Chemical Peels

Frequently Asked Questions

Below is some information to provide you with a better understanding of the Chemical Peel procedure.

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel uses different acids to remove damaged or aged skin, revealing healthier, younger, and softer skin. They can range from very mild to very strong, depending on the patient’s needs.  Typically, mild peels will result in minimal peeling but can still rejuvenate the skin, where a stronger peel will result in more significant peeling (like a bad sunburn) but with even more dramatic results.

When do you see results after a chemical peel?

Short term patients notice an instant healthy glow and softer skin. Long term with regular treatments and pre and post peel at home care, results are more dramatic leaving you will healthier, smoother, more even-toned skin.

What should I expect after a chemical peel?

Immediately after, your skin may feel tight and dry like after a sunburn. Typically, within 2-3 days you will notice some peeling or flaking. On average it takes about a week for your skin to heal and reveal your healthy new skin. During this process you should avoid using retinols three days prior to your peel and 5-7 days post peel.
