What Happens During the Chemical Peel Procedure?
There are several types of chemical peels available and, during your initial consultation, you can learn the pros and cons of each variety. Dr. Ort can offer advice concerning the best type of chemical peel for your skin and the conditions that you want to improve. Your chemical peel can also range from topical to deep, depending on the concerns you want to address and how transformative you want your results to be. Deeper chemical peels come with longer downtime, and Dr. Ort can recommend the best options accordingly.
It’s important to come to your appointment without any makeup or skincare products with active ingredients. Depending on the depth of your peel, you may require a topical anesthetic that can be applied before your chemical peel. Once you’re comfortable and prepared, the chemical solution is applied. It will stay on the skin while you relax for a set amount of time, and then will be cleansed off. Your skin will then be neutralized and pampered before you can return home.
