Each patient has different skin care concerns and there are a variety of chemical peels that are slightly different to help address your specific concerns. Dr. Fugo’s medical esthetician will decide which best suits you after thoroughly analyzing your skin. The mixture is applied to your skin and either self neutralized or gently removed with a neutralizing wash after anywhere from 5-15 min. The downtime for lighter peels is very minimal leaving you with dry, slightly red skin for a couple of days. Where as the stronger peels will result in redness and peeling of the skin for about 5 days.
