What can cause small allergic like bumps after acid peels?
I gave myself and my husband a peel yesterday. By early evening, we each had small bumps. Mine were where I had some milia popping up. This morning all bumps are gone. Peel happening as planned!
yes to what everyone above has said and also in my experience, this commonly happens with glycolic acids peels and when combining glycolic peels with microderm or dermaplaning. Its not always a adverse effect, rather a common skin reaction to the acid that resolves itself quickly. Glycolic is such a small molecule and it penetrates the skin very fast. It can cause that irritation in the form of bumps and little whelps. Usually after about 8-12 hours it will go away. When it happens, i give the patient a low dose cortisone cream like locoid to keep on it for the next day or two to calm the inflammation
Is there any suggestions? It apparently occurs after they leave the salon. I have two separate clients that had different treatments, so it is not the product.
