What is the recovery from a chemical peel?

Depending on the intensity of the chemical peel, you may experience some reactions that are similar to when you receive a sunburn. There may be facial redness and scaling which lasts up to one week. Minor swelling, crusting and blistering are all normal.

You should take care to avoid the sun for at least a few months after a chemical peel, as your new skin will be sensitive and tender. Dr. Lee will provide a full, detailed aftercare plan for you as well as follow up visits to monitor your recovery.
