A skin resurfacing procedure that ranges from light to deep and are very effective for improving the appearance of large facial and nose pores.
A chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers so that when the skin grows back is smoother, soft, and more vibrant.
Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, discolored skin and scars, usually on the face. They can be done alone or combined with other cosmetic procedures. And they can be done at different depths. Deeper chemical peels offer more dramatic results but also take longer to recover from. At DrSkin we know there’s no one size fits all solutions so offer a wide range of peels no matter your skin condition or goals.
How Does DrSkin Help With Chemical Peels?
Tired of your skin feeling blah? What if you could peel away the dark spots, discoloration, fine lines, and clogged pores? Well, you can—with chemical peels from DrSkin. We offer customized chemical peels for a variety of skin conditions. If you want glowing skin that looks healthier than ever before, consider a facial peel.
What Are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel, also known as a facial peel, is a type of skin resurfacing treatment that is used to remove the topmost layer of skin. The peeling agent used will sit for a period of time, sometimes ranging from 5 to 60 minutes. During that time, your skin sheds the outer layer, removing dull, dried skin. This peeling effect may last for a few days after your initial session.
As your skin peels, your body responds by starting the healing process. New skin that is smoother, healthier, and more even in tone starts to grow. The end result? Fresh skin with less fine lines, wrinkles, and improved texture.
At DrSkin, we have peels that work superficially and at medium depth to reduce acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and more. Consult with us today about our chemical peels, so we can get you started on the road to radiant skin.
Benefits of Chemical Peels
The benefits of a chemical peel depends on its ingredients and purpose. That said, here are some of the benefits you can expect when selecting a facial peel treatment:
● Smaller pores
● Smoother wrinkles and fine lines
● Less acne
● Improved hyperpigmentation
● Softer texture
● Non-invasive treatment with minimal downtime
● Treatments can be customized to suit your needs
What Kind of Chemical Peels Are There?
There are several forms of acid available to create peels that treat the skin at different depths. The three that we use at DrSkin most commonly include:
- Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs): This includes fruit, lactic, mandelic, and glycolic acids, which are among the lightest. Chemical peels using AHAs will leave your skin looking smoother and brighter. Fine wrinkles, dryness, acne, and pigmentation can all be treated with AHAs.
- Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA): Common in medium-depth peels, TCA works on superficial blemishes, surface wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and so on.
- Phenol: The strongest, deepest peel you can receive. Phenol peels are for those who are looking to remove coarse wrinkles and damaged skin.
How Are Chemical Peels Performed?
You are not limited just to your face! Chemical peels can be performed on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs. Depending on the condition you are trying to treat, a superficial, medium, or deep peel will be recommended by one of our experienced staff. Prior to treatment, you may be asked to stop certain medications. This will be discussed during your initial consultation.
We perform chemical peels in our cozy office, where our team will be with you around the clock. The process is simple. Once the skin has been cleansed to remove oils, you receive protection for your eyes and hair. A combination of solutions may be blended together during your session.
The solutions will be applied to your skin then left to sit for a designated amount of time. Eventually, the peeling begins. You may experience a hot sensation as the chemical peel begins to soak into your skin. Deeper peels may sting.
What Should I Expect Post-Chemical Peel?
Depending on the kind of facial peel you received, you may leave the office feeling like you have been sunburned. Superficial peeling includes some redness, then scaling, which typically lasts 3-5 days.
For a medium or deep peel, you can expect a little swelling alongside peeling. In some cases, blistering occurs.
It is important to limit overexposure to sunlight, as you are more susceptible to injury. Our team will supply you with aftercare instructions.
Are Chemical Peels Right For Me?
Chemical peels are available for most individuals. These days, the chemicals used in these kinds of treatments are much gentler, and so people with sensitive skin or darker tones can enjoy the benefits of facial peels.hat said, there are some populations who may be exempt from this treatment, including anyone who is pregnant or nursing. Any active acne breakouts must also end before a chemical peel can be done.
If you are using retinoids, you will need to stop taking them at least 3-4 days before your chemical peel appointment.
At DrSkin, we have options for everyone. During your consultation, if it is decided that a chemical peel may not be right for you, we will suggest a number of alternatives.
