Chemical peels can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Acne and acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots and sun damage
- Uneven skin texture and tone
How is the procedure done?
During the treatment, the chemical solution will be applied to the skin, and left on for a specific amount of time, depending on the type of peel and the desired level of penetration. The treatment may cause a mild burning or stinging sensation, but this can be controlled with a cool compress or fan. After the treatment, your skin will be red and may be sensitive to the touch, but these side effects are temporary and will subside within a few days.
How many sessions are required?
The number of sessions required will depend on the individual case, but most patients will require multiple sessions for optimal results. Our medical esthetician will recommend the best treatment plan for you after the consultation.
What should I expect after the treatment?
After the treatment, your skin may be red, sensitive and dry. You may also experience flaking or peeling of the skin, which is a normal part of the healing process. It is important to protect your skin from the sun and to use a good sunscreen after the treatment to help reduce the risk of complications.
