Chemical Peels FAQ

FAQ Chemical Peels

What are the best ways to prepare for a chemical peel?

Before undergoing a chemical peel, the patient can prepare their skin by using physician recommended homecare products to minimize the chance of negative reactions to the treatment and to ensure the best results from the treatment. It is important to cleanse the skin twice daily and to moisturize at least once every day prior to the treatment.

What procedures should be followed after receiving a chemical peel?

Once the patient has undergone the treatment, they will be required to use homecare products recommended by their doctor for approximately 4 or 5 days following the treatment. The patient will be expected to regularly wash the skin and properly dry it twice daily. Sun exposure should also be avoided during the healing process as well as other activities that may cause skin irritation. Lastly, the patient should be sure to avoid picking or peeling the skin, as these actions can lead to scarring.

Are there any dangerous after effects associated with chemical peels?

At most, patients experience a few days of peeling after the procedure. Skin tightness, burning, and stinging as well are common after treatment and should heal within a few days. Additional complications may include swelling, reddening, eye injury, allergic reaction, and sensitivity to sunlight. Prior to treatment, we will consult with you to decide which form of chemical peel is right for you so that side effects can be minimized.

How many treatments will be necessary?

The number of treatments required will vary from patient to patient and will depend on the purpose of the treatment as will as its intensity. Typically, 4-5 treatments, each spaced approximately three weeks apart will be required. Peels may be scheduled on a monthly basis in the case of anti-aging remedies or for maintenance programs for those with sensitive skin.
