Chemical Peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. A chemical solution is applied to the skin which causes it to separate, peel off and allows new skin to regenerate. The new skin is smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin and may also be more even in color.
WHAT CAN A CHEMICAL PEEL DO?
Chemical peeling is used to treat fine lines, especially under the eyes and around the mouth. Wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging and hereditary factors can be reduced. In addition, pigmentation of the skin in the form of sun spots, age spots, liver spots, freckles, blotchiness due to taking birth control pills and skin that is dull in texture and color may be improved with chemical peeling. Areas of sun-damaged skin and scaling patches may improve after chemical peeling as well.
Chemical Peels can treat:
- Mechanical Acne
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Acne Scarring
- Aging Skin
- Brown Age Spots
HOW ARE CHEMICAL PEELS PERFORMED?
The procedure may be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs. Superficial, medium or deep peels may be used to improve damaged skin. As a rule, the deeper the peel, the longer the recovery time. WE SUGGEST LIGHT PEELS ONLY, WITH NO DOWN TIME. These are done with a vinegar-like solution.
WHAT SHOULD BE EXPECTED AFTER TREATMENT?
Depending upon the type of peel, there may be a mild sun burning sensation. Superficial peeling usually involves mininal redness followed by scaling that lasts 3-5 days. You can wear make-up if you desire.
