At what age should I start chemical peel treatment?
You will see a benefit from having this treatment in your twenties onwards. Those in the 20s – early 30s typically need fewer treatments in a year (every 6-12 months). For people in their late 30s-40s onward, you will usually benefit from more regular sessions (every 3-6 months).
Does it hurt to have a chemical peel?
Glycolic skin peels work on the superficial epidermal skin layer. Because of this, they are a very gentle and safe way to achieve the look you want, without any pain or downtime. When the chemical peel is applied, you will feel a mild tingling sensation as it begins to work its magic. This is left on for between 1-5 minutes depending on which session you are on. The peeling agent is then softly inactivated with a buffering cream to safely restore your skins natural pH.
Will I be able to go back to work after my treatment?
The downtime with Glycolic chemical peels is minimal to non-existent depending on skin type. Patients are usually able to fit in treatments during their lunch break and going back to work afterwards. As the skin peel targets only the superficial layer, it safely resurfaces the uppermost layer of the skin without causing sheets of skin to shed off, making it an almost invisible peel.
