Chemical Peels Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

Your body naturally sheds dead skin cells over time, but that turnover slows as you age.

A chemical peel is a powerful exfoliation technique that should only be performed by a professional with advanced skills and training, as it essentially removes the outermost layer of your skin and reveals the healthy skin cells that lie beneath.

The word “chemical” has numerous negative associations, and many people hear the term “chemical peel” and envision a dangerous and potentially harmful procedure.

In reality, the solutions used in this innovative skincare treatment are carefully formulated to deliver highly effective results without harming your skin.

What skin conditions can chemical peels improve?

Chemical peels can address a number of skin conditions, all without invasive procedures or the risk of serious side effects. These are just some of the issues a chemical peel can fix:

  • Acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles
  • Melasma
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sagging skin

What is it like to get a chemical peel?

Before your peel, the Forever Young team reviews your medical history and checks your skin to determine if the treatment is appropriate. During your appointment, the doctor carefully cleanses your skin before applying the chemical peel formula.

The length of time the peel is left on your skin depends on the type of peel you’re getting and your skin’s condition. Once the peel is complete, your Forever Young provider gently removes the peel and cleans your skin again.

A calming lotion or antibiotic cream may then be applied to soothe and protect your skin.

After the peel, your skin may be red and swollen. As your body heals, you may experience skin crusts or even blisters on some portions of the treated area. Your Forever Young provider will advise you on how to properly care for your skin as the healing process moves forward.

Once healing is complete, the effects of your chemical peel will become apparent. By following your post-treatment instructions and taking good care of your skin, you can increase the lifespan of your results.

How long do chemical peel results last?

Your results will be unique and depend on the condition of your skin before the peel, as well as how closely you follow the instructions provided during your appointment.

There are several things you can do to extend your results:

  • Avoid smoking and sun exposure, as doing so could lead to scarring
  • Use a high-quality sunscreen every day
  • Consult with the Forever Young team to find the best skin care line for your needs
