Preparing for a chemical peel treatment often involves avoiding sun exposure and certain skincare products that might sensitise the skin. This is particularly important if you’re considering a deep chemical peel. Contact us for a customised preparation plan.
It’s generally advised to avoid makeup immediately after a skin peel to allow the skin to heal and prevent potential irritation. This is especially true for deeper chemical peels that may require a longer recovery period.
Chemical peels, particularly those involving strong acids, are often not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding. The safety of undergoing a skin peel treatment during these times has not been fully established, so it’s best to consult a medical professional.
Some treatments can be combined with a chemical peel for enhanced results, but it largely depends on the type of peel and other treatments in question. For example, a superficial peel might be combined with other treatments suitable for all skin types for smoother skin.
The frequency of chemical peel treatments can vary based on your skin type and the issues you’re looking to address. Sun exposure, for instance, may require more frequent peels to combat damage. Always consult a skin professional to establish a tailored treatment plan.
