Various pigmentation scars and spots on the face, hands, neck as well as chest can be diminished by a chemical peel. Before proceeding with the treatment, some clients need to follow a pre-peel skin care plan for 2 to 4 weeks. This pre-plan can improve results and may prevent side effects. On the day of the peel treatment, you will first be prepped for the treatment by cleansing the skin thoroughly. If you will have a deep peel, you will receive anesthesia, which reduces the discomfort during peeling. After you are prepped, your dermatologist will apply the peel quickly and evenly and then will carefully watch your skin to remove the peel at just the right time. After the peel comes off, your skin will be treated as needed. For medium peel treatment, your skin may need cool compresses followed by a lotion or cream to soothe their skin. With a deep peel, the skin is treated one small section at a time and also you will have a wound that requires a surgical dressing.
After the treatment, use the moisturizer as directed to keep your skin moist and supple. In case of skin burns, itches or swells, contact your dermatologist. Do not rub or scratch your skin treated with a chemical peel, as it can cause an infection. Also using a tanning bed or other type of indoor tanning might not heal your skin properly. After your skin heals, apply sunscreen every day to maintain results including:
- Fewer lines and wrinkles
- More even skin color
- Brighter complexion
- Smoother skin
