Dr. Jain may ask that you refrain from taking certain types of medications in the days and weeks leading up to your chemical peel. You may also be asked to apply certain medications to your skin as a means of preparing for your procedure. The depth of your peel will depend on the condition of your skin and your cosmetic goals. Your chemical peel will be performed at our state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery center.
First, your skin will be thoroughly cleaned. Then, a trained medical professional will apply one or more chemicals to targeted areas of your skin. The controlled wound that results from a chemical peel allows new skin to develop. Patients may experience a temporary burning sensation during the procedure. Cool compresses and pain medication can address this temporary discomfort following your procedure.
You will be given special recovery guidelines that are to be followed very closely. Patients should avoid sun exposure following their treatment. Mild swelling and blistering are common side effects that will subside in the days and weeks after undergoing a chemical peel. The degree of these side effects and the amount of time it takes to recover will depend on the strength of the treatment. For example, a deep peel could take two to three weeks of recovery time, while a light peel may only take one to seven days.
