The state of your skin after a peel depends on what kind of peel you had. The superficial peels, like those at Skin Laboratory, have limited effects, the medium peels may cause some redness and the deeper peels may require weeks to recover. During a chemical peel experiences range from a mild degree of “tingling” to a “warm” feeling; much like that of a sunburn. Occasionally there is a slight itchy sensation while the acid is in contact with the skin. There may also be a few brief minutes of a strong burning or tingling sensation on the skin which will quickly subside before the end of the procedure. Different degrees of intensity are adjusted to match your preference and comfort level. If you sense burning too intense to tolerate remove the peel.
