Chemical Peels

Chemical peels aren’t as gross as they sound. When implemented correctly, chemical peels will remove the outer layers of skin to reveal the young and healthy skin underneath resulting in a significantly improved texture of your facial skin.

A chemical peel is a treatment that causes your old, dead skin to shed off the way that reptiles shed their skin. Underneath that peel will be refreshed, younger looking skin.

The basis of a chemical peel is damaging the skin in a controlled manner. The depth range of the damage is dependent on the type of peel done. There’s the glycolic acid peel and the phenol peel. The glycolic acid peel is typically used for most surface level peels by removing the top layer of dead cells on your skin. The phenol peel is the stronger of the two peels. If you have very deep wrinkles and aged skin then this is the peel we would recommend for you. This peel goes deeper than the glycolic acid peel and targets the epidermis to make sure that those deep wrinkles are removed.

Combined with other services

Through a variety of chemical solutions that are customized according to each patient’s needs, the peel is applied to the treatment area, which will produce controlled tissue death. Sometimes, a peel is done in conjunction with other procedures. When done correctly, a chemical peel can correct facial blemishes such as acne scars, smooth wrinkles and other texture issues, and treat uneven skin pigmentation. Peels can also be used to remove precancerous growths. We say “done correctly” because there are over the counter products, but they won’t have the same results because they don’t damage the skin. Also, when getting a chemical peel or any other cosmetic procedure, be sure to use a licensed physician otherwise it could lead to some very unwanted results.

Recovery time depends on what kind of peel was done and how deep it was. With the phenol peel, the recuperation time for that is significantly longer than that of the glycolic peel.  Proper skin care after undergoing a skin peel is vital to achieving the best possible and longest lasting results while preventing infection.  The new skin that is visible after a peel is extremely sensitive, so it is imperative to protect yourself with sunscreen to avoid possible color changes to the treated area.
