3. Who is considered a good candidate for a chemical peel?

This treatment is appropriate for patients who want to improve their skin texture and appearance. If you are suffering from fine lines, skin discoloration, enlarged pores and other imperfections on your skin, consider having a chemical peel.

4. How should I prepare for a chemical peel?

You can prepare your skin for a chemical peel two weeks beforehand so that it will give you the best results. This may not guarantee the total absence of pigmentation issues but it surely reduces the chances of it occurring significantly.

5. How does the treatment actually feel like?

A slight sting will be felt upon application, but this will subside a few minutes after. Should the discomfort increase inform the aesthetician immediately.

6. How long does the treatment take?

Typically a chemical peel treatment does not take any longer than 15 minutes.

7. What benefits can I get from a chemical peel?

Thanks to its unique action of breaking the bonds of old and damaged skin, a chemical peel clears away dead skin cells on the surface. It also stimulates the production of a new skin cell layer which leads to the improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, spots, and acne marks. It improves skin dryness and it also treats a number of mild conditions.

8. What are the risks involved with a chemical peel?

The possible risks that one can experience in a chemical peel treatment includes, redness, acne, infection, scarring, and damage to the heart, liver or kidney in very rare cases due to a particular substance called phenol.

9. What can I expect after a chemical peel treatment?

A chemical peel can leave the skin with a youthful glow thanks to the improved texture and appearance. However, your skin may look a bit red after treatment, but this will simply disappear at the end of the day. For superficial peeling, this would usually involve redness which is followed by some scaling which usually resolves in three to seven days. For medium-depth peels, swelling and water blisters can peel off within a week or two. It is important that you avoid sun exposure during this time so that it does not result to discoloration.

10. How many treatments should I get for the desired results?

This may vary for each patient depending on what the aesthetician observes upon evaluation. A recommended program would comprise a peel for every week for six weeks. This will give a patient a more appealing and lasting result. Improvement can already be observed after a single treatment already, but a few more provides optimum results.
