As with any cosmetic treatment, properly preparing for your procedure is important for setting successful expectations and obtaining optimum results. A chemical peel is no different. But how, exactly, do you prepare for this beneficial cosmetic procedure?
By following these useful tips, you can get your skin ready for your upcoming chemical peel treatment:
- Physical Exam and Consultation: During your initial consultation with our clinical staff and experienced board-certified plastic surgeons, we will review your medical history and discuss your expectations and goals. This is an important step in the process and can set the tone for a successful outcome.
- Follow Instructions: Once your appointment is set, our staff will give you specific instructions regarding preparation for your unique treatment. Be sure to follow these as recommended for your safety and to ensure beautiful results.
- Avoid Unprotected Sun Exposure: Protecting your skin is the key to getting the results you want. Because a chemical peel exfoliates your skin to stimulate fresh skin cell growth, protecting it from even harsh UV rays can help make your recovery easier and your results longer lasting.
- Avoid Other Cosmetic Treatments: For about a week before and after your chemical peel, be sure to avoid other certain cosmetic treatments, as they can be harsh on your skin as well. Ultimately, when you expose your skin to further treatment, your recovery will be longer and your results may be altered.
The above is not an exhaustive list. Because we have various chemical peel treatments, our clinical staff will give you personalized instructions for your unique procedure. To determine if a chemical peel is right for you, we will meet with you in person to discuss your cosmetic goals and needs. From there, we will create a personalized treatment plan to ensure you get the results you want to achieve.
