Superficial chemical peels are topical exfoliants used to exfoliate the skin, stimulate skin cell turnover, and restore the skin to a more youthful appearance. Many skin conditions can be improved from receiving a series of chemical peels. Dull skin will appear more radiant, rough skin will become smoother, sun damaged skin will even out, fine lines and acne scarring may be softened.
I understand that anytime the skin barrier is compromised, there is a small risk of infection. I will contact my esthetician immediately if I have any concerns. I understand that following the treatment my skin may appear red and feel like it has a slight sunburn.
Possible side effects may include and are not limited too: slight or extreme redness, swelling, stinging, itchy, tenderness, dry and flaking skin. I UNDERSTAND THAT I AM NOT TO PICK THE FLAKING SKIN AS THIS COULD CAUSE UNWANTED PIGMENTATION. These side effects will gradually diminish over time, healing may take 5-7 days or longer.
The chemical peel treatment has been fully explained and my questions and concerns have been addressed.
I acknowledge that no guarantee has been given to me as to the percentage of improvement expected following treatment, due to each individual's unique reactions. I understand that no specific results are guaranteed.
