CHEMICAL PEELS

DSC_5806.jpg

There are a variety of chemical peels with some being more aggressive than others. Three glycolic acid peels can produce similar results to a year’s worth of Retin-A anti-aging creams. Side effects can vary from patient to patient, with most patients experiencing peeling, redness, and flaking. It is important for patients to wear sunscreen and try to avoid the sun in the weeks after their peel. Results can be seen as quickly as two to three weeks. Many patients return periodically to maintain rejuvenated skin. 

Peeling is exfoliation. When your skin peels or flakes after a treatment your skin is shedding dead or damaged surface cells and revealing new, healthy skin cells on the surface. This action is called cell turnover. Supporting the cell turnover process with chemical peels is what allows the skin to shed dead cells and bring new, fresh skin to the surface, free of signs of aging, sun damage, dirt, and debris. The result is glowing, healthy skin.

Peels are easy to work into a busy lifestyle. There is no downtime with chemical peels — you’ll leave your appointment with a healthy glow and able to carry on with your regular activities. There are steps to ensure that your results are maximized. You will receive a post-procedure regimen following your treatment will enhance your results and keep peeling and redness to a minimum.

  • If you are nursing or pregnant
  • If you have taken Accutane in the last 6 months




What if I Don't Experience Peeling? Was My Treatment Effective?


You won’t necessarily experience visible peeling. That doesn’t mean your treatment was ineffective. Everyone experiences different levels of peeling, dependent upon skin type, resilience, type of peel, and the number of layers applied. Some people experience ‘sheeting,’ when large portions of the skin peel off at once. Some experience ‘flaking,’ when small pieces of skin peel off, similar to dry, winter skin, or mild peeling after a sunburn. Others experience exfoliation that is not visible. If you don’t peel, your skin is still exfoliating. In this case, the exfoliation is happening on a cellular level that can’t be seen by the naked eye. Typically, the deeper the peel you receive, the more extensive peeling you will experience.
