HANDS OFF The main goal of a chemical peel is to “burn” off the damaged skin. When the dead skin starts to shed, avoid touching, picking or scratching it with your fingers. Let the dead skin shed off naturally. Don’t peel the skin off with your own fingers. Using fingers to remove the dead skin can lead to possible scarring.
MOISTURIZE After receiving a chemical peel, the skin will be sensitive. You do not want to use the same products or follow the same regimen as usual after treatment. The only two products you’ll want to use on your skin during the peeling process are sunscreen and moisturizer.When applying the moisturizer to the skin, be careful not to rub or scrub it in. Gently apply a thick layer of moisturizer all over the skin multiple times throughout the day, if needed. You’ll be able to go back to your regular skincare routine once the peeling process is complete, generally within a week of receiving the chemical peel.
PROTECT WITH SPF You’ve just gone through the process of getting rid of damaged skin with a chemical peel. Avoid damaging the new, vulnerable skin coming through by protecting it with a layer of sunscreen anytime exposure to the sun is possible. Whether sitting by a window or being outside, you need to protect your new skin. Be sure to choose a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
LET IT PEEL Do not remove any of the dry, dead skin with any sort of exfoliation during the peeling process.
SKIN CARE ADD-ONS
Why it's special: A chemical peel is the application of a chemical substance such as glycolic acid (AHA) or salicylic acid (BHA) that gently exfoliates the surface. A series of peel treatments improves the appearance of uneven pigmentation while making your skin look softer, smoother, and more radiant.
After a series of treatments you can expect improvement in overall appearance as well as in sunspots, sun damage, acne scars, and dryness. We recommend three sessions 4-6 weeks apart and maintenance treatments every 4 to 12 weeks after that. You will notice improvement after each treatment.
An experienced aesthetician will review your symptoms and recommend which peel and how many treatments are appropriate. Peels can treat a variety of symptoms- active acne, aging, sun damage, pigmentation irregularities, and more. Pricing is custom depending on which solution is chosen and the size of the area treated.
