How Long Will The Effects Of The SkinMedica Chemical Peel Last?

Aging of the skin is a chronic natural phenomenon. A single peel can reduce some of the signs of aging, but once the skin has healed from the peel, the aging process starts again. Therefore, a daily program of specifically designed products that reduce the signs of again, as well as a series of peels are necessary to maintain long-term improvement.


How Long Do I Have To Wait After My SkinMedica Chemical Peel Before I Can Go In The Sun?

New skin is more susceptible to sunburn, therefore extra precautions should be taken to avoid sun exposure following the peel. Use of a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is recommended. We recommend limiting sun exposure for at least one week after the chemical peel is performed.

The degree of peeling may vary depending on your skin type and skin condition at the time of the peel. Peeling can range from mild flaking to peeling in sheets.

The outcome of the peel is not determined by the amount of peeling, but by the results, the peel produces including improvement of overall skin condition, smoothness of skin texture, and diminishment of fine lines and wrinkles.

Over the counter acne remedies that are drying to the skin should also be discontinued until the peel process is complete or sensitivity resolves.
