What Are The Risks of Getting a Glycolic Acid Peel?
For those with sensitive skin types and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, it is essential that you speak to a dermatologist before doing any chemicals peels. Glycolic acid is more irritating to the skin than other chemical peels so other options may need to be considered. You may experience more adverse side effects to the treatment.
There is a downtime of 14 days post treatment where you are likely to experience side effects, such as:
- During the treatment clients may feel a slight tingling sensation on their skin.
- For those who suffer with cold sores, the peel could potentially trigger a breakout. Please speak to a member of our team before your treatment if you do suffer with cold sores.
- You may experience tightness of your skin or slightly swollen areas where you had the peel.
- You skin sensitivity may increase.
- There may be some redness to the treated area, as well as some dryness of the skin.
Always wear sunscreen after a peel to protect the fresh skin. Avoid over exposing your skin to the sun during the first week after the treatment
It is important to note that post treatment when the skin is still healing that you do not use water that is too hot on your face. Avoid steam rooms saunas etc. as this can dry your skin out.

How Many Glycolic Acid Peels are Required to See The Effects?
