Taking about 15 minutes in the office, the chemical peel is pain-free. No anesthetic or topical numbing is required. Patients will normally experience a mild tingling sensation as each layer is applied, but this is short lived. Once the skin is prepped, the aesthetician will apply the peel, which may be up to three layers, depending on the individual’s skin condition. A final, fourth layer will be applied to neutralize the acids in the peel. Patients are then able to return to their normal activities.
Immediately after a chemical peel, the skin may be mildly swollen and red, although these will fade quickly. Two to three days after the peel, the skin will begin to lightly peel. This process will continue for the next three to four days; after about a week, the skin should be fully healed. It requires less downtime than other, more traditional Chemical Peels. Patients are free to return to work or school that same day. Strenuous activities and exercise should be put off for the first 24 hours after treatment.
