How the skin responds to the peel depends on the skin type as well as the type of peel used. This also affects the healing process. Depending on the type of chemical skin peel treatment you receive, you will be provided with individualised instructions afterwards. There are, however, some general instructions that should be followed afterwards. These are:
A right skin peel which suits your skin type is highly unlikely to cause skin burning. As we will choose the most suitable peel for your skin type, there will be minimal burning sensation. You may experience slight stinging during the application but it will fade in just few minutes.
At the beginning of the treatment, your skin is cleansed thoroughly with a cleanser. After that a chemical skin peel solution is cautiously applied on your skin. It will remain on your skin for few minutes depending on the type of skin and peel and then it is removed.
The complete treatment takes about 15- 30 minutes in total. After the treatment you can immediately get back to your routine activities.
At times, you may be instructed to follow a simple home care regime before you have the peel treatment. This may involve the use of some skin care products before you finally come for the peel treatment.
The most popular peels used at CosmeDocs are the peels with mild to moderate strength. These peels may cause mild redness and swelling which usually go away in few days. Sloughing (peeling) may be experienced but it is usually tolerable and does not interfere much with your routine activities. This situation usually resolves in almost 7 days.
It is recommended that you have the chemical skin peel treatment ideally in winter season because during winter the skin is less exposed to sun. You should not undertake the treatment if you are going on holiday to a country with hot climate or before any special occasion. It is important to note that it is always advisable to apply sun screen and particularly after having the skin peel treatment.
At CosmeDocs, microdermabrasion is frequently performed after the chemical skin peel treatment which helps in maximizing the results.
It largely depends on the concern of individuals and the desired outcomes. You can purchase these in the form of package which is available at reduced prices.
