How to Prepare for a Chemical Peel

Before scheduling your chemical peel, Dr. Guarino will meet with you to discuss your goals and treatment options to determine which peel is right for you. If you’re a good candidate, make sure you avoid other chemical treatments prior to your peel.

The day of the appointment, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to ensure a clean slate and reduce risk of infection. Of course, all procedures carry risks, and you’ll want to be sure to discuss any prior skin issues or concerns with Dr. Guarino.

Chemical Peel Procedure

People who want to improve the texture of their skin often choose chemical peels because they target certain layers of the skin. There are several different types of peels that can achieve a wide range of skin-enhancing results.

  • Brightening Pigment Balancing Peel Treatment: Reverse the effects of sun, hormones, and inflammation on skin with this brightening treatment.
  • Nourish and Hydrate Micropeel Sensitive Treatment: Clear pores, nourish, and hydrate the skin with this sensitive treatment that will leave your skin looking healthier and more supple.
  • Retinol Booster: Many chemical peels can be combined with a retinol booster to brighten and even skin tone for a refreshed, youthful appearance.

These are just a few examples of chemical peels that may be right for your skin. Depending on the type of peel performed, recovery can last for a few days to a few weeks, but Dr. Guarino will guide you every step of the way to make sure your results are the best they can be.
