What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. It is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution made up of acids (often naturally occurring) is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. This reveals a brighter more hydrated skin underneath and aids in the improvement of fine lines, texture, age spots as well as pigmented scars.
How severe is the peeling, and how long will the peeling last?
Peeling varies dependent on the patient and the peel used. Generally peeling will begin about 2-3 days after you have had the treatment and can last for a week or more. Peeling can range from a slight dusty, dehydrated look to the skin, to a more advanced peeling like after a sunburn.
Can a Chemical Peel be used to treat other areas of the body?
Chemical peels can also be used to treat areas such as the neck, chest and hands.
Is sun exposure permitted post peel?
Sun exposure should be limited if not avoided before and during the peel process to avoid uneven exposure.
Are Chemical Peels safe?
Yes, chemical peels are safe when they’re preformed by an experienced trained professional.
