Level 1: Progressive / Superficial Chemical Peels
Skin may be pink or red for the first 1-2 days and may feel slightly tender to touch. Skin may feel more sensitive for the first 1-3 days. These level one peels result in a light, sun-burned type skin flaking to no significant visible peeling.
Level 2: Mid-Depth Chemical Peels
Skin may be pink or red for the first 1-2 days and may feel tender to touch. Skin may feel more sensitive for the first 1-3 days. These level one peels result in some sheet-like/segment peeling and full face flaking.
Level 3: Deep Chemical Peels
Deep peels are designed to remove epidermal layers of the skin. These peels will help reduce active acne lesions and scarring, decrease fine lines, and wrinkles, lighten hyper-pigmented areas (dark patches) and improve the overall health and appearance of sun-damaged, aging, and acne skins.
Skin may have a white, frosted appearance, may feel smooth, tight and sensitive immediately following treatment. Skin may experience color changes from very red, red, pink, to tan/darker areas until peeling occurs. Skin may be tender to touch or more sensitive for the first 3-4 days. Skin will begin peeling 3-4 days after the procedure and may continue for the next 7-10 days.
The Perfect Derma Peel™
What will I look like during The Perfect Derma Peel treatment process and post peel?
Immediately after the peel has been applied the skin will either appear red, like a sunburn, or darker. On day three, peeling will begin. By day six or seven the peeling process should be complete, however, some people peel twice.
Will my daily routine be affected after the treatment?
Normal activities may be resumed immediately post peel. We recommend avoiding heavy exercise and excessive sweating during the peeling process.
Can make up be worn post peel?
The day the peel is applied the patient should not put any make up or other products on his or her face post peel. Make may be worn on day 2 of the peeling process.
Will my skin be sensitive post peel?
Skin will be more sensitive during the peeling process until the PH level is replenished, which can take a couple of weeks at most.
Is sun exposure permitted post peel?
Sun exposure should be limited if not avoided before and during the peel process to avoid UV damage since the skin is sensitized after a chemical peel. Sunscreen is a must!
