After the peel soothing products are applied, sunblock is essential. Peels are not painful. They vary from a warm sensation to a prickly sensation. Peeling is not always obvious but peeling in sheets of skin is not ideal for most patients. We commonly treat the face, neck, back, decolletage and hands. We can treat any area of skin that has acne, scarring, pigmentation or ageing changes.
Before having a chemical peel, you will have an assessment of your skin by your doctor or skin therapist. If necessary, you will be started on topical skin care which will facilitate the best results and decrease the risk of unwanted side effects.
