or hyperpigmentation.
