Aftercare for Chemical Peel Treatments
Whilst we use the best quality chemical solutions in our peels, it is likely you will still experience some mild side-effects. This includes a warm sensation in your face, and a pink-tone in your face. In some cases, you may also experience some mild swelling.
These side effects will gradually subside over the next 24-72 hours. To assist with your comfort following treatment we recommend:
- Applying a cold press for no longer than 10 minutes following treatment. This will help to reduce the heat in the skin.
- Apply a cooling gel to keep your skin feeling cool.
- Avoid using makeup for the next 48 hours following treatment. If you do use makeup, then use a light mineral-based foundation.
It is common for your skin to feel a little tight and start to flake following your chemical peel treatment. Depending on your skin type, you may also experience acne breakouts. This is completely normal, and is a good sign that your skin is rejuvenating and purging the impurities in your skin.
To assist you in receiving as little side effects as possible we recommend you follow some post-treatment care:
- Do not have hot showers. Keep to cool to luke-warm water temperatures.
- Do not pick or scratch your skin. This may lead to infections and scarring.
- Try to sleep on your back and use an extra pillow to raise your head. This will help with any swelling and rubbing of the skin.
- Avoid direct sunlight, and use an SPF 50+ sunscreen on your face.

Can I just do a chemical peel at home myself?
For best results, chemical peels should be assessed and administered by a professional. At-home chemical peels can be dangerous and can damage the skin if applied incorrectly. It is best to let a professional assess the strength of peel needed and closely supervise the application and skin reaction to the peel.
