Everything You Need to Know About Chemical Peels.

Chemical peel treatments are no longer a rarity, and their popularity continues to surge. Why, you ask? Perhaps it’s because brighter, smoother skin is achievable after just one session. Maybe it’s the convenience of fitting a treatment into your lunch break without breaking the bank. It could also be the dramatic improvement in various skin conditions after a series of peels. Or perhaps it’s the fact that these treatments can be tailored to your specific skin needs. Sounds appealing, doesn’t it? We understand that terms like ‘acid’, ‘peel’, and ‘chemical’ can sound intimidating, especially if you recall that infamous episode of Sex and the City where Samantha’s impromptu peel left her looking rather alarming. However, we’re here to assure you that chemical peels can be gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types, with options that require no downtime, and the results (hello, glowing skin) are absolutely worth it.

Here, we’ll delve into the ins and outs of chemical peels, along with some of our top tips.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel involves applying a solution during an in-clinic treatment to remove dead skin cells. This effective exfoliation prompts the skin to increase its production of new skin, replacing old, damaged cells with healthy new ones. Our skin experts favour chemical peels for their efficacy and speed – treatments can take as little as 25 minutes, depending on the complexity. In the days following some peels, your skin might feel dry, and you could notice some flaking as the dead skin sheds (which can be quite satisfying). This process happens at the cellular level, revealing smoother, younger, and brighter skin beneath the top layer. After approximately seven days, the dead skin will have sloughed off, any redness will have subsided, and your skin will be radiant.

What Are the Results Like?

Chemical peels offer a minimally invasive method to dramatically enhance skin appearance, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. They also improve discolouration, uneven skin tone, and sun damage, as the peel action removes damaged, dead skin. If you’re seeking smoother skin, a chemical peel might be your holy grail, targeting rough, dry patches, scars, and general lumps and bumps, resulting in younger and plumper-looking skin after about seven days.

Do Chemical Peels Hurt?

Despite the somewhat intimidating name, AlumierMD peels do not cause pain. At most, you might experience a mild tingling sensation. AlumierMD skin professionals regularly recommend chemical peels, even for sensitive skin, as they provide a quick and effective route to glowing results.

Can Anyone Have a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels sound amazing, don’t they? The good news is that they are suitable for most skin types. To get started, you’ll need to connect with a nearby clinic. There, you can enjoy a personalised skincare plan that includes chemical peel treatments.

How Can I Prepare for My Chemical Peel?

Your skin professional will provide detailed, personalised information tailored to you and the specific chemical peel chosen. Nevertheless, certain lifestyle factors can enhance the outcomes of all in-clinic procedures. At AlumierMD, we’ve been focusing on the pillars of wellness, providing information through our blog series on lifestyle factors that contribute to healthier skin. For instance, sleep is crucial to overall health, and being well-rested before (and after) your chemical peel aids recovery. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water is another excellent tip, ensuring your body works efficiently and heals well. We have more detailed information on hydration in our blog.

How Can I Care for My Skin After My Chemical Peel?

Post-treatment, your skin professional will give you an aftercare kit of skincare miniatures, including SensiCalm, a creamy cleanser for gently cleansing post-peel skin; Recovery Balm, perfect for soothing and hydrating; and Sheer Hydration SPF 40, a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays after treatment. It might be tempting to pick at flaky skin, but it’s best to let it fall away naturally to avoid soreness or scarring. Avoid at-home exfoliants like scrubs or acids for at least five days post-peel to let the new skin settle. Daily SPF is crucial, as skin will be more sensitive to the sun after a peel.
