Treatment

Leave On Peel

Chemical Peels are a type of skin-resurfacing procedure. They work by exfoliation of the top layer of skin. Hence, this improves the overall appearance of the skin.

Dermatologists apply chemical solutions to the skin. This solution is left on the skin for a couple of hours. As a result, that new area of the skin exfoliates. In fact, it eventually peels off. Therefore, this exposes fresh skin. This skin is often smoother and healthier.

Chemical peels help to treat a variety of skin issues. For example:

  • wrinkles and fine lines
  • sun damage
  • acne scars
  • hyperpigmentation
  • mild acne scars
  • uneven skin tone

Usually, peels are effective and safe. However, there are certain cases in which, dermatologists won’t recommend peels to you. For instance if you have:

  • Been taking isotretinoin for severe acne in the last six months
  • A darker skin tone.
  • The tendency for keloids.
  • Are prone to or have a history of frequent cold sores

Leave-on peels are usually superficial or medium in nature. They penetrate the outermost layer of skin as well as the middle layer of the skin.  They help remove damaged skin cells. In fact, these peels can improve overall skin appearance. Hence, the skin becomes smoother. Usually, the Yellow peel is the stronger peel which stimulates the dead skin to peel off, to eventually expose the fresh and smooth skin.

How does the procedure work? 

Pre-procedure

A chemical peel is an office-based procedure. This means you can return to your regular activities right after the procedure. Your recovery, however, depends on whether you had a superficial or medium peel.

  • Your doctor will clean your face and cover your eyes with goggles.
  • If you are getting a medium peel, you may have an option of taking a painkiller.

During the procedure

  • Your doctor will apply the chemical solution on the treatment area with a brush, cotton ball, gauze or sponge. .
  • You might feel mild stinging for a few minutes while the chemical solution is on your skin.
  • The peel stays on your skin for about six to eight hours depending on its intensity.

Post-Procedure 

Depending on the type of peel you had, your skin will react differently.

The treated skin will be red, dry and mildly irritated. However, these signs will reduce with time.

You may need to apply an ointment to soothe the area.

Your skin will heal in a week to 15 days depending on the intensity of the peel.

Side effects 

Chemical peels are safe and effective. However, patients may see some temporary side effects such as:

  • Redness
  • Dryness
  • Stinging
  • Burning
  • Slight swelling

Post-Procedure Care

The skin is especially sensitive after a chemical peel.

You need to undertake certain steps to take care of your skin.

  • Don’t wash your face with hot water.
  • Apply to keep your skin hydrated.
  • Don’t use a dry sauna.
  • Avoid exercises: It is important to avoid doing heavy workouts so as to not sweat.
  • Make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen every time you go out. This is because your skin is especially sensitive after the procedure.

Lastly, remember that chemical peels do give effective results, However, they are not permanent. Depending on your skincare and ageing, your skin might change with time. Practise consistent skincare to get the best out of treatment. Although, make sure you don’t overdo it.
