How chemical peels work
Medical grade acid is applied in a controlled manner to lower the ph of the skin which loosens the connections between dead skin cells . It can affect the skin on a cellular level gently removing the damaged layers of cells that cover the healthy ones. Improvements in skin appearance generally result from a controlled series of peels with each peel being done 2-‐4 weeks apart. You should avoid having a peel done if you have had facial waxing in the past week, have a cold sore or have used topical vitamin A (retinol or retinoids) in the past three days.
What to expect from chemical peels
Depending on the type of peel chosen for your skin type and concerns, you may experience little or no downtime, or you may have some tightness, flakiness and possible peeling at day 3 to 5 of the peel. The skin is usually back to normal by day 7 of the peel. You should avoid wearing make up and avoid direct sunlight for the rest of the day. Make sure to incorporate a broad spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher during the course of your peel series.
