Chemical Peel Post-Care

At Aisthetikos, we care about your glowing skin and seeing results. Your results will be specific to you because your skin is unique. Learn more about what to expect from our chemical peel treatments and how to maximize the benefits with our post-care instructions.

Visit us for a consultation so we can accurately assess your skin and personalize a treatment plan for you.

What to Expect

During your chemical peel, you may experience a slight stinging sensation as the treatment activates on your skin. Post-treatment, you may notice:

  • The skin may peel or take on a sunburned appearance 48 hours after treatment.
  • Peeling and redness may last for 3–5 days.
  • The amount of peeling will vary depending on skin preparation, the condition of your skin, and home care products used pre-treatment.
  • The amount of peeling is not an indication of the effectiveness of the treatment.

Post-Care Instructions

Our medical-grade chemical peels are meant to revitalize your skin and have you glowing. The following list of post-care instructions will maximize the benefits of your chemical peel.

  • IMPORTANT: use sunscreen with SPF 30+ daily and avoid direct sun exposure for at least one week.
  • The night after your treatment, rinse the skin gently with only water and pat dry with a clean cloth.
  • Do not rub, pick, or pull the peeling skin as it can result in scarring.
  • Avoid vigorous physical activities (running, pilates, hot yoga, fitness classes), swimming, and hot showers for at least the first 24 hours after treatment — 48 hours is recommended.
  • Avoid harsh cleansers, washcloths, scrubs, or loofahs for 48 hours after treatment (gentle cleansers such as Vivier® Vitamin C Scrub are safe to use). 
  • Do not use products containing Salicylic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Retinol, prescription Retinoids, or Benzoyl Peroxide for up to 48 hours after treatment or until peeling and dryness subsides, whichever comes last.
  • Vivier® products that should be avoided in this time frame include Medicated Wash, AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cream, Exfoliant Forte, 0.3% Retinol SR Complex, Peptide CR Crème, GrenzCine® Neck, GrenzCine® Body, and Acne Treatment Lotion.
  • Do not have any other facial treatments for at least one week following the procedure.

Please contact us if you develop a fever, drainage from the site, skin ulceration, redness persisting for more than 6 days, a rash, or cold sores.
