All About Chemical Peels
Chemical peels have a simple objective, to peel away dirt and dull skin cells and reveal smoother and more radiant skin hiding underneath. The entire process of stripping away years of skin damage sounds complicated but it actually is completely non-invasive and painless. This is also why they’ve been trending more than ever.
Chemical peels can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and even breakouts with as few as three sittings. Also, due to modern technology, they have no downtime whatsoever.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are not recommended for scars or wrinkles that are very deep. For the most part, healthy people can safely receive chemical peels.
How Do I Prepare for a Chemical Peel?
It is important to get in touch with a dermatologist before finalizing your chemical peel session. As chemical peels can be of various types, with each type targeting a specific skin issue. The more customized your chemical peel session is, the better the result would be.
What Happens During a Chemical Peel Session?
The chemical peel is performed by the dermatologist without the use of anaesthesia or local numbing. In cases where a deeper chemical peel is needed, mild sedative medication may be used on the day of the procedure.
Before the process begins, the skin is fully cleansed and dried thoroughly, after that the steps and methods to protect your eyes, nose, hair, and mouth are taken.
The Chemical peel itself is a process of applying a chemical solution to the skin and then allowing it to sit. When this is happening, a slight stinging or discomfort might be felt. Depending on the type of chemical peel being used, a neutralizing agent might be used in the treatment area. Most often the entire area is treated at once.
Throughout all the steps, the team at Cult Aesthetics makes sure that the patient is completely comfortable.
What Would Happen After My Chemical Peel?
If the right peel was used correctly by the professional then you need not worry about bad reactions, however, slight side effects are common and often very short-lived. Each person will react differently to skin treatment of different kinds.
How Does The Entire Peeling Process Take Place?
The Peeling Process: For the first few hours some redness can be felt, for the first few days you may notice dryness and irritation. After the 2nd or 3rd day your skin may look flaky which is the sign of it starting to peel. 3 to 4 days after the treatment the skin starts looking tan or darker than usually. After approximately a week the skin begins to feel normal with all the side effects gone. After the 7th day, during the 2nd week from the day of treatment, you’ll notice the formation of healthy and new skin.
How Frequently Should I Get Chemical peels?
Most people think that all the results can be achieved with just one chemical peel session. In reality, several treatment sessions are needed to see the desired outcomes. Discuss the best route and frequency with your dermatologist for maximum benefits.
