A chemical peel is a powerful procedure that can peel away years of damaged skin, leaving you with a beautiful, more youthful-looking complexion. But with a chemical peel can come a recovery period. There are several types of chemical peels, ranging from light to medium peels for patients safety.
Since chemical peels are stronger than typical spa facials, patients will need 4-7 days to recover after their treatment. During this time, significant flaking of the skin will start to occur. This is your body shedding the older skin layers to reveal fresh, beautiful skin underneath. Many patients choose to have a chemical peel performed during the winter season. This can often make it easier to avoid direct sunlight (which you should avoid while the skin is healing). Many people take a few days off work to heal – which can be easier to do around the holidays.
Belle Vie offers various personalized chemical peels, but the 2 most popular are:
- Vitalize Peel: This would be an ideal peel for you if you are looking to lessen the signs of aging, improve skin texture, minimize complexion concerns, and help reverse signs of sun damage.
- VI Peel: This peel is best for patients who are concerned about the appearance of acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. Another benefit of this peel is that delivers great results with minimum downtime.
Belle Vie founder Janell Ocampo has a few special tricks for recovering from a chemical peel to help the process: TNS Recovery Serum and TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream both soothe and help the skin recover quicker. These topical treatments rebuild collagen and elastin to reduce the look of signs of aging. The patented blend of growth factors and peptides repairs damaged cells to enhance the tone and texture of skin.
