If you’re a beauty addict, you may have tried all sorts of products, tools, and treatments at your disposal. When you suffer from acne, you may feel like nothing is going to work. If you’ve never had a chemical peel, you might be a little wary. Will it really help? Don’t worry. This treatment can be tailored to your skin, your needs, and gives amazing results. Keep reading to learn what happens during a chemical peel.
You may be a little anxious before your first chemical peel. The process and results are so different from what you see on TV. First, your skin will be cleansed and toned. An alcohol wipe may be used to clear any sebum off your skin. This allows the peel to dive deeper into the skin, where it can clear out acne-causing bacteria.
The peel is applied all over the face, with extra attention on areas of concern. If you’re concerned about acne, the peel will be tailored to your skin. Let us know and we can give it a little extra oomph if there are other areas you want treated. We check in with you constantly to know how well the peel is taking. Communicate with us and we’ll be able to take another pass if your skin is looking for more.
After your peel is over, we tailor the serum, moisturizer, and/or SPF which is applied to help your skin start the recovery process. You will look more glowy and hydrated, and may not peel for a day or so. Depending on the peel you get, you may peel for a few days to about a week. You may experience light flaking or full sheeting, depending on your skin and the peel you get.
Why Would I Want One?
A chemical peel can help remove the damaged layer of skin, revealing a younger-looking layer underneath. Clear skin can often be jump-started with a chemical peel, as well. Just make sure to take care of your skin, babying it as much as possible. Simplifying your skincare routine may also help you fight acne caused by excessive product use.
