Thorough cleansing of the facial skin each and every day will certainly help slow down the visual signs of aging. However, science has shown us that the body can be stimulated to rejuvenate the skin as long as the procedures performed are the proper ones. Chemical peels help to create newer, healthier skin tissue without the need for surgery or abrasion. Peel treatments come in a variety of flavors, but all of them target dead or damaged cells. Getting rid of these cells is the best way to jumpstart the rejuvenation process. Adding this cosmetic treatment to your skin care regimen can result in glowing, smooth skin that will make you look years younger.
Types of Peel Treatments
The alphahydroxy acid (AHA) peel is a light treatment used to address conditions such as sun spots, uneven pigmentation, large pores, and other mild skin issues. This peel gently removes the outer layer of the skin, revealing a new, healthy layer of skin cells underneath.
Our medium-depth trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel uses a slightly stronger acid. This peel is recommended for deeper skin issues such as severe discoloration.
A deep peel treatment uses phenol to treat more intense issues such as deeper wrinkles, pre-cancerous growths and sun damage. This is our strongest peel. During your consultation, we will help you decide which type of chemical peel is right for you.
Choosing the Right Treatment
During your consultation with us, we will discuss the advantages of each type of peel treatment. Everyone has specific concerns, and no two people have skin problems that are exactly the same. This is why it’s important to have us look at your facial skin closely so that we can recommend the proper peel treatment that will produce the desired results.
Chemical peels will help minimize the appearance of wrinkles, age and liver spots, injury and acne scars, and other discolorations. The type of treatment suggested depends on the severity and depth of these skin problems.
Recovery from Chemical Peel Treatment
A light treatment such as the AHA peel involves no recovery period. Normal activities can be resumed at once. Medium or deep peels may involve a short downtime, which we will discuss with you when you come in for your first appointment.
Depending on the type of treatment you receive, you can choose to undergo a series of chemical peels to maintain the desired appearance of your facial skin. Many of our clients have worked these treatments into their skin care regimen. Cleansing and exfoliation help maintain good skin texture and tone, but a chemical peel also jumpstarts a rejuvenation process that includes the creation of more collagen.
