What to expect: Immediately after, there may be mild redness in the area, similar to a mild sunburn, which may last from several hours to 2 days. For most patients, peeling begins 2 days after the peel and lasts 2-7 days, depending on the type of peel. Don’t worry if you don’t peel at all. Sometimes, effective peels on skin in good condition will not go through the peeling process. The skin may only look rosy and have a healthy glow after treatment. It is important to wear sunscreen at all times during daylight hours for at least 2 weeks after. Ultraviolet radiation also comes through the windows and from fluorescent lights, so wear sunscreen even if you are staying inside. Exposure to even small amounts of sunlight can cause brown discolored patches on the skin.
Wash the face gently with your fingertips and a mild cleanser (such as Cetaphil or Dove) twice daily. Apply a mild, thick moisturizing cream at least twice daily. You may apply it more often, if desired. Extremely dry patches can be treated with CeraVe Healing ointment or Aquaphor ointment. Do not pick at or peel the healing skin. This could cause excessive redness or scarring. The skin will slough off when it is ready.
