After an in-depth skin consultation and a specific peel is recommended, your skin will be cleansed several times with both cleanser and an alcohol solution to ensure the peel penetrates the skin evenly.
The medical peel solution is then applied; during this process, it’s common to feel some stinging and a sensation of heat. A hydrating oil may then applied to speed the healing process. If your treatment was a TCA peel, it’s likely your skin will also have a slight yellow tinge which can last 1-2 hours. For several days after, your skin may feel tight and experience redness.
For a lighter peel, the actual peeling effects may be microscopic and so won’t be visible to the naked eye. For deeper peels, 2-5 days may elapse before peeling commences, which can last over a week, after which the softer, smoother skin is revealed. It’s important to avoid excessive sun exposure for 4-8 weeks after a medical peel.
During this transformation period, we’ll also recommend a skincare regime to elevate and maintain the results of your peel.
