Peeling is perhaps the most noticeable side effect of chemical peels, especially if you’re opting for a medium-to-deep peel. Peeling is a sign that your top layer of skin is shedding, making way for the beautiful skin that’s hiding underneath.
4. Slight burning sensation.
Burning is another common side effect of chemical peels, especially during the first few days after your treatment. Your dermatologist can provide you with recommended creams that can help soothe any temporary burning sensations you feel.
5. Inability to tan.
This is a surprising side effect, but it’s common with patients who undergo deeper peels. You may have a harder time tanning after a chemical peel, which, to be honest, is a good thing for your skin!
