Chemical Peel FAQs

What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are a category of advanced clinical skin rejuvenation treatments that aid in reversing damaged skin due to factors such as aging, sun exposure, and acne.

Who Are Candidates for Chemical Peels?

Clients who have facial blemishes, wrinkles, large pores, congestion, dull tone, acne, and uneven skin pigmentation are candidates.

How Long Will the Treatment Last?

From start to finish, the procedure should take approximately 30 minutes to one hour. There is little or no downtime and you may have some mild flaking or peeling for a few days.

When Can I Schedule My Next Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels can be done every four weeks depending on the type of peel. We recommend a series of three to six for maximum benefits depending on the skin condition being treated.

What Should I Do After My Chemical Peel?

You may be more sensitive to the sun, so limit sun exposure during treatment and for at least one week afterward. Use a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and follow the recommended home care regimen.

  • Avoid strenuous exercise for at least two to three days, as the perspiration may irritate the skin.
  • When washing your face, do not scrub and use a sensitive cleanser.
  • Do not “help” the skin peel to avoid scarring or rashes. Do not pull on or peel shedding skin. You can control the flaking with a light moisturizer.
  • Do not have any facial treatments for at least one week after your chemical peel. You may resume regular use of Retin-A, alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) products, or bleaching creams only after the peeling process is complete.
