How to Prepare Your Skin Before a Chemical Peel?

If you are an ardent follower of anti-aging regimes and recent trends associated with them then you must have heard about the chemical peels. Chemical peels can make your skin look younger, refined and smoother. Being one of the easiest ways to get that glow, peels can benefit you in a number of ways. Here are some of the benefits of undergoing the chemical peel treatment.

  • It improves your overall skin. You will see a positive difference in your skin’s tone, texture and colour.
  • It lets you get over your skin discolouration issues caused by the sun.
  • Chemical peels breathe a new life into your skin, making it more hydrated.
  • It stimulates collagen production, which will lead to healthier and plumper skin. 
  • Overcomes skin imperfections and superficial scars all at once.
  • After the chemical peel treatment, your in-house skincare products will start to give you more and better results as they will penetrate deeper into the skin.

How to prepare for a chemical peel?

There are certain things you can do to have better results after the treatment:

  • Choose the correct peel for your skin type. Book an appointment with specialist consultants who can help you through this. They will suggest peels based on your skincare habits, skin type and other medical information.
  • Don’t forget to discuss your medical history with the consultants. They must know about all the medications that you are taking. This will help them formulate the right treatment approach.  
  • Gather all the necessary information about the post-treatment care. This is important to be mentally prepared for the upcoming things. It will completely depend on the chemical peel you are opting for. You might need to avoid sunlight or might require to sleep on your back. They might also list certain creams to use to prevent infections.
  • Do not exfoliate your skin from your end. The peel will be exfoliating way deeper and you also need to watch out for the ingredients in the products that you are currently using.
  • Do not apply make-up before the peel. Take a break and let your skin detox.
  • Try avoiding the sun as much as possible. It is better to use sunblock or wide-brimmed sunscreen lotions before you opt for the treatment.
