Chemical peels or mechanical exfoliators are agents that resurface and exfoliates the skin by inducing a controlled wound and thus removing superficial layers of the skin which promote the growth of a new healthy skin layer and improve skin problems like hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture and skin impurities.
The face is usually cleaned and then the chemical peel is applied, which typically remains on the skin for 3 to 5 minutes. Most patients feel a mild stinging or burning which is temporary and usually subsides after a few minutes. Some peels are designed to self neutralize and may remain on your skin for 4-6 hours.
Recovery times after the peel based on the type and strength of the peel used. Immediately after the peel, your skin will feel tight and may be red. Any visible peeling after 24 hours will be light and flaky and easily controlled with moisturizer. Peeling usually lasts 3-5 days, depending on the actual peel Treatment. Use of gentle cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen is important, as it will enhance the healing process and results. Normal activity may be resumed after the peel. Sun exposure should be avoided while skin is peeling; exposure of treated skin to a lot of heat should also be avoided as it may induce swelling, redness and for deeper peels blisters under the skin. Peeling skin should be allowed to slough off naturally; picking or peeling of flaking skin is prohibited, as it may lead to scarring. Surgical procedures should wait until skin sensitivity has completely resolved before receiving a peel.
