Chemical peels are a type of cosmetic treatment involving the application of special solutions like phenol, alpha hydroxy, glycolic, and lactic acids. The procedure works by removing damaged skin layers that become blistered, revealing new skin underneath that is less wrinkled than the older skin. In addition to their applications for facial aging, chemical peels are also helpful in the treatment of skin issues on other areas.
A Closer Look at Chemical Peels
There are different basic types of chemical peels. Each type has its particular ingredients, benefits, and uses and is defined by its strength and depth of penetration.
For example, gentle acids are typically used for lighter types of chemical peels. They have the strength to penetrate the epidermis skin layer and gently exfoliate for the removal of rough skin and the treatment of mild skin discoloration.
Deeper types of peels are usually recommended when you require treatment for problems like age spots, acne, wrinkles, and moderate skin discoloration.
How is a Chemical Peel Performed?
We administer a chemical peel in the comfort of our our office after determining your major skin issues and skin type. We will thoroughly clean your skin in the treatment area and follow up with the application of the solution of choice. You may feel a slight stinging or tingling sensation at this time. After the solution has remained on your skin for the prescribed amount of time, we will remove it and you can be on your way.
