This is done to create a controlled wound to allow new skin to take its place.
The patient might feel a burning sensation while the procedure is being performed. This might last for 5 to 10 minutes, which will be followed by a stinging sensation. This stinging can be eased by putting cool compresses on the skin. If it is a deeper chemical peel, the doctor might recommend pain medication both during and after the procedure.
In some cases, the patients might experience a sunburn-like reaction after a chemical peel Treatment procedure. This usually depends on the type of chemical peel used.
The procedure usually leaves behind redness followed by scaling that might last for 3-7 days. In cases of mild chemical peels, the procedure needs to be repeated at 1 to 4 week intervals till the right look is attained. In the case of medium-depth chemical peels, the procedure needs to be repeated in 6-12 months, if necessary.
