Hydrating your skin after a chemical peel

Chemical peels are a popular aesthetic treatment that can rejuvenate and refresh your skin by removing dead skin cells, improving texture, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For optimal results, hydrating your skin after a chemical peel is essential. But what are the benefits of this?

Why is hydrating your skin after a chemical peel important?

After a chemical peel, restoring moisture and hydration to the skin cells can bring a range of benefits and advantages.
Firstly, hydration is essential for replenishing the moisture lost during the chemical peel. Chemical peels remove the top layer of dead skin cells, allowing new cells to take their place and promoting cell rejuvenation. However, this can leave the skin’s surface feeling dry and dehydrated. As a result, taking steps to hydrate the skin after a chemical peel can restore the moisture balance and improve the results of the chemical peel and the overall appearance of the skin.

In addition, hydrating the skin cells helps to soothe and calm the skin after a chemical peel. There are a range of chemical peel options available, and depending on the type and strength of the chemical peel used, the skin can become slightly red and sensitive afterwards. Gentle and soothing hydration can calm any irritation and allow the skin to heal and recover. This will also reduce any discomfort.

Furthermore, hydration can help to improve the overall results of the chemical peel. When the skin is properly hydrated, it is more plump, firm, and supple. This can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the texture and tone of the skin. By hydrating your skin after a chemical peel, you are helping to ensure that the results of the treatment are optimal and long-lasting.

How can the skin be hydrated after a chemical peel?

There are a number of different ways to hydrate the skin after a chemical peel, depending on your skin type and the needs of your skin. These include:

Using a gentle, hydrating cleanser- After a chemical peel, it’s important to avoid harsh or abrasive cleansers that can further irritate the skin. Instead, a gentle cleanser should be opted for to restore moisture and help to improve the appearance of the skin. Here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic we are approved retailers for SkinCeuticals and we find that the Gentle Cleanser can hydrate and soothe the skin when applied regularly, after a chemical peel.

Mesotherapy- Mesotherapy can be combined with a chemical peel effectively to offer hydration and nourishment for the skin cells. This is a treatment that involves delivering a series of superfine injections of vitamins, minerals and amino acids into the mesodermal layer of the skin. This can hydrate, nourish and rejuvenate the skin while also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, both essential for skin’s natural elasticity. After a chemical peel, mesotherapy can deliver important and much needed hydration to the deeper layers of the skin to improve the overall results. Here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic we are qualified, experienced aesthetic practitioners and we can provide mesotherapy after a chemical peel to nourish and hydrate your skin.
