chemical peels can make your skin appear softer, healthier, regenerated and more balanced in color
Chemical peels are an intense exfoliating process which uses chemical products to remove dead cells on the surface of the skin, making your skin appear softer, healthier, regenerated and more balanced in color. The visibility of acne scars is reduced and wrinkles are noticeably smoother. Chemical peels can also be used to treat sun damaged skin, hyper pigmentation and tired looking skin caused by a build up of dead skin cells.
It is an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. The exfoliation of the outer layers of dead skin reveals a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and color. A chemical peel is an acid solution used to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin. In performing chemical peels, certified technicians apply alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), or phenol to the skin.
An ideal candidate for a chemical peel is in good physical health, understands the procedure, and has realistic expectations of the outcome. You will most likely to be pleased with the results of a chemical peel if your goal is to alleviate acne, smooth wrinkles, improve skin texture, eliminate age spots, or reduce the effects of sun damage.
Deep chemical peels involve a longer procedure and longer recovery time that lasts up to several weeks. Patients who want to correct blotches caused by sun exposure or age, minimize coarse wrinkles may benefit from a deep peel.
Potential deep chemical peel candidates should be aware that the treatment may take an hour or more. Anyone who decides on this procedure should be prepared for a long, slow recovery period, and should wear sunscreen whenever exposed to sun.
