How it works
A facial peel or chemical peel procedure works by creating a controlled wound, which allows new skin to replace the previous epidermis. Although this sounds scary, the professional staff at Kevitch, Chung, and Jan Aesthetic Surgery Associates takes special care to make it as comfortable as possible. Most patients have a reaction similar to a sunburn, depending on the chemical peel, with a burning sensation that should not last more than five to ten minutes. A cool compress can help ease the stinging as well as minor pain medication if you are particularly sensitive to pain.
The process of applying a chemical facial peel is relatively quick. After thoroughly cleaning your skin, we will apply the chemical solutions to small areas of your skin. Healing time depends on the depth of treatment and the type of chemical facial peel administered.
