THREE TREATMENTS IN ONE
What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are aesthetic procedures performed to achieve better skin tone and texture, and to diminish fine lines, especially on the face. These treatments remove the outer layers of skin damaged by age, sun, acne, wrinkles, or pigmentation problems to improve scarring, discoloration and hyperpigmentation problems. Removing the outer skin prompts the body to generate a new layer of skin cells, restoring radiant, hydrated and healthy skin.
What Can I Expect at CosMedic LaserMD?
At the time of your procedure, any active skin infection or acne needs to be under control in order to maximize results. There are several different types of chemical solutions that can be used. At CosMedic LaserMD, we will select what is best for you based on your skin condition, skin tone and desired result.
How Do Chemical Peels Work?
Chemical peels range in acid concentration from mild to deep. Your particular peel type will be dependent on your specific skin care needs. Depending on the type of chemical peel, a reaction similar to sunburn occurs following the peel’s application. This is accompanied by redness and scaling that ends within 3-7 days.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
Most of the chemical peels available at our clinic generally take 15-30 minutes to apply. However, this time may vary depending on your individual skincare needs. During a peel session, most people feel a slight burning and stinging sensation. This feeling usually lasts about 5-10 minutes. In addition to these treatments, we also offer various skincare products to help nourish your skin.
Results of Chemical Peels
Mild peels offer a nice radiance and glow with zero downtime. This variety may be repeated at four week intervals until optimal results are reached. Medium and deep chemical peels may result in some slight swelling, redness, and sensitivity. Afterward, your skin will peel over a period of 7-14 days. You’ll need to avoid direct sunlight for several months after a chemical peel since your new skin will be fragile and prone to irritation.
Additional Skin Care Options
Chemical peels are an important adjunct to skin care. They help maximize and expedite the results that can be achieved through skin care. We will recommend dermaplaning as adjunctive treatment to a peel regimen as well.
