A chemical peel is a process in which a natural acid is applied to the skin. This procedure is usually performed in a controlled environment by a doctor who is able to determine which solution is the best for your specific needs. The solution is able to reach your dermis (deep layer of the skin) and has a significant impact on the way your skin functions, moreso improving its ability to repair.

A chemical peel goes deep down into your skin’s dermis and completely removes the older/ageing cells.

So what should someone expect from a chemical peel? What will happen during the procedure?
During your chemical peel, it is very common to feel a small amount of tingling and warmth. However, your doctor will apply serums and topical vitamins in order to lessen the discomfort. You will also be given SPF 50+ sunscreen as an extra layer of protection for your skin. After the first procedure is complete, then you will be given a list of instructions on how you should take care of your skin at home.
Your Cosmetic Doctor will also ask to schedule another appointment for your check up and the next treatment. You will be expected to return at least once every month.
Caring For Your Skin After The Procedure
The time after your procedure is extremely important to the success of your chemical peel. It is crucial that you follow your doctor’s home care instructions and prevention advice. Make sure that you concentrate on faithfully applying your sunscreen. This will help to ensure that you get the most out of your chemical peel. Proper home care requires that, for a select amount of time, you stay away from any skin products which contain active ingredients. This is because, after you have had a chemical peel, the composition of your skin has changed and adding products that have harmful of ingredients in them will only worsen any discomfort you are having.
So can you expect to see a significant difference after getting your first chemical peel?
One of the most important things to realise is that chemical peels have evolved over time. At one point, people would have said that peeling was guaranteed. But now, you may see very little actual peeling of the skin. Though this should not discourage you. In most cases, changes are taking place but on a small and barely visible level. So make sure that you follow your doctor’s instructions and you will put yourself on a healthy path to beautiful skin.
