Chemical Peel Toronto

Recovery + Results

Depending on the depth of your peel, you may notice flushed skin, a sunburned look to your skin, or even pain and oozing (specifically in the case of a deep peel, which resurfaces the skin to address more profound skin conditions and necessitates longer recovery). Your provider may suggest applying antibacterial ointments, topical corticosteroids, or soothing products like aloe to make sure you're comfortable as your skin cells slough off.

You'll also need to stay out of the sun and faithfully apply SPF (as long as your provider gives you the all-clear to apply products to your skin) to minimize your risk of sun damage, which is heightened post-peel.

Immediately following your chemical peel, your skin will look and feel noticeably smoother, pores will be refined, and your skin tone will appear more even. Improvements to fine lines, pigmentation irregularities, and blemishes will be realized gradually over the weeks following your treatment, and will improve even further following subsequent treatments. Expect to see a clearer and brighter overall appearance to your complexion.

This varies significantly depending on the depth of the peel. Most patients opt for light peels, which offer minimal downtime. After your chemical peel your, skin may appear slightly flushed, and minor flaking and peeling may occur in some patients, but should subside within a few days. You should be able to return to most day-to-day activities immediately, though we recommend avoiding makeup, shaving, and using any face cleanser for 24 hours post-treatment.

In the week following treatment, you should strictly avoid sun exposure, as well as the use of scented lotions or soaps, exfoliant creams, acne creams or gels, loofah sponges and aggressive scrubbing. If possible, you should also avoid swimming pools and hot tubs, as well as any activities that could cause excessive perspiration.

For those who are being treated with a deep chemical peel, you should consult your provider on the best protocol to follow post-procedure to ensure the safest recovery for optimal results.
