Many men and women choose chemical peels to address skin imperfections. Peels offer a noninvasive yet effective skin treatment and can be customized to suit a wide range of skin conditions and needs.
Here are some of the conditions that chemical peels can address:
Some peels are stronger than others, although the general procedure is similar for all types of chemical peels. The process begins with a thorough skin cleansing.
Next, your aesthetician applies a chemical solution to the treatment area. You may feel a slight burning or stinging sensation during this portion of your peel. If so, cold compresses can be used to ease those sensations.
Once the solution has had a chance to work, your aesthetician removes it and gently cleanses your face. A special moisturizer may be applied to protect your skin.
In the days following your procedure, your skin may look and feel sunburned. Eventually, your skin will begin to peel, revealing a layer of fresh, healthy, and glowing skin.
Medium or deep peels could result in significant swelling and even some blistering before your skin begins to peel. It may take between seven and 14 days before the peeling process is complete.
The answer depends on several factors, including the condition of your skin, your dedication to sun protection, and the intensity of your chemical peel. For most men and women, optimal results require four to six separate peels, spread out over a period of several months.
You can extend the effects of your chemical peels by engaging in aggressive sun protection. Wearing a hat, limiting time in the sun, and using broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen can help prevent new sun damage.
It's essential to adhere to all follow-up care instructions provided by your doctor or aesthetician. Proper use of bandages, antibacterial ointment, moisturizers, sunscreens, and other recommended products is critical to maintaining your newly radiant skin.
