A chemical peel can be an effective way to revive and re-energize the skin. When fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation appear, the good news is that in many cases, it is a surface level concern that may be helped with a peel. Given the fact that a chemical peel is an investment of your time, it only makes sense that you would want the results to last for as long as possible. So, if you are attempting to extend the results of your chemical peel, here is what you need to know:
Know What Conditions Can Be Treated
The first step to ensuring that you extend the results of your chemical peel for as long as possible is ensuring that your condition is treatable. The good news is that chemical peels are excellent at addressing acne scars, age spots, crow’s feet, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, sagging, aging skin and more.
Follow Proper After-Care
Given the fact that each chemical peel is different, the at-home skin regimen will differ as well. Generally speaking, however, your at-home skin regimen may include a topical cream or antiviral medication. Rest assured, your specific after-care routine will be thoroughly explained during your consultation.
Protect Your Skin
One of the most common recommendations we give to patients after a chemical peel is to avoid sun exposure. However, it is also essential to avoid pulling or picking at the peeling skin. Moisturizer and SPF are key to keeping your skin happy and hydrated during the healing process. Should you have any questions in the days following your procedure, we are here to help.
