Our skin layers have a lot of problems like acne, acne scars, wrinkles, age spots or even sun damage. While most of us wonder about ways to treat them, we have already found a popular solution to address them all. 

These facial issues can be easily resolved using the chemical peel treatments. These peels can contain one or a variety of acids and these are used depending on your specific skin requirements. 

Under this treatment, a chemical peel is applied on your face, which will go to various depths of your skin to give you the desired results. 

However, if you are new to the world of chemical peels and wondering what to expect from it, here’s the blog to help you out: 

The day of your chemical peel

All chemical peel treatments will be conducted at the clinic itself. If you are opting for a light or a medium peel, the treatment can start right away. If the peel is going to be deep, you will be applied with a mild sedative to help you stay comfortable throughout. 

An aesthetician will use a brush or cotton applicator to apply the chemical solution directly on the skin surface. As it starts to settle down on the surface, it will start appearing whitish or greyish. 

Some people might also feel stingy due to the penetration of acids into the skin. The sensation will be stronger if the chemicals are stronger. If you use the medium peel, you will be given a handheld fan to cool the skin and ease the discomfort. The acid will be neutralised from the skin after the treatment is over. 

After a few days of the peel

Your face will turn red or tender following the treatment. It can also turn swollen. You will be given certain care instructions to follow depending on the peel that you have opted for. But in all cases, you should prevent yourself from scratching, picking or rubbing your skin.

It might get worse

During the first few days, you might notice some of the following effects:

  • Discolouration
  • Flakiness
  • Breakouts
  • Dryness

These are the characteristic effects after the treatment. Do not get worried about them. With your skin layering off, you will see your age spots, signs of sun damage, wrinkles and other signs of aging disappearing.
