How is a Chemical peel performed?
The need for sedation depends upon the depth of the peel.
After the skin has been primed through skin care or microdermabrasion, it will be scrubbed and a mild toner used to remove the natural surface oils.
Layers of the acid are gently and expertly applied to your skin. Ahe timer is set and the physician or skincare specialist neutralizes the acid and removes the product. The skin is then cleaned and moisturizered.
Sometimes a membrane is applied to help with comfort and healing - but these are usually reserved for more intensive peels (phenol, obagi Blue, laser, etc.)
