Aquaphor Protection during Chemical Peel
Aquaphor can be applied pre-treatment as a barrier around your
lips, corners of nose, and around the eyes. It acts to protect the more
sensitive and delicate skin in these areas. This helps prevent the peel from
causing too much irritation to these part of the face. This will not negatively
effect the outcome of your peel. Hope this information is helpful. Thank you
for your question.
Aquaphor used around lips, eyes and nose with a peel
Aquaphor is used in our office for all peels to protect those delicate corners of the face from having a treatment acid pooling in that area and causing a burn that is too deep. You can thank your doctor for taking the time to do this to protect those sensitive areas. No impact on the overall effectiveness of the peel.
