Dryness after chemical peels
A lot of times post chemical peel, the skin can be very dry. Which can make it look crepey. Follow the directions your office gave you, and moisturize/apply sunscreen. This should help some of the crepiness look less apparent. Additionally, your skin will take some time to fully show results of the chemical peel, so be patient.
Chemical peels are designed to remove the top layer of your skin to let your body to reproduce a newer, better skin. It takes at least 6 weeks for the new skin to reach its normal texture. Be patient before to form a definite opinion.
