What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a type of treatment that exfoliates the skin by using a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of damaged skin. The solution is typically left on the skin for a few minutes and then rinsed off. Depending on the strength of the solution, some light peels may take only a couple of minutes, while deeper peels can take up to 10-15 minutes. During treatment, you may feel a warm sensation that generally subsides within a few minutes.

Benefits of Chemical Peels

What to expect during this treatment

The consultation:

The first step is a comprehensive, one-on-one consultation, where Dr Injibar would take an extensive review of your current skin issues and inform you of the protocol that will be followed and how to properly manage it in terms of at-home care.

What to avoid before and after treatment:

As an example, when a patient is prone to cold sores, Dr Injibar would supply them with medication that thwarts further outbreaks and prevents the infection from spreading over their newly peeled skin. For the best results, It is recommended that patients stop using any skincare products containing retinol, tretinoin and glycolic acid one week prior to their chemical peel. During the consultation, post-treatment downtime will be discussed. Patients should not be in direct sun for 1-2 weeks after treatment.

What is treatment downtime?

Generally speaking, light peels will require 3-5 days of downtime followed by 5-7 days for medium-depth treatments and up to 10 days when undergoing a deep peel.

Treatment day:

On the day of your chemical peel,  Dr Injibar will begin by cleansing your skin before applying a solution that may cause some warmth and tingling. To reduce discomfort we can apply a cold compress which should help alleviate any of these sensations. For extra precaution on your way home after treatment, we would recommend you wear a hat or scarf as protection against environmental elements.

Will you see results after the first chemical peel?

The results of the treatment may take between 1 week to 3 months to show. This depends on the type of peel used and the length of downtime. Patients may need to come back for additional treatments every 6 months in some cases., But I will provide them with a personalized at-home skincare regimen to prolong the effects of their chemical peel results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much downtime will I need?2020-01-24T18:09:43+00:00

The amount of downtime will depend on the strength of the peel. At Dermasurge, we recommend embracing longer periods of downtime in favour of more effective, long-lasting treatments where necessary. During the consultation process, Dr Hiba will be able to fully advise patients on how much downtime to expect but is usually between 3-7 days. Patients should avoid sunlight as the skin heals.

Are they any side effects?2020-01-24T18:11:38+00:00

Common side effects of chemical peels include flaking, peeling, redness, tenderness or stinging in the treatment area. This should subside as the skin begins to heal.

How soon will I see results, and how long will they last?2020-01-24T18:14:11+00:00

This will depend on the type of peel used during treatment, and results may take between one week and 3 months to become fully evident, depending on the length of downtime. Patients may need repeat or top-up treatment every six months. Dr Hiba will recommend an at-home skincare regime to help prolong the effects of chemical peel treatments.

Patient Reviews

“I am so glad I came to Dr. Hiba, I didn’t know what I wanted, however, my skin felt tired, old, and grey. She immediately put my mind at ease. She helped me with a skincare regime that worked! My treatment quick, painless – and results fantastic. Very happy, can’t recommend her enough.”

Peter, Surrey

“As my skin is aging, Dr. Hiba is helping me improve and maintain the texture of my skin in ways that are very natural looking and age appropriate. Dr. Hiba is so professional and took the time to explain the process and ensured she wouldn’t freeze my face. Dr. Hiba is very easy to communicate with (as is her staff) and I am genuinely looking forward to having my procedures done.”
