Redness, inflammation mild to moderate peeling is a usual for 1 – 5 days post peel. The stronger the peel, the more intense the redness, peeling and downtime.
How many treatments will I need?
A skincare consultation is essential prior to a chemical peel to determine the most suitable type of peel and the recommended frequency of treatment.
