Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are cosmetic procedures that involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin, causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. This process helps improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and promote a smoother, more radiant complexion.

Commonly asked questions

What issues can chemical peels address?

Chemical peels are versatile and can address various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne scars, sun damage, and texture irregularities. They promote skin renewal and rejuvenation.

Are chemical peels suitable for all skin types?

Chemical peels come in different strengths, making them suitable for a range of skin types. However, individuals with more melanin in their skin tone may require extra caution to avoid pigmentation changes, and it's essential to consult with a qualified skincare professional for personalized recommendations.

What is the typical recovery timeline after a chemical peel?

The recovery time varies depending on the depth of the peel. Superficial peels may result in minimal downtime with mild redness, while deeper peels may involve a few days of peeling and redness. Sun protection and adherence to post-peel care instructions are crucial during the recovery period.

How many sessions are typically needed to produce results?

The number of sessions required depends on the specific skin concerns and the type of peel used. Some individuals may see improvements after a single session, while others may benefit from a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart for optimal results. A skincare professional can provide personalized recommendations based on individual needs.

What to expect during recovery

Chemical peel recovery is a significant process, and you can expect symptoms to persist for a few weeks before full resolution. During this period, common side effects may include temporary redness, swelling, and discomfort in the treated area. It is advised to prioritize rest and avoid strenuous exercise or physical activity during the recovery phase. While most individuals can resume their regular daily activities within a short amount of time, the ultimate results may require additional time to fully manifest. Dr. Pellegrino and his committed team will provide guidance with a tailored recovery plan, offering support and valuable insights during your post-peel follow-up appointments.
