From hydra facials to dermaplaning, there are numerous skin rejuvenation treatments patients can undergo to keep their skin flawless and glowy. However, if you want to eliminate sun damage, sun spots, acne scars, or hyperpigmentation and achieve a fresh, new layer of clear skin all at once, chemical peels are the way to go.
In order to achieve the best results, however, your aftercare post-chemical peel is one of the most important steps of the process. To get that flawless, glowy facial look, it’s important to avoid these three main things:
Exfoliating Your Skin
Having a gentle skincare routine in the first seven days after your chemical peel is essential! While we normally provide or recommend the best kind of facial cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreens to use during your recovery period, it’s important that you don’t rush home, wash your face, and exfoliate with a harsh exfoliant that may have been part of your normal skin routine. Because the chemical peel acts as an exfoliant already, double exfoliating could cause further damage to your skin.
Although you will use sunscreen while in recovery, avoid spending too much time outdoors. If you have to spend a prolonged period of time out in the sun, try to wear a hat, take an umbrella, or stay in a shaded area to avoid exposing your peeling skin to further sun damage and additional scarring.
Picking At Your Skin
As the outermost layer begins to peel off, you may have the urge to pick at or tear off the layer yourself. This is an absolute no! Peeling off your skin by yourself may cause bleeding, scarring, and other damage to your fresh, new layer of skin. Most of the time, excess skin can fall away while rinsing off your face cleanser. Allowing your skin to peel off on its own gently is the best way to achieve damage-free, radiant skin.
