After your personal skincare assessment your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and prepped for a chemical peel to be applied. The peel is applied using gentle motions evenly over the face. Your neck, chest, and hands can also be treated. The peel is left on for 1-10 minutes, depending on the peel, and is then neutralized. Proper after-care products are applied to treated areas and at-home instructions are reviewed.
Some peels cause the skin to shed dramatically, while others cause just some mild flaking. Rest assured, your skin will benefit from a chemical peel even if you don’t necessarily “peel.” The chemicals actively improve the skin even if the shedding doesn’t occur. We will review what to expect after your treatment based on the type of peel you received. In most cases, you can expect your skin to peel over a period of 7-10 days.
