What Is Involved In My Chemical Peels?

When applying a chemical peel, the face is first prepared for the solution. After that, the solution is brushed over the face for a certain amount of time. Once the process is complete, a neutralizing solution is applied to stop the peel. Chemical peels are typically offered in three levels:

  • Light peels
  • Medium peels
  • Deep peels

What To Expect After Chemical Peels?

Following a chemical peel Birmingham patients may have some flaking or peeling as the dead skin falls away. Depending on the level of the chemical peel, your skin may range from a light or darker pink as the new skin replaces the damaged skin. With light chemical peels, you may apply a specific moisturizer to minimize the flaking. Medium and deep peels often require more recuperation and healing.

When Will I See The Results From My Chemical Peel?

With light chemical peels, the results are subtle and may require a few treatments to achieve the desired look. It usually takes a few days after each treatment to see visible results. Medium and deep chemical peels take several weeks to heal fully but feature more dramatic results once healed.
