Chemical peel is a great treatment to enhance the appearance of your skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, and it peels off the outer layer of the skin, and the new tender skin is less wrinkled as compared to the old skin. The best place to get the chemical peel treatment is neck, hand and face. They help in reducing the fine lines under the eyes, and it also treats the wrinkles that are caused because of sun damage. Chemical peels also help in reducing scars and certain types of acne.
You must tell your dermatologist about the scarring and acne history before the treatment. There are certain medications you need to take before the treatment in order to prepare your skin for it. After you get the chemical peel treatment done, the skin becomes sensitive to sun, and you are advised to apply sun block daily. The sunblock should be above SPF 30. Since the outer layer of the skin is peeled off, bandages are applied on the skin for a while before you can take it off. However, that depends on the skin condition and the type of peel you get done. In case of mild peels, you can get back to your original lifestyle soon after the treatment. In some cases it might take longer.
At ISAAC, we have a consultation session before starting the treatment and examine your skin properly. We understand your requirement and then decide on the intensity of the peel. The peel intensity is a major factor that determines the recovery time.
