What are the side effects, solutions and warnings of chemical peels?

Johnny Yu

ypical Conditions:
A temporary burning or tingling sensation has been noted upon initial contact as well as heightened skin sensitivity, redness and peeling. These are very normal and will be disappeared soon.

Solutions:
If the above or any uncomfortable symptoms persist for longer period, apply 1% hydrocortisone cream you may easily find at any drug store for a few dollars. Consult with your physician, if those don’t disappear more than 2-3 days after hydrocortisone cream is applied.

Recommendation:
MaxLife USA, Inc offers serums and creams types of post chemical products, which are very effective to soothe, calm, hydrate the skin before, during and after Chemical Peels. Info on Post Chemical

1. Never use manual exfoliators nor scrubbing brushes within 48 hours of using a peel.
