How to Care for Your Skin after a Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are popular skin rejuvenation treatments that can address a wide range of common skin concerns, including uneven skin tone and texture, acne scars, lines and wrinkles and sun damage.

As their name suggests, most chemical peels cause the outermost layer of skin to peel away, revealing the fresh new layer underneath. This process can take anywhere from a few days to a week, depending on the depth of the peel. During this time, it is important that you take special care of your skin to protect it while it heals and to ensure you get the most out of your treatment.
