What is a chemical peel?
Chemical peel comprises exfoliating solutions like alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs) in the form of lactic, and glycolic acids; and beta hydroxyl acids (BHAs) like salicylic acid. Some solutions also include trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to remove the damaged layers of skin, revealing softer and more youthful skin from underneath.
How do chemical peels work?
The AHAs and BHAs used in chemical peels have the concentration up to 20% and 60% respectively. These highly potent Chemicals are applied to the skin, to create blisters and eventually peel off. Chemical peels can be used on the face, neck, and hands to improve the appearance of mild scars, sunspots, or dark patches caused by sun damage or postpartum.
Who can use chemical peel?
Chemical peels are clinically performed exfoliation procedures to treat rough skin, acne scars, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. Patients have reported improved results after 3 to 5 treatments, with benefits like:
What is the average recovery time after a chemical peel?
The recovery period depends on the skin type and concentration of the peel. Slight inflammation or redness is noticed immediately after the facial. Some amount of post-procedure peeling is also common which can be easily fixed with moisturizing. Peeling usually lasts three to five days and the use of gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen are vital to encourage the healing process. Therefore, sun exposure or heavy sweating should be avoided for a couple of days at least as the skin is sensitive to heat and bacteria. Most importantly, to prevent scarring, picking or peeling of flaking skin in any area must be avoided.
What products or activities should be avoided before getting a chemical peel?
It’s important to wait, at least, one week before getting your next chemical peel or any other clinical treatment. Hence, schedule your chemical peel treatment at least 7 to 10 days after waxing, electrolysis, or laser hair removal. Additionally, any prescription topicals are to be avoided before and after a chemical peel. Consult with your dermatologist before going for your chemical peel treatment if you are undergoing any laser or cosmetic facial treatment or have extremely sensitive skin.
Chemical peels are safe procedures that can produce a more youthful-looking skin from the first treatment itself. But, it's important to understand your skin type and concerns before any chemical treatment. Therefore, speak with Beauty Scripts’ certified skin therapists to clarify any skin or treatment-related concerns with a complete skin analysis. Schedule your appointment today.
