Chemical Peels FAQ's

WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL & WHAT DOES IT DO?

A chemical peel is a fast and simple procedure in which a caustic substance is applied to the skin in order to burn the epidermis. The purpose is to improve the texture of the skin by removing a controlled thickness of damaged skin in order to stimulate normal healing and skin rejuvenation.

WHAT PEEL IS BEST FOR ME?

Peels are formulated as light, medium, or deep, based on the chemicals used and how they are formulated. The treatment that's right for you will depend on what you're hoping to treat and how much downtime you're willing to endure. 

BENEFITS OF PEELING?

DOES IT HURT?

During a chemical peel you may feel some degree of discomfort during the application. Such as warm tingling sensation, stinging, pin pricking, heat [burning], or tightness. A handheld fan is used to alleviate discomfort. If at anytime it is unbearable, let your Esthetician know immediately and she will remove the peel. It will take a moment for the sensation to subside so remain calm.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER  A PEEL?

Immediately after, the face may appear frosted [white] or red. By the second day, the skin may darken in color, feel tighter, swell, and be more sensitive. Days 2 through 7, the skin may lightly flake or peel off. You are not to pick or peel the skin. Pulling or picking skin may lead to infection, hyperpigmentation, and/or surface scars. You may experience some breaking out after the treatment which is normal, avoid extractions and let the peel take its course. Not all peels experience peeling.
