Chemical peels are a fantastic way to shed dry, damaged skin and bring to life the fresh, healthy skin below. After the peeling process, you are left with a smooth, glowing complexion.

But what happens when there’s no peeling involved?

Does it mean that nothing actually happened?

We’re sharing why this can sometimes happen and what it means for your results.

Here are some things to remember when getting a peel:

  • Even if you’re not peeling like a snake shedding its skin, it doesn’t mean the peel didn’t work. Well exfoliated skin does not peel as heavily, but still benefits from a chemical peel as it is working on a cellular level.
  • Lack of peeling can be cause by an impacted stratum corneum. The stratum corneum is the outermost layer of the epidermis, consisting of dead cells. When these cells become impacted, it can take multiple treatments to break them down.
  • With everything in life, balance is key. It is important to moisturize the skin after a peel. However, over-moisturizing can slow down or stop the peeling process.
  • Following the post care procedure given by your aesthetician is essential for optimal peel results. Those steps after the initial treatment are just as important as the treatment itself.

It is certainly peel season as everyone is getting them in before it’s time for the summer sun. So keep these helpful hints in mind as you shed your winter skin and prepare for your radiant complexion.

Check out our list of peels offered at Back to 30 and schedule a consultation with one of our highly trained practitioners to discuss which one is the best option for you.
