Your radiant appearance is ready to be revealed
What can I expect during my chemical peel treatment?
Your chemical peel will start with a thorough face cleaning, followed by the application of the peel you decide to receive. Exact steps, both before you arrive and for recovery after you leave, will be determined by the level of peel you choose. The stronger the peel and the deeper it penetrates, the longer the recovery time will be. A light chemical peel can give skin a healthy, youthful glow for months. Deeper peels can generate results that last for years.
Every peel will ultimately result in a sensation similar to a sunburn. The strongest peel may require an anesthetic (topical numbing cream) to maximize the comfort of your chemical peel experience. In the days following your chemical peel treatment, you may experience color change or flaking as your outermost layer of skin falls away. Patients must take extra care to avoid sunlight and other sources of UV radiation while they are healing.
