Perhaps your skin is looking a little dull or flat. Or maybe the texture of your skin is uneven, and you’d like to address it without resorting to surgery.
Chemical peels are highly effective non-surgical treatments that can aid in enhancing the overall quality of your facial skin and natural beauty. Chemical peels help to resurface the top layers of skin, increase your skin cell turnover so that your natural beauty can shine bright, and give your face a replenished look. Through a series of treatments, chemical peels stimulate the production of the underlying layer of skin cells, stimulating collagen and elastin levels which leave you with healthier-looking, supple skin.
Who should consider a chemical peel?
Today, it is common for men and women of varying ages to have chemical peels. Chemical peels are for anyone who wants their skin to glow. Chemical peels also help fight acne and acne scars, enlarged pores, rough and oily skin, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (age spots), and photoaging by exfoliating the outer layer of dead skin cells, thus stimulating new skin cells to surface so that your underlying radiance can be revealed. If you feel as though you have poor skin quality or dullness, you may be able to benefit from the rejuvenating results of a chemical peel.
How long does a chemical peel take?
Routinely, chemical peels take somewhere between 20-30 minutes to complete. There is minimal to no downtime. Each chemical peel is exclusively tailored to you and your skin requirements. Even patients with extremely sensitive skin can reap the benefits of having a chemical peel.
How often can I have a chemical peel?
The number of chemical peels greatly depends on the condition of your skin. Chemical peels may be performed as frequently as every two weeks depending on your skin and the type of results desired.
You may experience a touch of redness following your chemical peel treatment, which is expected and should decrease within a few hours. You may find that your skin is a little bit more sensitive to the sun. For this reason, it is recommended that you avoid the sun for about one week after a chemical peel. If you are going to be exposed to the sun for any length of time, it is recommended that you protect your skin by wearing chemical-free sunblock on your face.
