Chemical Peels Defined
The human skin is one of the most fascinating organs of the human body. It serves as the shield to many forms of bacteria. It is also one of the most active organs, as it sheds dead cells constantly. When you get sunburn, your skin responds by peeling off the damaged cells and replacing them with new ones. This concept translates into chemical skin peels, forcing the skin into such a process to address wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and similar skin-related issues in the facial area.
How Does Chemical Peels Work?
Chemical peels feature a specified chemical formula to trigger the skin to rejuvenate the area on which the peel is applied to. The concept of peeling away damaged skin sounds daunting. However, if it happens on a small area, with a controlled chemical, the cosmetic results are feasible to treat problematic facial areas. If you want a non-surgical solution to treat fine lines, sun damage, or uneven skin tone, chemical peels can be the answer that you are looking for. These peels can also treat hyperpigmentation, clogged pores, and aging spots for a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance.
We offer 3 types of chemical peel treatments. Light peels take about 3 to 5 days to complete the shedding process on an applied area. These peels do not require any downtime on the patient’s behalf. They are effective for minor facial skin issues, rejuvenating your skin in the process. Medium peels take between 5 and 7 days to complete the shedding process. These peels are more potent than the light peels, which can result in some redness or flaking, dependent on the texture and health of the skin on which it is applied.
Deep peels treat hyperpigmentation, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. These peels can take several weeks to complete the shedding process. As they are so potent, the aim is to target areas that require intense peeling to effectively treat. Although the idea of skin peeling still seems like a daunting prospect, chemical peels are non-invasive and serve as a non-surgical treatment to rejuvenate the surface of the skin. We recommend that you come in for a consultation when considering these peels, so that one of our medical professionals can perform a Visia Skin Analysis and give you the necessary info about the peels.
