If you suffer from problematic, blemish-prone skin, uneven pigmentation, or intractable wrinkles, a chemical peel may be the perfect solution for your woes.
After Your Peel
AHA peels tend to be gentle enough that they do not require any recovery; however a deep phenol peel will call for the skin to be coated with healing ointment and protective dressing post-treatment. To aid in your comfort, your doctor may also prescribe pain relievers after a deep or medium chemical peel. You may experience some swelling with the more intense treatments, as well as scabbing or crusting, but these symptoms are typically short-lived and only last a few days. Patients should temporarily avoid overuse of the facial muscles and excessive chewing in order to let the skin heal. Within around 10 days, you should see a gorgeous new layer of pristine, pock-free skin begin to emerge. Remember to protect your new skin by wearing sunblock every day.
