What to Expect After Your Perfect Peel

Not all chemical peels are created equal.

The Perfect Peel, for instance, can help you achieve some pretty powerful results, but the peeling process can take time. Some may also find it to be more intense than what you might expect based on other peels you’ve had before.

SkinSpirit practitioner Pinky Elliott, based out of our Seattle – University Village location, recently had her first Perfect Peel and found it to be unique from peels of the past. Now that she’s seen her results, she wanted to share a little bit about her experience with you, so that you have an idea of what to expect when you walk out of the treatment room.

Pinky’s Perfect Peel

pinky-perfect-peel-before-afterIn Pinky’s own words: “the process of peeling sucks, BUT it’s worth it!”

While typically Pinky, RN, BSN, CANS, advises her clients to expect three days of intense peeling, she experienced five days of peeling after her own Perfect Peel, followed by a second round of flaking. In total, she recommends giving yourself seven days to peel before your newly brightened skin becomes visible.

But don’t be scared by the extra downtime! While this was longer than Pinky had expected, she still felt the outcome was more than worth the wait.

“The Perfect Peel is safe for all skin types and great for pigment issues, texture and wrinkles,” she says. “It’s definitely worth planning for the social downtime, and we [SkinSpirit] will help with the appropriate aftercare.”

She also recommends planning your procedure for the fall and winter months – so we’ll see you then at SkinSpirit!

So What Should You Do During the Peeling Process?

After your chemical peel, your skin will be more sensitive than usual, and you will need to make adjustments in your home care routine accordingly. We recommend sticking to sunscreen (a physical SPF 30+) and just enough moisturizer to be comfortable throughout the peeling process – using little-to-no moisturizer whatsoever in the first couple of days after treatment.

As always, your SkinSprit practitioner will provide you with specific recommendations for aftercare following your chemical peel treatment.
