Frequently Asked Questions
Redness, scabbing, and swelling are typical post-chemical peel side effects. Chemical peels may trigger outbreaks or infections.
Rarely, recipients of deep chemical peel may suffer from skin discoloration or heart, kidney, or liver damage. These side effects highlight the importance of seeking a chemical peel from a reputable source such as Renew.
Before you receive your peel, you should limit your sun exposure. Avoid self-tanners and waxing and any medicines that may act as a blood thinner.
Scheduling a series of chemical peels is often recommended for optimal results. Mild peels can be done every few weeks while deep peels will need longer downtime between sessions.
Chemical peel aftercare is more about the don’ts than the do’s. Give your skin some space. Don’t wash it with exfoliants or apply retinol, and try to avoid activities or environments that might cause you to sweat.
