There are many factors that can make your skin look older than it is. Pollution, stress, smoking, and hormones are just a few things that can affect our skin. And of course, the passage of time can cause a myriad of skin problems.

How Chemical Peels Work

A chemical peel is a topical treatment that harnesses the natural, biological process that is already working within your body. Different types of chemical peels achieve different results, but they each work by applying chemicals to the skin, which remove damaged layers to reveal new, healthy skin.

What are Chemical Peel Treatments Like?

When you arrive for your chemical peel treatment, your skin will be thoroughly cleaned in order to remove any barriers between the chemicals and your skin, such as makeup or moisturizer. This also helps to dry your skin out as much as possible so that the chemicals penetrate the skin more effectively.

After a small amount of gel is applied to certain areas of the face, the chemicals will be administered. The chemicals include a mild acid (typically these are fruit acids and tartaric acid).

We always make sure to keep your comfort in mind and make sure we’re not going too deep. The chemicals will stay on as long as required for the type of chemical peel that you’re having done.

What Happens to the Skin During a Chemical Peel?

During the process, the chemicals trigger a reaction in the skin and melt away the outer layers of dead skin. This will even out the skin tone and begin the process of creating new collagen.

When the peel begins to dry, you may feel a burning or tingling sensation, indicating that the chemical peel is working. Its acidic chemicals are doing their job, causing a very small injury to the skin that allows it to make the new collagen, to regenerate itself, and create brand-new, untouched skin.

Downtime and What to Expect

Patients can expect their skin to begin peeling 3-5 days after their Frisco chemical peel treatment, not immediately afterwards. Once the peeling begins, sunscreen should be applied around every three hours in order to control the peeling and prevent hyperpigmentation. Patients can also use a gentle cleanser and a hydrating gel with hyaluronic acid to help soothe the skin. 

Hot water (baths, hot tubs, saunas, hot showers) are to be avoided for two weeks after treatment. If your skin heats up too much, it can result in inflammation, which can create post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

We advise staying out of the sun for at least one week, and when you do go into the sun, be sure to wear a good SPF. You’ll need to wear sunscreen for two months following your treatment, as your skin will be thinner and therefore much more vulnerable to damage from UV rays.
