What to Expect After a Chemical Peel

When most people think of chemical peels, they probably imagine celebrity photos on grocery magazine racks featuring red and scaly skin. Those results are from outdated practices and peels that contain harmful additives. Today, the options for chemical peels are safe and provide an undisputable number of benefits. However, it is still best to be aware of the entire process, including what to expect afterward, to be best prepared for your chemical peel.


What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are a minimally invasive and quick way to smooth and soften the skin of the face. They’re often used to deal with superficial scarring like acne marks. They work by removing the top few layers of skin to reveal an even and fresh face.

What Can I Expect for Chemical Peel Recovery?

Some Sensitivity: You can expect to go back to your daily routine right after a chemical peel. There won’t be any pain or irritation, and your skin may be sensitive to harsh products like exfoliants. It’s important to wait at least two days before exfoliating after a chemical peel.


Minimal Redness or Peeling: No, your face won’t look like the celebrity tabloids that rant about the horrific effects of chemical peels. While they do work to remove skin cells, chemical peels also work to moisturize the skin, so no inflammation or agitating symptoms occur.


Instant Results: As soon as your chemical peel is complete, you can expect to reap the rewards. Immediately, you’ll have softer, tighter, smoother, equally-toned facial skin.


Follow-Up Measures: To make sure you get the most out of your chemical peel, there will be some follow-up instructions and products recommended. These will help to keep your skin looking just as good as the day of your peel.
