+ What are the benefits of a Chemical Peel Treatment?
A Chemical Peel treatment can help rejuvenate the skin, improve texture, reduce discoloration, and smooth wrinkles and scars. This treatment promotes collagen production and healthy skin growth. It can also help hydrate the skin, clear up breakouts, and in some cases reduce dark eye circles. By removing
layers of dead skin build-up and congestion, Chemical Peel can increase the effectiveness of skincare products at home by allowing deeper penetration of these products into the skin.
+ When will I start seeing results?
Skin peeling usually starts a few days after treatment. It may take about 2-6 weeks for the treatment to show results. A few Chemical Peel treatments may be necessary to get the best results.
+ How long do the results last?
The results of Chemical Peel can last up to a year or more. Many of the benefits, such scar or discoloration removal, can last many years. It is important to get multiple treatments to prolong the results.
+ When should I get a Chemical Peel treatment?
Chemical Peel can be beneficial to anyone over the age of 18. Many people in their 20’s and 30’s get Chemical Peel to hydrate dry skin and reduce their acne scars, sun damage, skin spots and discoloration. Older clients can benefit from Chemical Peel’s ability to smoothen wrinkles, remove age spots, hydrate dry skin, improve skin texture, stimulate collagen production and give back the skin’s youthful and vibrant look. In addition, Chemical Peel increases the rate of skin cell replacement, which dramatically slows down in our late 20’s. This helps us constantly replace old skin cells with younger and healthier ones.
+ How long does a Chemical Peel treatment take?
A Chemical Peel treatment usually takes 20 to 30 minutes to perform.
+ Does a Chemical Peel treatment hurt?
During the treatment you may feel a little tingling sensation on your skin, but you should not experience any pain. After the treatment, the skin might become slightly sensitive, but no pain is expected. This sensitivity usually resolves within days.
+ How long is the downtime post treatment?
After the treatment, the skin can become red, dry and tight, although these effects might be less noticeable with each repeated treatment. Most daily activities can be resumed immediately after treatment. Avoid sun exposure during the peeling process and avoid strenuous exercises, heavy sweating, hot showers, and jacuzzi for 2-3 days. Prescription topicals should be avoided until peeling is done. Use of gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen can enhance the healing process. Do not try to pick or peel the flaking skin. The skin should not be manipulated or irritated. It is not recommended to get a Chemical Peel treatment within 2 weeks of a special occasion.
+ Is Chemical Peel safe?
A Chemical peel treatment is generally a very safe procedure when performed by a highly trained and experienced medical professional. The word “chemical” often scares people from receiving this treatment; however, most medications we take on a daily basis can be considered a chemical by this definition, including over-the-counter pain medications or first-aid ointments for cuts or wounds. In addition, the active ingredients for most Chemical Peels are actually derived from natural sources such as sugar cane, sour milk or wintergreen.
+ What are the common side effects of Chemical Peel?
The most common side effect of a Chemical Peel treatment is redness or minor irritation of the skin, which usually resolves within days. Rare side effects can include changes in skin color, which is more common among darker skin tones. Other rare side effects may include scarring of skin, which can usually be resolved with antibiotics or steroids. Call us for more information about the side effects of Chemical Peel.
