Cosmetic Post Treatment Care
Initially following a chemical peel, skin can appear red, dry and irritated and will usually peel. Some swelling may also occur around the eyes. These are all completely normal side effects. Whatever you do don’t pick at flaking skin or exfoliate the treated areas, as this may cause scarring and even more redness in the new layers of skin. With all skin rejuvenating treatments you’ll want to ease your skin through any initial skin irritation:
Go easy on your skin:If you typically use an abrasive wash cloth, opt for something softer until your skin settles down.
Soothe your skin:While your skin is healing, chemical peels can leave your skin quite dry and vulnerable to cracking and scarring. To rehydrate your skin, apply gentle moisturiser throughout the day, as required.
Slip, slop, slap!Chemical peels expose immature skin cells to UV harmful UV rays if left unprotected. To limit your exposure to UV rays, apply a low irritant, high SPF sunscreen across your face and neck daily.
