Is A Body Chemical Peel Right for Me?

Generally, Body Chemical Peels can be used on all skin types. However, if you have a darker skin tone, you have a greater risk of experiencing a darkening of your skin after treatment. This condition is called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. If you have a naturally darker skin tone, you may want to get the advice of your dermatologist about other less aggressive treatments to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.

Chemical peeling may also not be recommended if you:

  • Have a history of abnormal skin scarring.

  • Have extra coloring in your scars.

  • Pregnancy & Lactation  

  • Have skin conditions or take medications that make your skin more sensitive.

  • Can't stay out of the sun for the healing period.

  • Allergies: Phenol

  • Disorders or Diseases: Immune disorders, liver conditions, active cancer treatments including, chemotherapy or radiation in the past 6 months.

  • Skin Condition: Inflamed skin, open wounds, active, cold sores, Accutane® use within past 6 months, keloids or history of keloids, hypertrophic scars, melanoma.

How is A Body Chemical Peel Given?

A Body Chemical Peel can be performed in a Medical Spa as an outpatient procedure. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed with an agent that removes excess oils, while specific body parts will be protected. A chemical solution is then applied to the concerned area of skin. Chemical solutions typically used include glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid or carbolic acid (phenol). The different types of chemicals cause a controlled injury, each penetrating through to a different skin depth, then peeling away to reveal a new layer of skin. The different chemical solutions provide different results. The choice of chemical depends on your goal. 

What is Recovery Like After A Body Chemical Peel?

Recovery from this type of peel may take a week or more and require some downtime.

If you’ve had a body chemical peel:

DAY OF TREATMENT

  • Wear loose clothing to your treatment. Cotton-based is best.

  • For the first 4 hours after peeling, avoid applying any topical products and avoid washing the treated area(s).

AFTER

  • Flaking/Peeling typically begins 5-7 days after the peel is applied. When this begins, remember the following:

  • Skin will feel tight or dry right before it peels.

  • Do not pick, pull, or roll the skin as this could lead to significant irritation and possible hyperpigmentation and scarring.

  • Peeling may look like light flaking, sheet peeling, or maybe barely visible to the naked eye.

  • Flaking/Peeling may last 3-7 days and varies from person to person. If any products in your Patient Aftercare Kit sting or irritate beyond your tolerance, stop and reach out to your practitioner.

RESUMING PREVIOUS ACTIVITIES/ PRODUCTS
