What to Expect

Before, During, and After a Chemical Peel in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation.

Prior to your chemical peel Houston patients will meet with one of our expert aestheticians or providers for a one-on-one consultation. During this time, we'll discuss your desired results, aesthetic goals, skin tone and type, capacity for downtime, and more.

2. Approve Your Treatment Plan.

Dr. Downey and Dr. Bullocks collaborate on every patient case to best advise you on addressing your concerns. If a chemical peel in Houston is the best course of action for you, we'll customize a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan that takes into account your unique needs.

3. Getting a Chemical Peel.

First, your provider will thoroughly cleanse your face to remove any detritus. Then, we'll take precautions to protect your eyes, hair, and clothing. Next, we systematically apply the chemical solution to the treatment area. You may experience slight warming as the solution dissolves the top layer of dead skin cells.

4. Follow Up.

Following your chemical peel in Houston, we'll schedule you for any follow-up appointments. We recommend getting a chemical peel every month or so to maintain results! Your downtime will be determined by how deep your chemical peel penetrates.
