If you want to level up your skin care, chemical peels can address and reduce a variety of concerns you have with your facial appearance. These treatments can remove damaged skin and promote healthy growth of tissue for a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. Here are three ways to optimize the results from your chemical peel.
Prep Your Skin for a Chemical Peel
Preparing your skin can help you receive the maximum benefits of a chemical peel. A nightly retinol regimen can help make the surface layer of the skin thinner. This can result in deeper and more evenly distributed results. If you use retinol to prepare your skin prior to a chemical peel, make sure to do it under the guidance of an aesthetic professional. A cosmetic surgeon can recommend the best clinically proven product with the right concentration of retinol.
Protect Your Skin Before and After Chemical Peel Treatment
There are a few things you will need to do before and after a chemical peel treatment to help protect your skin. For at least a week before treatment, avoid tanning and wear SPF sunscreen. You may need to stop using certain skin care products and stop taking specific medications under the guidance of the plastic surgeon. After treatment, continue applying sunscreen when your surgeon recommends and wear protective clothing outdoors.
Schedule a Series of Chemical Peel Treatments
To optimize your results, schedule a series of chemical peel treatments to improve and maintain skin tone and texture. How often you schedule treatments will depend on the type of chemical peel you choose. Light peels may need to be performed approximately every two to five weeks. Medium peels may need to be repeated every three to nine months. If you want something longer lasting without the need for repeat treatments, you may want to consider a deep peel.
