This refers to a treatment that does not usually cause immediate exfoliation and only removes the outer layer of skin or the stratum corneum. As treatments are repeated, the skin will experience a mild sloughing.
These peels affect the intra-epidermal layer, and exfoliation occurs within two to three days after application. The skin goes through very little down time. Peeling consists of light flaking similar to a sunburn peel.
The peeling solution can feel very warm, tingly, itchy and hot. The intensity varies depending on the strength of the peel.
After your Peel treatment, the skin may be red and feel tight and irritated like a sunburn or wind burn.
The following days after your peel the skin can feel tight, dry and will flake and peel anywhere from 2 to 14 days depending on the depth of the peel.
