Chemical Peels

It’s Fall Y’all, which means Chemical Peel season!

Chemical Peels can completely transform the skin. A chemical peel is the application of a chemical solution that creates a controlled injury, causing the skin to shed and stimulate collagen. Peels are a good method for rejuvenating the epidermis and upper dermal layers of the skin. They can improve texture, increase cell turnover, reduce fine lines, reduce sun damage and hyperpigmentation, even out skin tone and give the skin a glow. 

Depending on the type of chemical peel, they can be repeated every three to four weeks. The different strength of acids will treat at different depths of the skin. The downtime of a chemical peel can vary depending on which peel is used. If choosing a superficial peel, the peeling process can last 2-5 days. Generally, the stronger the peel the longer the peeling process. It is important to stop using retinols, AHA’s, BHA’s and benzoyl peroxide three day prior to your treatment because they can cause a stronger reaction or increase skin sensitivity.

It is always best to come in and consult before a treatment. Some patients may need to prep the skin with retinols and pigment inhibitors for a better outcome. Call to schedule your chemical peel at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates!
