Key Benefits of Chemical Peels

Few skin treatments can offer the wide range of benefits that chemical peels offer. This simple treatment helps address signs of aging, sun damage, acne scars, and more. No matter what condition your skin is in, there is likely a peel available to help. No incisions are necessary and many peels do not even involve sedation or downtime.

What Is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are a type of treatment involving a chemical solution that we apply to the skin for a certain amount of time. This encourages outer skin layers to slough off and reveal new skin underneath. This new skin has been less affected by many common skin conditions.

Peels come in three basic types: superficial, medium, and deep. This refers to their depth of penetration and strength of ingredients. Superficial peels do not normally require any sedation or downtime. A medium peel may, while a deep peel always involves sedation and significant downtime.

What Is a Superficial Peel?

Superficial chemical peels are a gentle form of treatment that helps to exfoliate outer skin layers to brighten your complexion, treat enlarged pores, and reduce the appearance of superficial acne scars. The only real drawback to getting a superficial peel is that multiple applications may be necessary due to its mild nature.

What Is a Medium Peel?

The medium peel normally contains a chemical called TCA. This one reaches a bit more deeply into the skin than the superficial peel. It is for the treatment of skin conditions like light lines and wrinkles, superficial scars, and uneven pigmentation.

What Are Deep Peels Used For?

Deep chemical peels are a very strong form of treatment that helps to correct deep acne scars, deep wrinkles, stretch marks, and other common skin conditions. Due to its strength, the deep peel requires a good bit of healing time at home. If you are able to set aside a few weeks to remain in seclusion while you heal, you should be very satisfied with the dramatic results that come with this form of treatment.

What Should I Do after My Peel?

Your skin will be a bit sensitive and raw after your chemical peel treatment since we have removed some part of the outer skin layer that normally protects it. Be sure to baby your skin while it heals by refraining from prolonged sun exposure and undergoing any other type of skin treatment in the area that was treated. You should also remain hydrated and avoid activities that could excessively dry your skin.
