Chemical peels aren’t right for everyone, and not all doctors and clinics have the same experience, education or successful results. Make sure your chemical peel provider is a trained and experienced plastic surgeon. Check all qualifications and memberships. Its also worth enquiring as to hygiene and safety standards at any clinics - check that they are compliant with internationally-recognized procedures.
Medical Departures helps you with your research. We do quality checks on each surgeon’s education, professional memberships, and experience. Check out before & after photos, and read the reviews. You’ll also have peace of mind, since we do legal and criminal checks.
Your doctor will clean your skin with a medical degreaser. This removes all skin oils from the skin. The chemical peel solution is then applied to your skin. The chemical remains on the skin for anywhere between 3-5 minutes, or up to 4 hours, depending on the kind, strength, and goal of the peel.

Sun protection is vital after any type of chemical peel.
Chemical Peels application is relatively quick, and done in only a few moments. Some peels are removed after around 5 minutes, and others “self-neutralize” after a few hours.

Superficial peels heal in about 1-7 days. Skin will be red at first, and you can wear make up the next day.Medium peels heal within 1 to 2 weeks. Your skin may be red and swollen, eyelids may swell, you may have blisters at first. You’ll be prescribed antiviral medication, while skin crusts and peels off in 7-14 days.
