Is a Chemical Peel Painful?

Chemical Peels do cause a burning sensation as soon as the peel is applied and can last around 5 to 10 minutes. Once the peel is removed you can feel a tingling sensation but not for long.

After every peel I apply a cooling mask suited to the skin which relieves and burning or tingling. The face can be left red after the treatment but that will settle pretty quickly depending on how sensitive the skin is.
