What Does Skin Look Like After A Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels have been around for decades and continue to be a widespread treatment among estheticians. They promote soft, smooth, and healthy skin by exfoliating the top layer. However, the treatment has a “peeling” process, leaving the face looking red and flaky for a week before the results. Below is a brief overview of your skin’s appearance after a chemical peel.
- 1st & 2nd Day: During the first two days following a chemical peel, your skin may take on a yellow hue and feel raw.
- 3rd & 4th Day: Day three and four after the treatment is when the skin will begin to peel and flake. This is often when the worst flaking, itching, and irritation occur.
- 1 Week: After a whole week, your skin will have gone through the worst peeling and should have less sensitivity.
During the first week or more following a chemical peel, you should use all recommended products suggested or provided by your esthetician. At Allure Esthetic, the estheticians understand the importance of skincare and provide the best chemical peels for every patient.
