Peel Appeal

A Chemical Peel is an aesthetic procedure performed to address a variety of skin concerns including skin rejuvenation, anti-aging, hyperpigmentation, acne and acne scarring. Removing the outer skin prompts the body to generate a new layer of skin cells which enhances the skin’s appearance as well as improving its functionality. Chemical peels are classified by the depth of penetration into the skin ranging from very superficial to medium-depth. Our providers will select a peel based on a thorough skin evaluation and consultation.

REASONS FOR CONSIDERING A CHEMICAL PEEL

  • Reduce facial wrinkles and lines
  • Improve sun-damaged skin
  • Correct age spots and pigmentation problems
  • Lighten scars (especially from acne)
  • Treat precancerous skin lesions
  • Improve texture
  • Improve acne breakouts
  • Improve texture of skin

GENERAL PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY PROCESS

At the time of your procedure, any active skin disease, infection, or acne must be under control in order to maximize results. There are several different types of chemical solutions which can be used, ranging from a mild solution to a very strong one. The provider will select what is best for the patient based on their skin condition, color, and desired result.

During the procedure, the skin is first cleansed of oils. A solution is then carefully applied and is allowed to remain on the skin for a short time in order to remove the layers of damaged skin. At this point, the skin may feel tight. The skin is then neutralized and cleansed. Finally, an ointment is applied to the skin to aid in healing. It is important to allow 7 days for the peeling process to complete before resuming home care products. Detailed post-care instructions will be given depending upon the extent of the chemical peel. Please see our pre and post treatment instructions here.
