The chemical peel is one of the most popular types of skin rejuvenation treatments available at our medical spa. It offers a wide range of benefits including wrinkle reduction, skin tone improvement, and reductions in the signs of sun damage. Each product contains different active ingredients and works on different areas of the face.
What are Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel is a medical-grade chemical solution that helps to peel away a portion of the outer skin layer to promote new skin growth. Peels help treat conditions like wrinkles, scars, blemishes, and hyperpigmentation. The type that would most benefit you can be determined at your initial consultation.
Which Peel is Best for Dull Skin Complexion?
If your skin is looking dull and tired, a superficial chemical peel containing lactic or glycolic acids can help by removing the buildup of inorganic material on the surface of your skin. Superficial peels also help in cases of very light wrinkles and superficial acne scars.
Which Peel Can Help Reduce Lines and Wrinkles?
Medium chemical peels containing something called TCA are often used in the cases of light lines and wrinkles since they are able to better penetrate deeper layers of the skin.
Which Peel Would Help with Deep Acne Scars?
A deep chemical peel consisting of carbolic acid or phenol is typically used to address more stubborn skin complaints like deep wrinkles and scars.
How to Care for My Skin After My Chemical Peel Treatment?
Your skin will be quite sensitive after your peel at the medical spa, so be sure to treat it particularly gently. Use a light touch when you are applying any type of topical product. Only use products that have a proven track record of not irritating your skin. Avoid rubbing your skin or trying to remove damaged skin tissue before it is ready.
Limit your time outdoors and your exposure to the sun. You should also remain hydrated since moist skin is more vigorous and resilient. Avoid activities like vigorous exercise that can excessively dry your skin and make it more vulnerable to damage until your skin has time to heal from your treatment.
