Exfoliate Damaged Skin And Resurface Fresh Skin

Chemical peels are skincare treatments that revitalize your complexion by removing the outer layer of skin. They use specially formulated solutions, such as glycolic or salicylic acid, to exfoliate and reveal fresh skin beneath. These peels address a range of concerns, from fine lines and uneven texture to acne scars and sun damage. By stimulating cell turnover, they promote collagen production, leading to firmer, smoother skin. With varying intensities and formulations, chemical peels can be personalized for different skin types and concerns.

Chemical Peels Treat:

  • Sun damage
  • Acne scarring
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Fine lines
  • Rough texture
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Melasma
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin dullness
  • Pre-cancerous skin lesions

Types Of Chemical Peels Include:

Light Exfoliating Peels

Light peels are for those new to chemical peels. They use gentle acids like lactic, glycolic, or salicylic acid to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin. Light peels are suitable for mild to moderate skin issues like acne, fine lines, and texture irregularities. For optimal results, they require a series of treatments spaced every two weeks and involve minimal to no downtime.

Modified Jessner’s Peels

This peel combines salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol for deeper penetration and enhanced results. Modified Jessner’s Peels are effective for reducing acne, diminishing sun damage, and improving the appearance of fine lines. Patients may experience some peeling and flaking within a few days, but downtime is generally short compared to intense peels.

TCA Peel

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels offer deeper exfoliation and are available in different concentrations, typically ranging from 10% to 20%. They are effective for improving skin texture, treating superficial blemishes, and addressing pigmentation concerns. TCA peels can be applied to the face and other areas, such as the hands, forearms, and chest. Patients can expect a downtime of several days, during which the skin may peel and flake.

  • Minimized appearance of acne scars
  • Reduced pore size

Boost Your Results With Oxygen Treatments

Oxygen treatments offer a powerful enhancement to your chemical peel. These treatments involve infusing customized serums into the skin while delivering oxygen through a specialized device. The oxygen helps strengthen the skin’s barrier and combat free radical damage caused by factors like sun exposure and environmental pollutants. By replenishing oxygen levels in the skin, oxygen treatments can amplify the results of peels and promote cellular rejuvenation.

Chemical Peels FAQs

What should I expect during a chemical peel treatment?

During a chemical peel treatment, your skincare provider will cleanse your skin before applying the peel solution. Depending on the type and strength of the peel, you may experience a tingling or warming sensation as the solution is applied. After the appropriate amount of time has passed, the peel will be neutralized, and a soothing moisturizer or sunscreen may be applied. Some peels may result in temporary redness, flaking, or peeling as the skin undergoes renewal.

How many chemical peel treatments are typically needed to see results?

The number of chemical peels needed depends on the individual’s skin concerns, the type of peel used, and the desired results. In many cases, a series of peels spaced several weeks apart may be recommended to achieve optimal results. Your skincare provider will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific goals and needs.

Is there any downtime associated with chemical peels?

The amount of downtime associated with chemical peels depends on the depth and intensity of the peel. Lighter peels may result in minimal to no downtime, with some mild redness or flaking that typically resolves within a few days. Deeper peels may cause more significant peeling, redness, and sensitivity, requiring several days to a week of downtime for recovery.

How long do the results of a chemical peel last?

The longevity of results from a peel can vary depending on factors such as the type of peel, the individual’s skin type, and skincare habits. In general, lighter peels may require more frequent maintenance to sustain results, while deeper peels may offer longer-lasting results. Consistent skincare maintenance, including sun protection, can help prolong the results.
