What To Expect
Chemical peels are done in our office-based procedure room. Typically, the healthcare professional cleans your face before the peel as well as covers your eyes and hair.
In most cases, pain relief is not needed if you’re undergoing a light chemical peel.
During the procedure, the chemical solution will be applied and the treated skin will soon begin to whiten or even turn grey. After a period of time, we will apply a neutralizing solution to wash the chemical solution from the treated skin.
After your chemical peel, treated skin will be red and irritated, and you will likely need protective ointment such as petroleum jerry to soothe the area.
Chemical peels can take anywhere from one day to fourteen days to heal depending on the treatment itself. Please schedule a free consultation to learn more.
