Is a chemical peel good for the skin?

Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, neck, and other body areas. They are used to improve the appearance and or feel of the skin. During this procedure, a chemical solution is applied to the area being treated, which causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Once this happens, the new skin underneath is often smoother, appears less wrinkled, and may have less damage.

Chemical peels are a gentle and effective treatment that brightens and tightens your skin, leaving your skin feeling and looking radiant and glowing. Here at Sparkle, our chemical peels gently and safely exfoliate your skin and offer excellent results with less downtime than other chemical peels that may be more irritating on the skin.

Pre-Treatment

  • Do not use any Retinol or Retin-A topical medication for at least 48 hours.
  • Inform your skincare specialist about any medications you are taking, such as Accutane or other medications that may increase your skin’s sensitivity.
  • Take an antiviral medication if you have any history of fever blisters or cold sores to prevent a breakout from happening around the mouth.
  • Stop waxing, epilating, or using depilatory hair removal products the week before your peel. It would be best if you also avoided hair bleaching.
  • Stop using facial scrubs and harsh exfoliants the week before your peel.

What to Expect?

  • Before the actual peel, your skincare specialist will clean your skin to remove any makeup, sunscreen and oil. If there is oil on your skin, it may act as a barrier and prevents the acid from penetrating the skin.
  • We will apply an ointment to the skin around areas like the eyes, nose and mouth, where you don’t want the peel to go. Then comes the acid.
  • The length of time the chemical peel stays on the face depends on the peel’s strength and type. If it’s mild, it will neutralize itself in time, and then the client can wash it off 24-48 hours after.
  • During the initial 24-48 hours, the chemicals cause a reaction with the skin and dissolve the dead skin’s outer layers. This helps even the skin tone and promotes the building of collagen, which can last for up to several weeks post-treatment.

How long does a chemical peel last?

  • Peeling usually lasts 3-5 days, depending on the actual peel treatment.
  • Use of gentle cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen are essential, enhancing the healing process and results.
  • Regular activity may be resumed after the peel; however, strenuous exercise and heavy sweating should be avoided for 2-3 days.

How often should I get a chemical peel?

  • It is generally advised to get a chemical peel every four to six weeks.
  • If you suffer from acne, there are some peels that you can do every two weeks until you find the expected results.

Can you see results after 1 peel?

  • You will notice a visible improvement in your skin after one peel, but the best results are obtained with multiple treatments over time. Just as it takes time for skin damage to accumulate, it also takes time to reverse it.

In Summary, Chemical peels are…

  • Effective, predictable, and controlled micro-exfoliation
  • Safe, non-invasive, and self-neutralizing
  • Ideal for patients seeking little to no downtime
  • Can be performed as a quick 15-minute stand-alone peel
  • Ideal for a wide range of mild to moderate skin conditions
  • A great pre-treatment prep for your skin before any laser treatment

Possible Side Effects

Peeling will generally start 48-72 hours after your treatment and can last 3-14 days. It is imperative not to pick off peeling skin; peeling is minimal and easily controlled with moisturizer or a hydrating product. Premature peeling of the skin will result in dry, cracked, raw skin that may develop into hyperpigmentation.
