Undoubtably, pain is an individual experience. Generally, chemical peels do not hurt. From time to time, however, you may experience a little tingling, tightness, or a change in temperature.
Given these points, while you should not feel pain during or after the procedure, slight increased sensitivity may be experienced after. To avoid irritation or discomfort on your newly resurfaced skin, adhere to the following advice:
- Do not exfoliate for 48 hours
- Steer clear of the gym for 24 hours
