What Should I Expect from My Chemical Peels?
Carrying out chemical peeling is a significant burden for the skin, even if the most gentle option is selected. Therefore, proper preparation for the procedure is important.
Avoid sunbathing at least a week before the procedure. Before leaving the house, you need to apply a sunscreen cosmetic suitable for the type of your skin. You should also refuse to pluck eyebrows and hair removal in the area of chemical peeling 3-4 days before the procedure.
The treatment begins with a thorough cleansing of the skin to remove any dirt and oils. We advise our patients that they should not wear makeup or use skin care products prior to their appointments.
Once the skin has been cleaned, the chemical solution is applied and allowed to sit for a specific amount of time, usually just a few minutes.
A neutralizing solution is applied to stop the peeling process. Your skin may flake a little for a few days, depending on the depth of the peel.
After the procedure, you definitely need to refuse to stay in the sun during recovery (it depends on the type of solution and type of your skin), and it is also important to use sunscreen cosmetics. Moisturizing creams that stimulate healing are also used.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Mild peels can be repeated monthly, and medium peels can be repeated every six months. Deep peels should not be repeated.
