Perfect Derma Peel

The skin is prepped with acetone; then, the peel is applied and washed off after 6 hours. You’ll leave SKN with a care package that includes instructions on how to care for your skin after your peel. Then, the peeling begins in a few days!

Chemical Peels FAQS

How many treatments are necessary?2021-06-11T14:12:14-05:00

After one treatment overall skin tone and complexion will appear smooth, glowing, and fresh. Depending on skin conditions, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results.

A series of 3-4 treatments applied once every 4 weeks will allow for optimal results for more skin conditions such as melasma and active acne.

What is the downtime? Will my face actually peel?2021-06-11T14:18:26-05:00

Yes! You will begin peeling around 48 hours after peel application. This will continue until the 7th or 8th day from the date of your appointment.

What will a chemical peel do for my skin?2021-06-11T14:16:16-05:00

Chemical peels can do a lot for your skin!

  • Reduce or eliminate hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and Melasma
  • Control acne and reduce acne scars
  • Help erase fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce enlarged pores
  • Build collagen and elastin for a healthier, firmer complexion
  • Improve the overall tone, texture, and clarity of the skin

 

Does it hurt?2021-06-11T14:20:20-05:00

Not at all, although you will feel a slight tingling sensation. With a fan in hand, it’s over in minutes and the tingling subsides. The peel solution has an ingredient in it that numbs the skin with each pass.

Can I exfoliate the dead skin off?2021-06-11T15:00:45-05:00

No! You can trim the skin, but you cannot remove it yourself. If you do, you will likely cause discoloration.

Can I wear makeup after?2021-06-11T14:56:26-05:00

Because you will leave the office with the peel still on your skin, you should not wear makeup for at least 6 hours post peel. The peel self neutralizes, but after oxidizing, it has an orangey tint. You should make plans to go home immediately after to avoid sunlight (and crazy looks). Once you have removed the peel it is easy to wear makeup for about 48 hours until the peeling begins!

How often should I get a chemical peel?2021-06-11T15:03:28-05:00

It really depends on what we are targeting and what your end goal is. Your provider will work with you to determine the right peel for you and a treatment plan. We might suggest a series of a few chemical peels in a row or we might also suggest that you put it in rotation with another treatment like SkinPen.
