Chemical Peels Q & A

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a solution that Amanda applies to the skin on your face, hands, or neck in order to exfoliate and peel away one or more layers of skin. When the old skin peels away, your body presents new, smoother skin.

You can use chemical peels to treat:

  • Age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Crow’s feet
  • Scars 
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Sagging skin
  • Hyperpigmentation 

It also smooths rough skin texture.

White Coat Aesthetics uses VI Peel® chemical peels to painlessly improve the appearance of your skin.

How should I prepare for a chemical peel?

Before heading in for a chemical peel, you need to prepare yourself and your skin by:

  • Consistently applying sunscreen for four weeks leading up to the procedure
  • Avoiding facial scrubs, bleaching, and massages for a week beforehand

In addition, for a whole week before your peel, make sure that you neither wax nor use depilatory hair removal products.

What happens during a chemical peel?

To begin your chemical peel, Amanda cleans your face and may protect your body with goggles, gauze, tape, or ointment. She also pulls your hair back and covers it.

Once you’re ready, she applies the peel with gauze, a sponge, cotton balls, or a brush. After a few minutes, she applies a neutralizing solution to stop the work of the peel.

What happens after a chemical peel?

Immediately after the peel, your skin will be red, mildly irritated, and dry, but it won’t be raw or deeply painful. As you receive more peels, your skin adjusts and reacts less negatively. 

When you go home, you should avoid sun exposure for the first few days since your skin will be more sensitive than usual. Your skin will start to peel about three days after your procedure, and will fully heal by the eighth day.

The VI Peel® offers tasteful, subtle results. To achieve a more dramatic change, you may have to schedule multiple peels.
