We all have preferences when it comes to our favorite treatments and the results we’re working for. Some of us love facials and will choose to get a relaxing facial any chance we can. Others want more powerful results for our time spent. Botox and fillers can provide dramatic results like few other treatments can, and we understand how people will stick to their Botox appointments religiously. Then, there are the patients who want to see the glowing skin that results from a great chemical peel, and don’t mind that they need a little downtime to make that happen. Keep reading to learn why beauty-obsessed patients love chemical peels.
Okay, almost anyone can have a chemical peel, regardless of your skin type or color. While some beautifying treatments can only be used to great result on certain skin tones, chemical peels are amazing for almost any skin type. Granted, your skin color or type may lead us to recommend certain peels to give you the best results.
Chemical peels are known for helping to reverse the signs of sun damage, aging, and other skin conditions like discoloration. Peels can improve the appearance of skin by removing dead skin cells and revealing healthy new skin. Peels can be used on various parts of the body. The face, the neck, the chest, and even the back can be treated with a peel to scrub away fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, scarring from breakouts, and hyperpigmentation. You may want to come in for a series of peels, depending on the skin concerns you have and the results you’re looking for.
There are many acids that can be used in a chemical peel, including but not limited to, alphahydroxy acids (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol. This ensures that we’re tailoring the peel to what results you want. After the peel is applied, you may experience a slight burning sensation. That’s totally normal and means that the peel is working its magic. The stinging will be neutralized and then it’s just a matter of time for your results to show!
